Write an internal reflection on how shadowing a physician changed me or changed my outlook on medicine as a career.
I just need to write an internal reflection on how my year has went so far. This is like “how did this activity make you feel” and “how has it changed me as a person.” Bullshit basically. I am a college student who is writing a class reflection on certain healthcare related activities that I have done this year. I would like the paper be structured around three examples and how did they affected me.
DON”T write intro/conclusion – Just an essay about this these three examples.
Example 1: I shadowed a chaplain priest at a Hospital who consoled a dying patient in his last moments (sad moment — make it powerful). I was their with 5 of his family members 30 minutes before they were going to remove his ventilator. Idea is how has this experience changed you or affected you.
Example 2: I volunteered for a community health fair that discussed women’s/men’s health, HIV, dental, Obesity. I found out that a lot of these people that went to this fair really had very limited knowledge about these subjects. It made me think that for a possible future career in medicine, it is important to educate the community about these common ailments, b/c the community lacks the knowledge. For example, the people didn’t know anything about when to go to the doctor and also had no idea how to eat a proper diet.
Example 3: How shadowing a physician changed me or changed my outlook on medicine as a career. I shadowed an ER physician and saw how the level of care the doctor provided to every patient. She treated homeless patients with the same level of compassion. I guess you could write about witnessing the doctor care for the patient on a deep level influenced me to do the same in the future (potentially).
