Looking back, I made a detour in my career to become an internist-geriatrician. I have always liked working with elderly. For example, during high school I already had a summer job in an elderly home. Nonetheless my interest in working with the elderly patients came much later. After high school, I initially started studying in the field of Human Movement Sciences. I enjoyed classes in neurology and the musculoskeletal system. I found that I did not only want to know about these subjects but also treat patients, therefore I switched to studying medicine, after my master.
