Editor’s Note:

I got this message in the comments section.  I don’t know exactly what the question is:  Looking to get into school- or just graduated and looking for a position?

What is clear to me is that this was a very compelling narrative about our profession-

So let’s help him out shall we?

Plz leave your responses in the comments section of this post :)

Hi,

I am a recently graduated Biomedical Scientist from St Georges University of London, with a keen interest in perfusion. I’ve spent the past 9 months visiting over 5 major cardiac centres in order to gain first hand experience of what it means to be a perfusionist.

It was during this time that I lost my 21 year old brother to a sudden and rare blood disorder. If you had asked me 6 months ago, why I want to be a perfusionist? I would have replied that I want to save lives.

During those 12 hours, between the time that my brother was admitted and his death; my single source of reassurance was how dedicated the team were to help my brother.

So, if you ask me today, why I want to be a perfusionist? I’ll tell you that I want to be that stranger that wakes up in the morning and goes to work to do everything in their power to help your loved one.

I am flexible and very dedicated; as such any help or advice would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
