Touching the scar on her hairline absentmindedly with her fingertips, Aizala took a deep breath and then asked, “Before we go into any of the details about how this might all work, do you have any questions for and/or about me?”

~Lt. Tija, Doctor (med leave)

“So I understand you’re a qualified emergency medicine and trauma surgeon specialist, and looking to transition away from that due to a psychological issue that I’m not going to pry into. I understand the desire, if not the exact circumstances, but what field are you looking to work in once you’re cleared to return to duty?” Brad asked.

Her lips pursed and her brows pulled slightly together, Aizala was silent for a moment and then said with a sigh, “That is the question. To be quite hones, Sir, I don’t know. When I chose my field of expertise, I went with emergency medicine and trauma surgery because of what happened to my sister. She-” Aizala’s voice faltered and she had to take a deep breath before she could continue. “She fell to her death when I was young. I saw her fall,” she said in an almost detached voice. “After what happened at the end of my last posting, it was suggested that I consider switching fields. I think they are right that it might be beneficial for me. I just don’t know what to do instead.”

“Hm,” Brad said. “A problem, but a good one to have. Was there ever another field that interested you while studying?” He wasn’t qualified in neurology, but he’d taken a couple of courses on it, both when first getting his degree, and then later during one of his repeat visits to Starfleet Medical.

“I have always been interested in so called alternative medicine, but just like my actual specialities that probably hits too close to home to fully switch into that field,” Aizala pondered. “While I was at the Academy I generally liked the surgical fields. Again maybe to close to what I’ve been doing till now. I also found gynaecology and otorhinolaryngology fairly interesting,” she said thoughtfully. “But I feel rather uncertain, to be honest.”

~Lt. Tija, Doctor (med leave)

“Well the last one’s probably not that common on a starship, but we could definitely use a gynecologist on staff,” Brad said. “What do you mean when you say ‘alternative’ medicine? Traditional Bajoran remedies?”
