Why did you choose to go the pre-med path?

How did you know it was the correct choice?

Thank you comment icon Hello Julia, I may not be well-versed in this particular area, so I wouldn't want to provide you with incorrect information. Nevertheless, pursuing the medical field is a great choice! It would be beneficial to seek advice from friends or family members who have experience in this field for genuine insight. Wishing you all the best in your endeavors! Mrinalini Singh

Claudia’s Answer

Honestly, pre-med was never an option, I wanted to persue a career in the economic field. It was untill 12 grade when I had to choose electives that I chose economics and medical studies class. Needless to say , I feel in love with medical studies because they took us to a lab and showed us many pathology slides which I tought was facinating. In this class they taught me about diseases and treatments and little by little I changed my mind and became a pre med student. Economics class was great but it wasnt as interesting as the medical studies class, and thats how I decided my career.

Kess’s Answer

Hey there, Julia! You've got a fantastic question. Figuring out if a path is right for you can be quite a challenge. My journey was a little different from most...

I sort of stumbled into it. After high school, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so I joined the Army. When it came to picking a job, being a Medic was the only one that truly appealed to me. I just couldn't see myself doing anything else. However, after around 10 years, I started feeling worn out. I tried various other jobs, from modeling to manufacturing, but nothing felt as rewarding as the medical field. So, now I'm in my 4th year as a medical student.

For many people, the idea of working in medicine might make them uneasy. It's tough work, demanding, and comes with long hours. The work environment can be risky (no, really), frustrating, and sometimes involves blood or other bodily fluids. But if you're seriously thinking about it, it could be the perfect fit for you!

Kess recommends the following next steps:

Consider volunteering at a hospital to see what hospital work is like.

LaTausha’s Answer

It basically comes down to your personal interest. I liked science and human body, hands-on learning, problem solving. I also wanted a career that I didn't have bring home work with me . I don't like extensive reading and writing so history and English type of majors were out. I don't like office environments. It sounds shallow but those are some basic things in my youth that steered me to my career path just based on my personality and work habits. Keep those in mind as you think about what your day-to- day is like when you're in your career.
