Madhavi Pandiri, MD

Mamata Medical College

Hello! I’m Madhavi, from Hyderabad, India. During my medical school, I developed an interest in pursuing Pathology as a specialty which led me to complete my residency in Pathology at Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad. I believe Pathology acts as a bridge between basic science research and clinical medicine which helps to implement the concepts of research, to developing tools for improved diagnosis and treatment outcome. I love the process of continued discovery that Pathology provides with wide and endless variety in the work.

After I moved to the United States, I was determined to learn the latest advancements and research in Pathology. I have had the opportunity to do an Observership in Wooster Community Hospital, Ohio. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family, watching cartoons with my daughter and gardening.

During my interview at Baystate, I perceived a friendly environment, dedicated faculty, organized and thoughtful support staff and a great balance between anatomic and clinical pathology. I knew that this would be a program where I would thrive both professionally and personally. I'm very excited to have matched here and can't wait to be a part of this incredible team.

Dr. Esma Ersoy

Hi, welcome to the World of Pathology!

This is Esma who just started to the pathology residency training recently at Baystate Medical Center. I graduated from Istanbul University School of Medicine and had a chance to get my medical education in an institution which has a hundred years of history. After my graduation, I had worked as a physician in an emergency department of a state hospital in Turkey. Actually, this experience helped me to figure out where I would like to be for my future career and that is how my experiences started in the U.S.

I worked with Dr. Rahimi as a research fellow in Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Boston University. I studied on cancer pathogenesis which includes breast carcinoma and renal carcinoma, to say in particular on novel cell adhesion molecules such as MINAR1 and TMIGD1. Then, I got accepted as a pathology resident to University of Massachusetts –Baystate Medical Center. Now is the time for me to learn more about the World of Pathology.

As a member of Pathology Department at Baystate Medical Center, I would like to say that I got a really good experience here, so far. Increasing the medical knowledge with an exceptional patient care in a friendly environment is my perception for this department. Hope to learn more and go on to serve an exceptional work as a team.

Cukurova Universitesi Tip Fakultesi

Hello, I'm Salih. I am from Turkey. After completing my medical education, I decided to pursue my career in the pathology field. To achieve my goal, I participated in a research activity for two years in Maryland. At the end of this period, I have been accepted as a resident at Baystate Medical Center.

There are many reasons to choose BMC. First of all, BMC has a very friendly environment, everyone is willing to help and answer questions regardless of whether they are technical or not. And also, high volume with unusual cases are another striking feature at BMC. Therefore I feel excited about being a part of the BMC family and consider it a great opportunity to do well for my career.

I enjoy music particularly playing Baglama (which is a Turkish folkloric instrument), swimming, fishing, hiking and planting tree seeds, particularly oak.
