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.
