Pediatrics is an exciting and challenging field which I consider the only career choice for me. My interest in the discipline was reinforced during core pediatric clerkship rotation, when I was particularly attracted by the special bond between the pediatrician, the patient, and the parents, while working for the best outcome. I graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Aleppo University in Syria with very good overall average. Then, I was accepted to the Pediatric Residency Program at Damascus University Children 's Hospital which was the only pediatric tertiary center in the country. Ultimately, in 2001 I became the youngest licensed pediatrician in Syria. Afterwards, I worked in primary, secondary, and tertiary centers, in Syria and Saudi Arabia until 2013. In 2014, I joined McMaster NICU as a clinical fellow, where I upgraded my technical neonatal skills, and became more familiar with the Canadian health system. I believe that a pediatrician should be an advocate for all children, and an educator who provides anticipatory guidance to help parents enjoy the process of raising thei...

A career in medicine has been a childhood dream for me. I was born and raised in a small and underdeveloped city in Sri Lanka, where hospitals and doctors were sparse. At the age of ten, I lost my father due to a lack of immediate medical care. Shortly thereafter, a civil war erupted and I witnessed countless deaths throughout my childhood. At a young age, I understood that many deaths could have been avoided, if the sick and injured had access to medical professionals. These experiences have fueled my passionate desire to live my life as a physician.
A career in nursing is extremely important in today's society. Without nurses to assist doctors in the care of patients, the quality of patient care may not be the same. Nurses do not just serve a great role in our community, but they also are just as needed as a police officer patrolling the streets or a teacher in the classroom. Although it may seem very easy to become a nurse, one's desire must be very strong in order to to actually pursue a career in nursing. Pediatric nursing is not just a profession that one would desire, but is a profession that is widely needed.

My early childhood experiences and academic background including a Public Health degree in progress have all contributed to shape and maintain my quest for a career in Internal Medicine. I am confident that I am ready to embark on this journey.
At a very young age I realized I had a love for children. This love was a result of me being around my young cousins. It was so intriguing to watch their behavior on a daily basis. They always yearned for attention, and used many smart tactics to receive it. Throughout the years, I never found it to be a problem to respond to their needs. In fact, it was a joy. However, when they were sick, I knew I wanted to help them, but did not always have the answers. I was able to comfort them, but my yearning to help ran deeper than comfort. Therefore, I wanted my career path to enable me to help sick and well children. Pursuing a career as a pediatrician would fulfill my desires of being able to work and advocate for children, and gaining my Master’s through this program would be a positive step towards that goal.
While researching what medical field I was interested in, I learned that a nurse practitioner does everything a doctor does such as order blood work, diagnose illnesses and prescribe medicine except nurse practitioners have less than half of the paper work a doctor does. This was something that really intrigued me because I had dreamed of becoming a pediatrician to provide care for children but the thought of having mountains of paperwork discouraged me as I would rather help children than sit and file papers all day. This requires a master's degree in nursing but is recommended that one gets their doctorate. Its is also required to complete a residency and fellowship same as a doctor, because pediatric nurse practitioners have the same responsibilities as a doctor does.
If you are looking for a job in the medical field, but also would like to work with children, pediatrics could be a great option. The reason I wanted to research this career is because I find medicine very interesting, but I would also like to work with kids. I realized I would like to work with kids when I was about ten. Ever since I started babysitting, I have really enjoyed spending time with children. Lately I have really enjoyed learning about medicine and all the careers in the medical field. In this paper I will be touching on a few areas, such as what pediatricians do, how much they get paid and the demand for this job, and the classes required.

My personal goal is to become a director of health program centered around pediatrics. I believe that a master's degree from Colorado State University will prepare me to operate and lead effectively in the rapidly and constantly changing healthcare environment. Colorado State University has produced many scholars who have succeeded in complex and competitive environments such as forensics. I believe that the comprehensive program will enable me to become an effective leader in change and in the competitive environment where quality is demanded and requires attention to detail, skills, talent, and intelligence.
When I woke up on Tuesday, September 5th, I was ecstatic to finally start working with the students at Prescott Elementary. I have been working with kids for the past four years and I couldn’t wait to meet new children. Even though I just considered teaching a few months ago, I have always loved working with kids. Ever since I was a cheerleading coach for young girls I knew I wanted to interact with kids in some way as a career. Before teaching, I though about being a pediatrician. After I tossed that idea around, I thought about being a physical therapist with a specialization in pediatrics. Then finally, I thought of being a pediatric nurse, I really wanted to work with infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the hospital. But then I realized that all those science courses that the medical field entails are not for me. This is when I was enlightened and became interested in teaching.

From a young age I knew I wanted to become a Pediatrician however now that I am older and more aware of the different career options I have narrowed down to becoming a Medical Laboratory Technician. By becoming more conscious of my career goals, I am currently enrolled in a high school that specifically focuses on the division of the healthcare field that I one day hope to be a part of. Now that I am a part of the Medical Laboratory cluster at the High School of Health Professions I have taken courses such as Introduction to Health Science, Anatomy & Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Clinical and Diagnostic courses. With this education, I am more than prepared to initiate my lifelong dream.
As a child, if you had ever felt sick, your mom probably took you to see a pediatrician. Pediatricians are doctors who work to diagnose, treat, and manage a child's illness. Pediatricians work with both the child, and the parents of the child, informing them of the illness they are dealing with. They spend their days talking to the patients, their parents, and many others from different medical fields. This career interests me because of my desire to help and work with children. Being a pediatrician is something I see myself investing my time and efforts into. Most importantly, when I got home from work, I would love to say that I made someone’s day by helping them and that I saved a life.
Ever since I was a little kid joining the health profession has been one of my dreams. Helping other people in any way I can is something that brings me an unspeakable amount of joy. Pursuing a career in the medical field will give me the opportunity to do something I enjoy, which is help others. I am currently not certain what specific career I want to pursue, but I have thought about focusing my studies on either neurology or pediatrics. I really enjoy working with children and helping them out. This year I was given the chance to go and read to first graders once a week for about nine weeks. The way the children looked up to me really meant something special and cemented my interest in working with kids. Becoming any type of pediatric doctor
