Currently I am in the 7th grade, and my grade point average for the 1st nine weeks was 4.0. I enjoy working with children and watching shows like Grey’s Anatomy. I do not like jobs that would require you to sit in an office, or work with computers. My interests have led me to my number 1 career choice. When I grow up, I want to become a physician assistant.
I will become a physician assistant by getting all A’s and B’s throughout high school, and getting into a good college. According to the Ohio Means Jobs website, “Physician assistants need the ability to listen to and understand information and ideas presented through spoken words and sentences, and combine pieces of information to form general rules or conclusions.” I will be able to accomplish my goal of becoming a physician assistant by my current habits. I get all A’s and I will work hard to continue getting good grades throughout high school. I take school seriously and I hope to make it into a good college. I will work hard to get better at the skills I need to be a physician assistant, like critical thinking, active listening, and reading comprehension.
To be a physician assistant, I need to study things like anatomy, biology, and psychology. According to Become a PA, “Many PA programs also require prior healthcare experience with hands-on patient care.I can get health care experience by being a medical assistant, paramedic, or a Peace Corps volunteer…. You’ll typically need to complete at least two years of college coursework in basic and behavioral sciences before applying to a PA program, which is very similar to premedical studies.”
I would have to get additional health care experience before I could become a physician assistant. I will also have to study classes in high school that will help me with becoming a physician assistant.
A physician assistant would be a great job because it could lead me to other great jobs in the future. According to the Ohio Means Jobs website, “The yearly projected openings for this job is 110 openings per year. There is currently 2,090 employed physician assistants.” This job is in demand, and it is also will continue to grow in the future. The salary for a physician assistant in Ohio is around $101,190. I plan on moving up in careers in the future and this job could help with that.
I will work hard to get all A’s throughout high school and I will get into a good college, so I can become a physician assistant. A physician assistant would be a great job because it is a high paying job, and it is an in demand job. Career Day gave me an understanding of what I want to be when I grow up.
