Women empowerment and equality: The position and status of women in India is low. Though, our constitution has guaranteed equal rights to every citizen of India, still many of women are deprived of their rights. The India of my dream will strengthen and empower women. The women would play greater role in the overall economic decisions for the betterment of our country. There will be more women pilots, doctors, soldiers, officers and teachers. The society will stop objectifying women. The birth of a girl child will be celebrated. Girls will be encouraged to go to schools. My dream India will be free from gender-bias and inequality.
Working side-by-side with the PA over the past year, has allowed me to truly grasp the extent of the level of knowledge and skillset required of a PA. She divulges in her work; changing gastrostomy tubes, treating both bleeding and leaking stoma sites, comforting patients with genuine empathy; a true master of her craft. I am amazed at the level of autonomy in the PA’s daily routine; being able to develop treatment plans for patients, performing procedures and making recommendations. When situations arise that require the physician’s expertise, he is only a phone call away. From their conversations, it is obvious the physician and PA have a very close relationship built on mutual respect and trust. I gained a very clear understanding of the physician-PA relationship and the communication necessary to effectively provide the best patient care.
