While looking for an inspirational Indian Optometrist across the border for my podcast series, I was luckily introduced to Dr. Arijit Chakraborty who I like to call as a "Global Optometrist". While working in a different country can be challenging, Dr. Arijit Charkraborty has an experience of working in five different countries. Yes, you read it right; five countries.
It was truly an enriching experience to learn about his journey which started in India and spread across several borders like Malaysia, New Zealand, Canada and United states of America. If you may think that he is currently settled and working in one country; well let me tell you that's wrong. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Midwestern University in Chicago (USA) and also holds an adjunct faculty appointment at University of Waterloo in Ontario (Canada). He maintains active collaboration with tier-1 universities and research hospitals in the US, Canada, New Zealand and India.
With a lot to share in limited time, Dr. Arijit briefly talks about his experiences, struggles and limitations in different countries. He also talks about his success stories and research part of which was broadcasted in mainstream media like Times of India and New Zealand Herald just to mention few out of all.
Do listen till the end to learn about his "piece of advice" which he would like to share with all you listeners.
