Doctors Degree in Pharmacy
The desire to study pharmacy has been a rootage for my motivation for quite a considerable amount of time now. Professedly, I have lived a life helping people and ever since high school, I have spent a considerable amount of time doing voluntary work directly related to healthcare. Through volunteering at two health centers including a nursing home and also being a Home Health Aide, I have grown considerably as a person and have also learned to appreciate the importance of being caring and compassionate towards people.
Being a forward minded student, and after the realization that that pharmacy was the best profession for me perhaps because of the unique manner in which it brings together the study of human care and human system, I started taking classes that would ensure that I have the best knowledge and experience as a pharmacist. In college I majored in Biology, Chemistry, and math. These subjects were overly utilitarian in helping me develop the required observation and analytical skills that are overly essential in the pharmacy profession. Pointedly, I have always been in readership of materials that are related to pharmacy. The overriding information in most of the materials that I have read is the importance of observation and analytical skills considering that the profession entails a lot of observations and analyses. Admittedly, these subjects have so far instilled all-important observation and analytical skills coupled with skills essential for conducting experiments and reporting experimental results.
I must also point out that I am not attracted to this profession due to its relatively attractive stipendiary nature, but I am attracted to the profession because I am intrinsically motivated to help people. As noted earlier, I have a rich profile of voluntary work. I have volunteered as a Pharmacy Assistant for Interfaith Medical Center-Brooklyn, NY. I have also volunteered in a Respiratory Care Unit, Nursing Unit, and Donor Registration Assistant and Safety monitor for various organizations across New York. Being involved in voluntary work presented me with an opportunity to interact with patients suffering from various ailments first hand. I was particularly sparked with the pharmacist assistant position as it presented with a much needed chance to experience what it means to become a pharmacist; the experience was memorable and only served to cement my deathless desire to become a pharmacist. The voluntary positions together with the job placements that I have held before (Home Health Aid, Library Assistant, and Office Assistant) have greatly helped me improve my communication skills. I understand that for any pharmacist, effective communication skills are indispensable since without these, one is not able to communicate with the patients. Currently I posses effectual communication skills (both written and spoken) that enable me communicate effectively with all and sundry. Additionally, the placements as well as the voluntary opportunities helped realize the importance of building special relationships and trust with all the patients; I understand that Service delivery in pharmacy is grossly dependent such special relationships and trust with patients.
