What interests me about the medical field and why I want to be a part of it?
I grew up with type one diabetes, and later got diagnoses with Lupus and Hashimoto’s. So needless to say, the healthcare field is nothing new to me. I grew up born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and there is very little medical options here for someone with complex diseases. The medical field greatly interests me because I want to be able to help people the way I was helped growing up. I would love to be running an organization, or hospital, and help staff members achieve the best productivity that they can to help patients.
What did I learn from my classmates and what strategies while I used to prepare for future interviews?
After reading responses and reading other classmates posts the last several weeks, I think the number one thing I picked up from them and learned is to look into the possibilities of graduate programs to further my education and get the most out of the career I am wanting to enter. Strategies I will use to prepare for future interviews will be simply to stay positive and be honest. Not huge strategies but I want good communication to be key when interviewing- Be honest about what my strengths and weaknesses are and where I want to be in my future career and see if it is a good fit!
