While I enjoyed working as a part of a supportive healthcare team, I wanted more than to work with patients from behind the counter. I wanted to prescribe the right drug the first time, to develop meaningful and effective relationships with patients, and to use the skills I mastered as an English major – to write and speak in a clear and concise manner, to interpret complex information, to research, and to think critically – every
PERSONAL STATEMENT FOR INTERNAL MEDICINE CLINICAL ROTATION The physician should look upon the patient as a besieged city and try to rescue him with every means that art and science place at his command (Alexander of Tralles). My decision to enter internal medicine as the next part of my venue responds to several driving forces. Besides deciphering the wonders of the human body, I know how important is to deal with the prevention, diseases detection, and treatment of adult illnesses.
I understand the importance of delivering effective patient care and having empathy for patients since I have a strong foundation in human anatomy, medical language, and patient placement tactics. I am committed to continuing education and training opportunities in order to stay current with new developments in the field, which is constantly expanding with new technology and approaches. Because I am a strong team player who knows the need of working together with others and maintaining open lines of communication in order to offer the best possible outcomes for patients, I am able to work well under the guidance of physicians and other healthcare professionals. I am very excited about the prospect of putting my skills and personal characteristics to work in the service of a healthcare team to help us reach our
This understanding has allowed me to grow tremendously. Without a doubt, this process of maturing has prepared me for the rigors of medical school. There will be many new challenges even some of the worst of experiences or things will fall apart, but I know that things will get better if I take them one step at a time. With this in mind, my aim is to become a doctor who is able to stand in her patients’ shoes and be sensitive to their symptoms and try to meet all of their needs and particularly those beyond their illness. I look forward to making my dreams a reality and await with pleasure the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to improve the lives of others through
On 04/04/2016 I Deputy R. Dean Hildebrand, responded to 3 Springs Street Jefferson City Montana, on a complaint of damage to rental property. Upon Arrival I spoke to the complainant Dianne Thompson. Thompson stated her rental house had been severely damaged by her previous renters Gene Marker and Tanna Ferradas Marker. While walking into the house I saw several windows had been broken. The porch lattice had been damaged.
The Honors College path has five different pathways which include: undergraduate research, study aboard, service learning, internships, and campus leadership. The two pathways that I will incorporate into my four years here at Western are service learning and internships. I have a love for helping the people not only in my community, but anywhere I can help. For my major, I will have to do internships and clinical rotations to obtain my degree. Even though I am only choosing two, I believe that they all may cross my path in the four years here at Western.
When I contemplate why I want to pursue a career in the medical field, I picture my high school allied health class where my enthusiasm for the field first started and I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been around hospitals and doctor’s growing up, but that class opened my eyes to a new world. To learn extensive amounts about the healthcare field and have the opportunity to gain clinical experience has no comparison, to be able to learn hands on at that age, and know that I wanted to care for patients. To see all those elderly residents, to experience helping them and showing them compassion, it made my day, every day I was there. The fact that I can do two things I love, learning new things and helping people get better excites
I have had the unique opportunity during my career to have served in very diverse positions and assignments that have not only operational but strategic level importance. These distinctive assignments encompass the breadth and depth of the US Engineer Regiment. These experiences have given me a broad perspective of various US Army capabilities and their employment. Whether it was assignments with the 82nd Airborne Division and the Global Response Force during my Platoon Leader and Company Executive Officer time, or my Company Command time as the Commander of one of the most unique formations in the Army’s arsenal, Multi-Role Bridge Company. I was always able to understand the strategic importance of the assignments and maximize the readiness
During my first year of english class I had plenty of assignments that was expected of me every day, so I thought this semester was going to be even harder since it’s a higher and more advance level english course. Until the first day of class where we discussed about learning goals number 2 and 3 in the syllabus. They were almost the same as the ones listed on my english 104 and HA-96s course syllabus. Number 2 of the GELOS states that we need to perform the basic step of writing process, including prewriting, organization, composing, revising, and editing. Number 3 of the GELOS states that we need to be aware of what the purpose is, how to phrase the context according to who the audience is and how to effectively use rhetorical appeals.
Ever since I heard about the clinical internship program in school, I knew I wanted to be part of an opportunity that can expand my knowledge about different careers. I desire to take the internship class to gain experience, shadow professionals, see first-hand workforce, improve skills and learn more about careers. Most importantly, I think this internship would be beneficial due to the path I want to take. Ever since I was in middle school, I knew I wanted to work in the medical field. At first, I wanted to become a pediatrician, but as the years passed by, I decided I want to become a nurse.
Investing my time in the care of my patient gives the opportunity to not only assist them in a difficult situation, but also to learn more about their diagnosis and the treatment, while comparing it to what we have learned in class. For example, I had a patient that suffered from Sickle Cell Disease and came to the ER during a crisis. Correlating this case to the books and the content learned in class, these patients receive at least 1000 mL of fluids, pain medication, and oxygen. Additionally, I had a patient with meningitis. This individual presented with common symptoms such as nuchal rigidity, muscle pain, fever, and chills.
A regular activity in which I partake in twice a week is working at Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital 's neonatal intensive care unit as a co-op student. While some of my work consists of organizing files, cleaning charts and restocking supplies, I often help run various clinics in pediatrics as well as labour and delivery. Some include non stress tests, breastfeeding clinics, Respiratory syncytial virus clinics and neonatal follow up clinics. Through this experience I have developed many skills such as effective communication, cultural sensitivity, resourcefulness and problem solving. Another activity I take part in weekly is peer mentoring, a program my school offers which allows younger students to seek assistance from senior students in academic, extracurricular and social needs.
This is a summary of my learning whilst being on the foundation degree. I am finally at the end of my counselling degree and I think this has been my biggest accomplishment to date, alongside raising my boys. I have learned such a lot about myself and gained a better insight into how and why I relate to others the way I did and still do. In my PDP presentation, I talked about client work, supervision, peers, Personal development group, and personal therapy so I will just summarise these in this essay.
I spend a significant amount of time just thinking about myself as I go throughout my day. I constantly question myself: why am I the way that I am, what could I have done better here, what is my place in the world, etc. In the context of this paper, I have come to a conclusion. In the past, I was a leader. Now, I realized I have failed.
