Through the third-riding time I have accumulated, I have seen a few gruesome encounters such as motor vehicle accidents as well as many different traumas. I have been lucky to be able to go through the health occupations curriculum at my high school and attain my Certified Nursing Assistant certification as well as my healthcare provider, CPR/AED and First Aid certifications. I also received clinical experience through Lawrence General Hospital in the Emergency Center, during my time there my love for medicine grew tremendously and fed my ambition not only for high school, but for college and my future as well. I find comfort in helping anyone and creating a better situation for them if someone is going through a hard time, as I did when I was younger with my great grandparents. Knowing how much a medical hardship can affect someone makes me want to help that much more.

I wanted to make something happen that had a more important meaning. Making crafts and helping with my friend’s fair animals was great and I will always love those memories; however, I wanted to make a change. After doing a 4-H project on my family history, I realized that too many people in my life have been taken from me because of one disease: cancer. I knew right away that other people want to make a difference and find a cure to cancer too. This is when I realized I wanted to take all the skills I gained through 4-H and lead my peers in a team through the American Cancer Society Relay for
Introduction Primary care is said to be the “first point of contact” for people when accessing the health care system in Ireland (Department of health and children 2001). The World health organisation(1978) outline that one of the main roles of primary health care is to provide access to care for the most vulnerable but also to identify and rectify the factors which lead to their early mortality. The Alma Ata declaration (1978) was a huge milestone in the development of primary care and they explain how essential it is for all populations’ health. Unfortunately the vulnerable populations in Ireland suffer the effects of the social determinates and also the health inequalities and die younger because they put up with a healthcare system which “places lesser value on the lives of those with lesser means” (Wren 2002).
Northwestern’s Problem Based Learning (PBL) curriculum is the primary factor influencing my decision to apply to the PA Program. I strongly believe that a PBL-centered format is the optimal way for me to learn how to practice medicine. Although many PA programs have adopted the PBL system, Northwestern is uniquely equipped to supplement its curriculum with resources such as the Simulation Technology and Immersive Learning Center (STIL Center). Additionally, the Program’s location and affiliations with several esteemed Chicagoland area clinical sites provides students with access to unparalleled clinical learning opportunities. This combination of unique and distinctive features offers an exceptional learning experience to Northwestern PA students.
One of their goals is to combat rampant diseases and treat serious health problems and disabilities. On their website it states that they have “183 health programmes in 39 countries, focusing on healthcare and the prevention of disease. These include 23 general hospitals and more than 150 clinics and health posts.” (Salvation Army) Along with offering health care, they also fight against trafficking, modern slavery, to name a few.
Education is the key in decreasing the risk factors for heart disease in general public. Cardiovascular disease accounts for one in three deaths annually n the United States (Luckhaupt & Calvert, 2014). Therefore, community nurses need to take the extra step and travel to local businesses, schools and facilities to do teaching and motivate the community for healthier lifestyles. Expanding new health programs is one way to induce lifestyle changes in the community.
The scope of the UBC Pharmacy Practice Residency Program is to provide residents with the structured, strong and varied learning opportunities needed to develop the scientific background, talents and professional attributes necessary for direct patient care roles and innovative practice of pharmacy. The program focused on institutional pharmacy practice and designed to provide residents with unique opportunities to practice within the variety of sites and patient care settings encompassed by vast urban and rural university-affiliated health regions, skillful preceptors provide residents with role models to follow in their career objectives pursuit and a network of practice specialists, mentors and researchers who can provide lifelong guidance. It took me a long time to scrutinize your curriculum and communicate with residents associated with your hospitals, I came up with an idea that your program’s outcomes and challenging
I chose TTUHSC SOM because of the ability to learn medicine in a place that values the art of patient care in its foundation as well as the ability to do anything I hope to do in medicine guided by the strength of its mission and the care that TTUHSC SOM provides for its students. I would like to conduct my medical career in a setting that converges between urban and rural settings. My parents brought their strong work ethic from Ghana, cultivated on their family’s farms, to Austin, Texas where it was critical in encouraging my own desire to work in close contact with a diverse population of patients. My experiences in the communities I’ve lived in and health care have provided me with the insight to work within both types of areas. My most prominent experiences in health care have come from working in clinics that serve underserved populations.
It also taught me about the steps a health educator could take in order to “close the health disparity gap regarding Alzheimer’s disease and African Americans” (Fortune, Lang, Cook, & Byrd 2013). This stood out to me, because it went hand-in-hand with the Dream Job research that we had to do for the class. The article provided the same job responsibilities that I researched for the Dream Job assignment. It confirmed that the job responsibilities that I found were key in preventing disease and helping control the spreading of disease. I learned that Alzheimer’s affects African American’s disproportionately compared to other races.
Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission.
Something terrible has just happened. You received a call earlier this afternoon from your mother she informed you that your father has had a terrible accident. He was outside on the tractor doing his daily afternoon chores when something bizarre happened. Your mother found him sitting there unconscious and unresponsive. Fast forward.
From the Kaiser Permanente career website, I was delighted to learn about the RN I position at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center in the Medical Telemetry Department. Kaiser Permanente is a leader in our nation’s healthcare system and has the standard for promoting wellness and disease prevention in our communities. As a result, I am excited about the possibility of being part an organization that so deeply shares the same passion as I of providing holistic and compassionate health care. After obtaining my first degree in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Irvine and assisting nurses and CNAs as a Clinical Care Extender, I became inspired to pursue a career in nursing. I obtained my RN license July 2015 and graduated
