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
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.
I am writing to express my interest in being a part of the Pharmacy Technician program under the Practicum study. I have always had an interest in the medical field and want to pursue a career in that field. I’ve had an interest in cardiology and now am showing a great interest in being a pharmacist and believe that Pharmacy Technician is the best way to get the experience I need and the first level feel as I work towards a doctorate degree and pursue its higher position. I began to take Health Science as a junior and it’s given me a great amount of information to better my decision on what I really want to do. We’ve learned lots of medical terminology, parts of the body, functions of the body, and medicines.
My placements consisted of hematology, clinical neuroscience, acute mental health, complex care and a medicine unit. In looking back over my assessments for these placements I have been able to put together a list of my strengths and areas for growth and from this list I have created my learning plan for my first year of practice. Strengths. Upon reviewing past reflections and feedback from tutors and peers, my strengths include “effective communication with all appropriate parties.” I am reflective and therefore identify areas of strengths and limitations and areas that need improvement; I also seek out constructive feedback regarding my practice (A. Ilic, personal communication, DATE) According to my preceptor last semester I demonstrates a sound understanding of self-care, self-reflection and work life balance. I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE).
I have also obtained further understanding by attending ACVR in Orlando and several continuing education courses throughout the year. I firmly believe that I have the intellect, drive and talents necessary to thrive in a radiology residency. I already carry the curiosity and hunger for radiology but am in search for a residency program encourages my curiosity, a program that is committed to serving their patients, and a hardworking department that possesses an ethos of excellence. A residency that selects me will receive an optimistic, passionate and intellectually curious individual who will work diligently to serve both patients and
Moreover, I have also been actively involved in clinical research through my Pharm.D project under Dr. Nirmeen A. Sabry supervision at Cairo University. It is a prospective study of “How rational is antibiotics used for hospitalized patients in some Egypt hospitals” it was great to share our results and realize that the prevalence of inappropriate use of antibiotics is high enough to recommend rational use in hospitals after clinical pharmacist consultation. I will employ this expertise to conduct a successful and publishable residency
Fortunately, I was selected and was thrilled to examine the human anatomy with an incredible “hands-on” experience. Clearly, a simple summer job at a hospital sparked and fueled my interest in science. The string of experiences has directed me to my calling in life. The Tri-Health program helped me realize my interest in medicine and my passion to pursue a career in
My knowledges of molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology have grown, but I know there is a lot to learn and, as always, to keep learning is my final goal. This is the moment to challenging myself and pursuit other experiences in an area that involve Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I want to continue my education at the Graduate Program in Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Rice University. This program is the best option to continue improving my scientific and professional skills. The privileged research conditions of your university, the facilities, the faculty and the outstanding researcher lines make this university the perfect place for a doctoral training.
What I adore most about the show is that some of the healthcare information has been correct. It’s exciting to hear something medical related and know exactly what they are talking about. For example, last semester I took Human Anatomy. At the time, we were learning about hormones, specifically growth hormones. On a particular episode, the patient produced too much growth hormone which caused acromegaly.
Growing up in a culturally diverse city in Nashville, I have gained cultural competency from my interactions with people from a plethora of ethnic backgrounds. Lastly, I am a highly ambitious person who always looks to broaden his horizons. Thus, I’m returning to school for the upcoming fall semester to take upper-division biology courses. I plan to take anatomy and physiology I and II, physiology, and research if the opportunity is available. These classes will better prepare me for medical school by helping me establish a solid foundation in the anatomical sciences.
Because of these experiences, medicine and curing illness has become my dream and passion. I started my clinical rotations in medicine and surgery during my third year of medical school in Iraq. Though I enjoyed all of them, I was especially drawn to internal medicine because it exposed me to a wide variety of medical cases and required quick critical thinking skills to make accurate diagnosis. The complex medical cases seen in internal medicine are intellectually challenging and rewarding at the same time. I found myself very eager to spend
Besides, smallpox disease developed into other complications even after the inoculation, such as stubby fingers, limiting joint movements etc. Due to the smallpox epidemic threat, the inoculation procedure got popular in other places and for other similar diseases. The benefits of inoculation outweighed the risks for children. Boylston figured out inoculation could produce certain type of immunity for the virus which can terminate the infection and save lives. Also, he ensured from his experiments that the inoculation process had less fatal structure of the disease in the human body.
After extensive research on ETSU’s honors program, I decided that becoming a Buccaneer Scholar is for me. I chose to apply, because the honors program will bring me closer to my dream of becoming a general surgeon by preparing me for the intensity of medical school. In order to succeed at medical school, it is imperative to have passion, confidence, and discipline- qualities that describe an honors scholar. I believe that the challenge of honors will instill the knowledge needed to not only succeed in medical school but throughout my life. Therefore, I chose honors at ETSU as the path that will lead me to my dream.
Through the Summer Urban Health Fellowship, I will be able to understand the health disparities within communities allowing me to help my community medically one day to the best of my abilities. I want to gain new knowledge of the health disparities communities like where I come from, face. Currently, I am taking a class on the health in the Latino/Chicano population. This class has broadened my horizons. It has exposed me to how things such as race, social class, income, access to resources, environment, and many other things has an outstanding impact on the quality and quantity of health care they receive.
