Raza P. Beg Statement of purpose 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 as well as the lives of his patients and employees. These experiences have motivated me to try to make a similar impact. I am the first and only member of a large family to have served in the military. I want to be the first to have earned a masters degree. I have a need to serve as a role model for other family members as well as be an example to young people in my life. This is part of the reason why I would like to continue my education on to the Ph.D. level after earning the Master’s degree, as well as perhaps someday having the opportunity to teach Healthcare Administration. As an American, I am especially concerned with healthcare issues facing the United States today, and would like to be able to contribute to providing our country with solutions. I want to thank you very much for your consideration of my application.

There I especially enjoyed developing relationships with managers from many departments as I assisted them with financial reports and budget information. Although I aspired to have enough experience one day to be eligible for an administrative role in a clinical area, my job provided a great opportunity to learn about the inner workings of the…

    I wasn’t terribly sure what I wanted to do with my life, nor did I have any idea how to get where I thought I wanted to be. My relative lack of passion wasn’t seen as a deterrent in my affluent Texas town, though, as it was a place where nearly all high school students went on to college—it was the only option we really considered or that was presented to us by our families, teachers, and counselors as a post-graduation plan. So I began the requisite search by looking first at nontraditional college environments, for while I had done reasonably well at my large and impersonal public high school, nor had I flourished either. It seemed to me that if I was going to spend the next four years of my life in school, I might as well try a different tactic than the one that had allowed me to coast rather unremarkably through high school.…

    Many people around the world want to build a career in Optics and Photonics and I am just one of them but I am different from others because of my eternal enthusiasm to study in this area. I started to dream about photonics and optical systems when I was at secondary school. In high school I started drawing optical systems. This made me more and more eager to study about optics and photonics. Step by step I was starting to make the little boy’s dream come true. After high school I decided to study Material Science or Physics to become more familiar with optic and photonic components. I started studying Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering at Sakarya University Engineering Faculty at 2004. At university, I was selected student of honors for 4 times. I was a quite active student here and I became the chairman of the Material Science and Engineering Club. More important is that I started to improve my skills about photonics. That’s why, TUBITAK ( Turkish National Scientific and Technical Research Center) Materials Institute was very good place for me, so I started to do my training there in Electron Microscopy and XRD-Spectroscopy Laboratories. In TUBITAK I focused on spectroscopy techniques, photonics systems, photonic detection and characterization. Compulsory official training time was 1 month but I extended the time to 5 months for my self. My training result was (AA – in German System 1.0) excellent. Furthermore as a compulsory engineering design project I worked on Silicon-GermaniumNitrogen nanocables.…
