Statement of purpose
I am writing this statement in support of my application to study towards the Master of Health Administration degree at the University of Memphis. I came to Memphis in September of 2005 because of a work opportunity. I had no idea what I was in for. Since then I have fallen in love with the city of Memphis, the people of Memphis, and the University of Memphis. I have no desire to study elsewhere and this is why I have chosen to apply to the MHA program at The University of Memphis. I will have earned my bachelors degree in Health Services Administration from The University of Memphis by the end of the fall 2009 semester. My long term goal is to become a Hospital Administrator. I love to learn and advance academically. I would also very much like to someday attain my Ph.D. Health Administration. I am a bilingual native speaker of English and Urdu. I am confident that being fully bilingual will continue to prove useful to me professionally, especially since if I enter the military as an officer.
I have 5 years of experience in the military as a department head of dental clinics as well as 6 years of experience of being a multi-location manager for Circuit City. My work experience and education have helped me to develop excellent organizational and communication skills with patients, physicians, and the medical community. I am also acquainted with the local medical community. I performed an internship at the Church Health Center and worked as an eligibility clerk at the V.A. Hospital. I also have been selected for the Memphis Institute of Leadership Excellence Program at the University of Memphis. My mentor is David Hogan the Executive Vice President of Baptist Memorial Healthcare. I have learned much about the field of Healthcare Administration from him. I especially enjoy learning about the ways that David uses his communication skills to and abilities to impact his organization...
