Medical science significantly improves living standards and constantly transforms how we perceive the world. I truly appreciate the advancements and impact of medical science after someone I love was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was distraught when I learned about my mother’s diagnosis of breast cancer as numerous women, including my own family, have tragically succumbed to the treatments and consequences of this disease. However, thanks to the efforts and diligence of healthcare providers, she received an early diagnosis from her annual mammogram screening, allowing her to bypass a more advanced stage of cancer. This event fueled my desire to pursue a career that plays a critical role in detecting, diagnosing, and treating patient diseases. I have expanded my skill set through my academic and hands-on experiences whilst pursuing my AS in Biological Sciences with an emphasis on Health Science and participation in the HealthPATH Internship at Highland Hospital. I wish to expand my knowledge and experiences through my studies in a Diagnostic Medical Imaging Program with a Concentration in Cardiovascular systems at an accredited institution in order to make my own contributions to this dynamic field. The sonography sector will constantly evolve in its continually growing methodologies and medical knowledge, as I have learned through my experience as a Biomedical Engineer at UC Davis. When I started college at UC Davis, I had the ambition and skill to excel in such a fast-paced setting, despite my minimal knowledge and experience in the healthcare system. It was not long before I began to learn the significance of medical devices in the healthcare field. Unfortunately, I departed from UC Davis due to financial troubles during the pandemic. Still, I carried with me that ambition as I took the initiative to continue my studies at Chabot College. It was hard to overcome so many challenges throughout the pandemic, but nevertheless, I persisted. As time progressed, I realized that what I actually wanted to do was be able to work with patients one-on-one by operating medical devices rather than designing and manufacturing them. Daily tasks require regular collaboration with other healthcare professionals in a healthcare setting. I’ve exhibited my ability to work in a team-driven atmosphere through collaborative projects with my classmates and instructors to achieve a mutual goal as well as working with staff at the Cardiology department in Highland Hospital. Working in a hospital setting environment solidified my appreciation of the fundamentals of various principles including electrophysiology, rhythm interpretation, ultrasound physics, stress tests, and cardiac pharmacology. Additionally, I am confident in embarking on my pursuit of a Cardiovascular/ECHO Technician certification at an accredited institution, which I can then use to apply my level of attention and compassion in caring for people. Healthcare is an exciting field that aligns with my interests and goals to work in a medical setting with the potential of becoming an ECHO Technician. Institutions such as UC Davis, Chabot College, and Highland Hospital have and will continue to provide me with the essential theoretical and practical skills to thrive in the complex and ever-changing healthcare environment. I aspire to learn from the knowledgeable faculty in these exemplary institutions and apply my critical thinking skills in class and at an affiliated hospital. In addition, it will be rewarding to contribute to doctors’ patient-health decisions by preparing patients for examinations and performing ultrasounds of the heart. I am passionate about patient care and know my academic and work experiences will prepare me for this career.
