Why do you want to become a physician?
"By working as a emergency room scribe, I get the opportunity to see how each physician is able to provide compassionate care to a patient in a time of extreme sickness in such a fast paced environment. These doctors are so passionate about their job and effective at communicating complex information in a method that the patient can fully grasp. Each patient they see reinforces why I want to become a physician and provide the level and quality of care that they are giving."
