I have an issue I want to share.
I need an advice or more like hear what you have to say.
I have always wanted to study medical rehabilitation (physiotherapy) or better still medicine I have always dreamed of having close meeting with patients, diagnose and treat diseases as well and research but didn’t get my dream course .
I got admitted to study dental tech from jamb and from school as well
I never like dentistry or anything related to it
Then I switched immediately to biomedical technology
Seeing the course allocation from 1st to finally year is quite interesting that it has combination of both basic medicine in the first two years with electrical engineering and bio sciences as well.
Then coming down to other years;
Has medicine, pharmacy, biotechnology, artificial organs and robotic surgery Etc
It was quite interesting that I feel like I have arrived in a place where I gain different knowledge from medicine and Engineering (that’s what they school even tell us as well).
Now coming to this year academic session
The school brought out the course outline which consist of only biotechnology/sciences
Part of basic medicine and engineering
As what we study
I felt like I can’t do this
This is not what we saw at the first time
I want to help in solving clinical issues or finding cures on diseases not fixing machines
Or producing one
I want to change to another department
But it makes me feel like I don’t know what I want judging from what my family will say.
Here is me being happy over the course I switched into
Now I don’t like it again because is now becoming full engineering
I feel like if I want to do medical engineering I better go learn it as a skill than sitting in class for years to come out with a certificate I won’t be comfortable with.
I want to be a medical personnel 👩🏻⚕️
Not a medical mechanic 👨🔧
Please am quite confused now
I feel like am wasting time in school
