Why I pursued a career in medicine and became a histopathologist

Why I pursued a career in medicine and became a histopathologist

Novac Dorina Ramona is a doctor, based in Romania. Novac is currently seeking a new position and took time out to explain the enthusiasm felt from a young age for a life and career in medicine.

I decided to become a doctor when I was seven year old. It wasn’t a life changing moment for me at that time. My grandmother did not die, my parents didn’t suggest it to me, it was the way I felt. And what I felt was that in this life I was supposed to help others, to do my very best to heal their suffering, to be at their side at least with a smile, a handshake or a piece of advice.

My wish came true…half way true …because in the specialty that I chose, histopathology (histopathology refers to the examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist).

As a histopathologist I am not in direct contact with my patients, but I still feel like I am helping, like I am making a difference by doing everything I can for them. And from my point of view there is a big difference between knowing a diagnostic and starting a right treatment and between not knowing what you are up against and the level of evolution of the disease. You have at least a small, but still a chance to fight with the cancer if you are getting all the information.

The challenges in my professional evolution were great ones, at least for me. I started from the bottom, with a great lack of material resources and I was fighting an old system. I believe in changing for the good, for the more and the fair. I still haven’t lost hope that in my country, Romania, there still is room for this change for the better. If we try we can open our minds and by mutual effort and support we can do it! Because I am a realistic person I know that change has to start with each one of us, from the inside.

Caring for others helped me be a better person, more understanding, more compassionate, to respect and love people and life itself. Being in contact and seeing everyday so much pain and suffering make me realise that we can only appreciate life more and we have to be very glad that we are well, happy, healthy, fulfilled and to offer, to give back to the universe a little of what we received.

I have had the chance to talk to some of my patients and I could see their fears and problems. I could read their desperation on their faces. That is when I realized that encouragement, a good word and showing some humanity on time of need are just as important as a diagnostic or a treatment. I think that I could never separate my status as a doctor from the fact that I am also a human being. That is why I often get irritated by the fact that other doctors like me treat their patients like numbers or just some interesting case files. I can’t relate to that.

I often get the feeling that I could have done more in my profession. That is why I have decided to get more involved; to make use of the opportunities presented to me, to try to become better and, if possible, the best in my field!

I have never won anything and I have never received anything for free. For everything in my life I have worked very hard. I like to gain everything thru hard work because this is the way I can fully appreciate every little thing in life and what it has to give me.

With time I have grown and I have become a more mature person just by having medicine in my life. In my opinion, this was a defining thing for my personality, it has changed me, it left an impression making me the person that I am now. Life without medicine is a life not worth living and unbearable for me. I just wouldn’t be me. The joy and the happiness I felt when making my first right diagnostic can’t be put in words. When I wake up in the morning and think about what discoveries I am about to make today, what new things I will learn, it just fills me up with joy and an intense feeling of emotion. I am sure that my fellow colleagues can appreciate this feeling.

For me, the most important reward is doing things the best way one can, in our case, the diagnostic that is made by examining every aspect so that the patient can benefit from a treatment personalized on his needs that will heal him or at least prolong his life.

The only thing that darkens my vision of the future and my career is the actual economical situation in the world and especially in my own country. The lack of necessary equipment and qualified staff in hospitals saddens me, because in the first place, this affects the patient and for me the patient comes first.

I think that life is unpredictable and extraordinary. Nothing happens without a reason.

I dream with eyes wide open at the opportunity to have a career in medicine, I dream of learning new ways to diagnose and to classify the stages of cancer, to be able to work with state of the art equipment, to be useful, to excel. I am a very optimistic and ambitious person and I think that nothing is impossible as long as your mind and soul work together and in times of despair; help can come from places that you wouldn’t expect. It can surprise you.

My message for you, the one who are reading this and for all the doctors in the world is that nothing can stop you, not matter what obstacles you have to face in the way. They can only slow you down. You can do it, you will succeed!
