I absolutely love what I do, I feel very lucky that I have found a job that I really enjoy. What I love about my job is that I get to help patients get better. Although what we do is the same what we see are really different. I work in Oral Pathology at university dental hospital in Cardiff and because we are so specialist I get to see some interesting cases. We deal with jaws, tongues, skin, teeth and loads more things.
I love my job! it is the kind of job where we can make discoveries (small and large) that no one else has ever done- literally the first person ever to find out something. I think that is amazing. I also hope that one day my work will lead to a new treatment for cancer, which if it happens will be brilliant to help patients.
I also love the we are always learning new things ourselves (new ideas, new techniques), it means the job is always interesting and exciting. we also get to shape the next generation of scientists that we teach (undergraduate and postgraduate students), that’s a big responsibility and an exciting one.
