Misha Mariam Josepth, Overseas Radiographer

I had been working in India, in one of the best private medical colleges in Kerala, for about three years. I also had Radiology experience before starting my profession. I chose to be a radiographer because I liked patient care, and I enjoyed being technologically active in the medical field.

My major decision for choosing this role was my mother, who had carcinoma of the lung. I had an interest in helping other patients with the same pain. I feel satisfied seeing the impact I can make within my role. In Radiology, I enjoy communicating with patients and providing care. Seeing their progress when they come back for follow-up care is rewarding, and I like keeping up to date with new technologies.

I enjoy sharing knowledge with my peers. I enjoy being in the UK, especially working at the Royal Devon. It’s an awesome experience, and I feel supported and cared for at all times. My colleagues and seniors are so helpful, and I never feel left out. This is something that feels very important having relocated.

Radiology is a great option to choose!
