In being a travel nurse I not only get to see the differences across the world.

Throughout, the documentary Code Black was inspirational to me by the unity showed amongst the staff. doctors came together in hopes of creating a better health care system.

Through the third-riding time I have accumulated, I have seen a few gruesome encounters such as motor vehicle accidents as well as many different traumas. I have been lucky to be able to go through the health occupations curriculum at my high school and attain my Certified Nursing Assistant certification as well as my healthcare provider, CPR/AED and First Aid certifications. I also received clinical experience through Lawrence General Hospital in the Emergency Center, during my time there my love for medicine grew tremendously and fed my ambition not only for high school, but for college and my future as well. I find comfort in helping anyone and creating a better situation for them if someone is going through a hard time, as I did when I was younger with my great grandparents. Knowing how much a medical hardship can affect someone makes me want to help that much more.
It was interesting to see the difference between the areas. Although I enjoyed both, I was busier in the trauma area.

Volunteer at Abington Memorial Hospital.

Advanced Concept 1 – World Wide Poverty During the interview, Dr. Paul Farmer commented about healthcare infrastructure in the United States and other under-developed countries. He also emphasized about the importance of community-based healthcare when used with institutionalized healthcare. Dr. Farmer served for the United Nations as an envoy, and helped Rwanda and Haiti to build its healthcare infrastructure. He also helped many other countries such as Peru, Mexico and Russia using his expertise.

The physician assistant occupation truly began in 1965 when a considerable shortage of physicians brought forth a breakthrough. At this time there were also many corpsmen returning from the Vietnam War with adequate skills to access surgical conditions but without the formal education. A man by the name of Dr. Eugene Stead then created a program at Duke University to give these people formal training and education. By the time they finished their two-year fast-tracked program these individuals would be equipped to provide medical care to underserved populations and rural communities under the direction of a physician. For centuries nations have looked for ways to meet military, and public health needs, as well as providing care to rural and underserved areas where physicians did not exist.
I chose TTUHSC SOM because of the ability to learn medicine in a place that values the art of patient care in its foundation as well as the ability to do anything I hope to do in medicine guided by the strength of its mission and the care that TTUHSC SOM provides for its students. I would like to conduct my medical career in a setting that converges between urban and rural settings. My parents brought their strong work ethic from Ghana, cultivated on their family’s farms, to Austin, Texas where it was critical in encouraging my own desire to work in close contact with a diverse population of patients. My experiences in the communities I’ve lived in and health care have provided me with the insight to work within both types of areas. My most prominent experiences in health care have come from working in clinics that serve underserved populations.
