My goal for project number 3 is to learn about what it takes to become a psychiatrist and how you become. The information I dug up from the internet and books were really fascinated and I hope this encourages others to become a psychiatrist or any other kind doctor.
I wanted to create an essay about the traits of what it takes to become a physician. I first started off by naming the three traits about what it takes to become a physician. It takes the will to become a strong life-learner, have strong persistent, and have strong patience. I then continued to share about how a person will have to continue to learn about what a physician does during their career. New things come to the medical field all the time so it's important to learn about them as things go. I also wrote about what other doctors thought about what they believe what a psychiatrist is and why. I even read the book called Sybil which is about a girl who has 16 personalities and a psychiatrist is trying to help her figure out how to stop the 16 personalities from coming back. The last part of my english portion was creating a presentation on Thinglink.com that represents the hardships and successes of both Sybil and the psychiatrist.
I think I was very sporadic with the english portion, but I enjoyed reading the book and learning other doctors opinions about what a physician really is. I think this part of the project really encouraged me to study in the medical field. I had a little of trouble with organization during the essay and the presentation on Thinglink.com. I corrected my errors and I now think my essay is amazing and my presentation on Thinglink.com is amazing.
I think reading Sybil really helped me figure out what a psychiatrist may do in their career. They can work with patients with a variety of diseases and the psychiatrist would need to figure out and prescribe them medication in order to eliminate the mental illness.
I looked up many images of psychiatrists, drugs, famous art pieces, hospitals, and other objects a psychiatrist may see in the medical field. Some of things psychiatrist have to deal with is crazy patients who don't know how to control themselves. One of the pictures I chosen really popped out at me. Many pieces of the art told stories, or represented something in a unique way.
For the first picture, I researched about people who had mental illnesses like Courbet. This artwork talks about a man who had a mental illness and he felt like a madman. He would have weird expressions on his face. In this picture, a man named Courbet is known as a madman because his face is ecstatic and terrified. His desperate state of mind isn't a silly old sickness, but it seems to be a badge of artistic pride. In the traditions back in the Durer's Melancholia, but though it reached new power in the Romantic age, he had personalities of a genius and madness. He would have desperation and he would have risky behavior, drink, and have drugs that he would overdose with.=
For the second artwork, I researched about the first African American Psychiatrist and his name was James M. Smith James M. Smith was born in 1813 and became a physician and abolitionist. He lived in New York city and went to the school called African Free School. He had the intelligence to go to American colleges, but wasn't aloud to because he's black. Instead of going to a American college, he went to Glasgow University in Scotland in 1832 and earned a Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree, and Doctor in Medicine Degree. He was also involved with the Scottish ant-slavery movement which gave him his reputation. After he finished his internship in Paris, he came back to New York and started a medical practice pharmacy. He was a very important psychiatrist because he was the very first African American getting a first degree-holding as a physician in the city's Black community. He would also give to many charities and he was fully committed to abolitionism. This gave him national recognition.
The third artwork I chose to research was an old piece of art that shared about a king who was considered a weird and crazy man in his kingdom. King Charles didn't start having symptoms until 1392 when he suffered from a terrible fever and seizures. After awhile, he would start to have periodic attacks of insanity which would last several months. While this was going on, he would forget his name, the fact of him being the king of France, and that he had a wife with children. He even acted like he was made go glass and he would suddenly shatter if someone saw him. He decided to get iron rods on his clothing to make sure he wouldn't break. The strangest thing he would do is howl like a wolf around the castle. Scientist believe he suffered from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or encephalitis. His doctor did their best to cure him by drilling small holes into his. Sadly, this didn't work and his son-in-law was then placed as king of France. It talks about the king of France who may have had schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or encephalitis. even though his doctors didn't succeed, modern day doctors would have treated him and probably would have fixed his mental illness and his fate.King Charles didn't start having symptoms until 1392 when he suffered from a terrible fever and seizures.

For my final artwork work, chose to do research on things psychiatrist needs for helping their patient and I chose to do a image of a psychiatrist room. When it's time to meet with the psychiatrist the patient walks into the office. A psychiatrist office is meant to be welcoming to a patient. When the patient feels like the environment is very warm hearted, it makes it easier for a psychiatrist to analyze and interact with their patient more fluently. When they're not very welcomed, it would be harder to to talk to the patient, or make an analysis.
I enjoyed learning about the types of mental illnesses and learning how the psychiatrist helps cure them or, helps them reach their goals in life. I thought is was pretty spectacular when I was trying to add the reasoning into all the images in my art gallery. Some of the images really spoke to me and it was sort of interesting researching a lot of these images that you wouldn't have really notice in this world. I enjoyed analyzing all the pictures because I fell like I reached a pint of understanding what images can really portray. I also want to thank my mother for giving me facts about her job and what they do in her part of the medical field, even though she is a anesthesiologist. Overall, I think this portion my third project really helped me understanding what psychiatrist go through in their career path way.
For my social studies portion of the project, I chose to research about three traits a psychiatrist will need to have in their career. I created a mind map that represents the three traits a psychiatrist will need to have in their career. I also wrote about my own reasons about what traits a psychiatrist should have in their career. In the red section, it talks about different ways a psychiatrist can help their patients. I believe helping connects to becoming a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist helps their patient by communicating with them about their mental illness and prescribe drugs to help them be cured frothier mental illness.In the blue section, it talks about different ways a psychiatrist cares for their patients. I believe caring connects to becoming a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a kind of doctor who studies psychology. A Psychiatrist is meant to care for their patient by listening to their mental illness, or situation that they may have and give them solutions to their instances. In the yellow section, it talks about different ways psychiatrist help their patients. I believe hope connects to me becoming a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is meant to give their patients hope when dealing with their patients. A psychiatrist should give the patients hope to make them feel if they will get out of their situation. i thought it was really cool to make a mind map for my project. It really helps you understand the point your trying to make.
I chose to do this project because I want to become a psychiatrist when I grow up and graduate from medical school. My step mom is an anesthesiologist and she really talks to me about what other doctors do in the hospitals or medical field in general. I thought it was a cool idea to get reasons to why I wanted to do research on psychiatrists. I always thought helping people in the medical field who be a great job for me because i enjoy helping people. Wether it be from a mental illness, depression, a sense of fear, etc. The medical field is opening up many opportunities for medical students I want to be one of those people who work at a hospital or a care center. I really hope this inspires other to never give up on your dream job. Always strive to be the best you can be, wether your a singer, dancer, business man, doctor, manager, teacher etc. Now go out there and start dreaming big!
