Improving patient care
"For me it was clear very early on that my heart was in healthcare. What is particular about this sector is that sooner or later everyone is concerned by it and so everyone has an opinion about it. At the same time, there are numerous possible ways to improve healthcare for patients, both from a medical perspective and in terms of organization, finance and management."
Room for ambition
"I really like working in a flat organization. The lines of communication are short, which means things can be taken care of quickly. It is precisely by grabbing on to every opportunity with both hands that you continue to progress, both as a consultant and as a person. There is plenty of room to accommodate my ambition here, and this keeps my work exciting and satisfying. It is great to work every day with intelligent, ambitious colleagues who motivate you to do your best."
