In short, I see the role of physicians in society as multifunctional: they are not only doctors who heal, they are also leaders, innovators, social scientists, and patriots. Although my path to medical school has not always been the most direct, my varied and circuitous journey has given me a set of skills and experiences that many otherwise qualified applicants lack. I have no doubt that the next ten years will be similarly unpredictable, but I can assure you that no matter what obstacles I face, my goal will remain the same. I sincerely hope to begin the next phase of my journey at Brown University. Thank you for your kind attention.
Outsourcing disrupts education evident with the college students shunning to pursue high-tech fields and opting for business oriented courses. Students are concerned that by pursuing these course coupled with instability in the labor market they face risks of losing out due to outsourcing. Studies show the proportion of graduates planning to major in computer science or engineering is now 70% below its peak in the early 1980s (Santos 87). With companies shipping IT operations to countries such as India and China, these countries are capitalizing by investing heavily in education and training to continue to attract, retain best talents, and maintain competitive edge in the global IT industry.
