Considering a career as a doctor, nurse or any other profession in the healthcare and medical sector? Be prepared to be bullied, for about as long as you are junior or reportable to someone in a hierarchical workforce. And likely even when you are senior as well. In some cases, you can lead an entire department, division, service, practice or even a hospital and still be bullied by someone else.
Bear this in mind when your time comes to start ascending through the ranks - it definitely will happen to you and you can (and just might) exact it on others. Your own experience as the bullied party may not even cross your mind either.
Watch for it.
And don't be (totally) surprised if you become that bully.
