Was there a specific defining moment that made you decide you wanted to enter the medical field or just an overall desire since you can remember?

I for one wanted to become a doctor after my dad bought me a small scale human skeleton model set when I was 9 years old! After seeing all the tiny intricate parts that makeup the human body I was hooked on medicine! :p

Well, for me, it all started with the small talks around the dinner table. My mom made sure she asked us every once-in-a while what we wanted to be when we grew up. My brother always said a cop, my sister said a doctor...and well, I said a pediatrician cause I love kids and you can't live without money...lol. When my cousin and my sister (who are both two years older then I) both went away to med. school in the D.R. it was only natural for me to follow. Besides, I had no clue as to what else I wanted to do with my life. I think I made a good choice... DOnt you?

because I watch House!
(jk, just had to get that out tho)

Hmm for me I think it's a combo. of being really challenging, helping/working with others, and the amount of variety there is in terms of career choices once you graduate. So many specialties to choose from!

My interest in medicine sparked as I studied biology in highschool. Discovering the wonders of the human body tempted me and getting involved with medicine became a dream I'm determined to accomplish.
