Talk to the interviewer about the areas of healthcare that bring passion to you. Is there a particular issue that you would carry more public awareness to if you could?
"There are so many healthcare issues that I am passionate about, but if I could choose one, I wish that the general public were more aware of the signs and dangers of undiagnosed childhood diabetes."
"This is a very tough question as there are so many underfunded, and worthy, healthcare issues. I am going to go with one of my biggest areas of interest and research. If I could increase public awareness on any healthcare related issue, I would choose pancreatic cancer. Yes, cancer does receive a lot of awareness; however, pancreatic cancer does not. This year, over 53,000 people in the USA will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer nearly 80% will die from the disease - both men and women."
"If I could increase public awareness on any healthcare related issue, I would choose the early detection of kidney disease or people being aware of signs, symptoms, and dangers of undiagnosed diabetes. Those topics are important to me because my high school best friend died of kidney failure at age 30. She was too young, and that could have been prevented if she had the knowledge."
Great answer! This clearly displays your passion.
