Calvin Neal Exploring a Health Career: Physician Assistant Ever since my cousin Paul, whom I’ve always looked up to, went to college and became a PA, I’ve wanted to follow in his footsteps. The definition of a physician assistant is “someone qualified to assist a physician and carry out routine clinical procedures under the supervision of a physician.” However, physician assistants can be so much more than that. They work in numerous fields such as pediatrics, obstetrics, orthopaedics, and with several health care providers such as nurses, surgeons, and physicians. I want to be a physician assistant because I want to be the face that people see throughout the healing process. Physician assistants, or PAs, perform small tasks such as taking information about a patient’s medical

I hope to be working the the OR team very soon at University Hospitals. Also, I hope
Not too many athletes have the ability to recover from mistakes made earlier in the game, and focus solely on making up for it. It showed some real character, which this entire team seems to be full of.

One of the biggest parts of my life has to be the sport of basketball. I played every year I could since I can remember. I participated in youth commission, then modified, Jv, and all the way to my senior year. With this being my last year all I care about is the team 's success and making a push into sectionals. But the one thing I have not payed attention to is how much the sport has pushed to be a better leader and how to take criticism from coaches and teammates.
I was so excited for basketball season to come around, I just couldn 't wait! While I was waiting for our instructor for my Phys Ed class, I overheard a conversation between two girls. They were talking about how excited they were to start practicing volleyball, I suddenly got a lump in my throat from being so nervous. I knew nothing about volleyball, but one thing I did know was that the Phys Ed class I was in, wasn 't only for basketball, it was for all sports and because volleyball was the first played sport in our school season, that 's what we would
Growing up I have always been driven to become involved in the medical field, therefore I am interested in becoming a nurse practitioner. I study hard and devote my free time to learn more at school. I am determined to continue to succeed and make sacrifices to achieve my desired goals. My strong internal motivation comes from my parents who support me. As a high school student, I am preparing to choose a college to attend and a career to pursue.
In the beginning of my freshman year of school, the Guard program was not strong but because I wanted to join, I started to build the program. This building process taught me that if you’re willing to work hard for something then you can succeed. The summer after my sophomore year I attended the Drum Major Academy. Looking back I can't believe how many lessons I learned. My first day of
I’m unsure of what career I want to pursue so I want to be able to maintain high grades so that I can have more options available to me. In case I want to go to Medical School or a pharmacy school. Which are two routes that I am considering to pursue. I believe that education is important and that it will help me live a comfortable life in the future. My motivation for wanting to get a degree is watching how hard my parents work every day.
I have always loved learning about medicine, but unlike most others, I lack a passionate, touching spiel about how my true life’s purpose is to help those in need. I simply like medicine. I know it will be an lengthy, arduous journey, but I’m willing to do what is necessary. Despite the fact that my career probably won’t start until I am well into my late twenties, I have recognized that every step towards my goal is a part of the career-developing
Throughout college, I shadowed many physician assistants and physicians and found that physician assistants have the flexibility to rotate across specialties. Since I was young, I always wanted to be a medical doctor. I would listen to my dad speak about his career, and he was always so animated when he spoke about his patients and the relationships he developed over the years. I would want that connection with my patients. However, the medical field is changing drastically, and I do not feel that doctors are able to develop these relationships as liberally.
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor.

I know that my attention to detail, creativity, and critical thinking capacity developed over years working in the medical field make me an ideal candidate for the Master’s of Medical Science in Anesthesiologist Assistant program at Emory University. As my life progresses, I have created a desire for a profession that offers a varied assortment of opportunities. I find it gratifying to have a career that is not only rewarding for caring for surgical patients, but also the attraction of a career that is a life long learning process. The attractiveness of a career with different possibilities and education expansion is energizing and motivational.
Though I am early in my medical journey, and am willing to keep an open mind, it is only natural that I yearn to pursue a profession related to oncology. Unsurprisingly, MD Anderson being one of the best cancer hospitals in the world has drawn me towards the 1st Year Medical Student Program.
