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
First of all I would like to be in the healthcare field because I would like to have the ability to help parents keep their children safe.I love children and I hate seeing them when they are sick. I would like to be able to help them live a healthier environment by helping them avoid illnesses and by helping them get over illnesses quickly. I would like to one day find a cure for an illness and save multiple children or
I decided to take this class because I am interested in learning the basics for the medical field. I am interested in being a pediatrician because I enjoy working with children. I look forward to helping families by curing a sickly child or completing a usual check up. No one in my family has entered the field of medicine. I chose the medical field because I feel as if I can provide help for people who need it. Although these are my interest, I am still undecided for what I what for my future and I'm hoping this class can help me make the best
I am passionate of becoming a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I got inspired to work in this field when I interned at hospitals such as the Veterans and at Community Regional Center in the children's clinic. I have always worked with children and like being part of their lives. Ever since I volunteered at Storey Elementary After school Program with kids on their homework, it assured me that working with children is what makes me happy. I want to impacts others lives positively. I am serious about my career path and I take every advantage to learn more about it. This was one of the reasons why I had taken part of the UCSF Doctors Academy program, because I wanted to learn more about the health profession and be exposed to it. Being part of the
I have had a passion for becoming a healthcare provider for children for quite a while (for a long time). Children are one of the most important individuals of society because they are the future and will one day be in charge of the world. Their health at a young age is indicative to how their health will be as adults. Childhood has a great effect on how a person turns out to be so I hope to help children I hope to use prevention and education to preserve and restore the health of my patients. My career goals are to prevent children from having to spend time in hospitals or in pain and to help them live out their life and dreams to the fullest extent. Children play a very large role in their families, and when a child becomes sick, the whole family becomes distressed. Pediatricians not only heal children, but they help and prevent a family from suffering. I love medicine and children, and I hope to combine these two passions by becoming a pediatrician.
I want to become a nurse because as a baby I had many difficulties in coming to this world. From being eight months premature and breech, my mother had a hard time giving birth to me. She had to fly from the island of Kauai to Oahu to give birth to me and because I was eight months premature I almost didn't survive. I would not be here today if it weren't for the nurses at Kapiolani Medical Center who took care of me and nursed me into a healthy little baby. These nurses helped me fight for my life and when I was discharged, they gave me a little green doll that I still hold onto until this very day. For this reason, I have the desire to work hard and become the neonatal nurse that I always wanted to be. Being a neonatal nurse will give me the opportunity to
Many people think that doctors are stuck up and only care about themselves but I do not think that is true. Everyday, doctors come into work to save someone else's life and that is not selfish by far. If someone is in need of help and there are no doctors around except for myself, I would be able to help them because I have experience. I would also appreciate life more because I would know how it feels like to be in a life or death situation and how devastating it could be. One day someone could be doing just fine, then the next day they could be laying on their deathbed with only a few days to live. Being a neonatal physician, I would learn many things about medicine and how to treat others. Overall accomplishing my goal, I would become a better
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 have chosen pre-medicine because I have always wanted to work in a hospital helping people. I was first exposed to the possibility of working in a hospital because of my mother, who is a nurse. Whenever she would take me to work with her, I could picture myself working there, helping others.
As a child, I was always curious about how the process of delivering a baby worked. Whenever I would go to see relatives in the hospital I would wander off looking for the "baby department", and never be allowed in to see anyone giving birth. Then, my pregnant cousin moved in with us. She was pregnant and in need of help with preparing for the baby to come. I got to help her during her 9 months of carrying the baby and being there to see her water break was the most fascinating yet traumatizing thing ever. I got to see what the baby looks like when it is first born and how the doctors take care of the baby after it comes out. It really opened my eyes to that area of Health Careers and helped influence me to want to become an OB/GYN (obstetrician-gynecologists). Choosing this career field will not only let me do a job I 've been dreaming of since I was young , but it will also allow me to give the support to people in need of help. I will be able to positively impact people 's lives every day and put smiles on people 's faces whenever I can. I also will be able to attend a "Birthday party" every day! I can help couples/individuals in the process of creating the most precious thing , life. I think my personality fits well with this career. I am very caring and can connect with people easily . I do also have a good understanding of what I have to do to become an OB/GYN.This career field will allow me to make great money , help others and connect with people personally
Pregnant women require prenatal visits at constant intervals all through pregnancy; obstetricians invest most of their time caring for those patients. They oversee the health of both the mother and the fetus while at the same time keeping careful data and recording new necessary data. Obstetricians have to treat and guide women throughout their pregnancy, giving them options for care and choices so they can decide on how they would like to have their baby delivered. They also have to administer or order tests, advise patients of any health practices that have to or can be done, prescribe medications, supervise fetal development and movement, and diagnose prenatal problems or diseases. They keep track of the health of both the mother and the fetus; they have to keep careful data and record necessary data. They may exhibit viable problems that could be occurring in the fetal health and review options, genetic counseling. Additionally, obstetricians monitor women for any feasible conditions that occur during pregnancy. Women who have had health problems before pregnancy typically undergo special care and checkups to make sure that they remain healthy throughout. As the pregnancy advances, obstetricians analyze the position of the fetus and watch for cervical changes to help patients prepare for delivery. Obstetricians usually do not treat any diseases. They only deal with complications during childbirth such as fetal distress, ectopic pregnancy,
What interest me in this major is that I see working with babies as more of a challenge than working with adults or kids. Babies can’t verbalize what’s wrong, you have to diagnose them, and this is the challenging part. With babies, you have the most potential to impact their lives, because they have their whole life. Also, I have always loved working with kids, what made me go into this career was my little cousin he was premature baby and I would go and take care of him at times and I would always see the nurses doing so many diagnoses to them and that was interesting to me. It’s a challenging career but that’s what I love to experience I love challenging my self.
I plan to study pre-medicine because I want to be an anesthesiologist. This major will give me more knowledge about the medical field. I know that this course will also give me an opportunity to experience how it feels to work in an hospital with its hands on work in use. My qualities that set me apart from other are that I am very hard-working, responsible, and eager to learn.
Originally when I thought I liked medicine the only term I knew was “doctor”, so for a while, that's what I wanted to become. However through exploration, I found that there were many different types of medicine, and by examining what I enjoy I'm now interested in working in pediatrics or geriatrics. If I’m accepted into this program, I hope to grow in my basic knowledge as well as explore many different potential pathways to help further decide what to pursue. Another career I'm interested in is nursing or becoming a nurse practitioner. Many of my relatives have found joy in nursing and through them, I’ve seen the many sides of medicine that
