I admire how much knowledge physician assistants obtain throughout their years of schooling since they learn a great amount about many portions of medicine. I always desired to learn as much about science and medicine as I possibly could; therefore, this profession is perfect for me. I also love caring for people and that is what I get to do as a medical professional. My desire to learn and my passion for volunteering and helping others will allow me to be an essential part of the physician assistant profession. I now desire to work in either Infectious Disease, because of the panel, or Orthopedic Surgery, due to my love for working with injuries like breaks, strains, sprains, and tears.
Whether it is a patient who is non-compliant with his hypertensive medications, or someone fighting with the pancreatic cancer, my job as an internist is to help them
I wanted to make something happen that had a more important meaning. Making crafts and helping with my friend’s fair animals was great and I will always love those memories; however, I wanted to make a change. After doing a 4-H project on my family history, I realized that too many people in my life have been taken from me because of one disease: cancer. I knew right away that other people want to make a difference and find a cure to cancer too. This is when I realized I wanted to take all the skills I gained through 4-H and lead my peers in a team through the American Cancer Society Relay for
Do you have a problem with your musculoskeletal system? Have a nagging pain in your knee, or is it hard to sit down and stand because your back has a tremendous amount of pain? Well, get on going to see an orthopedic surgeon. He or she can help the pain go away. Orthopedic surgeons need about 14 years of schooling.
I have realized that this will be difficult, but my duty to help those who are sick and in need is great. I feel like God is calling me towards nursing for a particular reason, that I am not sure about yet. He has given me the spiritual gift of comforting. I feel that through nursing I will be able to show comfort to people in the hospital who need comfort the most. Nursing is a career path that will always have a job opening available.
Now, I know a great deal more on how to become an orthopedic surgeon. It requires different skills, of which the most important ones are how to treat minor injuries, to understand and use medical terms when needed, and to be able to recognize what type of injury the patient has.

This is why I thought reconstructive surgery would be a perfect fit for my personality, since I would be working with burn victims, people born with deformities such as cleft lip, as well as victims of traumatic accidents. Reconstructing a person’s body, especially face, is very important to the patient, because they want the best results to look normal. I would be able to give opportunities to these patients who
“Step away from the blue, son!” Those were the words shouted at me the first time I entered an operating room. The bright lights, shiny equipment, and blue gowns filled me with energy and left me awestruck. My clinical years grew my love for the OR and cemented my passion for a general surgery career. The sophisticated surgical technique, the interprofessional teamwork in the OR, and the immediate alleviation of suffering by our own hands left me enamored with surgery.
Though the term "saving the world" usually equates to a grand gesture, such as preventing world hunger or curing cancer, I think that each of us is able to help save the world by positively impacting those around us (though curing cancer would be amazing). I would certainly aspire to enrich the Gatton community as much as possible and I believe that I have the qualities necessary to do so, the first of which is my accepting nature. I enjoy being around all different types of people and continuously bring those around me together. I am also compassionate; I live my life according to the Golden Rule and I my best to help anyone who is struggling, whether that means doing something as small as helping a classmate with chemistry homework or as important as supporting a friend going through a tough time. Moreover, I am hardworking and organized, which allows me to give back to my community by doing things such as planning study groups and assisting with fundraisers.

I have scrubbed and circulated over 46 demanding surgical cases with zero discrepancies and zero post-operative infections, resulting in 100% customer satisfaction and promoting mission readiness. Supply PO: As the Supply PO for my department, I have been crucial for the sustainment of the hospital’s mission and delivery of quality care.

American actor Christopher Reeve once quoted, "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles" (Brainy Quote). Not only did he play a hero as Superman, he truly became one in his personal life. After becoming a quadriplegic Reeve became a spokesperson for people with spinal cord injuries. A hero is a person one admires because of the qualities and selfless actions they exemplify to overcome adversity and inspire others. Heroism is apparent in literature, history, and in our own life.
The average lifespan in the United States is approximately 78 years. Isn’t it crazy that one singular event that may only last 10-15 minutes can radically change that life? Many people experience these events that cause a dramatic switch in the path of their life. I had one of these life changing events at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on a trip to Washington D.C. when I was in 6th grade.
