The use of health informatics will allow the medical researchers to determine the effectiveness of a particular treatment for a given population in the discovery of harmful effects of drugs. For a long time in the history of medicine, the concern and focus has always been on developing new drugs, and little attention was being given to other areas of improvement of the current medicine. The use of digital technology to profile the disease-causing organisms has made it easy for cross references to be carried out by other researchers; this has been instrumental in managing the research information on medicine and their
I am interested in serving on SHAB because I have a passion for healthcare and serving others. As a Health Science major on the Pre-PA track, I want to educate myself holistically on healthcare issues to better myself, and thus the community. I did not know of the services and resources the SHCC has when I first arrived on campus, and feel that in serving on the board, I can eliminate this lack of knowledge to incoming students and current students to promote a healthier and safer university community. I would like to give back to the my community, become more involved on campus, learn about the healthcare field, collaborate with others, and challenge myself, and feel that SHAB is a great opportunity to do so. A value that I would bring to SHAB would be respect.
Nursing is a hard profession; as well as, a very rewarding profession. Nursing is not only the skills you learn in school, such as, putting in an IV, pathophysiology or assessment of the patient, but it also requires empathy and compassion. This career is not for everyone. What persuaded me to become a nurse is when I was four years old I was diagnosed with Leukemia ALL, this changed my life for the next three years, while I was getting treatment for my cancer. I would be around nurses and doctors twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week during this time.
Murray is not arguing that the four year degree is completely useless for everyone, instead he insists that the four year degree works for people who want to get a liberal arts education. He claims that students who want a liberal arts education are the minority. Murray asserts that the best way to prove a worker is competent for a job is by “treating post-secondary education as apprenticeships for everyone” (Murray 8). My goal in my life is to become a clinical geneticist. In order to become a clinical geneticist, I will have to obtain my four year degree in a biological science, attend medical school for four years, and then finish a six year residency.
I am a twenty-three year old mother, full-time student and wife. I have come a long way since my high school years, from a period of inner conflict and lack of motivation to recently receiving an acceptance letter into a very competitive sonography program at the University of Texas School of Health Professions in Houston Texas. I have come to this program to start a career in the field I have always dreamed of being a part of, a dream that began when I was a child playing nurse. Although my interest in the medical field began with nursing, life has taken men through a path that lead me to sonography. Sonography caught my interest at sixteen when I needed a breast exam to diagnose whether I had breast cancer or not and it grew exponentially
Besides the school aspect, I also want to participate in numerous extracurricular activities offered. My main goal is to study and research registered nursing at IUPUI, but one day I hope to become a pediatric oncologist nurse. When I was younger I was eager to help my dad with his insulin shots. I always wanted to make sure that
According to an article done by Study.com you must take biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology and physics to achieve this degree. These classes are not only essential to getting into medical school but also to help with the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). The MCAT is a test that shows how much you know about the medical field and if you are “smart” enough for medical school. All my college life will be is taking any opportunity I can to get above everyone else. Medical school is very competitive so I will need a close to perfect GPA with a great MCAT score.
Pediatricians are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating children aged from 0 to 21. In order to be a licensed pediatrician, you will need to do the Medical College Admission Test, or the MCAT during your high school years to get into a medical school in Canada to receive a MD degree. After graduating the medical school, 4 years of Royal College of physicians and surgeons of canada-approved residency in pediatric is required, including management of hospitalized and ambulatory patients, and appropriate experience in pediatric subspecialities such as pediatric cardiology and/or pediatric neurology. During your 4-year residency training, you will be working in a hospital or a clinic to refine your skills learned in medical schools. American Board of Pediatric Examinations and Royal College Pediatric Exams will be taken within these 4 years and if you pass both examinations, you will receive your pediatric certificate.
By the time I got to college my confidence grew and I knew I wanted to pursue medicine. 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
By taking Cell Biology, it not only will provide me with a base level understanding of the foundation of life, but it will also teach me how to further analyze that information and project it into more complex concepts in my world. My major career goal is to be a physician, but before I can accomplish that I have to go to med school, and, without the core fundamentals of life that is taught in Cell Biology, I would have a hard time fully grasping the “why” and “how” of further and more complex processes and concepts that I will have to learn. When it comes to Science courses, my strengths include being detailed oriented, being well organized with assignments and notes, having a photographic memory that easily recalls information once studied, and putting in a great amount of effort because I have a true love for science. However, I am not perfect and I have weaknesses well, which include not always asking for help when I need it, getting hard on myself for not doing well/understanding a certain concept, and waiting for the last couple of days before a test to study. When preparing/studying for an exam, I have a routine that I typically follow.
I attended medical forums held by medical schools, I had conversations with medical professionals, and I did my research. Coming closer to graduation I came to the realization that I did not want to spend multiple years in school before I can begin my career. I simply did not have the patience. I shared this thought with a Physicians Assistant at my doctor’s office, who recommended I pursue that path in life. I also spoke to my school nurse, a LPN, who recommended that I take the nursing route but to still pursue my M.D.
To bring it back to present day, I am currently an undergraduate student working towards my bachelors in Biology and minor in Chemistry. I am pursuing my future goal of obtaining my MD/PhD so I can practice Neurosurgery, whilst conducting research on neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. If admitted into GMU’s Honor college, it would give me the push and challenge to truly excel in my undergraduate years. The Honor College would prepare me for the testing and admittance process dealing with medical school. I would also be surrounded by like minded individual that would help motivate me to pursue my dreams.
