My first ever job interview was with Geisinger. It was a long silence during my drive back to NY from the job interview and thinking, where was I? I grew up and lived in a big metro city and I had difficulty in placing Geisinger, a large health care system but seemingly middle of nowhere! I continued in search for a better place but chose Geisinger in 2009. I just could not find a health care system as focused as Geisinger towards high quality patient care, innovation, research, and education. The culture of the workplace, its values, and colleagues I work with have had huge impact on my happiness and success. Overall, it has been an excellent experience working in Geisinger for past 12 years and I look forward to many more years.
