Biomedical Research or Degree as a Certified Medical Assistant

Hi! so I attend a health-oriented high school for prospective students who are interested in various health professions. Since the school is health-oriented we take courses like Anatomy & Physiology, Health Science theory, and so forth. When the students graduate most will have a license or a certificate like a Registered dental assistant, Certified pharmacy technician, phlebotomy technician, and so forth. I was torn between which one I should choose because I've heard research stands out quite a lot on college applications, so should I do medical assistant and eventually come out with a degree or do biomedical research like normal? which one do you think will make me stand out the most in my college applications?

P.S in case, you were wondering why I thinking about this in 10th grade, I have to come up with my career strand this year since next year we start branching out

Thank you in advance!

It's so similar to my situation, since I can't rest properly either. Despite this, one day my close friend found a solution for himself, and it was <a href="https://hometownherocbd.com/collections/delta-9-edibles">delta 9</a> that helped me improve my health. So I hope that you will also try to use it for yourself and it will be able to help you too! So try it, I wish you a good day!

Hi there @SodetouN.,

It's great that your high school is providing you with all of these great resources to help you supplement your college application and career path.

When deciding between these career paths, it's important to consider what you'll be doing in each rather than the title. Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you navigate this process:

- Which are you the most interested in? Your academic interest can be a great catalyst and motivator as you navigate high school. By picking something you like, you will likely perform better and have a stronger application

- Which path is in your desired field or career? By choosing something along the lines of your future, you can better craft an application that speaks to your admissions officers about how their prospective program is a good fit for you.

- And finally, what does each career path entail? There's a difference between actively conducting and publishing research and washing out beakers in a lab. There's also levels of involvement when volunteering in a hospital. The experiences that will stand out most to admissions officers are ones that lend you adequate leadership experience and pointed opportunities that can help you craft a strong application and compelling essays.

Hope this helps!

Maintaining a healthy mental balance with our strengths is crucial for each of us because it has a significant impact on the quality of our lives and the choices we make. Because a psychologist's judgment can sometimes seem to be absolutely correct, https://www.australiacounselling.com.au/gaslighting-signs-examples-handle/ is both an essential and limited component of our lives. That's why I wholeheartedly advise everyone to see a psychologist to find a good balance with both yourself and other people.
