So they are mostly in labs. General practitioners diagnose, treat, and help prevent diseases that commonly occur in general population. So they have more interaction with patients. And an athletic trainer evaluate athlete’s readiness to play and provide participation clearances when necessary and warranted.

According to the article “Letting Doctors Make the Tough Decisions” by Pauline W. Chen, this story talk about how difficult to make a medical decision between doctor and their patients. Back to 50 years ago, doctors are receive a duty to make a decisions for their patient.

First thing that shows the difference is doctor respect for their patients lead to patient-centered care. Besides, doctors also respect for a person’s autonomy by letting the patient make their own decisions. Nowadays, doctor will be trained to stop ourselves from making a decision for patients. However,
Nurses act as the messengers between patients and doctors. They also act as messengers for physicians when they can not be present. The nurses are the ones caring for patients, and taking all that information to the doctor, then if the doctor orders an ultrasound, the nurse then takes that information to the patient. After consulting the patient, the nurse would put in the order and ensure that the ultrasound was scheduled (and took place if within a hospital).

Throughout college, I shadowed many physician assistants and physicians and found that physician assistants have the flexibility to rotate across specialties. Since I was young, I always wanted to be a medical doctor. I would listen to my dad speak about his career, and he was always so animated when he spoke about his patients and the relationships he developed over the years. I would want that connection with my patients. However, the medical field is changing drastically, and I do not feel that doctors are able to develop these relationships as liberally.
Doctors and physicians have more and better knowledge than normal people about human body and they are able to assist their patients while making tough decisions. However, they can not always make the right decision. Doctors can not predict the result of a surgery or a treatment and they do not have enough confidence of the result because sometimes the surgery could go in a way they didn’t expect. Although patients have the right to decide their treatments, doctors and patients should share
PERSONAL STATEMENT FOR INTERNAL MEDICINE CLINICAL ROTATION The physician should look upon the patient as a besieged city and try to rescue him with every means that art and science place at his command (Alexander of Tralles). My decision to enter internal medicine as the next part of my venue responds to several driving forces. Besides deciphering the wonders of the human body, I know how important is to deal with the prevention, diseases detection, and treatment of adult illnesses.
Science provides a wealth of knowledge that can be tapped to enhance the provision of healthcare in the world. Science and healthcare are closely interconnected and there is need to come up with measures that enhance the positive use of science in the healthcare setting. Healthcare personnel are trained using scientific methods, and day to day operations at healthcare facilities are based on science. Treatment plans such as different medicines, surgery and laboratory procedures are all based on scientific methods. However, if not used properly, science can also create problems to healthcare provision.
