Why to go to UCSF

UCSF is mostly a medical school that helps me earn my medical degree. UCSF is a great for anyone going into the medical fields or anything medical related.  This school ranked  top 3 in the US besides Harvard and Stanford being top 1 and 2. The university also focuses on health science and anything in that category . UCSF has many door opening opportunities that i know can help me in the future, and the reason to go is to be able to get a excellent education and from having that being able to get a good job somewhere.


The beginning of this university begins with the gold rush in California when doctors nurses and dentistry came, but while in the process  they offered these people the best education and school for them to learn in. By this happening UCSF was founded in 1864 by a man the name of Toland. In 1907 they had made a nursing school making it the fourth addition to the school. Almost every 10 years a new facility was made. Currently UCSF is one of the biggest medical school and one of the top medical school.


What it looks like


Getting into UCSF

You need a bachelors degree, without any degree you can't be selected. Also a Gpa of at least 3.0 is required which is a B average. For an application there is a fee of  $90 requirement for the application for residents of the U.S or a $110 if you're not. Then they'll review you're school transfer and from there it is decide if you should be in or not . Its decided upon deans and the campus' if you are selected .

Campus living

In UCSF there is 3 living spaces or 4. They all are walking distance and not that far from many places. The dorms have enough for a family with 3 rooms or a apartment with 1 room for yourself. They all have this and are well furnished, but the fourth one is a empty lot that you're only allowed to live in for 6 months and then you're suppose to move out. 


I want to be a plastic surgeon and work hopefully in the California area thats why to me it is very important to attend UCSF because i found that working in the community which would be better job opportunities. The reason i see a plastic surgeon in my future is because knowing a plastic surgeon never has the same job everyday they'll see new clients with different cases not only working with the obvious which are a rhinoplasty which is a nose job or a augmentation mammoplasty which is a breast enlargement.  A plastic surgeon is one of the most interesting jobs to me being able to cut someone and fix them to make them feel like they're someone perfect and make them feel better about themselves.


Career description

An average salary for a plastic surgeon is $100,000 to $500,000 or if you're working in a higher better level as in maybe LA you could be making up to $860,000 a year. an hour a surgeon can make up to $70 an hour for a beginner and $90 or more for a medium one or a experienced one. Education is about 4 years for a basic which would be just to be an MD medicine degree and then after that its 5 to 6 years learning how to do regular surgery and plastic and usually graduating with a masters.  A benefits about it is making people feel better and getting paid a good amount, travel quiet often.

primary sources

It was stated that its a rigors job that you have to be always on your feet you're never alone and you have to always be a hard worker. Many things are tied into this that not only do you work long hours and only just work on your feet most of the time . Seeing people smile and see how they're fixed up helps. Another thing is that not only do plastic surgeons do plastic surgery they can do basic surgery as in removing tumors or bumps that are unwanted or not needed, and you can do anything like that to any patient of age not just older people.
