If I could make a living doing what I love most, I would work on a medical mission team traveling to third-world countries and providing medical services to those that do not have ready access to it. It has always been my goal to become a physician but it was never my goal to practice in the usual way. While I understand the financial limitations of working solely in a charitable capacity after incurring college and medical school debt, if money were not an issue, I would spend my life trying to improve the health of those who do not have ability to obtain medical care on their own.
I have learned just how lucky we are in the U.S to have access to quality medical care. That is not to say there are no issues in our healthcare system, there are. But compared to most of the world, our medical system’s issues are very minor. Much of the world can’t even dream about the kind of healthcare we have in the U.S. nor can they imagine the magnitude of the change it could have on their lives if given access to it. It would be my dream to work with a team of medical professionals to provide the best medical care available to those that need it most. In this way I hope to show those we work with that there are people in the world who care about their plight and are working to improve it.
