In order to test my dedication to medicine, I worked as a Certified Nurse Assistance (CNA). My experience as a CNA left me with a desire for more medical experience. Around this time, I decided to join the service. I enlisted into the U.S Air Force as an aerospace medical technician. Joining the U.S Air Force provided more than just medical skills. The U.S Air Force core values also supplement my medical training. The core values are Integrity First, Service before Self, and Excellence in All We Do. Out of all my medical experiences, my position as an Aerospace Medical Technician has allowed me to be stimulated with insight within the medical field. This has given me opportunities to serve my fellow airmen and country in their moments of need. This also allows me to closely observe a working physician. As a military medic I was held to a high standard, this help me develop a level of maturity for medicine that I would not have gain otherwise. I even had the chance to sharpen skills with procedures such as tracheotomy, intubation and traumatic emergencies scenario. The Air Force Medical experience helped strengthen my love for
-education whether it be medical school education of graduate school education, has been said to be not well structured as it really should be. Going to school for medicine is a huge commitment especially when you re learning to be save peoples lives and such, but if there is lack of an efficient system, then how will future doctors, physicians, pharmacists, etc. get the proper education and jobs in the future. The reason for the reforms factors in this issue as well as several others. There is worry among those who teach at these schools that the students are not receiving the proper education needed and are not exposed to the environment which they will be later exposed to when they begin a job. But without these first hand experiences and
Being from rural Appalachia, I know that the inequalities in medicine are high and prevent many from seeking regular medical attention. Early in my life, I saw my friends, neighbors, and loved ones hesitate to seek medical attention due to economic reasons and the inability to access medical care.
The medical field and the military intrigue me. My father and sister are in the military: military runs in my blood. I also want to become an anesthesiologist because, through my trips to the hospital - due to my mother’s illnesses and my common colds- I have fallen in love with medicine. I’m pursuing a medical career, with the biomedical degree I dream to receive in college. Neither of my parents went to college right after high school, but both made sure to receive college degrees. My parents play an essential part in helping me reach my goals.
My specific career path within medicine wasn’t always known until after extensive research and exposure which includes clinical/non- clinical volunteering, undergraduate student, research and working as an ER scribe. From these experiences I have been able to advance and develop my knowledge, skills and attributes. Through my ER scribe certification I have been able to personally observe the processes involved in determining a patient's care and their possible outcomes. The efforts made volunteering clinically were very important in developing additional communicative skills with a patient, thus developing a better diagnosis. The concept that structures a successful research are the fundamentals that apply to medicine, beginning with a theory,
Wow, in 10 years, I will be 27 years old! It's crazy to imagine, but time truly does fly by. I have so much in mind of where I would like to be, yet what lies ahead of me is still nebulous. What I do know for sure is that I am inquisitive about the medical field. I definitely want to be out there helping others and giving back to the community. To achieve this goal, by 27 years of age, I hope to have graduated college with a bachelors degree in either biology, chemistry, or neuroscience. Also, hopefully gotten into medical school and now serving a residency at a hospital. Career wise, that is where I would love to be, and I'm going to work super hard to ensure that I'm able to achieve that goal of mine.
I have not yet decided on a specific major, but I would like to go into the medical field. I discovered I wanted to go into this field when I shadowed many medical professions such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, and a speech pathologist. I shadowed these people for a total of sixteen hours, this was a very enlightening experience. Furthermore, this is when I truly knew which field I wanted to go into. I did not have a defining moment, I just knew that this career path was the right one for me. Furthering my education will assist me in reaching my goals of becoming a medical professional. Without proper schooling I can not obtain my goals
I am a wife and a mother of 2. Since I was a little girl, I´ve always served my elders taking care of them and giving them medicine whenever they needed to. Taking care of others has always been part of me. I believe this is why I picked a field in the medical area to study. Right after high school, I went to college to pursue medicine but for financial reasons, I had to drop out. Since I couldn´t archive my dream to become a doctor, I studied to be an Esthetician. Two years ago I had a second opportunity to come back to school and with the support of my family, I´m perusing Nursing. I picked this major because I am a volunteer in the cancer institute and it made me realize how I was able to help people. In the future I would like to work
All were inspired to pursue healthcare because of a profoundly personal experience: an early childhood disease, perhaps, or a relative or sibling forced to live with a congenital defect or condition. In short, someone they knew, likely, faced a life-altering disease or injury that, for whatever reason, inspired that individual to aspire to make a difference and dedicate themselves to a career in
The combination of scientific and anthropological perspectives at play in medicine makes it a broad and compelling course for me. My fascination of the human anatomy and physiology has inspired me to pursue a career in medicine, alongside the fact that this is a challenging and rewarding career where no two days are the same.

“Happiness is your dentist telling you it won’t hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.” (Johnny Carson) You might be afraid to go to the doctors, but you shouldn’t be. There are many different specialties in the medical field. Pediatricians,

My journey through academia was not easy. Furthermore, given an opportunity I can show that I can achieve my goals of becoming a medical student, working my way through medical school, and ultimately becoming an attending physician. I first enrolled in college in 1999 and failed miserably. Because of poor decision-making I earned a 0.98 GPA after 58 credit hours. After that I was academically suspended from the university, left with minimal options to improve my life, and I nearly fell victim to the statistics of my neighborhood where many do not make it out. After about seven years of working I decided to enlist in the United States Navy and joining the Navy profoundly changed my life in ways that were unimaginable.
Beginning from a young age, I have always considered medicine as a career because I have always enjoyed sciences, and I’ve always wanted to be able to make an impact in people’s lives. However, it was not until 10th grade, when I undertook work experience at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital that it was consolidated. The doctor that I followed had a patient who had previously seen her before about issues with the nerves in his leg. He came to her and told her that he had seen many other doctors before, and not one could figure out what was wrong with him, and eventually concluded that there was nothing they could do. You could see how frustrated and upset he was, because he knew that it wasn’t normal, and he wanted help. The doctor was so understanding, and she ran an EMR on him, and although she couldn’t figure out what was wrong, she told him that no matter what, she would try to figure out how to help him. He and his brother were so thankful, and you could see how delighted they were to find someone who was just willing to try to help, and seeing how happy they were brought me an immense feeling of joy that was indescribable. Just knowing that you can give someone hope, that was best feeling ever, because I know myself, how much hope can do for patients and their families. My great aunt was actually diagnosed with Cancer a few years ago, and in September last year, she was notified that her Cancer came back. It was so heart breaking to have something we thought we wouldn’t
