I want to join Phi Delta Epsilon because it would provide me the chance to build lifelong connections and gain networking opportunities. Most importantly, I see myself forming a bond with other members, studying and sharing memories of what it’s like to be a premedical student at UMass Boston. The ability to connect, strive for success and learning from others with the same goal to attend medical school is what I’m truly seeking as a hopeful applicant of PhiDE. Joining the fraternity is the beginning phase of my strenuous road to become a successful physician.
Ever since grade school, I was passionate about working in the field of medicine, and science. I enjoyed anatomy, medical spelling and terminology, and reading about the healthcare industry. Because of my passion for healthcare, I decided to to attend Health Sciences High. There, I was given the best opportunities, such as, medical internships and college health courses. My plans and goals had turned me into a mature young adult. Now that I have my mind set on my aspirations, I hope to practice the qualities needed to be a triumphant dentist and dental surgeon. Of course everyone wants success, wealth, and happiness in the future. My long term goal is to pursue a career in the field of dentistry and earn my DDS (doctorate in dental surgery)
When I was thirteen years old, I knew I wanted to go into the medical field. Personally, I felt that that was my passion: to help people. Last year, while I was looking at the course catalog, I saw the words Ethics: Law, Business, and Medicine. Once I saw “medicine,”
I began my undergraduate education at Colorado State University in 2004. I declared my major as Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. At this point in my life, I had no clue what I wanted to do for my career and thought this would be the best option and give me the most diversity of career options. Going into my sophomore year, I began a job in the emergency department at the hospital located in the college town. During my first day, I got to see a variety of emergent and non-emergent medical procedures. The level of care that the varying healthcare professionals provided to these patients was fascinating and became intrigued to a career path in the medical field. Over the next couple of years, I narrowed the possibility
It was difficult getting to where I am currently with trying to understand who I was? And who I am? Why I was going through what I was going through? How to understand and interpret what felt almost alien. It wasn’t until after getting into the University of South Carolina as a Biology major that I knew that that wasn’t what I was meant to be doing. But before I realized that wasn’t for me, I looked into, after undergrad and medical school, becoming a neonatal physician and again the more I thought about it the less confident I was going that route. What I did know was that while I may not have wanted to work in that specific profession, I did want to work with children, families, women and girls, and the underprivileged. So after taking the
I have worked with medical students who come from the UA COM-P culture and I believe they bring a great amount of cultural awareness to their role on the healthcare team. The focus of early clinical exposure at UA COM-P makes a significant difference in learning how to care for people. The UA COM-P emphasis on cultural diversity allows for more learning opportunities and fully encompasses what it means to take care of the patient and not just treat a disease. I entered the medical field wanting to be at the bedside helping people. I think this gives me a unique view, and ability to help contribute to UA COM-P diversity centered training and culture. Being at the bedside for 40 plus hours a week for almost 4 years I've learned that all
Holding a diploma in my hands and going to college has been one of my dearest dreams; I have always believed in reaching my maximum potential and dreamed numerous times of being able to go to medical school, study, help and lead my community through the medical field. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to become a doctor, I have always been amazed and feel an immense interest in learning specifically about biology and medicine; I feel a serious motivation towards understanding how the human body works; each organ, tissue and every cell interests me; I desire to learn and understand how the diseases manifest, how to diagnose and master each technique to treat them;I am extremely committed to my education and to reaching my goal which is to become a doctor.
Darcy White a wife and a mother is a nurse assistant at the Franklin Memorial Hospital and has worked there for over 15 years right out of college. As I was interviewing my mother she seemed very busy worrying about my brother’s doing homework, folding laundry and trying to pick from supper before that. Darcy seemed to me to be a hard working mother with a lot of responsibility, when I interviewed her and we were talking about college it seemed as though is was only a brief and small part of her life.
Growing up as a young girl I was always told that my attitude was perfect for me to become a lawyer – I never lost an argument. I took the advice and I ran with it. I boasted about becoming a lawyer. I started to research the various types of lawyers, their median salaries and the amount of years it would take me in school and to advance in my practice. Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field.
Social imagination is the false creation of understanding of their social position and allow an individual to think broader from the everyday routine and construct of societies workings. It promotes a sense of awareness and possibility in an individual “gauge her own fate only by locating herself within her period, that she can know her own chances in life only by becoming aware” (Mills). Sociological imagination allows us to correlate interpersonal interactions with our environment in order to understand the on impact our life experience. with the There is a path followed in response to what and individual experiences that will lead to a certain social outcome. I have grown in two separate communities both somewhat distant from each other
Just when you think life is going to go in the right direction for once there will be more curve balls thrown your way than you think you can handle. When this summer started I only had intentions on interning at Little Falls Hospital with an Anesthesiologist. When school was let out I was able to see my friends. By the end of the summer I hadn’t gotten to see any of my friends. I had an opportunity to take a Certified Nursing Assistant course and take the stair step way to becoming a doctor. I completed the Nursing Assistant course with flying colors, but had to push back my internship an entire month. Once I finally completed my certification I was able to finally to start my internship. The first day I walked into my internship I was ecstatic
It is hard for me to toot my own horn but I believe I am exceptional because, in addition to the usual applicant assets of intelligence, aptitude, drive, and experience, I seek and embody diversity, I am highly empathetic and sensitive to the needs of others, I am an Eagle Scout who embodies Scouting’s values, I have significant clinical experience, and I speak fluent Japanese. On the above, I do not just talk the talk, I walk the walk.
People have a personal potential to live up to and standards to live by, but everyones’ differs. Deep down, I know I have a high potential to find a career in the health field and become successful at it. I, along with other people, know that I set high standards for myself because of the potential that I hold. The health field attracted me due to its nurturing nature in taking care of others and logical thinking with problem solving. My existential and pragmatistic mind has inspired me to pursue a career in cardiac rehabilitation.
As an asthmatic child, I used to wake up wheezing at the dead of night. Upon hearing my emphatic coughing and gasps for breath, either my father or mother would always bring me to the same desk with the same antiquated nebulizer. While sitting quietly at that desk for 45 minutes was not an enjoyable experience, it was a subconsciously influencing one. If there is anything that I remember about the nebulizer that had save my life a countless number of times, it would be the words “Johns Hopkins University” that were etched in its outdated exterior. Growing up, the medical environment had always been prevalent in my life due to my father’s occupation as a physician. I had spent long summer afternoons running around my father’s clinic with my brother and sister, watched engaging family dinners get interrupted by my
One of my future goals and the most important one is to become a doctor. It is my life dream, and the only thing I am seeking for. Doctor is someone capable to save and help others life in ways that are not possible in other careers. Being a doctor for me is not just like any job, it is achieving a dream I have since I was 6 years old. One of the main reasons I picked this major is my family; my family members are almost all doctors, and my dad too. I have been growing up seeing my dad as a doctor, and he really loves his job, so automatically I got it from him. Many people pick this major to make money, but my dad always says, “This job is not for making money as much to help people and save their lives”. He taught me that people don’t have to pay to check their health, if they are not able to pay it is not a problem, you do your job as you should do and he always say if you care about money in this career, you won’t be successful at it. That is how I initially begun picking this major.
