Patricia’s Answer

I don’t remember when I didn’t want to be a doctor. Growing up my father was a surgeon and listening to him talk was so interesting and exciting to me. I worked in hospitals during high school and college and just felt it was where I was meant to be. As a transplant surgeon, I saw the impact of my work on people’s lives and their family’s lives as well. I worked together with a collaborative team of nurses, doctors, staff all focusing on patient care. Even with the time commitments and the hours, there is no better job than one in healthcare.

When I was young, doctors are the novel professional. Everybody admires and respects doctors. As I was from a poor (financially) family with no disgrace background (because of dad), I want to be a person whom nobody can look down on me. My mom (a single mom) also wants me to be a doctor. Next contributing factor is being a female. In our tradition, women are easier to be disrespectful. That's all are factors that make me a doctor. Now, I can proud of myself for being a doctor, being a strong woman, and being able to stand on my feet.

Mary Elizabeth’s Answer

Dear Jose,
I wanted my life’s work to have meaningful purpose. Being a physician allows me to care for people of all ages, backgrounds, races and demographics. We tend to meet a person in the middle of their struggles. To be able to care for another during that time can be one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. As an Ob/GYN, I’m able to work in many interesting aspects of medicine - surgery, ER, medical and behavioral health and, most uniquely, delivering babies in their most vulnerable and early moments of life. I’ve been able to help women not only in the US, but in several countries around the world through volunteer missions. If you aren’t afraid of hard work and have the drive, energy and ability to persevere through the education and training, you will succeed in any field of medicine. Never loose sight of your purpose….to hopefully make a positive difference in others’ lives. That is the most rewarding part of all!
