As an aspiring Diagnostic Radiographer I 've always wanted to be part of the NHS Radiographing team. By completing further reading on Radiography I have discovered a real passion for the discipline and I have secured the opportunity to shadow radiographers across several Buckinghamshire Hospital sites. I have been slowly developing caring skills for patients through these engagements and am excited with the experience as it has shown me what is involved from the inside. Currently I am completing an Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care and I am looking to apply the knowledge and skills I have gained from it during my University course and my chosen career path. During the course I have completed work experience which has enabled me to apply theory into practice and I have observed the need for continuous professional development within radiography.
When someone hears the word “influential”, they often think about their family or friends. While my family and friends have made a big impact on my life, there is one person who has given me more motivation than anyone else I know in my day to day life. Her name was Elizabeth Blackwell. She is most well known as the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States, and as well as the first woman on the UK Medical Register. She faced harassment while going to college, and struggled everyday to achieve a degree in medicine.
In her 16 years at CUMC, she has moved up the ladder and began teaching residents at the hospital. Her leading by example has been crucial in her rise to success. She has recently become a professor and continues her leadership every day. Caron has become an advocate for the less fortunate in her years at the hospital. Dr. Gray also works at One World Community Health Center.
Over the Christmas break I was introduced to the Nurse Educator in the ICU at Toronto Western, I followed up with her in January and was able to complete a number of observational shifts in the ICU to enhance learning and understanding of what is required to work in a CC setting. Currently, I am completing my 3rd year community placement at The Hospital for Sick Children, and have reapplied to complete my 4th year consolidation there. I selected Operating Room and Perioperative care as my first choice of units to be placed. By completing my consolidation in the AC or CC areas I will gain valuable experience which will facilitate in procuring a position in these areas after graduation. I have also applied for a summer position at the hospital as a clinical extern, which will hopefully assist in gain a consolidation position at SickKids in year 4.
I have been in the medical field for many years and have decided to take advantage and pursue my degree in nursing. I worked in Emergency Department as EMT because I like to work at a fast pace environment and meet different people every day. I want to be able to help people when they are in need of an emergency, and I want to help save people’s lives and make a difference in this world. My spare time usually consists of homework, me being in school, spending movie nights with my wife and gym. I 'm taking this English course in order to learn how to reinforce my writing skills not only for the college courses that I am taking now and plan on taking and will take in the future, but also for nursing purposes once I receive my degree.
Ever since grade school, I was passionate about working in the field of medicine, and science. I enjoyed anatomy, medical spelling and terminology, and reading about the healthcare industry. Because of my passion for healthcare, I decided to to attend Health Sciences High. There, I was given the best opportunities, such as, medical internships and college health courses. My plans and goals had turned me into a mature young adult.
I am writing to express my interest in and enthusiasm for a summer internship through Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Currently, I am a college senior obtaining a Bachelors of Science in Health Services Administration. As part of the education requirements, I am expected to intern 400 hours through the organization of my choice. I have been drawn to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for your local and national recognition of quality care as well as for a challenging but rewarding internship. Reviewing the Foundations Department Services Intern requirements and qualifications, I find that I would be a great fit.
It is my hope to complete an internship at your clinic, Capstone Physical Therapy, to expand my clinical experience in an outpatient setting. I am currently attending the University of St. Augustine of Health Sciences in San Marcos, California. As I write this letter I am completing my first internship at an outpatient clinic in Prosser, Washington evaluating and treating patients with the assistance of my clinical instructor. This experience leaves me excited for a future career in an important medical practice where I can make a positive impact on the communities that I live in. Before attending graduate school I received my bachelors in science from Western Washington University.
I want to make an impact on each patient’s life, and to try and influence them to follow their dreams, and to care for their health. I do not want my patients to dread going to the doctor, I want them to have excitement over it. I want them to take control of their lives by the knowledge I will provide them. I will do that by doing my job to the best of my ability, and yet be known as a friend to my
Whether their injury be an ankle sprain or muscle strain, I one-on-one, want to make the decisions on what treatments, exercises, and stretches the athlete with go through. Obviously, with supervision and help if I need it. I rely on my preceptors and peers a lot for help and want to become a more independent clinician. I am eager for my next clinical placement on-campus and cannot wait to see what experience junior year has in
So I signed up to be in an athletic training program and help athletes injured. Later on with in my junior year I was in Medical Terminology and this class has opened my mind to many more medical careers. Seeing the many options in the medical field I realized that I want to pursue a profession in the medical field. My senior year i joined an Emergency Medical Technician class. With this class I see how traumatic and non traumatic
I should be considered for the Kaiser Permanente Health Care Scholarship because I have proved and accomplished more than what I thought I would be capable of in my education, I am passionate for the health industry, and I financially need to be to succeed. I will continue my education by pursuing my goal to become a Registered Nurse. I first considered Registered Nursing when I joined the Health Academy and realized how passionate I was to help others. Throughout my years in the Health Academy, my passion grew drastically. My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours).
My experience with hospital volunteering and involvement with Pre-Physical/Occupational Therapy Club provided me with more exposure to the medical field. I learned how to approach various people I could encounter in my desired career path, physical therapy. With intelligent professionals, such as doctors and nurses, I gained knowledge on how to formally communicate with them and follow the tasks I am given. Regarding the patients of the hospital and their families, I learned how to show compassion and generosity towards strangers that have been stricken by misfortune. An important life lesson that I have acquired throughout the year is that when being involved with volunteer and leadership experience, the greatest reward is not being paid in money or recognition, but being paid in love.
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor.
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.
