Throughout my life, my parents have supported my ideas, and encouraged me to follow my intuition and find my passion. Basically, this is why I attended Medical school!
Following College graduation, a spiritual journey of mine has taken place, looking for what I really want in life and career. I asked myself earnestly "If all the risks and the practical assumptions were not taken in account, what would I want to further study?" and a certain voice was saying "The Heart".
This spectacular organ which works continuously to keep us alive was my major interest in medicine. Passionately reading and discovering its anatomy, physiology and diseases made me score high in this field.
On my final year, I was chosen to take five-week clinical attachment with a Cardiologist at the "Coronary Care Unit" and it was my experience of a life time! Following that, I got a certified training in Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and (BCLS). These clinical experiences has made me more eager to study more about cardiovascular medicine. …show more content…
Proudly, my efforts were rewarded a year later, when my research was chosen to be published in a medical journal and presented in AlNahrain Scientific Conference. This experience made me further believe in the power of research and how the qualified in-depth researches are great influential factors that made substantial changes in the history of medicine, as they will have in its future.
In addition to my passion and research background, there is another and more significant cause to choose attending those courses; Heart diseases, the world's number one cause of death, are particularly rising among Arab countries including Iraq. It's a challenge and it's putting more responsibility on new Iraqi doctors to take the lead and dig for future solutions.
As I volunteered at medical centers and learned about the professions of doctors, I will continue to pursue these interests by partaking in clubs such as the American Medical Student Association to learn more about the medical field as a career and the BioMedical Science Club to understand more about biological sciences and medicine. Furthermore, as I am currently taking a class on biomedical ethics, I desire to participate in the Bioethics Forum to discuss ethical issues facing in the medical world. Additionally, As I have partaken in Red Cross in which has allowed me to bring awareness to different diseases, I will be able to continue this activity in Heart to Heart to raise alertness to the risks of high blood pressure and Emergency Health Education to instruct emergency procedures regarding to health since I am First Aid, CPR, and AED certified. In the Tandon School of Engineering, I will major in the Science and Technology Studies program and understand more about the relations between science and
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 would come to learn that Montefiore Medical Center is the teaching hospital of Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
I took all the sciences I could, eventually majoring in Biochemistry in college to understand the workings of the body. I always thought I wanted to be a pathologist. I was aware of pathology assistants but was unaware of what their job entailed. In my junior year of undergrad, I was fortunate enough to find out that my college worked with a teaching hospital, Montefiore Medical Center. Through them, I was able to obtain an internship in the Surgical
Out of the many events of my life that have molded me to aspire to be a physician, a humid August day in 2003 would be the pivotal moment that introduced me into the path of medicine. My father, brother, and I had been working on the front of our house to add on a porch, when my mother pulled up from receiving a routine chest x-ray due to her having influenza, and even as a nine year old child, I could tell by her expression as she approached us that something had gone terribly wrong. With anguish in her eyes, she said, “They found two spots on my lung, and they say it might be cancer.” and in that instant, my world began to collapse in on me. All I understood about cancer at such a young age was that it killed people, devastated lives, and
Growing up surrounded by several people in the medical field, I had always pondered what I would be when I grew up. When I was about eight years old, I was determined to grow up and be a cardiologist, just like my uncle. At a young age, I was fascinated by the heart, it interested me that one thing controlled so much in the human body. However that dream changed as I grew older, as much as I would love being the one to save someone’s life, I realized that responsibility was entirely too much for me. I have had many different dreams about my future; such as being a basketball player, a teacher, and even a model.
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University’s (LKSOM) mission and values reflect the will of an institution to impart students with an understanding of the necessary balance between gaining knowledge and fostering a sense of community. This commitment manifests in the emphasis on longitudinal care, interprofessional team learning, and the many varied opportunities for volunteering in the city and abroad. The opportunity to contribute to a wonderful community in one of the most culturally vibrant cities in America has drawn me to LKSOM. An education at LKSOM means many things: living in a beautiful city, having the opportunity to participate in world-changing research, serving an incredibly diverse patient population, traveling abroad, as well as pursuing various other life-changing experiences.
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.
However, I have retaken my MCAT this past August, and recently was notified I have improved my score by eight points to a 507. I believe a more competitive score is vital to proving the capability of accomplishing the coursework required of a medical student. I have also taken this time to accompany the ChenMed team on a medical mission trip to Nejapa, Nicaragua. During this trip I was able to continue my passion of global care, and gained more shadowing experiences with new practices. These past few years have had many stressful complications that I have accepted, resolved, and grown from.
Holding a master’s degree in clinical research will enable me to conduct high quality, meaningful research which I hope it will make me an effective member of the field of congenital intervention. Working in a tertiary institution, like yours at Stanford University, with renowned congenital interventional cardiologists, cutting-edge technology and large volume of complicated cases and with exciting research opportunities would definitely be a life time opportunity and dream come true for me. I am certain that I am well prepared and ready to go through the entire training, rigor and challenges required to be an efficient interventional pediatric cardiologist. I believe not only will I learn, but also, I will be able to
Moreover, I found that this course is challenging, rewarding and inspiring topic. How the human body works, repairs itself and can be improved especially related to cardiovascular always make me interested into it. This is why studying cardiovascular science at master level is an ideal choice for me. Being
When I was 16 years old, I had decided that I wanted to be a doctor but I had not decided what branch of biology I wanted to do. I had faith in my belief that I wanted to be a doctor and I had the confidence and motivation to do it. This faith I had in myself, really pushed me to excel in biology as I knew that I enjoyed biology and in the future I wanted a job associated with it. The knowledge I acquired in my class had so much meaning and purpose in my personal life because I had faith in my decision to be a doctor and pursue that as a career.
Ever since then, I knew I wanted to provide patients that go through such harsh medical and surgery procedures to not feel pain and most importantly to provide comfort. I know I am still at a young age, only a freshman in high school, where my decision regarding my future career might change one day, but I believe my mind and heart are more than
Holding a diploma in my hands and going to college has been one of my dearest dreams; I have always believed in reaching my maximum potential and dreamed numerous times of being able to go to medical school, study, help and lead my community through the medical field. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to become a doctor, I have always been amazed and feel an immense interest in learning specifically about biology and medicine; I feel a serious motivation towards understanding how the human body works; each organ, tissue and every cell interests me; I desire to learn and understand how the diseases manifest, how to diagnose and master each technique to treat them;I am extremely committed to my education and to reaching my goal which is to become a doctor.
We also had a very informative and up to date course giving us the latest ways of management and medications. I was astonished by how advanced is this field, interventional cardiology was the part that I really liked and witnessed the importance of how we have to act rapidly to improve the outcomes. I also felt the extreme importance of that since cardiovascular diseases come on the top of the list of the most common causes of death in our community and working hard in this field in treating and preventing these disease can have a huge impact on many
