Completing the preparation for my academic advisor visit did not help me in organization, planning, and identifying questions. Although I went to see my academic advisor three weeks before my registration began, my academic advisor still had a long line of people to see her. When I went in to see my academic advisor, she was incredibly quick and seemed busy. She already had my transcript from, my current schedule on screen, and had the nutrition and dietetics curriculum on her desk. She just simply picked a few classes I can take next semester, and then wrote them down on a piece of paper and that was it. She did not take time with me to discuss anything. She did not try to make small talk. My academic advisor did not give me really a chance to ask her a question, as well as I was uncomfortable to ask her a question sense I got the sense she that she was rushing. As a result, I end up choosing the classes, that I think is best for me to take next semester.
Mattie Stepanek, American poet, once said, “Unity is strength…when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” When talking about doctors and patients, there needs to be wonderful things achieved: the solution to the patient’s ailment. But yet, there is little teamwork and collaboration in the process of finding a patient’s solution. Collaboration between the doctor and patient allows both the doctor and patient to solve the problem together, coming to a solution that uses both the doctor’s and patient’s skills, solves the issue effectively, and can help others in the future, giving it an advantage over when there is no collaboration.
Since Alexis took time out of her busy day to personally acknowledge the well being of a former patient, I was reassured about my interest in the healthcare field. I was given an opportunity to shadow a physical therapist 's daily routine, and tag along during strenuous cases. However, I witnessed how much a health profession can impact the personal lives of a patient in a positive way. To work in an environment that interacts with the community and promotes good health is something I aspire towards. I believe that Butler University will provide the necessary pathways for me to choose which healthcare profession I would like to be a part of. At Butler University, I will continue to improve my communication skills, and become a friend for everyone in my

Last year’s failed attempt to gain entry to medical school has been soul crushing and has forced me to consider other career paths. During this period, I have examined many options. I feel that if I were to pursue these, I would be successful. However, I know that deep down I would never be as fulfilled, as I would be healing others.
Wal-Mart’s non-branded, generic acetaminophen was a panacea in my household. During my childhood, all ailments were managed with a $2.15 bottle of unlabeled white pills until a doctor’s visit was unavoidable. This is because the $30 copay for a brief ten minute doctor appointment represented five hours of my father’s $6 hourly wage. He sought overtime to help make ends meet. Ends seldom met.
The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University’s (LKSOM) mission and values reflect the will of an institution to impart students with an understanding of the necessary balance between gaining knowledge and fostering a sense of community. This commitment manifests in the emphasis on longitudinal care, interprofessional team learning, and the many varied opportunities for volunteering in the city and abroad. The opportunity to contribute to a wonderful community in one of the most culturally vibrant cities in America has drawn me to LKSOM. An education at LKSOM means many things: living in a beautiful city, having the opportunity to participate in world-changing research, serving an incredibly diverse patient population, traveling abroad, as well as pursuing various other life-changing experiences.
Penn State’s Four-Pillar Model is a standout. Clinical Science and Basic Science are the fabric of any medical program, but Penn State adds the Humanities and Systems Science pillars. As a humanities major and holistic thinker, this program is a perfect fit for me. Additionally, I have over twelve months of clinical experience and desire early clinical exposure; I thrive in small-group and team settings. Therefore, I believe PSU and I are a great
I feel that my particular experiences and passion will add strength and diversity to the USF medical class. Growing up from a lower socio-economic status has exposed me to a certain lifestyle in which one must be flexible and resilient in order to survive. In order to traverse the hardship, one must develop inner strength at a younger age. Those experiences has shaped my perspective on the outcome of hard work and opportunity. I am a firm believer of the saying, "What don 't kill you, makes you stronger". One of the recent obstacles that I had to overcome was my diagnosis and removal of a World Health Organization grade three tumors from my spinal column. During the spring semester of my senior year of undergrad, I fell ill and could not continue
As a child, I hated looking through my endless supply of legos to find that one piece that would finish whatever structure I was creating. Sure, my curiosity is innate, but I learn the most from times that require critical problem-solving. Though I have always had an affinity for math and science, my time spent volunteering at a local hospital has added an element of healthcare to my passions. At Duke, every course and opportunity has been designed not only to challenge its students, but also to push them in making a global impact. More specifically, the biomedical engineering program at Duke transcends the average classroom, and encourages innovation through research, from stimulating genes using light to cultivating the first responsive muscle
