Doctors are driven by different motivations. Some love the prestige, the notoriety and respect that comes with holding the title of being a doctor. Dr. Corrielus is driven by his desire to share his passion for inspiring others to beat the odds against difficult situations. His knowledge is not theoretical, it is experiential.
Dr. Corrielus grew up in Haiti in a very humble environment. He is the youngest of nine children. His community was agricultural and most were expected to remain in that field. His family valued education. With very little resources, they somehow found a way to send him to the best schools in Haiti because they believed in the power of a good education. With gratitude in his heart and a drive to move beyond that cultural norm of entering the agricultural industry, he valued every class, teacher and bit of knowledge. While most in his community felt destined for agricultural work, he strived to beat the odds and become a doctor as another path to help others.
He studied Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and completed his internal medicine residency at Temple University Hospital.
