My Medical Future

Story by Kiaha Finney. Photo from

I want to be a doctor when I get older because I like to help people. To become a doctor you have to go through medical school. Doctors work full-time hours. Most doctors work overnight. Doctors go to medical school to be trained. Some doctors only practice certain medicine. They treat patients by diagnosing them.

The steps I have to take to get there include going to college and going to medical school. First, I have to get a bachelor's degree with pre-med courses and then I have to serve four years in medical school. To get into medical school, I have to take a medical college admissions test. Then I have to get certified. All medical school applicants need to complete undergraduate coursework in physics, chemistry biology and mathematics.
