  • I will become a sports medicine doctor after I graduate school and get my M.D.
  • How I'll get there:
  • First, I will research more about doctors in the next 2 years of middle school.
  • Second, I will do well in all my classes during middle school and high school.
  • Third, I will take the right classes in high school such as biology and medicine.
  • Fourth, I will go to college for at least 4 years and do an internship at a doctor’s office/hospital for a year.
  • Fifth, I will finish all of my required school and get a job at a doctor’s office/hospital by the time I am 35.
