In three to five sentences, answer the following questions.
1.Where do I picture myself five years from now? What am I doing? Where am I going?
2.How do the course choices (both elective and required) that I make today lead to the fulfilment of this dream?
1. Five years from now, I picture myself doing at least two jobs in my hometown. I will hope to be a dental hygienist or a family physician. Along with one of those jobs, I see myself working as a cashier. I expect a lot from myself in the future, and one expectation is to be following the path of success. I believe I'll be going in the right direction, fulfilling all my parents' wishes.
2. The course choices that I make today lead to the fulfillment of this dream by them providing all the knowledge that I need to know to become what I want. Courses which will help me become an effective and satisfied hygienist are biology, chemistry, and mathematics. Courses which will help me become a successful physician are the basics of science. They are Biology, chemistry, and physics.
Could you please tell me if these courses are the only ones required. Thanks. Also do I need to mention electives such as nutrition, etc.?

"Formal education and training requirements for physicians are among the most demanding of any occupation—4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency, depending on the specialty selected. "
