No longer was I a little girl playing dress up with my mom, I got to meet with patients and read clinical charts. The internship showed me a glimpse of my future. Waking up 6 hours before I normally would in the summer and spending 12 or more hours in the hospital each day seemed daunting, but instead increased my determination to be a physician. It showed me the physical demands of the jobs in the health care field, with long hours and extensive walking from floor to floor, but helped me become more mentally prepared for the future. After I saw the joy in some patients’ faces when told they were cured, I was convinced beyond a doubt of my career choice.
For health 490, I am seeking to get an internship that will help cultivate certain aspects of my personal, academic, and career development. When considering my personal development, what I strongly want to improve upon are skills such as leadership capabilities, public speaking, and health communication. I am also seeking for a boost in my confidence in regards to my overall competency and knowledge base in the health field. My self-assurance will not simply stem from the education I gained at Maryland, but will also depend heavily on the first-hand experiences my internship will provide. By exuberating more confidence, I will be able to become more of an effective leader, which will in turn make me successful in my field of work. The target
I would like to enter the Anatomy & Physiology Mentorship program because I am interested in entering the medical field when I attend college, and I also want to go to medical school after obtaining a degree in college. Entering the medical field and becoming a medical professional for me is an excellent opportunity to help the people in need and those who require care and safety above anything else. Joining the mentorship program will let me experience firsthand the challenges, opportunities, and skills that are necessary to become a medical professional. From the mentorship program, I hope to gain medical experience that will strengthen my understanding of the medical environment. I also want to gain an insight into how medical professionals behave and
I also planed to gain experienced and knowledge form volunteering at the ASANTE Ashland Community Hospital and use that understanding for future reference. By the end of my internship I’m hoping to find the right department of Nursing for me.
Ever since I started in high school, mission work has been a major part of my life. For the past three years, for two weeks at a time, I have been going to the poorest region of Jamaica. The organization I have been a part of is called American Caribbean Experience, or ACE for short. The experiences I have had while doing mission work in Jamaica have changed my life forever. In order to pursue my passion for mission work I decided to apply for an internship with ACE. I was chosen along with six other people to become interns for the summer of 2018. This internship will be the first thing I do as soon as I graduate because I leave May 23rd and we graduate May 21st. This internship will also prepare me for my long term goal of becoming a doctor
I am interested in the Research Associate Internship program because it will allow me to be competitive in a meaningful career, build professional skills, and give me more of a chance to succeed in my higher education. For example, my professional goal is to become a Physician Assistant, because I want to assist physicians in curing illnesses, alleviating pain, and helping patients to have better futures. By joining the medical field, I hope to serve our community more. To get a further understanding of the medical field, I volunteered at the Maimonides Medical Center for five months and had a great experience connecting with patients. As a patient representative, I was provided the chance to visit patients’ rooms at the surgical unit, where
When I first decided I wanted to pursue a Masters of Occupational Therapy, the University of Kansas Medical Center quickly ended up at the top of my list of potential programs. I considered that it was in the community I know and love, it was clearly a top ranked program, and it would let me become something I’d always dreamed of being--a Jayhawk! As the time got closer to when I would have to make my final decision on where to apply, I became close to a student who was enrolled in the KU MOT program. She was the becoming the therapist I wanted to be. She praised the KU program and faculty, so I decided to visit the campus and see for myself what she was talking about. Visiting with students and instructors in the program solidified my decision
It is with great enthusiasm that I submit a letter of interest for the clinical therapist position at The Ohio State University Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS). As a previous psychology intern and a current post-internship clinical fellow at CCS, I am well acquainted with the rich, supportive, and interdisciplinary climate fostered in the agency. This, along with the opportunity to serve marginalized populations, and tailor group and outreach activities to the needs of students and the larger university community, makes CCS the ideal place to begin my professional career. I believe that the rigorous didactic and clinical training I have gained working specifically within college counseling centers over the last four and a half years has prepared me well to serve at a dynamic, fast-paced clinical environment such as yours.
