Meet the doc alumni

On this page, we are proud to present our alumni who have moved forward on their journey as health professionals after their time with Delta Omega Chi Medical Service Society. Let's see what they have been up to!

Hello, I'm Momin Hussain!

How long were you a member of Delta Omega Chi Medical Service Society?

More than one year

What was your major when you attended the University of Houston?

Honors Biomedical Sciences

How has the next chapter in your life been after Delta Omega Chi?

I graduated early after serving in this amazing organization for over two years! I am attending medical school soon, beginning in the fall 2019 semester.

 

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

I gained a lot from all the various aspects of Delta Omega Chi. I made a lot of great friends and I helped a lot of great people through the mentorship program that I helped contribute to. I tried my best to prepare outstanding leaders and raise the expectations of student leaders in our organization and in others across the University of Houston campus. My efforts through partnerships and mutual networking for the sake of volunteering helped me influence more people outside the organization and build this organization's amazing reputation in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics as well as across the entire campus. I was able to gain a lot of unique perspective from the diverse group of people that I worked with and worked FOR (like members) when I was an officer. Similar to a real physician, I worked with various different types of future healthcare professionals and better understood how to work in such a colorful and widely varied environment. I hope everyone is able to benefit from DOC as much as I was!

What advice do you have for current and prospective members?

Try your best to manage your time efficiently and get good grades so that you can happily spend as much free time as you can at events! I really enjoyed all the DOC events, namely the blood drives, suture clinics, socials, school tours, volunteer events, meetings, bake sales, fundraisers, and more! Basically, I liked everything and I want everyone to have as much fun as possible with this service society like I did!

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

I originally started off on a Pharmacy career path and later switched to Nursing. I found Pharmacy was not the path for me but through Delta Omega Chi I was able to learn and become more exposed to other health professions which ultimately helped me find a career that I am passionate about and enjoy. Delta Omega Chi offered many resources, opportunities, and experiences that helped with my professionalism, communication and knowledge of health careers. Through Delta Omega Chi, I was also able to meet many talented, bright, amazing people that motivated me and supported me through out my journey and continue to do so today.

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

After Delta Omega Chi, I was admitted to the Texas Women's University Nursing Program. This chapter of my life has been challenging, exciting and amazing. I am learning so much everyday and have become more passionate about nursing with every experience. As tough and busy as it can be, the experiences have been rewarding and I'm constantly meeting new, beautiful people that inspire me to continue working hard. Being in the program has taken up most of my focus but I can still find time to spend with my family, friends and do things I enjoy. As of now, even with all the stress and pressure, I feel this chapter of my life has been enjoyable and a challengingly good place.

What advice do you have for current and prospective members?

It is a very common mindset/goal for people to want to complete their studies as promptly as possible and to start working. My advice would be to take your time. Take time to really figure out and learn about the different types of health professions and what you truly want to do. Better to take your time to find the best profession for you than to rush and invest in a career you don't enjoy or end up switching out of. Take advantage of all the resources around you, get exposure, don't be afraid to ask questions, and enjoy the journey!

Hello, I'm Victoria Ong!

How long were you a member of Delta Omega Chi Medical Service Society?

One year

What was your major when you attended the University of Houston?

Public Health/ Pre-Nursing

How has the next chapter in your life been after Delta Omega Chi?

I was accepted to my first choice nursing school and enjoying my time at the new school.

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

DOC helped me become more involved in my community and encouraged me to help others, which is a fundamental part of healthcare. I was able to meet other pre-health students and always felt very welcome there. Being in DOC also inspired me to run for an officer position at my school.

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

Be involved and attend the events that are pertinent to your career or within your field of interest. DOC consistently posts events so there will always be something that fits your time schedule. I also encourage new members to attend socials since they are great stress relievers.

What advice do you have for current and prospective members?

"Fall down seven times, stand up eight." Be hopeful, continue to work hard, and never give up on your dream.

Biology

How has the next chapter in your life been after Delta Omega Chi?

Currently a 3rd year allopathic medical student (pursuing MD) at UTMB Galveston. Applying for residency Fall 2019, and graduating in Spring 2020.

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

Founding Delta Omega Chi is by far one of the greatest privileges I have had in my academic career. From ground zero, to growing DOC into one of the largest health organizations at UH within 1 semester, we found our passions, contributed our drive, and made life-long colleagues and friends. Because of DOC, we were able to influence and learn from a generation of pre-health students finding a safe place & mentorship to pursue their dreams and aspirations.

Hello, I'm Brandon Hua!

How long were you a member of Delta Omega Chi Medical Service Society?

What was your major when you attended the University of Houston?

Pre-Nursing

How has the next chapter in your life been after Delta Omega Chi?

I am currently in my S1 semester (second to last semester) at UTHealth School of Nursing. Nursing school has been very challenging and different, but definitely very rewarding as well.

How has Delta Omega Chi benefited you in your pre-health journey?

Delta Omega Chi has benefited me in many ways. As a member, it has provided me with countless volunteering opportunities and events that exposed me to the medical/healthcare community and helped me confirm that pursuing my career in Nursing is the right path for me. I was also given the opportunity to become a Pre-Nursing Mentor, which allowed me to give back to the organization and provide guidance to other Pre-Nursing students from personal experiences. Becoming a Pre-nursing mentor has helped me become a better leader, mentor, and mostly importantly, a better individual.

What advice do you have for current and prospective members?

1. BE ORGANIZED! Be on top of everything (or try to), it will definitely save you so much time. Get in a habit of using a planner (Google/Apple Calendar, notebooks, etc), whatever helps you to organize/plan your day/week/months/semester.

2. Take advantage of all your current resources such as advisors, DOC members/officers, Professors, and anybody that you can talk/ask questions about your future plans in Pre-health path. Take advantage of club events (volunteers, school tours, cadaver labs, etc), these experiences will benefit you in the long run such as building up your resume and provide exposure to the healthcare field.

3. Pre-requisites are actually very important (core-sciences), they help you build a solid foundation and will benefit you in the long-run while going through your program. Take them seriously!

4. Put yourself out there and don't be afraid of exposing yourself to the public/strangers or friends around you, this will slowly build up your confidence and will only do good in your future as a healthcare professional, and also as an individual. 5. Step back and see where your end goal is, focus on that goal! Don't forget to take time out to enjoy yourself (because you have a lot of it later, haha, jk, but kinda), doing things that help you destress will be very beneficial now and in the future. If you have any specific questions regarding the process of applying/getting into nursing school, then feel free to contact me @ Brandonhua96@gmail.com. Wish you all the best of luck in your Pre-Health Journey!
