I'm about to go into my senior year and I was sure of my major until I had a bit of a crisis. As much research as I try to do I can't figure things out unless I have an actual person giving me advice.
I know first and foremost I would like to be a doctor and I know there are premed programs that I can join but I still need a major. I've been debating between biology and psychology. I don't like the idea of nursing because that's really not my goal. Is there any major in particular that I should pursue? Something that will better prepare me for Med school?
We all go through that my first year in college I thought I knew my major. Which it was in photo changed it to psych major. Changed it again to liberal studies in special education, once again changed it to a sociology and finally I have my major set in a two subjects social science for a BA then ill have a MA in special education. your senior year do research on what you like don't like. Find out more on medical billing ? Once your in college you'll find what you like and don't like.
You don't have to have a set major your first year of college. Going into college a lot of people think they know what they want to do but when they take a class they change their mind, which is totally fine. Don't think that you need to decide your future right this second, you can always change your major if you end up not liking it. Just pick one you're really interested in, take a couple introductory courses for both sides maybe and decide on your own time.
Well of course biology and chemistry for sure, but talk to the school guidance counselor first I'm sure he or she can help you.
Also, it's a very good idea to volunteer at a hospital and get documentation of your work.
Completing EMT (emergency medical technician) training is also a very good idea. Medical schools will consider these things and it will help with your acceptance.
