Alice is a very polite and professional candidate. All though a lot of administrative experience has been in healthcare, she is interested in branching out of the healthcare environment. She most recently completed a temporary assignment for Allied Health Group as an Administrative Office Assistant. In this role, she would run daily reports, handle requests via phone and in person, and maintained the database. Prior to that, she had worked for Comprehensive Dermatology as a Medical Administrative Assistant.
For the last two years, I have been volunteering in Mackenzie Willamette’s emergency department. I helped around and talked to a lot of people in the medical profession and I observed how they communicated with each other. I saw the benefits of good communication and how it can positively improve the work environment. And I saw how negative communication can distract from what really matters; providing safe and reliable care for the patients. So coming into this project I wanted to take what I had observed and
CHC Observation- A Reflective Note Ahmed Nadeem – 507125 The Aga Khan University Medical College is definitely, what some would call it, a unique institution- unique in the sense that it helps its students get a more practical approach to learning. It values and preaches a learning process that is not limited to mere large class formats or presentations per say, but to a holistic system where ‘what you learn’ is linked to ‘how to apply what you have learned’ from the very inception of an individual’s medical learning. I being a first year medical student can definitely say that this process is helping me immensely, and the Community Health Clinic Observation is a testament to that. When I first got to know that first year medical students
I first established I wanted to pursue a course in adult nursing when I was 11 years old; I had to undergo surgery and had a week-long stay in hospital. The commitment and enthusiasm the nurses had to looking after me as well as going the extra-mile to make me feel secure, happy and support me during my stay. This is the first time I had witnessed what courageous things they do daily and from that moment I felt inspired and I knew that I wanted to be part of a team that supports vulnerable people in their times of need. I hope in the future I can equal their diligence and passion and show that I am here to help and the patients can confide in me. Additionally, this course will allow me to progress to become an adult nurse, therefore will permit me into making a difference in people’s lives daily and there is nothing I find more rewarding then helping vulnerable people in their times of need and improving their quality of life.
I learned that practice makes execution. All the practicing I did with my roommate behind scenes allowed me to be able to assess patients properly. Practicing allowed me to stop stumbling over words, to speak slower, to listen closely to the responses, and most importantly learn how to add sensitivity to the voice when asking the questions in section two. Lastly, I learned that because I am able to complete CCM MDS assessments on the geriatric population in the facility, I am happy to say that I have more patience than I could have ever
I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
My overall experience was very good and that experience is one that I will never forget, because I’ve learned so much just by being there and having to do actual assessment and vitals on real people. Plus, it was my first time in the working force and background. I would absolutely love to go back and revisit them all again. I had two particular residents of my own personally that I assisted twice a week. One of my residents had Alzheimer’s
Having to take on this role instilled the quality of compassion and empathy within me as I carefully observed the physician’s kind and professional treatment of their patients, including my parents. It also exposed me to role models to look up to as someone who aspires to be a knowledgeable and confident physician. Thus, my parents’ dependence on me inspired my love for practicing medicine as a means of helping people in need and spurred my interest in volunteering and shadowing at hospitals and
INTRODUCTION The Healthcare information system (HIS) is a group of systems used to support and enhance healthcare e.g. Clinical information systems (CISs) ,Administrative information system .Nursing Information System (NIS). (WHO, 2016) These systems combined together provide a standardized nursing language for nurses because it provides a common pattern for all nurses in different locations. (Hebda, Czar & Mascara, 2005) These combinations can reduce a number of medically related errors and improve our health care system. For many years, the medical field created several ways and means to educate those who are learning as well as they provided practice for those who have already established themselves as doctors, nurses and persons specialized
The therapist I work with encourages me to ask questions, so I benefit and learn from volunteering. They also encourage me to be hands on, and communicate with the patients as much as I can. I believe some of the most important skills to have in any medical field are good communication skills, staying organized, and working under
Having volunteered with a hospital (Loma Linda Murrieta) that utilized Scribe America scribes, I saw firsthand the expectations and responsibilities of a Scribe America scribe. I also saw how the job was serving as a major stepping stone to many of the scribes overall healthcare career. I want to be a Scribe America scribe firstly because I have seen firsthand what the scribes can do to aid the physicians and what the scribes gained from it, such as strong work relations, education, and experience but also because I have an immense amount of respect for the company. One of the reasons why I have an immense amount of respect for the company is because of the opportunities it provides its scribes, but also because I saw first-hand the treatment the scribes received. What impressed me about Scribe America’s treatment was the work that went into cultivating a positive and enthusiastic work environment for the scribes and chief’s scribes.
For my Capstone Project, I chose the career as physician assistant. I worked hard throughout the year to make sure I make a good grade on the Capstone Project. I job shadowed at D.D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in the pain management unit. I spent most of the time observing my mentor while she performed check-ups on her patients.
By shadowing a cardiologist, Dr. Chaim Gitelis, I learned about the anatomy and pathophysiology of the cardiac system. While shadowing, Dr. Gitelis taught me the fundamentals of reading an EKG and echocardiogram as well as the basic management of cardiac disease. I interacted with the patients on the inpatient wards and well as the clinic. Dr. Gitelis impressed upon me the importance of giving each patient the time they need. He clarified the patient’s problem, discussed his thoughts with respect to the patient’s disease, and explained how he planned to treat each patient.
When I think of a physician and their characters I immediately think of the traits listed in this honor code. A physician must be a leader in order to make important decisions that will affect the lives of others. I believe that a leader is someone who helps guide and works well with others. I feel that this is a quality I have. I have always worked well with others and have been the leader for most of my college group projects or debates.
During my undergraduate and graduate years, I maintained full-time employment to ensure college remained affordable for my family and I. Hence, my employment experiences have provided me with a great respect for social and ethical views that differ from my own which will allow me work well with others from diverse backgrounds. In addition, my extensive employment history has granted me with the work ethic required to endure the strenuous work schedule of both a medical student and physician. Furthermore, working at the University of Miami Hospital, specifically, has enlightened me about the practicalities of providing direct patient care. Ultimately, being able to work while enrolled full-time in courses has taught me the art of time management; a trait I believe will be essential to my success while in medical
