Tehniyat Shorish, MD

Resident Physician

  • Program Year: 1
  • Medical School:  King Edward Medical College 
  • Reason for choosing Family Medicine:  Its holistic approach and the idea of continuity of care are very appealing to me.  I want to practice medicine by breaking free from the limitations of age, sex, and type of disease.  Continuation and coordination of care is the key.  I want to be able to provide comprehensive medical care, health maintenance and preventive medicine services to the whole community.     
  • Reason for choosing Kaweah Delta:  When I interviewed at Kaweah Delta, the thing I liked best was it's institutional climate, which felt very reassuring and supportive.  I felt this is a program which cares about its residents' education as well as their futures, and sensed the environment to be conducive for learning and growth as a medical professional.  I saw great camaraderie among the residents, faculty, and staff.  Kaweah Delta is a myriad of cultural and ethnical diversity, and also manifests a great relationship with its surrounding community.  I believe this is a strong academic residency training program where I can flourish as a competent physician and a knowledgeable professional.
  • Hobbies/Interests:  I enjoy nature and love to explore new places.  I have tried kayaking and jet skiing a few times and really had fun doing that!  I also like to try new recipes - at times they work and sometimes they don't!  The central component to enjoying all of these activities is my family.
