The reasoning behind General DeWitt for this command was because the Japanese race was an “enemy” (p.346). However, with so much discrimination against all Asian Americans, they still persevered and it is inspiring to see how individuals such as the Chinese Americans still motivated their children to gain an education. This strength and bravery can also be seen in literary works such as Edith Maud Eaton’s, “In the Land of the Free”, and in Chien-Chi Chang’s artistic work such as his portfolio, “USA. 1990s. New York’s Chinatown”.
My first comprehensive exposure to the health care field was six years ago as a senior, during which time I participated in hospital-based schooling. This program allowed me to observe a multitude of different medical disciplines, with rotations in surgery, orthopedics, nutrition, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, administrative services, and many more. Three out of the five school days were dedicated solely to shadowing, and the other two were spent in the classroom learning various medical-centric studies. Once in college, I continued to shadow physicians whenever my class scheduled permitted. I participated in the 4-U Mentorship program, which paired me with a fourth-year medical student who was preparing to do his residency in general
Through the third-riding time I have accumulated, I have seen a few gruesome encounters such as motor vehicle accidents as well as many different traumas. I have been lucky to be able to go through the health occupations curriculum at my high school and attain my Certified Nursing Assistant certification as well as my healthcare provider, CPR/AED and First Aid certifications. I also received clinical experience through Lawrence General Hospital in the Emergency Center, during my time there my love for medicine grew tremendously and fed my ambition not only for high school, but for college and my future as well. I find comfort in helping anyone and creating a better situation for them if someone is going through a hard time, as I did when I was younger with my great grandparents. Knowing how much a medical hardship can affect someone makes me want to help that much more.
While working full- time as a technician, I attended college and quickly took all the needed courses to apply into a nursing program. I was attending college and had a full time job. Having both challenged and excited me, since I was one step closer to having my career; just as I promised my grandmother. I finally got accepted into nursing school, graduated, and became a Registered Nurse. Every single patient I cared for, I used my past experience with my family, and used that as my foundation for my bedside manner.
However Horace did not merely save lives. He supported Korea and helped Korea in their rough times. Horace pursuaded me to be a doctor,for he showed me that doctors not only save lives but can do much more. I want to be a doctor like Horace, a doctor who does more than saving lives at a hospital. I dream of being a doctor who could helping those in needs with medicine and other skills I posses.
Although, these are individual clubs, there is one unified goal of helping the community, and in helping out as many people possible. This motive helped me encourage my future plans as a physician. These clubs have taught me a great deal, but going to animal shelters, and hospitals to volunteer on my own time have showed me the true meaning of helping others and how fortunate I am compared to some situations people have unfortunately been put in. Helping people shaped me into a strong independent person. I am fortunate enough to give time to help others, and to better my future self.
Berkmar High School is one of the most diverse schools in Gwinnett County. Its demographics are primarily minorities, which means every student has their own distinctive culture, religion, and ethnic background. I am grateful to be apart of such a unique community because it has exposed me to the differences of the world. Attending Berkmar for almost four years now has allowed me to interact with different students, each with their own unique backgrounds. This exposure has helped me to develop an understanding and respect for differences ideals which helped me evolve as a person.
Overall, on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday has been quite experiential learning about the symptoms and diagnoses of the last 23 patients. Many of which have been through so much and experienced much pain and despair. But, Dr. Katzenberg bring these patients much relief and a sense of hope back in their life. Dr. Katzenberg illustrated much expertise during my clinical shadowing experience, one technique I noticed from the cardiologist was his effective speech craft toward his patients; he demonstrated excellent skills regarding meaningful patterns of information. He was able to ask questions in a certain pattern to gather information effectively.
The thing I did best today, was, communicating with my patient, and doing his physical assessment. My clinical rotation this quarter for Galen College of Nursing ,is at the VA medical center, in Louisville Ky. The VA medical center is a govt hospital for the veterans. My clinical group and I, are working on the medical surgical/telemetry floor. I had to sit out of classes last quarter, so I was a little nervous about getting back into things.
I believe in people. It is this belief that drives my courage and confidence in a world of cynicism and doubt. I know that ultimately, humans strive for belonging and community; thus, while loneliness and anger may always be in existence, so will togetherness and bliss. In this small nation of mine, people speak at least two languages and in addition to the English language, I have experienced the beauty of the Malay traditional tales, Chinese dragons, and Indian cuisines through years of golden rich and poor multiracial friends, stories, and cultural events, ranging from the Islamic Eid Al-Fitr to the graceful moves of Bollywood dances. Yes, I am proud to have listened to stories from all walks of life, tales of traditions.
I knew that I wanted to be a doctor since early high school. Experience in a hospital and clinic setting, both personal and professional, have given me many reasons to pursue medicine. Through these viewpoints, I have gained an understanding of patient hardships like financial and travel issues, the grief associated with loss, and the trust that accompanies putting yourself or a loved one into the hands of physicians. These experiences have built empathy and compassion in me that is necessary in medicine. As a patient, I prefer a physician to be knowledgeable on new medical information.
Throughout high school I have participated in many different activities and programs, but one of the opportunities I was given I will carry with me forever. As a junior at River Valley I participated in the Marion General Teen Volunteer Program. After interviewing and being placed in the physical therapy unit I took the opportunity to branch out into other areas of the hospital. I soon made my way to the labor and delivery floor where everyday a miracle happened. My duties while volunteering included assisting the nurses during hearing checks, changing diapers, and rocking crying infants in special care.
As a formal introduction to medicine, I was diagnosed and treated for chronic asthma at the age of four. My diagnosis led to frequent hospital visits and kept my parents on the verge of insanity as they lacked the understanding of my recurrent asthma attacks. My diagnosis led to both good and bad results, I was forever marked with being considered an asthmatic patient however; the respiratory defect has ultimately stimulated my interest in medicine. My experience with the community and as a leader during my undergraduate years serves for the advantage of IMPACT. I have served as regular volunteer of the Canton community revolving around inner city families, particularly homeless families promoting the importance of nutrition and the components of well-being and I have served as a mentor for three years teaching basic concepts of biological sciences.
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
I have volunteered at my hometown 's hospital, Los Robles for 4 years now as a floater and ER volunteer. As a floater, I would go around the hospital doing various tasks and in the ER I would have to check in patients and monitor them and their families. At my university, I have volunteered at the Veterans Home. Currently, I am the secretary of my university 's AMSA
