I was raised in a third world country where only few people living in major cities had access to health care, whereas the majority residing in suburbs and rural areas struggled to find a doctor. I believe that health care should be accessible to everyone regardless of his or her
I have been given many opportunities to help others and make an impact in Johnson City through organizations like the Family Medicine Interest Group at ETSU, serving as the coordinator for student involvement in free clinics. I have also been able to make an impact through medicine in Cleveland, TN by way of the Good Samaritan Clinic. This is a free clinic in downtown Cleveland that I have been volunteering at for the past seven years. I have also been directly involved in the start-up of the Just Care clinic in Mountain City, TN, a medical student ran free clinic in rural Appalachia. I was also been able to spend time in rural Guatemala with a medical team from my undergraduate university helping diagnose, treat, and care for patients whom receive little to no regular healthcare. From my own first hand experiences in both Guatemala and my time spent in the Just Care and Good Samaritan Clinics, I have seen the impact that an inadequate health care system can have on a population. I hope to use my medical and public health training in areas that do not have adequate access to health
I have chosen to apply to UCSF School of Pharmacy because of its unique 3-year program. This accelerated, year-round program will allow me to enter advanced training or my practice earlier. The Pharm.D. program of UCSF focuses on patient care using the latest innovation and scientific developments, which will give me more opportunities to expertize my knowledge and fundamental skills, to gain clinical experience, and to prepare myself for my transition from a student to a professional in the field. In addition, the pharmacy curriculum at UCSF provides students the chance to work on in-depth projects about topics that interest them. This active learning method appeals to me because it will give me the chance to improve my critical thinking and
The invaluable skills that I have gained and learned through my after school clubs, Future Business Leaders of America, (FBLA) and National Honor Society( NHS), has stirred up a desire in me to help my community and to make a difference in the lives of people, by majoring in the
I am applying to the Carver College of Medicine because of its commitment to meeting community needs and advancing medicine through research. Growing up in a rural Midwestern community with hundreds of uninsured residents has helped me to understand the importance of meeting community needs. Until 2010, emergency rooms were the primary source of medical care for many uninsured residents; therefore, concerned medical professionals opened the C.A.R.E. Clinic for the uninsured. As a 5 year clinic volunteer, I have witnessed the improvement of the mental and physical health of these hard working uninsured citizens. I also saw the success of medical professionals and community members coming together to solve an important problem. In addition, through organometallic and lupus research I learned the importance of critical questioning, hypothesizing, and analytical thinking. Refining these skills for patient diagnosis and medical advancement is essential to becoming a successful physician. Therefore, I believe the strong Medical Student Research program will give me this opportunity. I would be honored to work with physicians such as Dr. Bishop on intestinal diseases, because I have seen how IBD can decrease quality of life. Dr. Wehby’s work on the economics of healthcare is also fascinating to me as an economics major as it

In the case of Shahine vs. Louisiana State University Medical Center, the plaintiff Ms. Shahine experienced right ulnar nerve damage following a right total hip arthroplasty. She filed suit against the University Medical Center and her anesthesiologist, Dr. W for medical malpractice and requested the court to infer negligence under the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur. Dr. W was fully responsible for Ms. Shahine’s care while she was under anesthesia and Ms. Shahine obviously could not assess the true cause of injury while she was anesthetized. However, Dr. W provided evidence of non-negligence by thoroughly charting in Ms. Shahine’s medical record proper positioning and padding. Another anesthesiologist provided the court with uncontroverted

Besides growing up in Colorado and considering this state my home I’m interested in RVUCOM because of the unique educational opportunities it provides to its students. In particular, I’m hoping to study in the Global Medicine Honors Track because I am interested in developing and furthering healthcare infrastructure in places like India, a country that is close to my heart. As the world becomes even more interconnected and easier to travel around, it’s highly conceivable to serve both the Front Range and places across the globe with the same high quality care. My superordinate goal in this area is to help develop cost-effective education programs and preventative methods that work well and improve quality of life irrespective of geography and
In 2011, I traveled to my hometown in Haiti to reconnect with friends and family. It was great to be back home and I got to enjoyed the food, music and spend quality time with family. What stood out the most during this trip was I witnessed nurses and doctors giving out medicine, vaccines and providing medical advice to the community. Seeing this prompted me to approach the doctors, who informed me of Doctors without Borders, an organization I would like to volunteer with once I become a physician. I agree with their mission and want to be part of a world-wide humanitarian organization.
Maggie Gill started her career with Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC) in 2004 as the VP of managed care and finance. In 2005, she became MUMC's COO, and then in 2011, she was named CEO and president by the board of directors, once they realized that the ideal candidate for the position, one who had experience in both finance and operations, was already employed by the health care facility.
Marketing Strategy and Environment: Environmental Scan A Marketing strategy is necessary to develop and implement for all health care organizations. Rush University Medical Center in Chicago learned this lesson in the most difficult circumstances. The leadership assumed the reputation of the facility would be enough to stand up against all other health care facilities in the surrounding area; supplementary publicity or lobbying was necessary. As time passed on, it was very obvious by the drastic decrease in patient census and revenue that something had to change. The implementation of an environmental scan in that particular instance would greatly influence the facility in a positive manner. It is an approach that assists in the process of identifying and recognizing all the marketing elements involved. The first step of the environmental scan is an assessment of the five major environmental forces and trends. Next, evaluate the potential impact on the organization’s target market and adjust the organizations marketing mix strategy as appropriate (Berkowitz, 2011).

Key Insight to Global Health I have always been aware of global issues and needing to understand what is happening in the world has always been important to me. However, I never understood global concerns through a health paradigm. Many of the concepts presented in this course were not new to me, as I have been an active participant in global issues and organizations, such as Spread the Net Campaign to end malaria, as well as many different human rights causes. However, the new insight I gained was in regards to
