Health care management
profession has always being a dream of mine. To me it’s a commitment to self,
to others and the society as a whole.
My background in Health
care assistant and a care giver in a pharmacy after graduating with BSC
Administration (Banking and Finance) gave me a sense that I treasured, that is,
to be able to serve my community diligently and efficiently in the area of
healthcare with an understanding that there an imminent need for further study
and research in health care and its governance at a local community level and
at a societal level especially in Africa- Ghana.
This foundation to I know
would guide me in obtaining a deeper perspective and excellent knowledge base,
guiding the principles of healthcare especially management in health care.
It was a great privilege
and a moment of opportunity when I came across AIU online early 2017.
I did an intensive
research on the school online and searched through it courses and frankly, I
was excited about the online degree the institution offers in HEALTHCARE
I went through the
initial follow up process and I was given a contact to help me navigate through
the admission and other process. Inasmuch as I was excited about doing the
course, I also was skeptical about online courses due to prejudices about them.
My talks with my initial
contact from AIU were extremely convincing and persuasive, all my doubt melted
I began the course
immediately after my documents were accepted and everything went smoothly. Even
though, this course was my first attempt to online schooling, I was determined
to succumb all obstacles and finish with flying colours.
I soon got comfortable
with the online school and realized that it was no different from that of the
regular schools. I was able to connect and network with my colleagues across
board online, and this was a great eye opener.
Distinctively, I would
say differentiating between the roles of my course advisor and supervisor was a
bit confusing and ambiguous for me, however, communications with both of them
were prompt and very efficient.
In my part of the world
(Africa), the irregularity in accessing internet is prevalent and poses as a
setback for most online activities. This made it tedious mostly for me to be on
time with assignments and fee payments and also communication with my advisor
and supervisor but they had patience for me through all these difficult
Videos and examples on
the school site were sometime not comprehensive to me but again, my advisor and
supervisor were always there with an immediate help.
My intermittent internships
and this degree with AIU have introduced me to cooperate governance which
offers a bigger picture to higher levels of healthcare community development
My study and research
courses with this prestigious institution has opened my intellectual ability to
have an accession that, the issues of healthcare management have mainly been
poor leadership ,baised, lack of good health policies and inadequate allocation
of resources and poor emphasis on human human and development.
The responsibility to
help resolve these socio economic and healthcare setbacks has provided a
motivation for me through my study in AIU.
I am proud and confident
to say I am a happy alumnus of AIU. My overall experience with the institution
has been a top notch.
I believe I am adequately
equipped to change the status-quo in the health sector of my country, Africa
and beyond with knowledge acquired from AIU. I will gladly recommend this great
institution to the world.
