I want to graduate from medical school and become a radiologist. Specifically, I would love to work with ultrasound, but things like MRI and x-rays interest me as well.

Context: I've heard that you're not required to major in biology or chemistry to apply to medical school. I do love the sciences, but I would love to take the opportunity to get myself a well-rounded education too. I'm thinking about some majors right now. I wish to study French or maybe math, alongside pre-med classes. I'm not really sure what medical schools are looking for extracurricular-wise, so I need some help planning that. Some job shadowing and volunteering at a hospital would be amazing experiences. I want to become a radiologist because I think it's a way for me to make a positive difference in the world. I've been studying in school my entire life, which is great, but there's no point unless I use my hard-earned skills to change my community for the better. Medicine is an incredible way to accomplish just that.
College: I'll likely be a French or math major.
Other Education: medical school, residency, fellowship
Activities: I'm unsure about this one.
Job Experience: I haven’t had any yet.
Soft Skills: I love talking to people and working as a team!
Hard Skills: I'm bilingual and currently learning a third language, which is French. I'm also good at science and math.
Other: N/A #college #career #medicine #radiology

I'm still deciding between radiology, ophthalmology, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering.

If I go into medicine, I want to major in biochemistry and volunteer at a hospital. After that, I want to go immediately to medical school (after taking the MCAT, etc.), before applying for residency/fellowship. If I go into engineering, I can major directly in engineering and go from there. I think I'll be all right with a Bachelor's degree in engineering, but I might also go to graduate school in either mechanical or aerospace engineering. Currently, I'm struggling with my college search. I have no idea which colleges I want to go to, and I'm not sure where to start. #engineering #career #medicine #mechanical-engineering
