It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mr. Zafar Anwar. I have had the pleasure of viewing Mr. Anwar’s professional development over the past two years, and I can state with confidence that he is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity. As such, I expect that he will be a very positive addition to your institution. As an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner in the Cardiothoracic ICU at Maimonides Medical Center, I feel that I know Mr. Anwar quite well. Our CTICU fosters nurses to be autonomous and have an active role in the patient’s care plan.
When my parents and grandmother reached the hospital, the doctors had already taken Ben back to begin surgery. A few hours later the surgery was a success and my brother had survived. The doctors had begun to relieve my family with a therapist. They reminded us how lucky we were that Ben was alive because if he didn’t reach the hospital within a certain time frame then we would have lost him and I would have lost my older brother and our lives would have been changed forever. After I graduate I plan on going into the nursing program and getting my Bachelors as an RN.
The Fantastic Voyage Growing up the human body always fascinated me and it is no surprise that I decided early on that a career in the medical field was my true calling in life. Upon graduating high school, I joined the U.S. Navy and chose Hospital Corpsman as a beginning path of study. I knew it would expand my studies and knowledge of the human body and in particular Anatomy and Physiology and The Immune System. I had no idea that it would eventually propel me to the tip of the spear in medical research. The seven years of clinical work and extensive study under the best and brightest doctors the U.S. Navy had to offer fed my hunger to not only learn as much as I could about the human body and immunology but it also sparked a desire to use that knowledge to change the way we understand the process in which our body fights off disease and infection.
Camille had to undergo yet another surgery in the summer of 2016, and Quentin was again able to see how different her life would have been without the help of physical therapy. He witnessed her go from not being able to walk, to being on crutches, to finally being able to jog a year later. He explained to me how grateful Camille was for all the help she had received from her physical therapist over the course of this year, and he told me that that was the reason why he wants to become a physical therapist when he grows up.

My role as a patient advisor with Kaiser Permanente began in 2010 after the birth of my daughter. I was induced and spent 6 days in the hospital and during that time my family and I experienced wide fluctuations in the level of care and communication provided by the various healthcare professionals attending to us. At the end of my stay, I shared my observations and perception of the labor & delivery and postpartum hospital experience with the department administrator and ombudsman. Upon providing my feedback I was impressed with the reception I received. My input was welcomed and embraced.
But the bullet 's missing my heart, the skill of the doctors and nurses at George Washington University Hospital and the steadfast support of my wife, Nancy, saved my life. Jim Brady, my press secretary, who was standing next to me, wasn 't as lucky. A bullet entered the left side of his forehead, near his eye, and passed through the right side of his brain before it exited. The skills of the George Washington University medical team, plus his amazing determination and the grit and spirit of his wife, Sarah, pulled Jim through. His recovery has been remarkable, but he still lives
For over fifteen years I have enjoyed being an LPN. Working in nursing homes taught me to how to patience and how to use my knowledge to help my patients to the best of my ability. My time as an alcohol and drug rehabilitation nurse helped me to appreciate the courage it takes to admit to a problem, ask for help and the strength it takes to work to get better. Working in a hospital taught me to how to work in a fast paced setting while keeping my sanity intact.

What Motivates Me to Pursue a Career in Medicine and What Attracts me to the UMKC six year Medical Program? My main motivation towards pursuing a career in medicine is my friend Russel who suffers from a severe medical condition that requires chemotherapy and home treatment regimens. I have been his bestfriend since kindergarten and, as such, I always accompany him whenever possible when he goes to the hospital for treatment or help him in whatever way that I can at home or at school. It is this constant exposure to the field of medicine as well as my desire to help my friend in overcoming his disease that initially motivated me towards a career as a doctor (Paolino 14). Admittedly, when I first thought about pursuing this type of career, I had no idea of
The summer of 2016, I was lucky enough to volunteer at Dr. Leonid Tafler 's private practive of Family Medicine. Dr. Tafler is a DO physician, who performs osteopathic manipulation under anesthesia. He has been involved in research with this practice of manipulation under anesthesia, and has had many positive results; most of his patients report decreased, or no pain at all after this procedure. Being in Dr. Tafler 's office, I not only saw first hand how using one 's own body to heal themselves can be extremely beneficial, but I also saw how a DO physician treats their patients. Dr. Tafler was very kind to his patients, as well as culturally competent.
I work in the health care field ethically and morally we are to do the right thing by are patients for them to progress and meet all therapy goals. Our company is a beacon in the community and a lot of our patient have been coming in for physical therapy for ten plus years.

However, he and his mom were being abused by his step father, he finally talked to me and it broke my heart to know that this innocent kid was dealing with such a traumatizing situation.
Keck Medical Center of USC is a world-class health care facility because every staff member shares a commitment to achieving clinical excellence. I have made it my personal mission to provide compassionate care, alleviate suffering, and impart kindness in every interaction by living each day with integrity, passion, and dedication. In order to achieve just that, we as healthcare providers have an obligation to continually research the best, most effective interventions. I truly have a passion for the research process and served as a Research Assistant in the Social Psychology Laboratory at UCSB. In addition, I recently was able to conduct a quality improvement initiative during my Leadership clinical rotation, where I collected, analyzed, and synthesized hospital data in order to identify key areas in which cost-effective changes in the current stroke protocol would lead to improvements in patient
