Summary of Internship

I was Dr. Salobís intern and spent most of my time following and observing him and his relations with patients. I spent most of my time with him at the office seeing patients; however, there were numerous occasions where he took me with him to observe him in surgery. I saw a knee arthroscopy, a ligament reconstruction, and a shoulder arthroscopy. I also spent some time with his partner Dr. Ann Miller and observed her in surgery. Dr. Salob diversified my activities by sometimes sending me to observe different aspects of medicine, such as physical therapy and pediatrics, in order for me to get a well rounded experience from my internship. This was an amazing opportunity to get an in depth look at many different aspects of orthopedics and areas of medicine in general from a doctorís perspective.
