"I have learned that working in the medical field requires a certain amount of tolerance. I remind patients of the impact healthy lifestyle choices will make on their conditions, but sometimes I am limited on my influence. I have found that giving patients a clear picture by explaining what is actually happening in their body helps them to understand and often take action."
"This is the challenge of any patient care professional because patients are ultimately accountable for their health once they leave our care. I urge patients to look long term at how they can make even small improvements but if they are unwilling to make those changes, it's my primary job to care for the patient regardless."
There are many challenges in the healthcare field, and one of them is treating patients who lack the desire to make healthy choices. You may encounter individuals who repeatedly visit your office with the same symptoms, asking for a pill rather than making the effort to live a healthy lifestyle. As you know, lifestyle choices greatly impact specific conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. Tell the interviewer how you would handle a patient when they continue to complain of the same symptoms without taking the initiative to help themselves.

"My employer would say that I came to work and gave 100% each day. My last employer would say that I was consistent, dependable and driven."
"I think my last employer would say that I was a valuable member of the team. I was promoted twice while working at the hospital and I am grateful for the growth opportunities they provided me. I worked well as a team member but I was also accountable for my individual work. I am looking forward to working with another extraordinary patient care team."
The interviewer is asking this question to see what type of employee you might be. Bonus points if you can answer this question and follow it up by stating that you had a letter of recommendation from your future employer highlighting your characteristics and work ethic.
