Summary of Internship
Englewood Orthopedics Associates is a very welcoming internship. The experience is very beneficial and has helped me grow and understand what I want to become. It is very rare that I receive actual tasks, but I receive an opportunity to shadow the doctor all day. He teaches me how to review x-rays, shows me where to get certain tools needed, and how to call in patients. My mentor gives me an overall understanding of the field and makes sure he goes in depth in what he is explaining. There is never a time when I do not understand what is going on. The employees do not treat me as if I am a child, but as an actual part of the organization, a true intern. I have grown to love the internship I currently hold. This group of people has helped me learn how we act in a workplace as well as what others expect. This is by far one of the greatest experiences of my life.
