Becoming an Anesthesia Assistant would allow me to work as a healthcare professional, help people in their time of need, and have an increasingly dynamic career. I know that my attention to detail, creativity, and critical thinking capacity developed over years working in the medical field make me an ideal candidate for the Master’s of Medical Science in Anesthesiologist Assistant program at Emory University. As my life progresses, I have created a desire for a profession that offers a varied assortment of opportunities. I find it gratifying to have a career that is not only rewarding for caring for surgical patients, but also the attraction of a career that is a life long learning process. The attractiveness of a career with different possibilities and education expansion is energizing and motivational.
He would research new prescription drugs in order to have a clear understanding of the usage, side effects, dosage, and interactions they may have.

West Pharmaceutical Services peaks my interest as they do work in the form research and development of medicine delivery systems. They have had years to refine the company from its start in 1923 as it has transitioned from research lab packing penicillin to groundbreaking biomedical product production and testing. I am interested in this company as the various research done at their facilities can supplement my knowledge on the working of various devices within the biomedical industry. Moreover, the company is large enough to allow for personal growth within the company to a high extent as I may grow as a biomedical engineer. I would like to contribute to West’s reliability in creating high-quality and technologically advanced containment and delivery solutions.
As healthcare evolved, so did the tools that were used nurses. In 1844, Francis Rynd invented the first syringe. It was a metal casing with a class insert which would hold the solution of choice. These syringes were generally not disposable.
Medicine has changed over the centuries. At the beginning of the history of medicine, people believe that diseases was a symptom of imbalance in the body as a result of actions of an external agent, such as bad air or demons.

After all, the FDA does not approve ads before being aired on TV or radio, which allows drug companies to promote DTC prescription drug ads before long-term safety information is known about their product. In other words, doctors will be prescribing drugs to patients without knowing future harmful consequences. Take for example, Vioxx. Vioxx was a new aggressive DTC ad in the early 2000s compared to its older competition Ibuprofen. Both being advertised as arthritis and pain reliever, but because of the aggressive DTC ads on Vioxx, it sold 20 million drug prescriptions in 5 years in the market.
JHM’s Strategic Plan Executive Council certainly had these ideas in mind when creating their priorities, goals, and strategies to reach each. Johns Hopkins Medicine (2013) strategic thinking took into consideration health care reform, including an increased need for accountability, transparency and controlling costs, the necessity to maintain stability while creating new responsive structures and honoring their mission of patient care, research and education, all the while emphasizing quality and affordability to meet consumer expectations in a competition driven market. Stakeholders that have influenced this strategic effort consist of employees at all levels, even potential future employees, patients and consumer, payers including state and federal, and the community that they serve, or as a broader whole, humanity. “Success occurs with an organizational strategy that focuses on new processes and services that meet the healthcare and financial needs of the customer while disrupting the status quo” (McLaughlin and Militello, 2015, p.
Introduction The scope of the nursing practice is changing with the improvement of technology. Computer and information technology is just as important to nurses as their stethoscopes, so implementing and using Medical Information Technology (MEDITECH) an Electronic Health Records (EHR) is vital in improving patient care. The importance and knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of EHR systems is brought up throughout this paper. Chilton Hospital and Fairmont General Hospital review their possibilities and limitations about using MEDITECH.
The most famous of all Ancient Greek doctors was Hippocrates. He made such an impression on medical history that his name is still very much associated with medicine today. Greek doctors had started to look at the issue of poor health and disease by using a process of reasoning and observation. The Hippocratic texts deal with all manner of medical topics but can be grouped into the main categories of diagnosis, biology, treatment and general advice for doctors. Another source is the fragmentary texts
This knowledge is useful for nursing practice because it opens up opportunity for new effective treatments for reducing pain. By applying the theoretical knowledge from the study and practical knowledge from clinical practice, the nurse’s way of knowing is informed. As someone working in healthcare, it is important to be able to have an openness to change and be actively looking for evidence informed practice. For instance, health care and nursing practice has greatly changed in 100-200 years. In a video by James McCormack of UBC, he describes the final days of King Charles II.
