My hope is that getting a job in the medical field before graduate school will give me more first hand experience with the science of the human body. I think I would enjoy working in a lab or with children if possible. As a CNA, I would prefer not to work in geriatrics, but it is likely that I may work with more elderly people. My goal is to find a job at Salina Regional Health or a similar health practice with my CNA training, or biology degree, in order to use my health knowledge and people
Witnessing the patients’ appreciation and desire to make lifestyle changes gave me the feeling that I was truly helping to improve their health and making an impact on my community, which are both important reasons why I want to become a physician. In the last couple months, I have also been volunteering at Kids Come First Community Health Center. The interactions between the physicians and children reminded me of the many times I visited my pediatrician as a child and what inspired me to become a physician in the first place. The UA COM – Phoenix will help me to realize my dreams of becoming a
The field of medicine and healthcare has always appealed to me from a young age. Specifically, I became fascinated with the causes of illnesses, an interest that fueled my need to research and satisfy my curiosity. Throughout my academic path, I have focused on getting closer to my goals and have worked diligently. Indeed, my passion for becoming a Physician Assistant (PA) was solidified after I gained experience shadowing a physician and became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I believe that becoming a PA is the right path for me as it would provide me with the opportunity to serve those in need, and also allow for patient interaction and connection.
Doctors are like heroes in disguise. Their work can make the difference between life and death for some people. Being a doctor is more than just saving people’s lives, it is a passion. If the doctor doesn’t give it their all, it could the difference between life and death. To become a doctor one must be very passionate about it.
Even though paramedics don’t really safe lives they do a lot for many people and I want the chance to help people out. My interest for wanting to be in the medical field also caught my attention because my mom always pushed the idea of me becoming a doctor or a nurse so that made me research and want to learn more about how to be in the medical field.
My career goal is to be a pediatric surgeon or a cardiothoracic surgeon. One of the career fields I want to choose is in pediatrics because I love children and have a soft spot in my heart for them. I would love to have a career where my everyday job was to help heal children and restore their health and happiness. Being a pediatric surgeon would allow me to do this. Being a cardiothoracic surgeon is a field I would also choose because I believe the heart is the most fascinating part of the body.
My years of service have taught me the compassion and kindness that form the foundation of the doctor-patient relationship. They also allowed me to gain insight into what comforts people when they are most vulnerable. For example, I was lucky enough to meet one of the children who benefitted from an operation funded by my organization, which touched me. The feeling of seeing the product of my efforts to help others was incredible and left me hungry for more. As a community advocate and close friend to those with whom I work with, I greatly value the role of communication in facilitating my work with
I was never allowed to quit or give up no matter how high the hurdle was in my academic career. I will not let my future patients give up or quit because their road to recovery is too long or too hard. Tough times show you what kind of person you are. I want to help all my future patients see how strong and fierce they are through their tough times. My teachers have been the helping hand for me in my academic career and in the tough times they are always there to lift me up and remind me of the accomplishments I have achieved over the years.
I am currently in the process of figuring out what is next in my life. I do know I want to provide a successful future while I am able to. Ten years from now I would like to have already graduated college and made up my mind whether I want to go into medicine or not. If I chose not to get into medicine I would like to have married my beloved boyfriend that we are currently 4 years in. I would like to have form a family also; at least two or three kids to raise.
I decided to become a doctor with my degree. In lieu of having experience in the field of Medical Records and Healthspring 360 forms containing ICD codes, I decided I would visit a clinic and a hospital that would be meaningful to my career to explain what I learned from my experience
