Changes in the industry have created a broad array of new opportunities for professionals with advanced training in public health. I chose healthcare management to examine and evaluate issues and trends, at the same time feel empowered to influence the destiny of our healthcare system. I chose healthcare management due to my desire to ensure premium patient care. To maximize these choices, I am pursuing the Doctorate of Health Administration. Such a degree will prepare me to effectively demonstrate competencies in this dynamic and ever-changing health care industry.
The experiences I have gained over the last seven years, while working in diverse healthcare settings, has given me a broad professional base from which to build upon. While working in transitional care at Kindred I learned the value of alternative care delivery for seniors, the importance of public trust and consumer confidence, the reasons for which policies and regulations guide patient care, and the execution of quality services through the attraction and retention of competent staff. While working in a hospital environment like Georgetown Hospital System, I learned the value of surpassing our patient’s customer service expectations, the value of state of the art technology within our community, the need for quality education initiatives, and a greater understanding of future trends in healthcare and the impact these trends will have on the organization. Each phase of my career has become a journey in which I learn more about myself as a person and as a professional.
Long-term, I am resolute in my goal to become a healthcare administrator. Finding the right organization to accommodate this goal will be key in allowing for continued growth as a professional. While working in different areas of that chosen organization, I want to be an active participant in achieving hospital-wide strategic goals, while simultaneously drawing upon the expertise of current leaders. I want to offer this organization; years of professional experience from opportunities I have engaged in and through experience gained, which offered new insight and depth to my learning. I want to bring with me the contributions made by present and past employers, as they have challenged me to progress to heightened levels of understanding in healthcare.
Understanding that this is the beginning of a rewarding career in healthcare management, my career goals are simple. I am looking for an administrative position that will enable me to continue to grow and develop in a successful organization that offers opportunities for advancement, has low turnover, excellent patient care, and high job satisfaction. My passion for learning is continual and my standards for professionalism can be observed through my hard work and dedication. I continue to seek learning opportunities through work, education, community service, and through life as it presents itself.
I am a strong candidate for the right organization because of my ability to synthesize complex concepts, my strong background in healthcare, and my ability to work collaboratively with others in the field, my strong commitment to the profession, unfaltering ambition, and a constant drive to help others.
