After high school, a minimum of fourteen years of post-secondary education is required. Because this amount of time can be intimidating, a person must be very serious before committing to pursuing a career as an orthopedic surgeon. On many occasions, my father has said to me, “Why half do something? If you are going to do something, shouldn’t you give it all you have?” This is why I will not settle to be just an orthopedic surgeon, but I will strive to be the best orthopedic surgeon possible. Philip Stahel, an orthopedic trauma surgeon for ten years, gives tips in his book, Blood, Sweat, & Tears: Becoming a Better Surgeon, on how to become the best possible surgeon.

Portrait of Dr. Samuel D. Gross (The Gross Clinic) The Gross Clinic is a painting by American artist Thomas Eakins. Based in a Jefferson Medical College surgical amphitheater, world famous surgeon Dr. Samuel Gross can be seen performing a surgery on the thigh of an unknown patient. Gross, along with some colleagues, was demonstrating to a class his newly developed procedure that helped to treat bone infections.

The patient in the painting is being treated for osteomyelitis of the femur, which would have resulted in an amputation in any other century before.
The patients came into the campus infirmary worried about their symptoms. Each patient has agreed to testing except for Arnie. The patients have similar symptoms but the symptoms were presented in a different way.

It involves the removal of a foley catheter and an IV.tubing on my patient which was due according to the protocol of the hospital.Although my primary nurses wanted to carry out the procedure with me assisting her,my instructor suggest that I do it while she supervises me since it was my first time. I was quite excited to learn and acquire this new squill that I forgot to prepare adequately for it.

November 21, 2003: The sound of a siren wailing, racing toward the hospital in order to transfer my immobilized body, weak and frail, to the University of California, San Francisco. On arrival to UCSF I had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a type of cancer that attacks the white blood cells in the bone marrow. Thankfully the cancer was discovered rather quickly which prevented it from spreading to other parts of the body; however, I had to endure the long five years of chemotherapy. The chemotherapy included taking countless pills that would cause me to be bald, emotional, and produce warts on my fingers. The weeks not spent in the hospital were mostly spent at school, where I was marked as “different” or “not normal” because of the side effects of the medication.
After nearly losing my eye, nearly having my veins and arteries give out, and watching my father become unresponsive, I knew that I wanted to go into the medical field. This became a part of my very being, I strove and strive to learn as much about first aid and treatments as I am able. As it came time for me to think on a career path I was forced to think about the logistics of college pricing and efficiency; I decided on going through an EMT course, attempting to get a job to pay for the rest of my schooling as a nurse or search and rescue
a. One situation that I was able to utilize developmentally-appropriate techniques to deliver quality care was when I was performing my assessment. I made sure to tell the patient what I was doing, as well as bent down during the assessment so that I wasn’t towering over him. I also pressed buttons on his toy to interact with him. Even though I did those things, I was nervous for this assessment, so I feel like I could have done more with using different techniques.
The child’s presenting history, physical symptoms, and laboratory findings should have indicated that appropriate, standard CT imaging of the abdomen, emergency surgical consultation and immediate hospitalization, due to his critical condition, were paramount. Due to the misdiagnosis of constipation, four hours after discharge, Roberto Carlos Llanas, Jr. was dead. “Had Roberto been properly diagnosed and treated when he first went to the ER at Children’s Medical Center, in all likelihood he could have been treated appropriately for internal trauma and lived to have a normal life. His life is gone, and that of his family has been destroyed,” Weisbrod said. “Roberto’s doctor and nurses simply were not thorough or paying attention to
The decline in my GPA made me realize that my journey to becoming a doctor is not always going to be easy. It made me hunger to go to medical school even more, to overcome the academic and emotional hurdles, and has made every little accomplishment even sweeter. In elementary school, I desired to become a teacher and a pastor, in sixth grade I needed to become a painter like Picasso, but when seventh grade came along all that changed. I watched
However, if symptoms are more severe than braces, physical therapy or reconstructive surgery is considered (Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, 2013).
