A medical practice that I have highly considered is general surgery. Both my grandfather and uncle are general surgeons, so the idea of following in their footsteps interested me greatly. Also, the idea of combining science and art, as doctors do, has always fascinated me and called me to this profession since a very young age. Like any doctor, the road to becoming a general surgeon is vigorous. “Surgery is a career for the committed. Much of your life is dictated by the demands of the operating room. The training is long and demanding. But for those who love it, a
Several years ago, my appendix nearly ruptured and I had to have surgery. At that time, the staff was caring, kind, and aware of my pain, and the environment was never boring. Everyone was in a rush, and there was never a dull moment. The atmosphere is exhilarating; nurses, doctors and emergency medical technicians are always in a rush to help patients. Afterwards, I realized I wanted to help people in the same way the medical personnel helped me. This inspired me to pursue my EMT certification, but my ultimate goal is to attend medical school and become a surgeon. To be able to pursue my dream, I hope to attend (School) because of the strong curriculum and capable instructors.
I was born on February 14, 1993 in the city of La Vega, Dominican Republic. I came to New York at the age of 10. The fact that my first language is Spanish placed me at a disadvantage from the minute I stepped a foot in the United States since
They serve as pillars of wisdom and guidance while exhibiting communication adroitness with care teams and patients to engineer top-notch medical care. To maintain high standards, effective medical professionals are constantly taking in new information through continuing education, placing providers at the pinnacle of knowledge. Moreover, physicians require affective aptitude as they must convey empathy during patient interactions. All these attributes draw me to seek the personal challenge and resulting responsibilities that are demanded. I desire to become an important contribution to society in a field I am passionate
Internship at James A Lovell Federal Health Care Center The goal of the internship was to complete a 150 hours and provide a weekly summary of activities. In order to get the internship I had to do a phone screening with Mary Doe. She is the administrative assistant to Commander John Doe. Who is the Assistant Associate Director of Facility Support and also the internship supervisor for the SIU Health Care Management students at FHCC. I meet with CDR John Doe for a brief interview. We went over my goals and what I hope to gain by interning at FHCC. I felt interning at FHCC would be a natural transition because CDR Wallis has a background in Healthcare Administration.
As a medical assistant student I participated in a month long internship at North Country Family Health Center in Watertown New York. I was interning at the Health Center where I was active with many Medical Assistants and LPN’S.
Through this opportunity I will gain invaluable experience within the medical field and gain knowledge about a field of medicine that I have not previously been exposed to.
After visiting numerous countries and states on 5 continents, I have learned that education-something commonly taken for granted here- is not always equally distributed or is inaccessible due to poverty or segregation in various places. Therefore, I surmise that attending the Stanford CSI Program is an opportunity that should not be thrown away; rather, it should be embraced because many are barred from having any education whatsoever. If I am selected to participate in this program, I would bring my intellectual curiosity: this desire to learn in the hopes of applying the insight I gain in the future. I always branch out, break the status quo, and apply myself to any activity I am a part of to create an exceptional work environment for anyone I work with. Given my self-driven tenacity and passion to become a medical professional, I believe that I will be a valuable asset to the Stanford CSI Internship. Through this program, I would get the opportunity to probe the workings of various medical specialties and gain knowledge, maturity, and responsibility; however, I'm applying because I know that my future begins
Upon returning to campus, I pursued My knowledge and abilities are developing; nevertheless, I acknowledge they are far from refined. Consequently, I feel the Physician Assistant Fellowship in Hospital Internal Medicine is the ideal program to facilitate professional growth and encourage a successful transition from student to provider. In turn, I am confident I possess the curiosity, passion, and work ethic to make the most an extraordinary educational opportunity. I am excited to meet the challenges of the fellowship and the demands of internal medicine. Thank you for your
The biggest influence of my life has been the Dr. Bill Neches Heart Camp for Kids. Heart Camp is a weeklong summer camp for children who live with Congenital Heart Disease. I have been attending this camp since the age of eight and have worked as a junior counselor the
Future Career Paper The career I have chosen to pursue in the future is a surgeon. A surgeon is a physician who performs surgical operations. They are who cut the human body for the purpose of removing diseased tissue or organs, to repair body systems, or to replace diseased organs with transplants. Surgeons may be physicians, dentists, podiatrists, and veterinarians. Surgeons can be general surgeons and perform all types of surgery, or they can be specialized, such as heart surgeons or brain surgeons. I plan to specialize in heart surgery or as its also known cardiothoracic surgeon. A cardiothoracic surgeon is a medical doctor who specializes in surgical procedures of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs in the chest. This includes surgeons who can be called cardiac surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons, general thoracic surgeons, and congenital heart surgeons.
For years now, I’ve had dreams of going to medical school and becoming a surgeon. I don’t know what kind of surgeon I would want to be, but cardiothoracic is up there. In my eighth-grade science class we dissected pig’s hearts and a kid’s dad, a heart surgeon, helped. He told me I had the hands of a surgeon, which I thought was incredible considering my aspirations. Not only did this article interest me because I have general knowledge on the workings of a heart, but also because it shows the process of cleaning up mistakes in a medical
I am pursuing the Student Intern Program because I want to challenge myself in a structured scientific environment. I want to prepare for college rigor and potential research opportunities. The variety of studies your program offers intrigues me because this internship would push boundaries for me--would I truly enjoy lab work in a wet lab? Would I be satisfied with my projects? The experience could change my path in the sciences, which is an interesting idea because for years now, I have been interested in pursuing a medical career--specifically, ophthalmology. I am interested in ophthalmology for a few reasons: biology has always held my attention and is my forte; eyes are fascinating to me; and, perhaps most importantly, I have strong stomach in regards to the human body and its operations.To prepare for a science career, I am investigating colleges with internship and study abroad programs. Swarthmore College is my top choice for many reasons, including that nearly twenty percent of its students go on to receive doctoral degrees. With their uniquely challenging Honors Program and financial support of students’ academic interests, Swarthmore would help me attain my science and language goals through accessible internships and encouragement of foreign study. I
Internship: This was my first week in which I started my internship in Stony Brook Medicine Information Technology (SBMIT) at Flowerfield. I worked alongside with site supervisor Eileen Gilmartin. I learned about how “tickets” are received via “helpdesk application” from clinical side to Health IT. Ticket, has to do any issue
When I was filling out the questionnaires about possible career opportunities, cardiac surgery and psychiatry were the jobs that I liked the most within the career field best suited for my interests. The first, cardiac surgery falls in the health science field. Demand for the profession has steadily increased
