Describe one of your short and long term academic goals. How do your academic goals correlate with your professional goals? What is it that you need to do to accomplish your short term goal and be successful in this course? My short-term academic goal is to obtain my bachelor’s degree in health services administration, my long-term academic goal is to do a Master’s in Business Administration. My academic goals are strongly related to my professional goals, since I am the manager of the Quality Assurance department for a Medical Company in South Florida. My long-term goal professionally is to be the Director of the Coding and Billing department of a medical company. I’m thinking that to be successful on this course I have to complete all the assignments, follow the syllabus, not to stop participating in the live seminars and do my contribution on the weekly discussions. It is a very profitable class because through it I will be able to transform my learning experience in student credits.
