In May of 1988, I graduated from my local community college with an Associates in Applied Science degree. This month (May) marks 20 years of being in the medical field and I never regretted it.
Long story short; I worked in various Dr.'s offices doing both the clinical and clerical aspects (such as receptionist, medical records, assisting with minor surgical procedures, taking blood samples and vital signs from patients), several of which were inner-city locations in the Philly area.
So now............fast forward to the present. I now work for a dialysis company as a courier picking up patients diagnostic specimens, averaging about 135 miles in a day. It is the company van. After my run, I package everything for shipment. The boxes weigh as much as 25 pounds because we use frozen gel packs and that is a "workout", let me tell you.
I love the freedom of being out and about. And I made many friends, both patients and the dedicated nurses and techs. I am going into my 5th year and boy that flew by, I enjoy my job that much.
