ThanksBeing a physician for more than seven years taught me how caring about patients can change the preceptivity of life in a dramatically rich way. In early June 1998, one of my patients, Tom, came to my office with abdominal pain and emesis for one week. After several blood works and radiological studies, I came to the conclusion that Tom has advanced pancreatic cancer with metastasis to Esophagus and liver. After several meeting with group of surgeons and radiologists, we came across a palliative surgery without any chance to cure the cancer. Several supportive and professional meetings hold to educate Tom that surgery will just suppress the symptoms for a short period of time. Tom started losing his trust at first, but supportive group work so passionately that finally brought him to the center of his life again. He trusted his care group and happily requested for immediate surgery. After surgery he started gaining his 45 pounds weight that he had being lost over several weeks. His symptoms had completely gone. Tom became so passionate about his life and his family that amazed everyone. Tom admitted that the last several month of his life was the most joyful time in his entire life. That is one of the stories that always motivates me to continue being passionate about my healthcare career in spite of all difficulties in this pathway.I want to become a Physician Assistant to provide excellent healthcare for my patients. With all my experiences inside and outside of the United States, I strongly believe that I will make a great physician assistant. Thank you in advance for giving me this opportunity to present my dream goal!
