I was trained to take panoramic and cephalometric x-rays. Soon after I was trained to work chairside. I moved to Virginia in 2010 and started working at KlarVoorhees Orthodontics. During my first year at KlarVoorhees Orthodontics my employers encouraged me to go back to school because they knew it was a dream of mine.
Each job has provided me with a new perspective in on the field of healthcare. Overall, I have witnessed over 24 surgeries and have seen what it is like behind the scenes to work in a hospital. In addition, my interest motivated me to seek a unique opportunity outside of the Tri-Health program. Anatomy and AP Biology students at my high school were invited to apply to participate in a leg cadaver lab at a local orthopedic surgery center. Fortunately, I was selected and was thrilled to examine the human anatomy with an incredible “hands-on” experience.
The doctor then secured everything gauze and placed a catheter in so the treatments would not be interrupted. The tissue specimens were given to Doctor George Gey, who had been trying to grow malignant cells for research purposes. He wanted to discover what causes cancer and how it can be cured, but had been unsuccessful for several decades. During this time, Gey and his wife had experimented with finding the right culture medium that allowed cells to grow. Once Henrietta’s cells were in the lab, Gey’s assistant cut the specimens into smaller pieces, placed them into test tubes, labeled them HeLa (the first two letters of her first and last name), and carried them to the incubator room.
There is added history since the bones have been to so many places and have been touched by so many people. They are real proof that in order to figure out the mystery behind historical objects you must use history and all of your knowledge. In the text people such as the Porter’s had the bone in the family for many years, and generations. The story starts with Dr. Porter who was a doctor/ physician that
Being the first child to receive a double hand transplant now means anyone can undergo the procedure. The double hand transplant performed on Manu was not as challenging since he has already fully grown. The team had to be very careful when doing Zion’s procedure because of the growth plates in his arm to make sure his arms and hands grow properly. The double hand transplant is a life changing procedure that could possibly open doors for people who thought there was no other
He also impacted society a great deal. Due to Alzheimer’s investigations about Alzheimer disease, people can now go to the hospital with symptoms and with brain scans being down and Alzheimer disease can be diagnosed and treated to the best of the doctor ability. Even though there is no cure doctors can slow down the process of the disease. On the other hand Clara Barton has also made a huge impact on the medical field and society. Barton made an impact on the medical field by jumping in and treating the wounded in war and also by creating the organization called the American Red Cross.
Our teacher split us up into groups and we had to make a presentation about the Middle Ages. The class was small and nobody really knew each other that well. The material was especially hard for most of us to understand because this was the very first AP class we had taken and we were not yet acclimated to the level of difficulty the class possessed. It took a long time for us to get used to the complex wording of the textbook, but eventually we were able to finish our presentation. Creating conference calls on skype was extremely useful because it allowed us to work on our presentation outside of school.
Oral Surgeons generally pick their own hours and have a low pressure atmosphere, because most of the operations Oral Surgeons conduct are generally not extreme. My father and grandfather are both Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons. As a small child I remember visiting my dad in his office and he showed me a tooth he had just pulled out. I thought it was great, and I remember going home and preforming surgery on all of my stuffed animals. I have since gotten older, and changed in many ways, however, my desire to become an Oral Surgeon like my dad has not changed.
In Meg Wolitzer 's Belzhar, five students embark on the journey of a lifetime. Little did any of them know that their life changing adventure would begin in English class. Much like Sylvia Plath, the students Mark, Casey, Jam, Griffin and Sierra are isolated. However, unlike Plath, the students went to The Wooden Barn, they did not have access to technology, and they turned to each other instead of suicide to work through their problems and heal in more ways than they could have ever imagined. All five students in the Special Topics in English class faced problems that some, including me, could not even imagine living with…besides rejection, it is only a matter of time, right?
When I was 15, I had scoliosis surgery to fix my two curves in my spine. Through my experience of having surgery and the nurses that took care of me while I was in the hospital for a week, and the bonded I formed with was what inspired me to be nurse. Also, through my school in a our Health Science Program I got the privilege to go to a hospital every other morning and shadow nurse and doctors. I believe my will to do anything for my patients for them to get better would make me a successful nurse, and I want to form bonds with my patients like my nurse did with me while I was recovering from surgery.
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.
The volunteering offers you to be able to help students in developing their social and learning skills. These students at Hope Academy all have disabilities and taking extra time out of your day will help them develop learning skills and also help them become more sociable. From all the information given about Hope Academy I knew what to expect as soon as I walked in. To be honest I actually got more than what I expected from volunteering there, the students actually taught me something. While volunteering you can tell that everyone there loves their job and enjoys every bit of developing the students.
His response was radiology tech. I liked the idea because the program is a part of the medical field and the fact that the human structure is interesting to me. I have never seen or know anybody who is a radiology tech, but have heard that it is a great career. In that case, I do not know exactly what a radiology tech does, besides the fact they take x-rays of the human body. That all changed when I had the chance to observe a radiology technologist named Doctor Kit and when I watched a video by CareerRx, both were on Youtube.
Thankfully, my lengthy preparations for a dental profession were not for naught though, as last year my internal flame for professional dentistry was truly alit by a local Omaha dentist. Shadowing Dr. Beninato, was shadowing experience unlike any other that I had previously witnessed. With preconceived notions and minor experience biasing me away from general dentistry, watching Dr. Beninato manipulate equipment and materials to artfully reconstruction entire sets of teeth utilizing full arch implantation supported bridges triggered a personal epiphany. There I sat watching a master of the dental art, whose occupation as a simple general dentist, unlike the restricted path of orthodontics, had enabled him to elect out of a large array of options, and become highly specialized in fields of interest uniquely his own. Additionally, complementing the ability to specialize, I would come to realize general dentistry possessed an equally important aspect that I adore, the joy and skill of working and building with ones hands, at a level woefully unmatched by the manual dexterity required of
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. My heart is 100% in this. When times get difficult, the person must become stronger. That is something I feel I have been able to do. These past few years my family has struggled with finding out my father had a brain tumor that had to be removed as soon as possible.
