I'll like ask about the crowd:

Who in the org is related to the medicine field?

As far as I know, the only ones I know are Kiarrens, ActiveNoise and Scrnshot, but I'm curious to know if there are any other guys into the field :up:

Hmm well does having a sister as a Nurse, and another sister as a Unit Clerk count?
Or what about my boyfriends sister & sister-in-law both being Doctors? =3

or or I used to be a Health Care Aid, does that work also? XD

I am but a lowly executive administrative assistant, so most of what I do is directing phone calls and doing data entry for patients with O2, IV fluid hydration and CPAP/BiPAP equipment. We do also deal with patients with vent/trach, but I don't deal directly with patients often except over the phone.

Best phone call I've gotten:
Patient: "Hi, I need help with my equipment."
Me: "Oh, ok. What sort of equipment do you have with us?"
Patient: "The kind that plugs into the wall."
(Thanks, random patient. Thanks a lot. That could be anything from a toaster to a CPAP.)

I'm still in high school, but I'm getting my CNA cert next spring, gonna continue shadowing a bunch of nurses at my hospital, and if I dig it enough I'm going to try and get into a BSN program and then so on so forth until (hopefully) I become a CRNA. |:>

My sister works for a pharmaceutical research company iirc (she's changed jobs a few times over the past 4 years, I can never keep track). But I used to work for the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development which is basically in charge of making sure all our hospitals are up to code and if there are any disasters, we send inspectors and engineers to make sure the buildings and facilities were all safe.

I have a few aunts who are nurses at a local hospital. Both of my uncles and one of my cousins on the same side work for a Mental Health company. I used to be the IT Admin for the same company. My sister has been working for an eye doctor for a few years now and is just starting med school in order to go into dentistry.

I'm not in medicine, I'm a communication/language specialist, but I've been involved (sadly at the moment I'm not) in medical communication research for the past 3 years or so. Stuff like designing patient education programs and software for medical records and other useful sorts of things. So I've worked directly with doctors, nurses and counselors a fair bit.

As soon as I finish this year, I'll be applying for medical school. :up: I'm interested in going into surgery, but really I'll probably just figure what I want to do when I get there, lol.

Hmm interesting. It's curious that during my period as student, I took 1 year training with the nurses, learning about the basis. Realizing that many other members are interested is kinda nostalgic :awesome:

And JaddziaDax, hoping you'll be fine. It's kinda curious that due the Kapplan Program, there's a possibility that I'll end studying an additional degree in USA, since in this moment I have to become older in order to apply for the program.

AngelDragoon: Sure, but there's a quick warning for the medical school: You have to love to study a lot, because once you're here, you'll realize that it's not that easy to be a medical doctor, since you have to be open to a world of possibilities

Tritio, I'm not sure if you've mentioned this before or in a different thread but how long have you been in the medical field and what made you get into it?

In total, 6 years into it, including the years as student. And the reason behind me:

When I was a child I almost died asphixiated with a lego piece. I was saved by the action of a medical student by that time.

The guy at that time became my inspiration. Besides, when I was a teen I already became myself a member of the Red Cross, so Blood, Vomits, Bones and Quick operations became something usual. That's the reason why I never had problems the first time I had contact with patients.

The curious situation is that I'm 22 years old and according to the law, I should be 26 in order to consider myself a General Doctor. But it's just that I took 7 classes per period and from the 82 classes that compose the Medicine career, I took in total 21 classes per year, and in the last years, reduce the amount due to the limits of the career. So that's it
