“The Plastic Journey”

My journey started off with one question in mind: How do I become a plastic surgeon? I wanted to learn about this field through the eyes of someone who is a plastic surgeon, understand their educational background, and explore different types of surgery and the machines and technology surgeons use. However, this one original question led to me learning about many different fields of medicine by talking to a range of health professionals at the conferences I went to across the country. It broadened my ideas about possible career paths and how to pursue them.
