Damien Sighaka is a nurse at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital. Originally from Cameroon, Damien graduated from medical school in Romania before moving to the United States to pursue medical residency. For the last ten years he has worked to overcome various hurdles that kept him from his goal. “I did apply to a few [residency] programs… but my number one choice was to stay right here,” said Damien, who recently matched with Ball Memorial’s internal medicine residency program. “I got this opportunity ten years after starting down this road. When you do something hard, you collect the reward afterward.”
