Josh, my medical technician, recently got accepted to medical school. Congrats, Josh!
At work, I purposely surround myself with staff who are in health care for the right reason - to help others. I tend to hire awesome people like Josh: someone just out of college, in transition, and hungry to make an impact. They have positive attitudes and learn quickly.
When medical assistants eventually move on, I am delighted to see them rise to the next stage of their careers. It makes me happy to know that I’ve contributed, at least a small part, to their medical training (gosh, maybe I should have stayed in academia!).
Getting into medical school is a major achievement worthy of joyous celebration. Cheers, Josh!
[Josh will be joining the first year class at New York Medical College beginning summer 2019]
