Andrew’s Answer

As a newcomer to the professional world, I encountered several hurdles, one of which was dealing with a supervisor who was not an effective leader. This person had a tendency to show favoritism, lacked communication skills, and displayed arrogance due to their position. Despite the challenges, this situation provided me with valuable lessons.

I learned the importance of taking the initiative in communication, especially when dealing with someone whose communication skills are not strong. This proactive approach enabled me to better understand my job responsibilities and the broader goals of the organization.

Additionally, this experience taught me the kind of leader I don't want to become. I was able to critically evaluate their mistakes, which gave me a clearer vision of how I would lead a team when the opportunity arises for me to take on a supervisory role.

My advice to anyone entering a new job is to keep an open mind, be receptive to learning, and maintain flexibility. This mindset will help you navigate through any challenges you may encounter and turn them into opportunities for growth.
Thank you comment icon Thanks for the help. Symone

Pamela’s Answer

Hello Symone
These challenges can be overcome through continuous research and development, ongoing training and testing, collaboration with experts, and implementing robust systems and protocols. I will be praying🙏🏾with you. Wishing you success.

In terms of medical assisting, the workforce requirements may vary depending on your location and specific employer. However, generally, to work as a medical assistant, you will need a high school diploma or equivalent, and then you can complete a post-secondary medical assisting program, which typically takes about one year. These programs often include both classroom instruction and supervised clinical experience. Additionally, some states require medical assistants to be certified, which involves passing an exam offered by a recognized certification agency. It's important to research the requirements in your area and consider any additional certifications or licenses that may be necessary for your desired job.

I hope this helps. God has a plan🙏🏾❤️.

Godfrey’s Answer

Challenges in medical field are there but one needs to be resilient and also the aspect of consultation is of great assistance.
One challenge is that sometimes clients who don't get healed as expected sometimes can be traumatizing to the medical staff,we can sometimes have nugging or unfriendly patients, however our key responsibilities is basically to be friendly and office the best for them,do no harm.
Medics always aspire to provide hope for patients but when it's realised we feel bad

James Constantine’s Answer

Hello Symone! This is James from Australia.

You asked about the challenges I face in my job and how I tackle them. As I'm currently studying medical assisting, I'm also interested in what the workforce requires.

I initially planned to pursue a career in astronomy and physics-math, inspired by a small telescope I received as a gift. However, a family health crisis shifted my focus. Many of my paternal Greek relatives were dying young, as early as 38. My uncle Mike, a research biochemist, had severe heart issues due to blocked coronary arteries and high blood cholesterol. His untimely death and the subsequent discovery of his condition being familial hypercholesterolemia type IV, made me rethink my career path.

Influenced by Dr. Paavo Airola's book "Are You Confused?", I decided to delve into the world of biochemistry and biological organic chemistry. I even worked for a naturopath in 1981. But when my father passed away at 50, I decided to pursue a postgraduate diploma in nutrition and dietetics.

For the past 35 years, I've been working tirelessly in the field of health and nutrition. I worked long hours at the outpatient clinic, seeing patients during the day and developing nutrition education software at night. However, I noticed that patients were struggling to follow dietary advice. This led me to create MenuWise, a software that generates personalized food menus and shopping lists. Although it's not perfect, it's a step in the right direction.

Our mission is to empower people to combat health issues like obesity, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes. We provide school lectures on healthy eating to children and conduct nutritional interventions with native Australians. We believe in the "Train The Trainer" approach, educating their health workers.

I believe the rise in obesity and metabolic conditions worldwide can be attributed largely to our sedentary lifestyle, often linked to our reliance on motor vehicles. Despite a warning from a Doctorate in Nursing about excessive walking, I firmly believe in the importance of moderate exercise.

James Constantine Frangos.
