Abstract:   (1331 Views)
Objective(s): Career aspirations are ideals that individuals like to achieve in the future. The medical profession has always been in the children and adolescents' list of aspirations. The purpose of this article is to study the position of medical profession in career anchors and its reasons.
Method: This is an applied, cross-sectional study. A sample of 120 students was randomly selected. The data were collected through interviews. The data were then analyzed in SPSS.
Results: Findings showed that the medical profession, as a specialized career, is the top aspiration of children and adolescents, followed by engineering and police (P<0.05). Four factors are found to be effective in playing a key role in determining career aspiration namely size and power, gender stereotypes, prestige, and inner self for children and adolescents (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Medical profession was found to be children and adolescents' first career aspiration. It appears that what children and adolescents wish is a part of their growth process according to the theory of Gottfredson. Various factors are involved in selecting the medical profession as the career aspiration. For these reasons, it is essential to direct the career aspiration toward other profession engaged with inherently medical nature in order to prevent the influx toward medical profession and occupational problems after graduation.
