I had learned different things in the medical field. I learn how to verify insurance, call in prescription and had a great deal of customer experience by now. I had the endurance to learn anything. I would be placed in front office and back office. I enjoyed back office more dealing with directly assisting the doctor.
Internal medicine physicians with whom I have worked have demonstrated for me the importance of compassionate patient care, a broad understanding of health issues, to take my decisions independently and the ability to treat the whole patient. I am applying to your program because I am confident that it can provide me with what I am looking for in a program - advanced medical technologies, knowledge-driven environment, research opportunities and most importantly diversity in residents, where I get a chance to build life-long friendships with my colleagues. While I know I cannot predict the future, 5 years from now my goal is to continue my training with a cardiology fellowship, though I am willing to consider other fellowships as well depending on my exposure. I truly believe that your program will help me become a fantastic physician. I feel I am ready to work for it and earn it, no matter what specialty I ultimately decide to
Having volunteered with a hospital (Loma Linda Murrieta) that utilized Scribe America scribes, I saw firsthand the expectations and responsibilities of a Scribe America scribe. I also saw how the job was serving as a major stepping stone to many of the scribes overall healthcare career. I want to be a Scribe America scribe firstly because I have seen firsthand what the scribes can do to aid the physicians and what the scribes gained from it, such as strong work relations, education, and experience but also because I have an immense amount of respect for the company. One of the reasons why I have an immense amount of respect for the company is because of the opportunities it provides its scribes, but also because I saw first-hand the treatment the scribes received.
Over the course of the past few years I had the privilege of shadowing Dr. Ghandi M. Saadeh and Dr. Ravi C. Kahatapitiya at Sentara Leigh Hospital. I was able to spend a substantial amount of time with both and I consider each man a great leader and mentor. The medical shadowing experience changed my views not only as a student, but as a person in general. I was taught the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and how to successful build bonds with people both in the office and outside of it. Both continuously conveyed that a patient should be viewed as a friend and each should receive the same level of respect and treatment no matter what the cause is.
Initially, the sights, sounds, smells, and bodily fluids were overwhelming. This was an experience that few teenagers are accustomed too. However, I found that I loved the job for a very simple reason, the connections I made with other people.
During my undergraduate and graduate years, I maintained full-time employment to ensure college remained affordable for my family and I. Hence, my employment experiences have provided me with a great respect for social and ethical views that differ from my own which will allow me work well with others from diverse backgrounds. In addition, my extensive employment history has granted me with the work ethic required to endure the strenuous work schedule of both a medical student and physician. Furthermore, working at the University of Miami Hospital, specifically, has enlightened me about the practicalities of providing direct patient care. Ultimately, being able to work while enrolled full-time in courses has taught me the art of time management; a trait I believe will be essential to my success while in medical
Overall, I was glad that I was given this project to complete because it helped me see what a pediatrician’s day consisted of. It let me see what a pediatrician does, how they do it, and why they do it. If I had another opportunity to job shadow, I would probably do it again.
In addition to my studies, my work in the healthcare field has exposed me to a variety of scenarios. I have worked as a standardized patient at the Medical Education Research Facility helping medical students practice their clinical skills and learn how to empathize with patients by listening to their stories. Much of this stems on skills of communication with the patients, but it also includes setting an agenda for the visit, listening actively to the patient’s own narrative, using empathy to understand the patient’s emotions, and agreeing
This provides valuable job skills, but even more importantly, it provides life skills that will serve CNA students well for the rest of their lives. In addition to the numerous benefits that a student can gain from attending CNA classes, they then have the opportunity to pass their knowledge on as they help individuals who cannot care for themselves. This often sparks a life-long interest in caring for others, and gives people involved in the medical community the opportunity to express their passion for helping people to other CNA
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.
As an aspiring physician in Emergency Medicine, it is hard to describe typical physician workday activities. Every day is unique and filled with many opportunities to learn and develop clinical, interpersonal communication, leadership and critical thinking skills. Despite this, there are certain routine activities which I had the opportunity to observe through my shadowing experience in the Emergency and Operating rooms at California Hospital Medical Center, Los Angeles. One day, a two year old patient came into the ER after falling and cutting her head. The patient’s mother told the physician that her daughter is nervous and scared.
I am pleased to announce the promotion of 8 Physician Assistants to Physician Assistant Coordinator (PAC) roles in the Department of Surgery. The Physician Assistant Coordinator team will have managerial and administrative oversight of the clinical physician assistants within their respective areas, as outlined below, reporting to me. The PACs will collaborate with physicians, nurse practitioners, clinical nurses, and other members of the clinical and administrative teams to achieve the highest standards of patient care and patient experience.
Dr. Bruening allowed me to shadow his practice to understand the daily operations at a busy clinic. Dr. Bruening took the time to explain the different treatment options for various diseases. Dr. Bruening stresses the importance of using conservative treatments before moving on to more invasive techniques. Shadowing in Dr. Bruening's clinic, I have grown an appreciation for the variety of patients seen by Podiatrists from patients suffering from genetic disorders and birth defects to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers and foot
When I first started out in the Medical Assistant program at Central Nine, I was a little scared are hurting the person I was taking blood from. As time went on though, I became much more comfortable and confident when drawing blood on someone. Mrs.Pfeiffer from C9 always told the students that you can worry about the patient when the needle is in them but as soon as the needle comes out, it is about you. I definitely understand why she told us that because if that needle was to accidentally prick you after it was already in the patient, you can run into some serious problems.
