The greatest healer of all time was Jesus Christ. He was the epitome of the best qualities that a healer has to be. I am not saying that I will be like Jesus Christ when I finally become a doctor in the future, what I am implying though, is that a medical doctor who does not believe in religion is not going to be a strong and steadfast healer once he comes into contact with adversity in his patient’s treatment.
So, you can imagine the heartwarming joy I felt once I discovered that the Georgetown University School of Medicine is run in the tradition of the Jesuit priests. Just like the mission and vision of the school, I too believe in cura personalis. It will be impossible to heal a person if the doctor does not understand how the whole being of a person must first be healed before the rest of his system follows suit.
It is this shared belief that has led to me being drawn to the gates of the Georgetown Medical University gates. I look forward to my future admittance into the university when I will be trained under the watchful eye of professionals who will help me understand the importance and meaning of cura personalis in terms of my profession. Of all the universities where I have made inquiries into the teaching curricula, I must admit that the best explanation of the terms and conditions of my medical training will best be met by the highly exacting standards of the Georgetown University School of Medicine.
I look forward to my future admittance into the university and the beginning of my training. Hopefully, I shall be able to perform and deliver the highest level of integrated knowledge in regards to certain topics while displaying my skill and ethics as a compassionate physician who is dedicated to the service of humanity.
Of course, I will be at a loss as to how to achieve my medical ambitions if I do not learn to integrate the knowledge and understanding of a person’s psychological, spiritual, and social well-being. This is why I think that I must be admitted to Georgetown Medical University. I believe that no other school will be able to help me lay the groundwork for the commitment necessary to become clinically competent in today’s society.
Due to the religious undertakings of the university, I understand and realize that as a future graduate of Georgetown, I will be expected to aid in the medical needs of those in need of medical care, but without the ability to pay, in our society. I believe that this will not be hard for me to do because my professors will help me understand the philosophy behind the beliefs of the Jesuits priests in terms of medical care for the underprivileged. Needless to say, I am looking forward to being able to successfully merge my faith in god with the scientific technology that helps science perform miracles.
In the end, I am looking forward to being admitted to Georgetown University School of Medicine because it is the only school that shares the same beliefs that I do when it comes to mixing religion and health care. Meaning to say, I would not have much faith in the healing abilities of a doctor if he was unable to show me that he has faith in the divine healing powers of believing in God and his miracles. As a future graduate of the Georgetown University School of Medicine, I am looking forward to being given a chance to become a faith-centered doctor. I believe that all patients would appreciate being prayed over by their doctor in order to reinforce their belief in the healing process and this is what the school will be able to train and hone me into accomplishing.
