Hence, I joined the same hospital as a hospitalist, which has been an extraordinary experience and I am glad that I made this decision because exposure to diverse pathology, higher volume and faster pace helped expand boundaries of my responsibilities, solidified my confidence in my skills. I am becoming increasingly comfortable with challenges of time and resource management. It has broadened my vision as an internist because to be a good rheumatologist, it is elementary to be a sound internist. To understand the dynamics of executive aspect of modern medicine and its quality control, I regularly participate in the peer review committee, antibiotic steward ship committee and physician leadership
I have been able to work side-by-side with a Pathologists ' Assistant since day one and because of this, I fully understand their role in the medical society. I owe a lot of what I learned as a grossing technician to them because of their guidance, input, and examples. The more I asked them questions and the more I watched them work, the more captivated I became by their role and realized I wanted to be in their position. As a result, I believe that my close working relationship with the Pathologists ' and Pathologists ' Assistants, as well as the exposure and knowledge I have gained by working in the department will help me succeed, particularly in Loma Linda University 's Pathologists ' Assistant program.
Whenever someone sees a doctor, they automatically assume that they are medical doctors. Many people do not know that there is more than one type of doctors. This does not necessary include the field of doctors, but rather the type. The other type of doctor is known as a D.O., which is also known as an osteopathic doctor. I, myself, did not even know what a D.O. was. Also, I thought that D.O.s were beneath M.D., and that being a medical doctor was the highest level of achievement that one could accomplish in the medical field. In my previous paper, I talked about the difference between the holistic approach and the reductionism approach. My terrible medical experience made me think differently about what I wanted to get into and the way that
As a patient, I prefer a physician to be knowledgeable on new medical information. The University of Colorado School of Medicine is extremely up to date on medical advances and does tremendous research demonstrating their dedication to the Colorado community. Trust is another important component that is expected as a patient. The education that is
Why did you decide to become a physician and how do you plan to use your time as an undergraduate student to reach your goal? *
I possess the experience of having lived in an underserved area and good humor necessary for the study of medicine. Medicine is a field that can be taxing on a person mentally and emotional because of the things one encounters everyday. A good sense of humor can keep up good spirits. Laughter and smiling is medicine for the soul and they are contagious. Having lived in underserved areas I used my good humor to stay in a happy place. Due to my personal experience with underserved areas draws me to FSU COM. This medical school provides the opportunity for their third and fourth year students to work with underserved populations to respond to the needs of the community. After receiving my degree I would have had the experience necessary for me

Ever since grade school, I was passionate about working in the field of medicine, and science. I enjoyed anatomy, medical spelling and terminology, and reading about the healthcare industry. Because of my passion for healthcare, I decided to to attend Health Sciences High. There, I was given the best opportunities, such as, medical internships and college health courses. My plans and goals had turned me into a mature young adult. Now that I have my mind set on my aspirations, I hope to practice the qualities needed to be a triumphant dentist and dental surgeon. Of course everyone wants success, wealth, and happiness in the future. My long term goal is to pursue a career in the field of dentistry and earn my DDS (doctorate in dental surgery)
I have always had the intense desire to care and look after people from a very young age. I firmly believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life possible and this is what had drawn me to occupational therapy as a career path in the first place. It is so easy to take for granted all the everyday tasks we can do and we seldom consider the effect of not being able to complete them. As an occupational therapist I would be able to make a positive impact on someone’s life and make it possible for them to enjoy their life. I want the opportunity to provide support to people, help them gain independence and watch them grow more confident in their own ability. I want to be part of such a rewarding career.
Ever since high school, I knew I wanted to work in the pathology field. I thought I wanted to be a pathologist. I talked to the career counselors at my school and expressed my interest. Fortunately for me, I was contacted not much after about an internship at Montefiore Medical Center.
I believe each patient should be treated individually regardless of how similar the symptoms are, and in order to do so a physician needs to understand both the science behind physiology and the behaviors. As I progressed through my academic journey, I shadowed numerous osteopathic specialists, such as Dr. Zinaida Pelkey, Dr. Celia Liang and Dr. Syed Qadri. Observing these physicians utilize the interdependencies of the body’s systems to formulate a comprehensive treatment further fueled my inquisition and enthusiasm about becoming an osteopathic
Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission. Impressively, this speaks volumes about Morehouse’s student body and their love for service, especially the special attention that is dedicated to the local community. This
Currently, I am a member of the Dual Language Honors program at Miami Dade College. Through this wonderful program I have been involved in rigorous classes that challenged my understanding of the world. I also engaged in a bilingual and bicultural environment. Furthermore, I developed leadership skills and truly discover my passion for medicine. Now that I am transferring to complete my Bachelor education in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, I am highly interested in obtaining an education that will complement my knowledge and prepare me to succeed in my field of study. My goal is to transfer to an institution that offers research opportunities to undergraduates in biology and chemistry, in order to facilitate a medium to develop scientific
My leadership philosophy has been developed through my upbringing, personal values, and experiences. Each one of these has been an influential part in building my leadership skills and has guided me as an NCO.
