My name is Amit Ghosh. I'm the director of international practice at the Mayo Clinic. I specialize in managing complex care, undiagnosed illnesses, patients who require complex care coordination. My true love is internal medicine because it's solving patient's problems, listening to stories. When you listen, not only are you using your ears, you're using your eyes, and more important your heart and your brains. I really love my job because I am completely open to chaos. Patients are suffering but they don't know why they are suffering. From chaos to order, that is what I love. So that's the beauty of my work.
