I want to go into public health because I believe strongly that I can contribute not only to my fellow Americans, but also to people all over the world. I anticipate that through proper planning, interventions and implementation of effective policies, one will be able to bring about much-needed change through my work with an NGO or non-profit affiliated with the UN. I started to explore the different fields of medicine by working as a Medical Scribe in the Emergency Department, ER tech in Trauma Centers, getting involved in research, volunteering at hospitals and taking high level science classes. This will enhance my knowledge and experience i... ... middle of paper ... .../programs, research, community, and world health issues. All of my interests have been merged into one magical puzzle through Public Health.
When I first started college, my view of a health care professional was a transparent overview of the field and their duties. I knew what they did, but at that time I didn’t understand why. Becoming a health educator is easier said than done, and with the knowledge comes a great responsibility. Health education as defined by the World Health Organization is “the process of enabling people to increase control over their health and its determinants, and thereby improve their health’. That is noteworthy, yet at the same time, a very board definition.
I learned about the effects of relaxation techniques on mental and physical health. I discovered that there are many therapeutic alternatives that can be used as either healthier replacements for pharmaceuticals or as co-treatments with pharmaceuticals to bolster their effectiveness. My 2014 internship with the Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board further developed my interest in the field of public health. I worked as a mental health and substance abuse case manager assistant. My job included completing necessary paperwork as w... ... middle of paper ... ...successful business, but I may also succeed in discovering innovative solutions for improving health.
My training in Public Health emphasized evidence-based programming and outcomes as being highly regarded and the best practices for developing public health initiatives. During my MPH training, program statistics classes provided me with a better understanding of the underlying assumptions associated with statistical testing, and helped me to adapt this knowledge to simulated problem sets. Moreover, I experienced the utility of data analysis to address community health problems while assisting with the Delavan-Grider project. The Delavan-Grider project was designed to improve the health of the community adjacent to the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). I participated in community meetings and disseminated brochures detailing the outcome of a community health assessment.
This program is unique because of the specialized BME classes, because it integrates our BME senior design project and because of the opportunities only found in Denmark. Thus, Denmark’s Technical University (DTU) will help me achieve my academic and profession goals and will make me a well-rounded engineer which will further enable me to succeed in improving the health of people and communities. My academic goals for my time at Purdue are to obtain a Biomedical Engineering degree with a specific focus in medical devices and tissue engineering. Not only this is highly engaging and fascinating but succeeding on this career path has a direct impact on the people’s health and quality of life. A well rounded Biomedical Engineer is able to plan, execute and deliver innovative solution to today’s medical problems such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and brain imbalances, through devices such stents, insulin pumps or brain stimulators.
Then as I start my medical administration career I can work toward earning a master’s degree online. Which, online courses are quite common now days for master’s and doctorate’s degree programs “In the past few years, online degree programs in the field of public health have seen significant growth.” (“World Wide Learn, 2016). Because, those who pursue them are working full-time in the public health field, this gives an opportunity for full-time workers to earn a higher degree part-time. Also, during this research I found an article that discussed public health social worker, this appealed to me because of the aspect of being able to work in developing countries helping others and being able to travel sparked my interest. A social workers career in public health could be my alternate option, but my career goal as of right now is still pursuing administration.
I am interested in doing research in mother child dyads and measure to improve their mental health, child abuse and HIV/AIDS, which goes parallel to Prof. Julianna and Prof. Sylvia Guendelman research interests. I aspire to have a positive impact by sharing my medicine experience and bicultural background to the student body. I look forward to studying and research at UC
As I reflect on my path through the MPH program, it is hard to believe how far I came, how much I learned, and how this well-designed, multi-disciplinary, professional course has changed my perspectives on health and well-being. My initial decision to apply for the MPH program in the University of Saskatchewan was simply because of my background in medicine, and my desire to contribute to people’s health at the population level, especially among the marginalized and underserved groups. My mission is to utilize the knowledge and skills I learned through my MPH graduate studies to make a difference in the public health field. I am passionate about engagement with disadvantaged and marginalized populations to learn about their needs and assets,
