Importance Of Social Roles In Education

Good Essays
Because of my passion for healthcare, I have numerous social roles relating to the field. Most importantly, I have a social role of being a pre-medical undergraduate student at Loyola University Chicago, a university which is known for their pre-professional health care programs. As a student, I have a social script of educating myself in order to obtain a beneficial career in the future. Through the help of the professors, teacher’s assistants, classmates, and tutoring sessions that are present at Loyola, I am able to fulfill my social script of providing myself a sturdy foundation into the medical field. Through these “trainings,” I know how to work hard in order to achieve success in my prerequisite classes for medical school. By the social scripts presented to me by the Loyola staff, I make sure that my education is my top priority. Moreover, I have extracurricular activities that help to strengthen my foundation in the healthcare field. This past summer, I volunteered at Northwest Community Hospital where I helped out at the nurses’ station of the rehabilitation unit by answering call lights and doctors calls and by paging the appropriate nurses and PCTs (patient care technicians). Furthermore, I volunteered at the Visitor’s Entrance front desk where I was able to sign patients in and out, direct them towards the rooms of their loved ones, deliver flowers and other packages, and help discharge the patients.
