–Thank you for applying to fill our open position as chief of cardiac surgery, Dr. Hahnemann.
–Well, Dr. Carson, I hope I can bring cardiac surgery here to the high level you’ve achieved in neurosurgery.
–So, Dr. Hahnemann, why do you think you’re qualified for this job?
–It’s Mr. Hahnemann, Dr. Carson. I’m not a surgeon, or even a doctor. I’m probably never going to be professionally correct because I’m not a surgeon. I don’t want to be a surgeon. Because surgeons do what is medically expedient — I want to do what’s right.
–Mr. Hahnemann, you’re a man after my own heart. I’m going to give you my strongest endorsement to the hiring committee.
