  • “Dear Dr. Juel Chowdhury, M.D.,
  • I would like to personally thank you for your contribution to my project Medmicrobes from November 12th, 2008 until April 14th 2010 while you were my student at Gulf Medical University. Your contribution to the website, the Microbiology SAQs, is a valuable study resource for current students taking the Professional M.B.B.S. Part-II final examination. The project involved compiling data collected from multiple textbooks and other sources, and then organizing and summarizing them in a comprehensive and concise way. The SAQs portion is a practical way for students to study complex processes in forum style discussion. It is vital that as technology develops we keep our resources up to date, to take advantage of the new avenues for dissemination and educational dialogue. Thank you for all of your work.”

” Dr Joel Chowdhury did his MBBS degree from Gulf Medical University and graduated in the year 2012.
As a medical student he has shown tremendous enthusiasm to learn and never tired of working hard. I
observed him to be a well motivated student and always had a keen thirst for knowledge. He was always
prompt on clarifying his doubts and was never shy of asking any question. When given a task, he has always ensured to complete it on time and also, did not compromise on the quality of work. He would always use the university library and find many scientific papers related to the subject and read them carefully. He was very enthusiastic about his work and I am quite impressed at his motivation, diligence and independence. Also,I have found him to be well organized and he thrives under adversity. Dr Joel has been actively pursuing research in the field of oncology with special emphasis on tumor biology. He has been recognized well by the scientific bodies in the field of cancer research. ”
