Each of the individual is striving to obtain sympathy, care & love to remind them the beauty that life has to offer & to give them hope that they are capable of transforming their entire life.

My experience as a medical assistant working closely with a physician for about a year has provided me with essential skills such as: recording and updating patient’s information into the chart, obtaining vital signs, knowing the chief complaint, concerns & allergies, and preparing reports by summarizing the information discussed during the patient’s visit. Being able to watch how the physician interacts with his patients has helped me understand and know how to establish rapport with patients and establish a physician-patient relationship.

  • ASG outreach chair Leadership

As a student at Irvine Valley College, I held a leadership position in Associated Student Government. My position was Outreach Coordinator, but I extended my role by keeping our committee active and organizing more group activities. I planned a Christmas donation drive for children, cultural ceremonies, and other events for students. I also planned retreats and leadership camps for student campus leaders. I also went to freshman classes and spoke to them about the opportunities they have in campus, and gave an insight into how they can succeed.

International Mathematics Competition

in high school, our school participated in both physics and IMC ( International Math Competition) and they selected me as their representative. I attended many review meetings and presented the goals of our group. I also arranged all the student meetings and helped to provide required materials. I also arranged meetings between the professors and students in order for them to share their ideas and learn from each other. This experience has taught me a lot of new skills such as being more settled and organized in the things that I do and faithful and devoted to my goals.

 

Type: Teaching/Tutoring/Teaching Assistant

I served as a Teaching Assistant (TA) for Mathematics and General Chemistry. As a TA, I attended class with the students, graded assignments, and held office hours and study sessions. Through my position as a TA, I learned patience and worked with each student at his or her own pace. I came up with new ways to explain concepts that were suited to each student’s learning style. Their responsiveness and the look on their faces when they first understood a concept was the most rewarding aspect of the job. I will strive to facilitate patient education as a physician, making sure that a patient leaves the clinic well informed with all of their questions answered regarding their healthcare needs.
