Community Service

There’s a portion of many postsecondary school applications that trips up a lot of people – community service. After a full (and often rigorous) high school class schedule, extracurricular activities to add to your leadership and teamwork experience, and other hobbies and interests, it may seem like there’s no room in a schedule for giving back to your community. Community service often seems difficult to work into schedules or even to find; many charitable organizations don’t have the resources to advertise their need.

The World of AP!

When I entered high school, I had no idea what AP classes were. Everyone was talking about Advanced Placement and what exactly went on in these classes. (Okay, so nobody was actually talking about them, but in my mind’s version of freshman year they certainly were.) For anyone who hasn’t come across the terminology, AP courses are accelerated programs that culminate in a test administered by a company called The College Board that also administers the SAT test.

Why Medicine?

They say that there are only two things that are unavoidable: death and taxes. For the Future Health Professional, we probably need to add one more thing to the list – a question. This question is asked, I assume, in every interview from a local HOSA chapter officer election to the application process to become the U.S. Surgeon General. It is unavoidable, as it should be, and it’s important to be able to answer not only to perform well in an interview, but also as an exercise – that is, you need to be able to answer this question for yourself more than for anyone else.

Hello!

Well, for the life of me I wouldn’t have ever thought that I would be a writer in any sort of capacity, but when HOSA calls I rarely have the power to say no. This blog is intended to be a resource for students pursuing a health profession, but my personal hope is that almost any student who stumbles across it will be able to gain something from my experiences as a high school student in Oklahoma, college undergrad in NYC, and (hopefully!) medical student.
