I had a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome that caused hip capsulitis and an unrelated issue of iliopsoas bursitis. I had finally received closure about what was torturing me for the past two years. I was left with a sudden feeling of relief; I could finally return to the runner I once was, and the runner I wanted to be. However, because of the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, I had to begin to go to several different appointments about my heart, for I even found out that I have a heart disease. The appointment with Dr. Lavallee has left a permanent memory of the WellSpan Orthopedic’s doctors office because it was the first glimmer of hope I had through the process of developing a diagnosis for my incomprehensible hip pain, for I will always have an intimate bond with the simultaneously cluttered yet simple doctor’s

APTA vision statement for physical therapy “transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience” is an important component that can contribute to the quality of life for all people. I do believe that making the best use of movement can improve one's human experience. The human body is made up of joints and tendons that had evolved to help humans achieve movement. The human body is designed with the ability of movement, no matter how small. Optimizing this ability should help transform society.
The experiences on my path to a career in medicine have made me want to make a real, tangible difference in the lives of those around me – a difference that leaves my patients in a better condition than they were in before I met them. My father taught me that medicine that cares, cures, helps, and heals is of greater import than medicine that simply makes a diagnosis and prescribes a medication. I hope that one day, I will become a provider of the type of medicine that treats not only the body, but also the mind and
During the FNP III rotation, the student has seen many patients who have complex chronic illnesses than other two rotations that she completed for the FNP I and FNP II courses. The student had many opportunities to independently interview and exam the patients, then come up with differential diagnoses and treatment plan based on the pertinent and impertinent information and evidence-based practice. The preceptor, Dr. Jeanne-Elyse Cedeno, a medical physician/owner of the clinical site, always encouraged the student to think as a primary care provider in many ways. In this paper, the student is going to discuss the progress of the eight objectives (see Appendix A for details), discuss her personal growth and development in the nurse practitioner role, provide the information on what she learned in the clinical that will be valuable to her future practice, and describe any missed opportunities that she did not get out of this experiences as expected, discuss for areas of improvement in the future clinical rotation, and the summarize the final evaluation with her preceptor.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life. Junior year of high school, I had decided to become a Physical Therapist. I really wanted to be a part of this profession because I had
In the past 18 months, I have continued to shadow various physicians across a variety of specialties that serve different communities. Each time, I am amazed at their ability to heal patients with various ailments. This sense of wonder leaves me wanting to learn more and motivates me to eventually become a physician that has the ability to heal all of these patients as well. In addition, I have shadowed physicians for their full twelve-hour shifts, so I have seen all of the aspects of the career. Though there may be some less desirable aspects, such as the required time spent completing charts, I realize the importance of it. Through these shadowing experiences, I can be assured that I am making an informed decision and pursuing a career that
Beatty, I have pursued relevant experience to prepare me for this career path. While boxing has taught me discipline and confidence, my physical therapist aide job has provided me with hands-on experience working with patients. With these experiences under my belt, I am ready for the next step on my path to medical school, then ultimately to become a Physiatrist. I can truly say that I will be successful in helping others with their conditions and continually learn from my mistakes along the process. This was all I needed to erase doubt, satisfy my desire and keep my mind focused on proceeding in my career

At the same time, my desire to work directly with people and be able to make a positive and lasting change to their lives by empowering them and helping discover their strengths and confidence in themselves to achieve their goals, led me to a realization that a career in occupational therapy would be a perfect fit for me.
It is difficult to describe my entire experience with osteopathic medicine, as it has played a large part in who I am. Throughout my life, I have lived and participated in the osteopathic community. From physician father to physician friends or from my own personal family doctor, I have been exposed to the osteopathic physician. I have spent time in an osteopathic clinic. I have worked with the disabled. Even though, I have volunteered for many individuals and organizations, one of my most memorable activity was as a young girl, supporting the elderly in an assisted living home. I adopted the elderly and spent hours encouraging them. My exposure goes back to my childhood.

Since a child I was always held responsible for attending doctor 's appointments with my parents due to their language barrier. Surprisingly, I never felt that responsibility as a burden because hospitals intrigued me. The polar emotions of safety and fear simultaneously, fascinated me. With this awareness when I began taking science courses at North Shore Community College, I found that the subject also fascinated me. The components of liking the hospital and material, had led me to the realization that I had a calling for the medical field.
