STATEMENT OF PURPOSE /MOTIVATION LETTER

AMANDA RUM SJACHRAN

Graduated from Institute of Technology Bandung – Indonesia

Supervisor of Outpatient Pharmacy Unit– Krakatau Medika Hospital Cilegon – Indonesia

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to submit my name and documents for the Masters program in Translational Medicine at University of Helsinki.

I come from Indonesia, a developing country in Southeast Asia whose total population

reached over 260 million in this year (2017). Indonesia, however, still has many issues related with health. The diversity of ethnic and the vast settlement distribution have created challenges for health system management in Indonesia.

Currently I am working in Krakatau Medika Hospital (a state hospital-owned company), and one of the largest healthcare institution at Banten Province. My job here is as a Supervisor who responsible in serving medication for outpatient unit. I achieved this position after I have succeeded in managing few project at my hospital, which was closely related with selecting the appropriate kind of medicine that can be used for therapy at my hospital.

In order to be able to make a contribution to my company and country, I have decided to take my education to the next level and try to earn a Master’s degree in Translational Medicine which I expect to enhance my knowledge especially related with the skill and ability to educate patient while further aiming for public health issues. I am sure these disciplines will help me gain a perfect competence in my role as a pharmacist/apothecary.

I am interested in the program offered by Faculty of Medicine at University of Helsinki, as it

inherent with my field of work and will teach me how to actively participate in patient education. I would also like to take advantage of this program’s diversity and potential, mingle with students from around the world, and improve my global networking. I believe that living in Finlandia for approximately two years offers a great environment for both studying and socializing with friends. I perceive taking the program far away from home as a great chance to improve myself, both socially and scientifically. I am ready to learn new languages, make new friends, and take part in various activities in order to adapt to new cultures. I believe that taking the program means not only learning more, but also learning about life in the higher degree.

I will be grateful if I can be accepted in Master of Translational Medicine in this period. It will also allow me to provide a greater assistance and contribution to my role.

Yours Faithfully,

It will also allow me to provide a greater assistance and contribution to my role. Yours
