I chose to apply to Georgetown University School of Medicine for several reasons that I think will allow me to become a well-prepared physician. I envision myself working in primary care in underserved communities and what Georgetown University School of Medicine aims to train their students to be medical professionals with empathy and respect are qualities that I am looking for as a prospective medical student from a medical school’s mission and vision. The more than one hundred and fifty years of experience that this institution has and its continuation of providing the best education and always putting the service to others first are the main reasons why I applied to this medical school.
Just as the institution is eager to continue embracing the ever-changing world of healthcare and medicine, I too embody this same distinguishing characteristic. Throughout my undergraduate experiences I have learned in order to be a steward and servant of the medical profession one must exercise teamwork, service, empathy, accountability, and optimism; all of which coincide with the tenets that are declared by the Meharry Medical College, School of Medicine culture. Attending this medical school would be one of the greatest rewards for my motivation and persistence. I know for certain there would be no greater experience than to be a part of the Meharry Medical College
Beyond the immediate exposure of healthcare best practices and how to address each situation with its own urgency; it has molded me to develop the skills necessary to balance a busy schedule to meet deadlines. Keck Medicine of USC has taught me to only accept the highest standards while being forthcoming and endearing with research for any project. Entering into healthcare from a completely different career path has been nothing short of challenging. This change of career required me to refocus my efforts and abilities to become a team player within an office setting and learn a new dialect only known within the health care community. All the skills and knowledge I have obtained required a great amount of perseverance and dedication outside the workspace to become a successful employee. I have no doubt that the dedication my career has bestowed me with, can also be applied to my education and will help me succeed within the USC environment. With this is mind, I have come to the conclusion that I am prepared to commence my graduate education at USC in pursuit of a Master’s Degree.
The school provides professors who have real life experience in the healthcare industry so that students can not only learn what the textbook teaches, but also how to deal with real life situations that people have gone through. It is equipped with all the tools I need to make a positive impact on the world. With the healthcare industry constantly changing and constantly growing, it’s critical that students like me learn how to adapt to these changes. The Bloustein School provides all the resources necessary to keep up with the dynamic nature of healthcare. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in Health Administration, I am interested in getting an MBA in Healthcare Management. With all the resources that The Bloustein School has to offer, it will give me the foundation that I need in order to further my education, achieve my goals, and demonstrate the commitment and ambition needed to create a healthier world that is affordable for
I’ve found that my experiences laboring through three year of medical school to be surprisingly similar to learning another language. Being surrounded by patients, physicians and nurses at the beginning of my 3rd year, I quickly realized the vast amount of clinical knowledge that I have yet to master. Consequently, I found that my learning rate is nowhere quicker than on the
I have cultivated many skills throughout my undergraduate education that I believe will help me succeed throughout medical school. My decision to become a doctor did not happen overnight but was a passion that grew with me and inspired my entire life. I am eager to start my journey at Morehouse College of medicine and become a physician that provides quality treatment and works on improving health care in rural areas and underserved communities in Georgia and across the United
I have come to realize that diversity allows students to polish one another, leading to the depolarization of students and thus more rounded individuals. I have traveled a rather non-traditional path, and feel strongly that I can benefit others and feel just as strongly that I can benefit from them. The challenges I have faced, the community where I grew up, and my work experience all contribute to my individuality.
With a mission devoted to providing an unparalleled medical education to students, focused upon continuous learning, holistic care and promotion of service to disadvantaged and underserved groups, I believe Meharry Medical College School of Medicine can provide me with a rich medical experience that will lend itself well to my development as both a medical student and aspiring physician.
For my CESL project, I intend to be an instructor for the NJMS Mini-Med Program. This program holds personal significance to me as I too was a student in this program when I was a sophomore in high school. This program was my first exposure to medicine and the insights I gained, not only from the lecturers, but also from medical students, has shaped my passion medicine. Therefore, I want to give back to the program that has had such a significant impact on my life. Furthermore, before coming to NJMS, one of the most rewarding experiences of my life was teaching chemistry for a program called ODASIS at Rutgers- New Brunswick where I was able to provide resources and guidance to students from minority and underserved populations. Consequently, I want to use my experiences and affinity for teaching to introduce young students to the various topics in medicine.
One of the most attractive components rooted in the etiology of the PLME program lies in the ability to pursue a true love of learning outside the conventional medical school. The scholarly thinker in me wishes to continue growing and enriching all sides of my character, not just the one-dimensional side born of a STEM foundation, but those belonging to a broad liberal arts education.
The medical field is a career path that brings about many options and opportunities of great value. The noble idea of being a doctor tends to cloud the diligent studying and precise training that is actually required for this career. I have wanted to become a doctor since a very young age, and now that the opportunity is here for the taking, I have fully researched what it takes to succeed in this profession and various specialties of the practice. The road to a medical degree is one filled with thousands of notes, years of schooling, and many stressful nights, but the reward is one incomparable to any other. Saving people’s lives on a day-to-day basis has been one of my dreams for as long as I can remember, so the rigorous curriculum

The PCF Immersion in Community Medicine Program is a very unique opportunity and I would have great pride in being a part of this. With this I will be able to obtain direct knowledge from the doctors and also will get the experience by shadowing with them. In this program, people with financial needs or low income also get treated; I will feel great dignity by doing this.
I, Gabriella Fontinelle, was born and raised on the wonderful island of St. Lucia, Helen of the West, where I attained my best attributes of being diligent, generous, dynamic and confident. I have always dreamed of one day becoming a medical doctor and I aim greatly to achieve such. The memories of growing up in St.Lucia are indeed some of my best, from primary school recess times to secondary school sports activities. After successfully completing primary school, I was accepted into one of the St.Lucia’s four Comprehensive Secondary Schools (Vieux- Fort Comprehensive Secondary School). After completing three years at the Secondary, I choose to continue my two remaining years completing the science stream. The science stream consisted of subjects
