Harry Lesmana, MD, was born, raised and went to medical school in Indonesia. When he decided to come to the US, he knew that he wanted to train in a prestigious university program where most pediatric subspecialties were well represented. 

Dr. Lesmana is also interested in medical genetics, and Cincinnati Children's is well known as one of the centers of excellence in this field. Having said that, there was initially a concern that he would be totally lost in this big program but after attending his interview, he was convinced that Cincinnati Children's was the right place for him. He knew that besides the superb training, the environment was very friendly and warm. There was also a strong camaraderie among residents and between residents and faculty.

His experience as an intern has been great so far. Of course it is very challenging to move to new country and getting adapted with the health care system, but he knows for sure that everyone here is more than happy to walk him through this transition period.

MD: University of Indonesia, Jakarta, 2009.

Residency: Pediatrics Genetics, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.
