"...we all have our strengths and weaknesses..."
Lauren Zuker, Sonography Student
TranscriptI entered the healthcare profession for a few reasons. First, healthcare is a popular profession in my family, and it was not uncommon for Thanksgiving dinner conversation to turn to what some other families might consider inappropriate dinner conversation. The idea of becoming a sonographer came to me about a year ago—I don’t remember how, I’d never been a patient of an ultrasound exam, or even seen an exam performed. It was like the idea was just placed in my head. The healthcare profession is not an easy field to be in, but being sick or in pain is not easy either. To have a successful career in healthcare, I think it’s imperative that we show our patients kindness and compassion—because when it comes down to it, we all have at least one thing in common—we are all human beings. In the medical profession, we all have our strengths and weaknesses, and what is important is that we work in a way that, together, there are no weaknesses.
