Healthcare professions will always be in high demand due to continuous global population growth, which unfortunately provides a rich market for the treatment of healthcare issues. Since multiple healthcare problems will occur, various kinds of doctors will be needed to care for these individuals, including heart doctors. From a very young age during a family emergency, I understood that my life goal was to practice as a particular kind of physician: a healer for children with congenital heart defects. I want to help the children of this disease to live and enjoy a life that they may not have otherwise survived, because children are the hope of our future. As a child, I knew this profession as a “baby heart doctor,” but now I recognize the specialty as a Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgeon. Several steps to achieving this goal are clear: complete my dual bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Psychology, prepare for and complete the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), and enter a medical school that offers opportunities relevant to my chosen specializations. These interim steps are only the beginning of a journey that leads to becoming a specialist physician. To continue, I will have to become a resident with the best specialists in that field—two years each for both Pediatrics and Cardiology, and find time to pass both my residency license and board certification. By the end, I will have spent at least twelve years in higher education to reach my goal, and it will be worth it.
