The physician-scientist has comparable roles to both physicians and scientists, but also has many roles that are unique to this occupation. These "unique" roles are the reason why physician-scientists play an important role in society and the delivery/understanding of healthcare. They are important for our evolving society and it 's understanding of healthcare. Clinical physicians understand the clinical symptoms of diseases/illnesses and follow strict procedures for the treatment of their patients. On the other hand, scientists, biomedical in nature, attempt to understand the causes and mechanisms behind diseases/illnesses and try to discover innovative modes of medical intervention (i.e.
As time passed, my yearning to assist patients heightened. My desire to make a difference increased my determination to learn as much as I could in order to make a contribution to their well-being. Volunteering for a family physician helped me gain hands-on experience. I had the opportunity to interact with patients and assist with procedures. After many observations, I gained insight on
I am applying to the Health Science Pathway, or Medical Academy, in the hope that I can find which medical path is right for me. I have always been interested in a career that betters the lives of others because I am moved by those who do that line of work. My parents, however, are the ones I really take inspiration from, due to their loving hearts and desire for me to thrive. I care about nutrition and I enjoy reading and learning how to cure the human body’s various maladies. And now, my number one goal is to become a Medical Dermatologist and purify the skin of many.
Shadowing a colorectal surgeon alongside his interdisciplinary team highlighted the necessity of teamwork and effective communication inbwteen doctors as well as patients.

The nursing becomes more and more involved in the communication with patients and their families, and also providing not only physical, but also emotional support. In some cases it literally means support for patients until the end of life. Moreover, it is important to be able to develop relationships with patients quickly and clearly understand their needs. Thus, I believe I have all of the above mentioned qualities and will do my best to improve them even more. The various skills which I gained while working in the operation theatre can be basis for the future studying and practice.
We respected it and I let them signed the refusal of treatment form and documented it in the patient’s chart. Despite our diversities and differences in terms of religion and belief, I didn’t judged their decision of refusing a life-saving treatment but rather I considered and respected it as I understand that culture is very important aspect of our lives. (C.#77). (C.#113a – Leadership) (C. #81) I knew that as a nurse I should be a pro-life, that my main function is to promote health, prolong and save life but I also kept in my mind that I should be a patient advocate to their wishes and rights. So to help the patient, the doctor just ordered Erythropoietin to promote formation of red blood cells, so, I administered it as prescribed and I gave my health teachings and encouraged to eat foods that are rich in iron and also Vitamin C which promotes iron absorption.
I want to make an impact on each patient’s life, and to try and influence them to follow their dreams, and to care for their health. I do not want my patients to dread going to the doctor, I want them to have excitement over it. I want them to take control of their lives by the knowledge I will provide them. I will do that by doing my job to the best of my ability, and yet be known as a friend to my
In all my experiences as a nurse, I’ve realized the importance of communication, providing holistic care to an individual and empowering them with the knowledge to manage their health. When an illness strikes a person, it affects not just his body, but also his mind and spirit. The art of communication is invaluable to patient interaction and establishing a therapeutic nurse-patient relationship, that facilitate coping mechanisms for patients, moreover it prepared myself as a nurse to meet their individual needs. Furthermore, there is at the moment an insurmountable demand for survivorship care as a result of the advancement in technology and medicine, which made living beyond life expectancy possible for increasingly more people. Living after cancer treatment is not free of complications as there are acute and chronic side effects of treatment that requires constant monitoring and attention, and this information spurred me to shift my focus from palliative to survivorship care.
Therapists have to see their patient in multiple sessions. Besides knowing the patient’s name and injury, physical therapists can learn more about their patients during their sessions. While helping their patients get better, physical therapists can have friendly conversations with their patients and get to know them better. The relationship between physical therapists and their clients is so strong, and that’s what interest me most about this major. I would enjoy a job where I can informally talk to my clients, gaining a good relationship with them, while improving their injury.
It was through my experiences, from working as a volunteer in a city-wide event to my research and clinical experiences, that helped me to not only emphasize and expand upon my interests, but also better understand what a doctor really was and the intimate relationship formed between patients and doctors. Like the doctors I met, as a doctor, I hope to emphasize the importance of positive patient communication as a part of the patient’s overall
I was able to apply it to both my academic and personal life to great benefit. Shadowing also allowed me to understand that physicians are just as human as everyone else. The ones I shadowed cared deeply about their patients and at times need to take a moment to decompress. These qualities are something I have carried with me and hope to implement one day as a physician
We do our best so that the community comes out of the ER happier than when they arrive. I believe our impact goes unnoticed physically, because most of our efforts are making sure our patients are emotionally healed as well as physically. As volunteers, our duties are to assure our patients are well and comfortable even in the middle of hardship and chaos. It has made a better all around person and it has taught me several valuable lessons- it’s the small gestures that go a long way. A smile, cup of coffee, or even a small stuffed
Through becoming a nurse I aspire to take my education in medicine and delegate my efforts to not only improving the medical status of my patients but also to improve the mental well being of them as well. My experience growing into a world where prime physical health was not an option, the opportunity to see how a staff of passionate nurses can contribute to the mental stability and growth of a patient was an honor and inspiration that drives my passion for this career choice. Also, over the last few years I have grown a particular interest in medical research and would love to take his passion with me to expand my interest and contribute to the extensive research program at
I am pursuing a career in the medical field because of my passion for helping others. Seeing people in need compels me to become a better person. The struggle my father went through inspires me to help people because I want to be the person that is able to provide the patient with a sense of comfort. I would like them to know that they are in the hands of a professional, and I will try to become the professional that they feel comfortable in putting their well-being in. I want to become someone that cares for the well-being for others as well as my own.
I am not just interested in becoming a Physician Assistant; I dream of, and am driven to become one. I have been fascinated by the medical field as long as I can remember. I had the opportunity to begin scribing for a physician and absolutely loved the patient interaction, the variety of duties that had to be accomplished and the fact that for some people a fifteen to twenty minute appointment may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of a day or life, but to those who were being seen, their lives are instantly changed for the better. I learned such a vast amount of knowledge every single day I worked there. I grew to love the medical field more and more and am confident I was meant to work my hardest to be able to provide care to patients as my life occupation; specifically rural areas like the one I grew up in.
