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
Madelynn had always wanted be a doctor since she was little. She has always loved the idea of helping people and making them feel better. As Madelynn says ,"As I got older and learned more about the career I fell even more in love with the whole idea of it." In high school Madelynn was never been a bad kid. Madelynn says that her teacher did not really influence her decision to become a doctor.
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.
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.
Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her and i remember I was just always so mesmerised by the idea of the human body.
This class taught me a lot about the medical field. It also provided me with hands on experience. I learned how to take basic care of patients. Even though I did not want to become a nurse, I wanted to work my way up because I believe that to become a doctor, I should be able to delegate duties of the people who work under a physician. During my time there, I learned how to make hospital beds, give bed baths, change patient’s clothes, and other common duties of a nursing assistant.
However, more than any of these qualities, I believe that it is my experiences in life, which have shaped me into the person I am today that play a key factor for me to become a valuable asset to the medical school. My interest in medicine had begun with my enjoyment of science. Throughout both my years in high school and my first year of university, my experiences with science have taught me many important lessons, both in science and in life, which have helped me grow as a person. Along with my love for science, I also have a great interest in arts, which enables me to express myself, and empathize with
This specific part of the medical field holds more than importance to me, it holds my childhood dream, and somewhat of a sentimental value. The sentimental value comes from personal experience, my grandpa who I had witnessed being healthy for many years, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had to have surgery. He lost so much weight and struggled to move for over a year, seeing how much he suffered made me want to get into the medical field and help others that are dealing with the same experience. As I searched the branches of the medical field, I found Anesthesiologist to be the most interesting. After doing some research, the stories on how patients have woken up during surgery and felt pain but could not say anything broke my heart to pieces.
