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.

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. …show more content…
As the curriculum and outcomes demonstrate the value of an education at LKSOM, experiences lend insights about a person. While no patients will be directly influenced by my playing on a soccer team, the traits engendered by many years of team sports will have a profound effect on my practice. A person’s experiences make a person who they are; the experiences available at LKSOM are what makes it so appealing. After reading student accounts and researching all that Temple and life in Philadelphia offers, I am convinced that the rigor of education, the number of opportunities, and the depth of experiences available makes LKSOM extremely attractive. Opening my mind to new perspectives and unique challenges faced by others will be exciting. I look forward to enhancing my self-awareness and honing my skills in medical practice at LKSOM. In the future, I believe I will reflect and be extremely satisfied with the community that I found, grew into, and helped improve in Philadelphia while attending

Aaron Sedrick is a senior at Joplin High School. He has made it his goal to graduate in the top 10% of his class with Honors. This ambitious goal is only a reflection of his dedication that permeates through the rest of his life, from waking up every morning at 5:20 am to get ready for LDS Seminary, to taking some of the most difficult courses his school offers. He attributes his ambition and dedication to his father, who started medical school just as he began kindergarten. This gave him the unique perspective of watching someone much older than him go through similar experiences and then succeed.
The International Summer Camps are very enlightening because they have allowed me to not only be healthy and take part in physical activity; but to embrace my culture, assist youth in acknowledging the importance of education, take part in team oriented workshops, and listen to key speakers that overcame great adversity. I have learned about the importance of assisting others and placing a grin on another person’s face, which is my primary motive for becoming a family practitioner. I have a desire to major in biology, minor in public health, and declare pre-med and I will continue to place forth my utmost effort as I embark on my
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.
Hope you had a wonderful New Year. I want to thank you once again for giving the opportunity to interview at St. Joseph’s Family Medicine Residency Program on September 29, 2015.

During my undergraduate and graduate years, I maintained full-time employment to ensure college remained affordable for my family and I. Hence, my employment experiences have provided me with a great respect for social and ethical views that differ from my own which will allow me work well with others from diverse backgrounds. In addition, my extensive employment history has granted me with the work ethic required to endure the strenuous work schedule of both a medical student and physician. Furthermore, working at the University of Miami Hospital, specifically, has enlightened me about the practicalities of providing direct patient care. Ultimately, being able to work while enrolled full-time in courses has taught me the art of time management; a trait I believe will be essential to my success while in medical

Through my studies of human expression and its reflection of how people deal with world events in different ways, I developed sensitivity to other worldviews that continues to prove useful through my daily interactions with people of different backgrounds. I have learned that just like art, medicine involves pattern recognition and derives insight from experiences. Similarly, what I especially enjoy about being a medical assistant is interacting with patients on a daily basis and getting to be a part of their medical experiences, even if it is just by lending an ear. The experiences on my path to a career in medicine have made me want to make a real, tangible difference in the lives of those around me – a difference that leaves my patients in a better condition than they were in before I met them.
I joined because I wanted to understand the community that I would be taking part in for the entirety of my undergraduate degree. The community itself was within Central Valley, California, which was also known to be largely medically underserved and economically disadvantaged. I was able to witness this firsthand, as a college student focused on pursuing medicine, the impact of healthcare disparities, and social determinants of health. These experiences have instilled in me a commitment to serving and empowering marginalized communities. By actively engaging with other campus-based organizations and promoting health education initiatives, I aspire to contribute to RFU’s community outreach efforts and foster positive change in the communities

My dedication paid off; I felt a remarkable sense of achievement as I gratefully received offers to play Division I baseball. Eventually, the demanding practices and repetitive workouts proved too much for my back to handle and requiring a daunting decision by me. In the past, I stoically persevered through my injuries by searching within; however, this felt different similar to a mental shortcoming. I sought advice from trusted individuals, and after consulting my family, teammates, and coaches, I chose health and academics over continuing my baseball career. Medical school is a long journey that will present numerous challenges and changes in course; I am confident in my capability to overcome inherent adversity and persist through this rigorous time while tolerating the emotional, mental, and physical demands that follow.
I am incredibly curious, capable, and passionate when it comes to the fields of science and medicine. I can only imagine myself operating in a profession where I get to make direct, tangible contributions to people and bettering their lives. My identity is first and foremost defined by my faith as a Seventh Day Adventist, and second by my family and community. The Loma Linda PA Program can allow me to become the embodiment of all that I value: a highly-trained medical professional that can use her faith and medical training to consistently serve their community with compassion and
