As an aspiring physician my preparation has been driven by motivation, intelligence and most importantly commitment. Over the course of my undergraduate education I have developed strong communications skills all while maintaining a strong work ethic. My best attribute is my willingness to help other. I am caring, compassionate, confident, cultivated and consistently eager to learn. The career path I have chosen has tested my ability to deal with uncertainty, problem solving, and most importantly helped me to distinguish my strengths and weaknesses. I have learned to manage risk and deal effectively with problems. Overall, I have developed the skills to virtually engage people.
My interest in medicine first stemmed from my freshman Biology class and my Nutrition class. I was intrigued by our studies of cells, genetics, and disease. Both courses incited a sense of awe and curiosity within me. Dissecting a frog, was the stepping-stone for my interest in medicine. Seeing the frog's heart made me wonder how the human heart worked. My research into the human heart inspired me to learn more about the medical field. I sought out volunteer opportunities that would give me insight into a doctor’s typical day. During my volunteer experience, I learned that as a doctor you experience many obstacles, including patient compliance and insurance approval issues. In my journey to pursue medicine, I learned that becoming a doctor means more than helping people, it means being the team leader, being compassionate, and most importantly being committed to the patient’s well being.
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
Adversity has only improved my tenacity, focus, endurance, and problem solving abilities. Various circumstances have affected my academic performance negatively, but I use that as motivation to continually improve myself. I want to be a part of the solution to the family physician shortage and serve the community in the most effective way. My drive to improve the lives of others will help propel me through the difficulties of medical school and beyond. The personal experience I have with my immersion in the field of primary care gives me unique characteristics that will translate into creating a successful physician that focuses on building meaningful relationships with patients. I continually witness how my grandfather is positively impacting the community through medicine and it is my goal to be granted an opportunity to do the same. My belief in lifelong learning and continual self-improvement consistently drives me towards the study of medicine. Because of my life experiences, I now have the balance, endurance, clarity, and tenacity needed to be a successful medical
Expected to build personal relationships with colleagues and superiors. (Be sure to take into account that your co-workers want to be your friends. This then helps create a “team” feeling for everyone.)
It teaches us that no matter the kind of people we meet, there is always a lesson to learn from them. Life is in phases. Each phase is to teach us a whole lot of lessons. I realized that as we learn those lessons, we are expected to apply them to our daily lives and also let others learn from what we have
Growing up in an underserved community made me realize the blessing of a quality education and good physicians. Having faced an arduous medical diagnosis has given me the ability to look at things from a special perspective. Rocky beginnings in community college accompanied by time off from school allowed me to work fulltime
As a child, the medical field has been a heightened interest of mine. Having taken classes to become and emergency medical responder, being taught CPR, watching and learning from media about emergency services, my want to excel in medicine has only increased. I feel one of the biggest purposes in my life is to understand and help others through the pain and suffering that they might be going through. I wish to develop the knowledge and the skillset to be able to help or even save those in need. In addition, I hope to help others see how successful you can be if you are passionately driven for what you do.
As a result, I am able to adapt well to a variety of work environments and instances where priorities change quickly. Often times, there are emergency situations and the office is extremely busy. In these circumstances, I motivate the team to work together and accomplish tasks effectively while being open to new ideas or opportunities. Furthermore, my experience with a variety of populations allows me to challenge myself and view health from a different perspective. For example, being in such a diverse and multicultural country, language barriers play a huge role in health care. These types of challenges aid in my professional growth because I develop skills that help me sense one's needs, provide compassion and engage in comprehensive thinking to be of service to that
I hope to enhance my overall healthcare knowledge, giving me more insight into the industry as a whole. Combining that with my current knowledge in anatomy, physiology, and the disease process, I believe this will make me a better administrator, teacher and healthcare
I have learned how to communicate with a diverse group of patients, communicate effectively, be honest with patients, and respect their beliefs and emotions. This experience has been a catalyst of personal growth for me. I will use the lessons and skills I have learned from my job to continue providing excellent comprehensive patient
Throughout my life, I have worked towards one goal which is to become a doctor. Medicine offers the opportunity for me to integrate different scopes of science while trying to improve human life. Medicine has intrigued me throughout all my life because it??s a never ending
I felt motivated about the knowledge of semiology and pathology of diseases the internists possess. In the same way I truly enjoy diagnosing challenging medical conditions.
I watched all of my friends and peers take for granted what they could do, I noticed that I was not the only one who was affected by injuries. I observed how many injuries are used to the side and become untreated. I also released many other teenagers in my school who wore amputees or had medical conditions that held them back. This is what fortified my wanting to be a doctor, specifically an Interventional Radiologist. I helped inform many of my friends and team mates of how pushing yourself past your limits sometimes may not be good for the
