From the time that I was able to talk, I have always expressed to my family and friends, how I wanted to work in the medical field. Your mind is the most creative when you are young and I had some great ideas on how I was going to run my own office. As I grew older those thoughts slowing begun to fade away. My first job in the medical field was a work study as a medical receptionist. Even though I only worked there for about 6 months, I thought I knew it all, I was soon to be faced with the truth that I didn’t know the half of it. After completing my work study it was a challenge for me to get a job in a doctor’s office with little experience, so I ended up settling for a position as a therapy aide. I worked as a therapy aide for about a year until a receptionist position opened up in the same office. I was friends with the other receptionist, so it was not hard for me to get a job. I was really excited about finally working as a medical receptionist, that I said I was never going to leave this place. My co-worker was a lot older than me and it started to become a pain to work with her. I did not end up staying at this place and instead of facing my troubles, I ran away from them into a bigger mess. I was able to get another job before actually leaving the previous one. Still being fairly new in the medical field, I was not sure what to look for or ask on interviews, so I accepted the first offer I received. The manager made me feel like I was really qualified for the job,

The first time I realized I wanted to specialize in medicine was when my father took me to the fire station when I was around the age of fourteen. He began to show me images of different cases and trauma scenes they had participated in. Since then, I have constantly asked my dad questions about different calls and scenarios about patients he has rescued. By having a father in the medical field and continuing to take science and medical courses throughout high school, I began to learn more about medicine throughout the years. Deciding to partake in these courses further advanced my understanding in medicine. These courses helped it become clear to me that the medical field is something I continuously
As a young child, I was always drawn towards the field of health care. I remember reading about the many options that are held within it and wondering what path it would lead me on. Neonatal nursing was something that always came into my mind, but it was often pushed to the side by people and teachers who thought I should become a pediatrician instead. This became a real struggle for me, but as I grew up and began researching and exploring the health care field I came to a decision for myself. I came to the realization that everyone was wrong. I didn’t want to be a doctor at all. This sudden burst of independence from what everyone else wanted was the first step to reaching my end goal. Along with this, an accelerated education, volunteer
When I was younger, I fell off my bed and cracked my head on the bed frame. I was sent to the emergency room and was given stitches. I had to keep going to the doctors for check-ups and me being a child, I was curious of the doctors and always asked them many questions about their occupation. At a young age I became very interested in the medical field. My mother being a surgical technologist and my ex-stepfather being a CRNA, I fell in love with the health care system and that’s when I knew I wanted to help others by becoming a nurse anesthetist.
I have always wanted to enter the medical field but I wasn’t for sure on what I wanted to go in for. I was stuck between choosing medical assisting and medical billing and coding. I choose medical billing and coding because there are so many job opportunities you can receive while working in this field. I am very excited about learning the different codes that are used in the medical field. After I graduate and pass the certification exam I see myself working in a hospital setting or
Growing up I never envisioned myself to become a part of the medical field. To this day I am still in disbelief this is the direction my life has taken. I remember the first time an at risk teen outreach counselor showed up at an afterschool summer program right before I entered high school and asked what I wanted to be growing up. It was the first time I was legitimately forced to face my future head on. My father left when my mother became ill and was put on disability so I never had any real guidance or previously discussed the issue with anyone prior to that day. I naively replied "CEO of Microsoft"! It was the only thing I could muster up jovially on the spot. His reply has always stuck with me and now has become a motivating force in
Being in the medical field is something my family has been in for a few generations now. My grandmother once worked in a nursing home, and my aunts were both nursing assistants. My mother has been in the medical field since she was sixteen, starting in a nursing home, and then becoming a nursing assistant until 2007. Shortly afterwards, she became a medical assistant that she currently still is today. It can only but inspire me to be working in the medical field next. I wanted to be a neurologist first, then a psychologist, but with the amount of schooling and how much debt I’d be in, I thought it through and figured out I want to be a nurse practitioner. They have similar duties to a registered nurse except they give advanced services to patients, and it can be cheaper going to medical school as well as having to go for a shorter amount of time than a regular doctor as well as great benefits and salary.