Though this first of many steps is overwhelming, I had to make my first adult decision and choose a college to call my own. Nonetheless, the satisfaction I felt when I discovered that Alabama State University has a well renown occupational therapy program eased all my fears. Upon research, I discovered that 92 percent of Alabama State University’s Occupational Therapy Graduates passed the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. After attending the OT open house on November 15th, I realized that this program would challenge my intellectual abilities as it prepared me for a rewarding career in health science. I know God’s designed me to heal people’s hearts and bodies. Occupational therapy perfectly fits my objectives in my
Thus, the most influential reason I am striving to attend University of Michigan is the Health Sciences Scholars Program. This program includes classes that are specific to the health sciences, in comparison to classes at other universities that won’t satisfy my specific interests. The program provides a plethora of community service opportunities that allow students to actually make a difference in the community while also practicing skills needed in the field of health care. As a HSSP student I would be participating in professional observations, where I would be able to work with health care professionals while also being exposed to different careers. Many students aspiring to work in the health care field don’t have the opportunity to work with patients or doctors until they go to medical school, but I could accomplish this through HSSP during my freshman year. I can’t be a superhero without some prior experience after all. In comparison to other residential programs, such as Lyman Briggs at Michigan State, the Health Sciences Scholars Program at University of Michigan would provide me with the most opportunities to grow and pursue my passion for medicine and healing
Being an intern at the Aspire Clinic had been a very influential experience in my life. I did not learn about the clinic until the week before I applied; the Career Center sent me an email urging me to apply as an intern. Once I did my research on the clinic, I found that the Aspire Clinic provides holistic counseling and education services to UGA students, as well as the Athens community by offering individual, couple, and family therapy, financial counseling and education, nutrition counseling and education, and also legal problem solving. I was excited to work in the clinic because I knew I could contribute as a member of the team to further assist our community with the holistic approach.
Beginning May 18th, interns were invited to weekly seminars or field trips that helped facilitate the summer internship. The three field trips were to Williamson County Health Department, Mid-Cumberland Regional Health Office, and The State Lab. We got to meet with Commissioner Dr. John Dreyzehner, along with several other executives that spoke about the programs they are involved with. The program also opened the door to become familiar with other interns that attend other universities. Most of the interns were pursuing a Master’s in Public Health, a few were working on their doctoral degree, and a few were finishing their bachelor degree. The last two seminars were about writing and critiquing your resume, interviewing skills, and instructing us on applying for state jobs. The TDH Internship Program really helped facilitate and engage the interns.
This is the last semester of my radiologic sciences bachelor program. Throughout the many months, there have been countless situations which prompted me to form and execute decisions which have led to a patient’s well being. Although this is a subjective statement, I genuinely believe that I was able to impact many of my patients in a positive fashion. From experience it seemed that patients understood my intention and allowed themselves to trust me. The clinical experience this program has entailed is outstanding in respect to the other programs. I was given the opportunity to intern at multiple sites ranging from Santa Clarita to East LA to Santa Monica. With that being said, the demographics in these areas are so different and allowed me to adjust to various ethnic and social groups. The following examples are situations, which occurred throughout my final fall semester.
My internship experience at the South Central Family Health Center has been amazing. After this week I will have completed one month at my internship and the knowledge and experience I’ve been able to gain has helped me develop tremendously, both professionally and personally. Among the various things that I’ve been able to do at the clinic include, assisting in the implementation of the new patient portal (NEXTGEN), work on creating various projects with the IT department (e.g., helping prepare for the implementation of ICD-10), taking a lead in the planning of the clinic’s summer health festival, shadowing various physician, and assisting the prenatal department with numerous administrative tasks. Indeed, I have had a lot on my plate this past few weeks, but the exposure and information I’ve been able learn about the current status of community health centers in urban areas has been substantial and crucial in my development. With these new found knowledge about the different careers possible within the health care industry and the duties and responsibilities that accompany them, I have been able to expand on my options upon graduation and simultaneously narrow them down to those that I find most intriguing.
