Mercedes Escobedo

Being a student in the Auburndale High School Medical Academy and HOSA, has been quite an extraordinary experience. I decided to pursue the Academy due to my interest in the health care field. I also look forward to the experience of treating and caring for people. In comparison to the traditional high school path, the Medical Academy has enhanced my ability to interact with people who have the same passion as I do, and has allowed me to familiarize myself with the health care environment. Through field trips, competitions, shadowing, and conferences, I have refined my knowledge of the health care industry. I have also had the opportunity to study and learn career-oriented hands-on skills that will offer a smoother transition into the college and career environment. The Medical Academy has also encouraged me to be consistently devoted to all courses to maintain a high GPA, so that I can achieve my career goals. The academy has offered me the opportunity to envision my future as a Health care professional. It has also allowed me to set personal goals to attend college so that I can obtain a bachelors degree in medicine. This will give me the opportunity to strive for a M.D. and ultimately achieve my goal of becoming a cardiologist. My involvement in the academy also influenced my decision on being part of the assisted living facility where I work. While in the Medical Academy, I was introduced to the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) club. My involvement with it and the Medical Academy, has given me more experience with skills and knowledge that has helped me to perform my job better.
