By the time I was a high school freshman had my future career down to two choices. I was going to either be a Forensic scientist or a doctor. Forensics became a choice because I enjoyed watching a lot of shows that included a forensic scientist or a coroner. The medical field became an option the summer before 9th grade when I had surgery on my spine. I liked the way the doctors treated me, and that they took pride in their work. I knew that my options were in the right field due to the fact that biology has always been my favorite subject. Yet by the start of 11th grade I still had not come to a conclusion on my career choice. That year I signed up to take a forensics course that sounded very fun. The information was always interesting but I could never pass the test with the grade I wanted. I decided that forensics was out, leaving me with only the Medical Field.
Pediatricians take an active role in the salubrious development of children. Parents trust the judgment of their children’s medicos and rely on them for advice. I believe that edifications learned at an adolescent age, especially those cognate to health culls, incline to stay with one through life. The opportunity to accommodate as a role model for children, embolden them to develop their aptitudes, and promote a salubrious lifestyle greatly appeals to me. My immediate goal is to be accepted into a pre-medical program and to major in biology and minor in psychology so that I can eventually enroll in a pediatrics residency program.
I know that I want to have a career in the medical field, so to prepare for that I have taken many high school science classes, including biology, chemistry 1 and 2, and physics. I’ve also taken many math classes, English 101 and 102 though Grand Rapids Community College and heath classes through Grand Valley State University. These classes have helped prepare me for a medical degree by exposing me to math, science, and college level classes; all of which are particularly important when it comes to trying to receive a medical degree.
In order for doctors to get the best experience and education needed, training must take place early on in education. An abundance of science courses in college is a good start to prepare for medical school. Even though medical schools might cover the material that is offered in undergraduate biology and chemistry courses, repeat exposure to the material can only be beneficial to the student. The more experience that a student has in science and related subjects ultimately helps the future doctor in the long run.
As a traditional Native American saying goes, “Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.” My heart was captured by pediatrics at an early age. My journey was started growing up in a small town of India with different but significant healthcare needs and limited availability of resources. During the school life, I was always attracted towards human biology. As a young student, I was very curious and used to ask many questions, and my teachers always explained every principle by scientific reasoning and rational thinking. Childhood, after all, is a time when every human begins to construct their concepts of the physical, social, mental and emotional portions of their life. In turn, these perceptions can profoundly
The decision to become a doctor is a very personal one. For many it takes years of personal realization. And for others, it 's always been their life 's calling to pursue medical school and ultimately don the iconic white lab coat. Being born to doctor parents, medical profession was not something very new to me and always seemed like one of the options that can be pursued. But what really committed me to medical profession was death of my best friend at a young age due to kidney problem. That sad afternoon became my inspiration to spare others the emotional agony that I had to go through as a young boy.
As a freshman, I was conflicted about what I wanted out of college. At the time, I naively believed that I would major in Neuroscience and Arabic while completing plenty of biomedical research on the side. Perhaps I would also sign up for a few clubs here and there and thus produce the perfect resume for medical school. In the following year, I realized that my heart was not into the breakneck agenda I planned for myself and I started to reevaluate just what exactly I wanted to pursue in my undergraduate experience. With the aid of many advising sessions I gained a clearer picture of my passions, which as I had come to realize, were what I truly wanted to work towards. Among my interests is Global Health -- in particular, I wish to learn more
Physicians in today’s world are so much more than what some people encompass a doctor to be. Physicians not only help treat ill people they also help keep people, as well as families, informed on certain factors that could impact their lives. Physicians do more than just save lives, they extend it, they help benefit it, they put time into helping researchers find out how to create vaccines for some illnesses (Russell, 2016). I want to become a physician because in my world I have seen many people affected by the results of rising healthcare. I want to be able to say that I have tried my best and help as many people as possible even if they cannot always afford it.
I have always loved science and math. Although I thoroughly enjoy biology, it is not my strongest subject. To conjure a greater understanding of biology I set some short term goals. I want to enroll in more science based classes in order to hone my skills . Because I wish to have a job that is a hybrid of engineering and medical principles, it is extremely salient that I enjoy a major in biomedical engineering and perhaps a minor in nano engineering. Another of my short term goals that is related to my early statement, is to take a five year route in my collegiate career. The reason is so that i may enter the employment field with a masters in biomedical engineering, thus putting me a step further than many other applicants. After settling down with my engineering occupation I will be able to work on my career and long term goals. I have a laundry list of career goals but I will only explore the ones with the most priority. My first two years of highschool I was
Most of my life has been focused on my career. I never really thought about my life outside of high school until my junior year. It was not until this year that I realized all the things that were involved with my career interests. Although I am very committed to my career choices. I have chosen to major in elementary education and minor in photography.
