Tell me about your experiences in this field?

4 Answers

I have completed my graduation in Life Sciences and Biochemistry and a post graduate diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology. I participate in social work in handling patients though I never was employed by any institution. I have successfully completed my internship in Somaiya Hospital, Mumbai. For 3 years I was employed in a Pharmacy store which imparted me good knowledge about medicines which is extremely helpful. The most critical thing in patient care is patience and winning the patients confidence that he/she is in the right hands. Less

I never felt like getting employed as I didn't want my passion for human care exploited to make money. Less

Patient care is about winning the patient's confidence however its sad to see medical practitioners involving in unethical practices to meet their institutions goals and get rewarded for it. I worked briefly as a Pharma Representative and after being a part of it for sometime I realized that medical ethics was not just a test I had passed. For a common cold and fever I was advised to sell medicines by a very simple logic, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics and that will cause weakness and hyperacidity so he will also prescribe multivitamins and a proton pump inhibitor. As the patient might experience a burning sensation due to hyperacidity he/she will also be given an oral liquid to neutralize the acid. I didn't vouch for that and left, I was trained to serve mankind not exploit it for a few bucks, so I joined a BPO and did free lancing for charity. I would like to take up this position or any suitable position however I will not break any ethics. Less

Q: What is one reason you would not want to work for the company?

2 Answers

As previously mentioned, I disclosed that I had reservations because of the poor reviews on a well-trusted medical review web site. Less

Yes, when I applied there I had to fill out a written application like in the old days and the CEO grilled me over my answers. She overshares at every opportunity and personal boundaries are meaningless to her. I knew all the details of her marriage, her weight loss struggles, and her lousy luck with employees within the first month of working there. Less
