What is your reason/why did you want to pursue a career in the medical field?
I'm a high school junior who is interested in the healthcare field! Going to school to pursue a career in the healthcare field takes a lot of work and dedication and I just want to know how did you get through it and what was your reason for wanting to.
You have been given some excellent advice and guidance. My only additional thought for you to consider is looking very broadly at healthcare. My career spanned 25+years in healthcare in a business setting. I (like the other mentors) was compelled by the desire to help others. However, I am not (nor should be) a clinical person. So I found an area that I could excel and still fulfill my desire to help others. Best of luck to you!
My father was a physician, and my mother was a nurse. Practicing medicine seemed like a fulfilling occupation for them, and they seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I knew that there would always be great jobs in the medical field, and I wanted to have the freedom to have a job in which I could arrange my schedule to make time for my own kids.
Good luck to you!
