Archived Ad: Seeking healthcare and medical career advice

I am excited to be graduating Brandeis University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology this coming May. Currently, I work as a research technician preparing equipment for the researchers in the lab including creating and testing antibiotic plates, sterilizing pipettes, Eppendorf tubes, and glass tubes, and creating various medias.

Last summer, I had the opportunity to work as a physician office assistant (POA) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital through the
Healthcare Administration Summer Support Program. Through this position, I handled heavy telephone volume, rescheduled patients tests and appointments, and updated electronic medical records (EMR).

I am interested in learning about two different paths: emergency medicine and its work environment as well as healthcare consulting. Post graduation I would like to work either as a clinical researcher in emergency medicine or some entry-level healthcare consulting. I am very excited to hear from Brandeis Alumni and your experiences!