Already coming from a family with a background in the health professions field, I pretty much had a view of what it would be like in the medical field. Going back to my senior year, I had alot of medical experiences that I enjoyed. I enrolled in a special medical program, Aurora LIGHTS, in my highschool in which I shadowed many physicians, physician assistants, dental assistants, midwives and so on. It was challenging and overwhelming at the same time. I got to help people everyday.
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing”- Pelé. When I think about my future, quite frankly, I’m not sure where I’ll end up. I truly believe my future will depend on my personal happiness no matter what career I end up in. However, that’s not how life goes. In a career, it’s not all flowers and daisies; you sacrifice, you endure, you persevere, and sometimes, you suffer but in the end you are rewarded with a life only dreamed by some. I’m not looking at the medical field for money, I’m looking at it for how it fits to my characteristics. The medical field is a group of people willing to suffer, sacrifice, and endure for the well-being
Ever since I went to the hospital in fourth grade, I knew I wanted to have a career in the medical field. After highschool, I plan to go to college and then pursue my job in the healthcare world. My goal is to be successful doing the job that I love. To achieve my goal, I have good people skills and like working with others, and I have done a lot of group work, which will help me in the future. Getting into a group called Club Scrub, a learning experience about different medical careers located at the Monroe Hospital, will also help be choose which specific medical career I want.
I’ve always wanted to be apart of the medical field but I never knew doing what. I knew that I’m extremely patient, enjoy helping others, and I am precise with my work. I am a perfectionist; so working with such fragile children deserves special care and lots of patience. When my cousin went into labor 24 weeks early, I knew I wanted to help care for the child.
I admit that I haven't always been interested in entering the medical field. It seemed like a “blood and guts” job to me, and thats not exactly something that Ive always felt comfortable with. I must have changed my mind what seemed like a million times about my future. I went from wanting to be a marine biologist, to wanting to be an art teacher and then later not having even the slightest idea what I wanted to be at all. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school, that an unexpected accident led to my final decision to pursue a health related career.
It has always been a dream of mine to work in healthcare in some capacity. I was raised in a family of educators, but I felt a calling for the medical field at an early age. I have vivid memories of visiting family members in the hospital when I was younger. I was fascinated by the professionals who cared for my family. I wanted to have their jobs one day. However, I wasn’t sure where I would find my passion in healthcare when I was that young. I started exploring different healthcare professions as early as middle school, but I only touched the surface of what was available. When I started college I thought that nursing would be a good fit for me. However, I began to question my desire to become a nurse as I started to learn more about other
Everyone is asking, “What job do you want?’ It is a constant question lingering on my mind too. It is honestly crazy that in a couple of years I will be working and thriving to pursue my career dreams. When I was a child of course I wanted to be something foolish; in fact, I wanted an artist. Of course you’re thinking how silly of me, but now that I’ve grown older and wiser, my decision is more insightful. I have decided I want to be in the medical field. Mostly due to the fact I enjoy helping and caring for others; my heart has always been big. I’ve always wanted to make a difference in the world and impact people's everyday life. Therefore I’d like to be a physician assistant.
Growing up I knew that I wanted to study science and explore the human body with the goal of helping people. With exploration of career options later in middle school, I realized that medicine was the path for me. My parents did not achieve Bachelor degrees and while I knew logically that they would support me, I did not have the confidence to pursue such a big dream. In high school, I became more and more involved and worked outrageously
Since early childhood, I always believed I would choose a career in the medical field. When I was five years old, I was asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up”? I always responded by saying: “I want to become a dentist”. I began to pursue my lifelong goal of becoming a dentist or doctor after enrolling at the University of Georgia majoring in biology. I interviewed and shadowed many doctors, all of whom specialized in different areas. I learned about the education process of becoming a doctor, daily tasks, their lifestyle, and the hours they worked. However, the more time I spent shadowing and working with people in those fields; the less I believed that a career as a
