Arpan Doshi, who graduated from University of Sheffield earlier this week, is now set to become the youngest person to become a doctor in the United Kingdom, India Times reports.

In 2009, Doshi moved from Gandhinagar, Gujarat to Aix-en-Provence, France, where he completed his French Baccalaureate at the age of 16.

On Monday, he received his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree at the age of 21 years and 334 days to claim the title of youngest doctor in the UK from Rachael Faye Hill, who in 2010 graduated at the age of 21 years and 352 days.

Doshi said, as quoted by the BBC“From an early age I was fascinated by how the human body worked and it’s good to be able to help people.”

However, his parents who have moved back to India do not know about Doshi’s achievement, but he said he was “very grateful for their support”.

Doshi, who hopes to become a heart specialist, is due to start his two-year training as a junior doctor at York Teaching Hospital in August.

“My dream is to become a heart surgeon, but it is a very competitive field,” he said.
