    When have you shown a willingness to learn a new method or new approach to solving a problem?

      How to Answer

      Being flexible, and able to handle change is a skill that all employers desire to see. Discuss with the interviewer your ability to approach a problem using new methods. Give a recent example but make sure to spend more time highlighting the resolution rather than the problem.

      Darby's Answer

      "When our facility came under new management last year many new methods and policies came into place. I was able to learn some exciting new approaches to our challenges in patient care and customer management. I quite enjoyed the process."

      Ryan's Answer

      "It's funny; they say people in medicine are 'lifelong learners'. But on top of that, we're in this digital revolution, and everyone has to learn new software all the time. I'm finally getting old enough to realize that its difficult to be constantly adapting. I think my 75-year-old aunt telling me how to use my iPhone helped me appreciate that it's all about humility. Not WHO is teaching you, but if you are willing to learn. In the medical context, I just took an updated CPR course, and it went from the 2:15 compressions to continuous compressions and I had to adapt to avoid my past way of thinking."

      "I'm always eager to learn new methods to solve a problem. Last year we had an update in our software that prompts pharmacists to identify patients who are candidates for receiving ancillary immunizations such as pneumonia and shingles. I quickly learned to utilize this update to identify, educate, and administer to more patients."
