Jonathan Copeland is a 22 year old, who originally hails from Boston, MA, USA. As a young man he moved with his family to Orlando, Florida, then back to Boston, then on to Atlanta, Georgia, where he pursued an education in criminal justice. On moving back to Boston once again, Jonathan switched his educational focus to the medical field.
His first steps – to become nationally certified as a
- a Phlebotomy Technician
- an EKG Technician, and
- a Clinical Medical Assistant
Although he’s never worked in any of these fields, they were instrumental in helping him find a new career beginning.
Shortly after finishing his medical training, Jonathan was hired by Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates of Boston. There he mostly worked at the computer, but his manager was aware of his clinical background. That led to one of the lead Ophthalmic Technicians taking Jonathan under his wing and teaching him the skills needed to become an Ophthalmic Technician – the person who assists the Ophthalmologist during medical eye exams.
Jonathan quickly identified this to be his niche, and was soon hired by another Harvard Vanguard Clinic as a Ophthalmic Technician. There he was encouraged by both patients and doctors alike to further his education and pursue higher learning in that field.
In October 2011 Jonathan moved to Germany to do just that!
Jonathan left everything he had in the US to go back to school in Germany, where he currently lives with a relative and no longer works full-time.
Jonathan’s goal: To practice ophthalmic medicine.
To listen to Jonathan talk about his motivation to enter the medical field – and why he chose to further his education in Germany – just tune in!
