Making the transition from philosophy to emergency medicine was an unexpected but not unwelcome change. The practical and engaging world of healthcare has been an incredible learning opportunity and one that’s really caught my imagination. I’m currently working as an EMT in the states and hoping to return to school for nursing once campuses re-open.
