Fulling My Passion

  1. Hello everyone,

    This post might seem a little unusual.

    I'm a twenty-three year old business/engineer. I'm an avid entrepreneur and love helping the needy/sick. I spend a lot of time working with non-profit organization, coordinating events, etc, etc.

    Why I'm writing:

    I'm want to one day full-fill my passion, helping the sick. However, entering the medical filed as a RN or Doctor is out of the question, due to a very light stomach when it comes to blood. I would have loved to follow in my mother's footsteps as a Cardiologist, but maybe God had other intentions. (Hence the light stomach)

    So, I come to you for help. I need a brain storm session in the medical industry; I want to put my abilities (i.e. Savvy engineering/entrepreneurial skills) to work. Any suggestion, on creating a company either in designing medical devices or some type of program to help the sick?

    I would like to fully step down from what I'm doing and actually serve some purpose in this world. But I can't devote my life to non-profit organizations, if and when I get married and have children I'll need to support them. I'm open to any suggestion.

    Thanks, God bless,

    -Jason.

    Many non-profit organization have paid positions.

    Good luck!

    If you were to "Redesign" a product in the hospital what would it be and why?

    If you had to come up with a new product that could better your work performance what would it be?

    if i knew the answer to either of those questions, i'd probably be pitching my design ideas to someone who had the $$ to back them up so i could retire in style.

    You are not unique in your desire to help people but have talents outside of medicine. This board is filled with former Engineers. However, I left IT for Social Work then moved into Health Care Administration and never looked back.

    I agree with Tweety. Not only are there paid positions within not-for-profit because not all not-for-profit organizations are charitable, there is usually an IT section within the organization where individuals are paid very well!!! :spin: If you do not want to work for one of those but want to be a vendor, then do some market research within your community to see what you have to offer vs. demand. Just some thoughts.
