The interaction of human physiology has intriguedme from a young age and I have been drawn to the medical field as it offersattractive opportunities to apply skills and personal qualities that I considerI possess. Nothing interests me more than knowing what happens inside of an individual’sbody and radiography allows me to see what happens beneath the screen. I have a love of technology and science and Iam completely fascinated by the sheer complexity of the work of technologicaladvancements within the medical work of radiographers. I enjoy puttingknowledge I have learnt into something practical and useful and as a highlyambitious student I can be relied upon to carry out my duties in an efficient andrespectful manner.
Working in diagnostic radiography will allow meto carry out important tasks with skill and precision allowing a direct visiblebenefit to people. Spending time throughout my second year of sixth form at theQueen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham has assured me that becoming a diagnosticradiographer is the right choice for me. I have been involved in many workexperiences at the QE, in different departments interacting with patients inthe different wards as part of my volunteering opportunity and spending some ofmy time at the radiography department.
This gave me an understanding of how theNHS system works the vital work that support services, radiography and medicalultrasound. I noticed this throughout my one-day taster day in the radiographydepartment where I was able to experience a whole day in hospital and shadow aradiologist. The experience allowed me to gain insight into my future work. Atmy work experience at the pharmacy I observed many skills, the collation of medicine,storage, importance of dosage and placing pharmaceutical orders. I learnt a lotof practical skills and was able to improve working pressure as I had toprepare prescriptions and medication.I am committed and a self-manager; I have beenpracticing martial arts for the past 3 years which has helped me not justphysically but has guided me mentally. It is has helped my confidence massivelyallowing me to interact with people a lot easier and has improved my team workskills. Working at Debenhams has enabled me to gain experience.
It has enhanceda vast number of skills which include; my communication, motivational andinterpersonal skills which have developed through many various tasks. In secondary school I was the head girl where Iassumed several responsibilities which required precision and professionalism.I was involved in leading assemblies and organising events for the school.
Itenabled me to learn methods of critical thinking and gaining broad,multi-faceted knowledge which may benefit my career in multidisciplinarymeetings and case conferences. In sixth form I like to be involved in manyways. Within my role as a prefect, I have been proactively involved inorganising open days. I lead assemblies and support students in lessons in thelower school, mainly focussing on year 11 to help them reach their target 5 forcombined sciences. In addition, at all open events and Parents evenings it ismy responsibility to tour the parents around the sixth form and answer anyquestions about the courses available. I am fluent in arabic and French and livingin a multi-ethic society I know it will benefit me.
I believe that I have a professional manner indealing with people at all levels, as well as a vast understanding of thedifferent scientific backgrounds. I enjoy caring for others and working withnew people every day. I know that radiography will be the most fulfillingcareer choice for me. I would love the opportunity to be heavily involved inthe health and treatment of people.
To be a successful radiographer, one mustbe caring, dedicated and inquisitive. I believe these are some of the qualitiesI possess, and I am certain that by studying radiography I can accomplish mydreams and contribute to the society.
