Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Professional Answers Preview

Question 3 of 30
What is your most prescribed allergy relief product?
Professional Answers Preview
"My most prescribed combination of allergy mediations is Flonase and Zyrtec. I choose flonase because it relieves sneezing, itchy or runny nose, sinus congestion, and postnasal drip. I choose Zyrtec because it is unlikely to cause any drowsiness."
"My most prescribed allergy relief product are antihistamines."
Allergy medications are available as pills, liquids, inhalers, nasal sprays, eyedrops, skin creams and injections. Some allergy medications are available over-the-counter, while others are available by prescription only. As an Allergist you may have your go-to combination for particular issues.

About Allergist

August 17th, 2017

As an Allergist you specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies, asthma and other diseases of the immune system. You take the medical history of your patients, perform physical examinations and treat with specific allergy and/or breathing tests. Your results guide a personalized treatment plan which typically includes measures to avoid or eliminate triggers, recommendations for medications and education to help you take an active role in treating your disease.

As an Allergist you've attended medical school, at least three years of residency in pediatrics or internal medicine, then at least two years of specialized training in allergy and immunology. Active listening, monitoring and critical thinking are just a few skills needed to be an Allergist. Tell the interviewer how assessing and monitoring your patients both in and out of the office have been successful in their treatment.

The interviewer will see that you meet all the qualifications by reading your resume- how will you stand apart from the rest? Tell the interviewer was was unique about your training, what special groups you were a part of, what complex patients you've had and how you played a role in their treatment. Because you may be part of a multidisciplinary team, tell the interviewer how you work closely with other providers to provide the best care to your patients.
