Maya, Advanced Placement classes can boost your GPA and strengthen your college application. But the number of advanced courses you choose to take should depend on your academic interests and your schedule.
FIVE STEPS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR BEING A OB/GYN
STEP 1: PREP FOR COLLEGE – As a high schools student you can prepare for obstetrics and gynecology by taking science and math courses to prepare for the rigorous pre-med college curriculum. Undergraduate coursework includes courses organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, biology and physics. You should also should enroll in chemistry and biology at you high school to provide you with a sound science foundation. If advanced placement science courses are available your high school you can enroll in other AP courses together ahead in college. Although not all medical schools and colleges have a mathematics requirement, some schools require statistics or calculus, so high school students should take statistics, pre-calculus or calculus.
STEP 2: GET AHEAD – Advanced Placement classes show admissions officers that you're ready for college-level work. Admissions counselors consistently looking for good grades and academic rigor are the most important factors when schools evaluate applications. Even over standardized test scores!
STEP 3: STRENGTHEN YOUR TRANSCRIPT – Many high schools give extra weight to Advanced Placement (AP) class grades when calculating your GPA. Taking an AP class and getting a B is often a better choice than getting an A in a regular course.
STEP 4: CASH IN – Taking an Advanced Placement (AP) class is great prep for the acing the corresponding AP test. Held every May, AP tests are scored on a scale from 1–5. If your college offers AP credit, a score of a 4 or higher could allow you to earn college credits without paying college tuition. Some students are able to skip the entire first year of college this way, thus cutting the entire cost of their college education by one quarter.
STEP 5: INTERNSHIPS – Gaining exposure to the medical field – specifically to obstetrics and gynecology – enables you to determine whether becoming an OB/GYN is right for you. Some universities, offer summer medical classes. You can enroll in one and learn about anatomy and surgery, among other topics. Students will also perform dissections, take blood pressure and learn how to operate an ultrasound machine. Additionally, you can volunteer at your local hospital so that you'll be exposed to what OB/GYNs do and will learn about the patient care.
