Talk about your most positive take-aways from your post-secondary experience, and be sure to tie in how that experience will help you succeed in this position.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I have a nursing degree and additional on-the-job training within clinical research. I feel that my nursing education opened up many potential industry-related avenues for me. I graduated top of my class and completed a valuable internship with 'XYZ Health Services.' These experiences have helped prepare me for success in this role with Mount Sinai Hospital. Further, I look forward to sharing my experience with those entering the healthcare industry. I feel like it is my turn to give back some of what has been given to me."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I did my undergraduate in chemistry and medical school at St. George's University. I loved surgery, so my electives were in general surgery, trauma epidemiology, and orthopedics. I'm happy to be moving on to more responsibility as a resident. I have had some amazing mentors, and I found that I could perform well with different teaching styles."

      "I went to pharmacy school at St. John's University where I met many motivated and successful professors. My learning experiences during my rotations are what got me interested in hospital pharmacy. I saw how much pharmacists took pride in their work and it made me take pride in my work. Even as an intern I felt very respected and heard by the many faculty with whom I've worked."
