Dr. Manash Kanti’s life began in a remote under-privileged village in Bangladesh. When he was in 9 th grade, he left home to study science. Since then he has been hunting for the power that knowledge and understanding brings.
Manash believes that revolutionary changes in education systems worldwide would help to open up the world of education for everyone, irrespective of their socioeconomic background, ethnicity, religion or race. This dream has inspired him—he has faced all struggles independently from his early age. He attained his medical degree in Bangladesh and was involved in different pro-people organizations during his student life.
While working as a physician in a remote village, he noticed the pain of his own people in Bangladesh. He volunteered to help them not only medically but also by involving them in social activities, like study groups and cultural organizations. Eventually he moved to the USA and became qualified as a practicing physician in US health system. He completed an MD in Internal Medicine and Fellowship in Gerontology from the prestigious Maryland University.
While in America, he never stopped following his passion for helping others. Ever since, he has been volunteering for DCI (Distressed Children International –an organization that supports underprivileged children in different parts of the world, and especially in Bangladesh).
Since medical school, teaching has become part and parcel of Kanti’s life. After his initial 4 years of rural service, he dedicated himself as a teacher of medicine, anatomy and public health in various medical schools in Bangladesh.
For the last three years he has been involved as a faculty member in an Internal Medicine Residency Program where he trains new physicians and teaches 3rd and 4th year medical students.
He truly enjoys teaching and tries to learn something every day from his colleagues and students.
