It is crazy thinking about all the resources we have now to help people return from injuries. We have come such a long way in helping people with technology over the years. I learned that ultrasound can help warm muscles up in spots that are hard to warm up. Since I will be taking kinesiology next semester and I am really looking forward to it. I asked Nicole what some of the content will be like in the class.
Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
My Experience in the Health Care Studies Program It feels like just yesterday I was a freshman in college unaware of what was before me. Now that I am about to be a graduate, reflecting will be bittersweet as this road comes to an end. When I was in middle school and high school I was always attracted to the medical field. Though my interests changed from wanting to be a doctor, to a vet, and then to an occupational therapist, my “dream job” always stayed in the medical realm. I believe this stems from me being an empathetic person and genuinely wanting to help others in any way I can, especially the people who are looked past including those with a disability or mental illness.
Firstborns tend to feel responsible for other people, projects, or the world at large according to a book titled Do You Know Who You Are? Flipping through the 200 page book I realized I don’t know myself entirely but one thing I do know is my interest in the medical field. There wasn’t one particular day I woke up and realized I had an interest in the medical field, it all happened within a year span. Always being the quiet person in class I deprived myself from many experiences. I realized I needed to become more outgoing.
I want to become a Medical Assistant because I enjoy helping others, and making them feel better. Medical Assistant is not just a career for me, it’s a goal that I will achieve with much pride and honor, and prove wrong those people who keep telling me that I’m not going to make it. I’m not really good in science, but I’m going to push myself to try hard to achieve my goal. Don’t ever let anyone label you, be your own kind of person and make the “impossible” possible. I know that it’s not going to be easy because of all the things you have to learn and memorize to become a Medical Assistant.
During this time period I saw multiple neurologists, orthopedists, and concussion specialists all around the state and country. These physicians were not mentors to me, but the things they discussed while going through the diagnosing process thoroughly intrigued me. I honestly had no idea what it meant to be a doctor minus the various checkups and shots required for school. From the first concussion on though, I began to expand my knowledge surrounding the field of medicine. By the end of my freshman year of high school I knew this was now something I wanted to pursue and took every academic and shadowing opportunity I could to ensure this.
Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her and i remember I was just always so mesmerised by the idea of the human body.
Today is the being of my third clinical experience here at Avalon Care Center. The past two clinical days have very exciting and I have felt my confidants grow after each experience, going into each new clinical stronger than the previous one. After hearing some interesting feedback from my fellow classmates after our group discussion, I have been looking forward for today. Today clinical assignment was in the Rehabilitation unit also referred to as the “Hallway of Hope”, where patients are admitted from the hospital until there’re strong enough to return home setting or will be transferred to the Long Term Care unit. Today, I had the pleasure of working alongside of Rose, due to the fewer amount of residents compared with the other halls,
Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field. I was exposed to the world of medicine from a very young age. My mother, sister, and grandmother all had careers in the field. I was always the selected person to help them study for a quiz, practice a procedure on, and to hear about their stories from work. Their careers seemed fascinating.
Evolution from Novice to a Beginning Professional Nurse Looking back when I started my nursing school, I can proudly say that I have evolved both physically and psychologically. I was not sure if nursing was the right choice for me at first because I had difficulties interacting with people outside my family circle. The first semester was challenging for me because I did not know how to interact with my class mates and felt isolated each time there is a class activity. I joined a study group later that semester and it has been an excitement ever since. Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress.
They design plans that can be help patients recover from various injuries, also a PT must promote the health of their patients (United 1). Over time, the career of a PT has become more advanced, this includes the technology that a PT uses and the techniques they use. Most PTs are employed in hospitals and physician’s offices (Bureau 3). The career for a PT is a stressful one, yet many PTs receive myriad amounts of enjoyment from watching their patients break their
