      It can be fun. We’ve had fun doing the I’m a medic chats as we get asked some random questions along side the serious questions of what careers in healthcare might look like

      Both. Mostly it is fun – otherwise a lot of people would leave and do something else. But any job that is worth doing can also sometimes be tiring – many healthcare roles involve long days, making and caring about people. The trick is to get the balance right!
