Three 18-year-old twins aim to become rural doctors

Three high-school twin boys in the Thai province of Petchaburi have passed an exam and aimed to get a fund for Mahidol University’s Project for Rural Doctors.

Thanarat, Thanarak and Thanapat Kemglad told the Thai-language daily Khao Sod that all three of them have aimed to become rural doctors since they were young.

“Three of us have passed a written examination in April and were interviewed in early May,” Thanarat told the Thai-language daily Khao Sod.

On May 10, 2021, the project announced that all three of them had been chosen to further their education under the quota of the ‘Doctor Group for Communities”.

“The three of us aim to get a quota to become rural doctors,” Thanarat told Khao Sod. “We still need more doctors in Petchaburi to take care of sick and elderly people.”
