Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her and i remember I was just always so mesmerised by the idea of the human body.
This past December we decided to move back to Virginia because I knew the Dental Hygiene Program at Old Dominion University was the program I wanted to be part of. I have always enjoyed working with patients whether they are young children or adults. During my years of working chairside, I was able to form bonds with patients and gain their trust. I love helping people, especially when it comes to oral health care. These reasons made me want to further my career from a dental assistant to a dental hygienist.
Many people confuse a dental hygienist with a dentist or a dental assistant. Dental hygienists are the people that handle most of the cleaning and surgery processes. I chose this career to research because my mom worked in the dental field and she enjoyed it. Another reason why I am so interested in this subject is because I have struggled with teeth and oral issues before, so I would like to help kids and adults with the same issues as me. I would love to be a dental hygienist because the pay is high, you can make new friends, and you have manageable hours.
A little girl not even ten years old suffered from a genetic autosomal chronic gastrointestinal condition—pseudo-obstruction, a rare and fatal disorder that results in the recipient not being able to absorb the necessary nutrients to live a healthy life due to intestinal blocking. Belonging to a devout Christian family, Anna’s parents hoped that she would be healed by a miracle from God. When Anna remained unhealed and was living out her final days in constant pain, her mother, Christy Beam, was on the brink of losing faith. Not only is this little girl’s story an incredible journey, but her mother’s fight to find a solution for her daughter reminds the world that miracles indeed happen. When Annabel Beam was five years old, her parents became concerned when she threw up constantly.

My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now. My grandmother’s stroke was the catalyst and along with these four years and especially my science and math courses have lead me into a career in medicine and
Please describe any contributions of distinction during medical school (in any and all academic areas: research, teaching, teamwork, clinical care, and community service). One of my proudest contributions during medical school was identifying ultrasound education as something that I wanted to expand, so I worked with a small group of my classmates to start an ultrasound education program. The goal of our program was to help our peers learn how to use ultrasound imaging while gaining valuable anatomy and physiology education. We spent countless hours developing a curriculum, finding faculty mentors, and teaching first year medical students. Our hope is that one day this program will change the formal ultrasound curriculum offered at UCSF.
The most important one that will get her where she wants to be in life, is graduating college and getting her RN. She knows that having a steady job with steady income is very important, so of course she is going to move up in the health care field. This leads me to her second goal which is becoming a Nurse Anesthetist. It has to deal with anesthesiology and she is super excited to start helping people recover. Her last goal is to work at UAMS.
I was inspired by the story of Dr Michael DeBakey to apply to Tulane University. Dr. DeBakey pursued a career that I have dreamt of pursuing since I was a little girl. I have always wanted to become a Cardiac Surgeon, and knowing that Dr. DeBakey was able to become a successful Cardiac Surgeon with the helps of Tulane University excites me with the idea of attending. In fact, he was still enrolled at Tulane 's Medical School when he developed the roller pump and that makes me wonder of the contributions I can make to the world given Tulane 's resources. Not only am I inspired by an alumni 's path through Tulane, but I am also extremely interested in Tulane 's Women 's Studies program.
I admire how much knowledge physician assistants obtain throughout their years of schooling since they learn a great amount about many portions of medicine. I always desired to learn as much about science and medicine as I possibly could; therefore, this profession is perfect for me. I also love caring for people and that is what I get to do as a medical professional. My desire to learn and my passion for volunteering and helping others will allow me to be an essential part of the physician assistant profession. I now desire to work in either Infectious Disease, because of the panel, or Orthopedic Surgery, due to my love for working with injuries like breaks, strains, sprains, and tears.
I realized that each community that I have been living in had its unique personality. Being a student at a magnet high school, South West CTA, majored in dental studies was an eye opener for my current career choice, Health Sciences. In the dental major, I had the chance to learn about the anatomy, diseases, and physiology of the human body. The teachers gave us the opportunity to research about different health issues. By understanding health issues more thoroughly, I made a visual media project of urinary system infections.
