Shyam Varadarajulu is Chief Gastroenterology Fellow at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, US.

He was born in 1970 in south India into a family with strong political lineage. His father was a Home Secretary and his grand father a regional President of the Indian National Congress and a reputed leader of the Indian Independence Movement. He was closely acquainted with Mother Teresa since childhood, and was greatly influenced by her missionary work.

He graduated from the Madras Medical College in Madras, India in 1993. He completed his internship and residency at the St. Mary's Hospital of the University of Rochester School of Medicine, New York. This was followed by a gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington.

He has published several papers, authored textbook chapters, and a faculty in UpToDate. Shyam's fundamental interest is pancreatico-biliary endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound. He plans to undergo advanced endoscopy training at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and return to India to establish a tertiary academic center with advanced ERCP and EUS facilities.

Dr Varadarajulu has served as Chair of the University of Connecticut Health Center Resident Forum and has received several honors and awards. He is married to Deepa, a major in business administration.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
The endoscopic part of the profession fascinated me.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Undoubtedly, James Freston. His clinical acumen, human qualities, professional attitude and interpersonal skills are the best I have seen. He is not only a great teacher but also a noble man.
Which person influenced you the most?
Mother Teresa. She said she came across a dying leper covered with worms in the slums of Calcutta. She cleansed him with soap and oil and covered him with a cloak. He died like an angel with a smile on his face. She did not cure him but certainly she did what no one else but she could do.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
That the world is big and I am just a drop of water in the ocean.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Fortunately, nothing major yet.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
That I should become the Peter Cotton of India some day.
What is your greatest regret?
That I am still short of scientific breakthroughs.
How do you relax?
Quiet walks.
What is your favorite sport?
Tennis.
What is your best place in the world?
The orphanages of Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity, where love is unconditional, service is before self, hope even in despair, and trust always in God.
What is your favorite film?
Gandhi.
What car do you drive?
Mitsubishi Galant.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
Palm V.
