Although she was born, raised, and attended medical school in Japan, Dr. Harumi Gomi dreamed of doing her medical residency in the United States. She studied and worked in Dartmouth, NH, New York City, Baltimore, Houston, and Springfield, IL, before returning to Japan to teach medical students a different way of examining patients.
What inspired you to become a physician?
My interest began when I was 4 or 5 years old and I watched a TV program showing surgeries. It was truly exciting to me, and I started to dream about becoming medical doctor. My major turning point came in high school, when I met Yuko Ishizaki, who was medical student at the time and just a bit older than me. She explained how much she was enjoying medical school and she completely convinced me to pursue a career in medicine. We’ve been very good friends in the 35 years since then. She’s a professor of pediatrics in Osaka and we still meet occasionally and talk about our personal and professional lives.
