Choosing a career in the medical field can very be overwhelming, there are a multitude of options. The job that is in demand the most is Registered Nurses. This degree, at the minimum, requires an associate’s degree. By the year 2020, all R.N.’s will need to have a BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing); Bachelor’s degree programs are 4-year programs. But don’t stop there, after 2-3 years of on the job experience, find what area you would like to specialize in, and go on and earn that Physician Assistant degree. Pediatrics is what I plan to specialize in. I have always been interested and fascinated with babies and toddlers. There will be many benefits to becoming a Physician Assistant that will outweigh the negatives of the additional academic workload.
For my Capstone Project, I chose the career as physician assistant. I worked hard throughout the year to make sure I make a good grade on the Capstone Project. I job shadowed at D.D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in the pain management unit. I spent most of the time observing my mentor while she performed check-ups on her patients. Also, I saw my mentor give injections to patients to help with pain.
Today’s lecture on the physician assistants (PA) was very informative. Mrs. Hughes spoke on what a physician assistant is, what they do as well as what the requirements are for those who chose the career path. PA’s are individuals whom practice medicine while also being under the supervision of medical doctors or physicians. They can work in all areas of medicine including emergency medicine, surgery and psychiatry which Mrs. Hughes works under. Within this occupation individuals have the ability to prescribe medicine, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, give immunizations as well as perform various other tasks. Many often confuse this type of practice with nurse practitioners which led Mrs. Hughes to distinguish the difference between the two professions. The PA program is schooled under the medical model while nurse practitioners are schooled under the nursing model.
Sitting at a desk, dragging fingers key to key on the keyboard, sipping the last sip of coffee from the mug that says “world’s greatest accountant” or any other lying quote that motivates throughout the undesirable day. In a life that the world expects to work hard for the first 18 years of life by forcing learning, such as walking, reading, to making and solving equations. Sitting at a desk for 13 to 14 years, just to live a life in a different desk for the rest of your working life. But, why live a boring life when a career that challenges on a daily basis, pumps adrenaline into the heart for more desire, while helping and saving people during the time of great need. As a physician’s assistant, life will never be boring.
What is a Physician Assistant? As a relatively new field of practice, this answer is often asked. Physician Assistants are also known as PAs. They practice medicine on a team all under the supervision of a doctor. The name is largely a misnomer as physician assistants are much more than mere “assistants”. They are educated to diagnose injuries and illnesses, provide treatment and examine patients. Typical responsibilities of a physician assistant include: reviewing patients’ medical histories, conducting physician exams, order and interpret diagnostic tests, give treatment, evaluate and counsel patients, and prescribe medicines (Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor).
Career interests The career that interest me right now is the medical assistant position. A medical assistant can specialize in different kind of medical assistants.

My short-term goal is to find a new job. I like my job right now but it’s starting to take a toll on me. I work at an assistant living for over 4 years now, and I’m starting to get attached the residents. Some of the residents I got the closes with have passed away or moved into a nursing home. Where I work, we aren’t allowed to have that personal connection, so when someone moves away, we aren’t allowed to go visit them. I would like to work at a hospital or a clinic. Somewhere that will help me received a medical assistant job. I completed my resume and placed it on Indeed.com so wish me luck.
I want to become a Medical Assistant because I enjoy helping others, and making them feel better.

I want to be a physician because I want people to grow old. At the age of 6, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with leukemia. By age 8, the disease claimed his life, robbing him of the opportunity to experience the privilege of growing old. Unfortunately, we live in a society of vanity. We see the process of aging and choose not to embrace it. As a physician, I would work with my patients so that they do not fear age, but rather welcome it. I want to effectively educate my patients so they may willingly choose to lead healthy lives and ultimately extend their days left in this world with their loved ones. I hope that as a caregiver, I am able to help my patients realize that a long, healthy life is far more fulfilling than a short, glamorous one.
