Summary of Internship
As an intern, I have the opportunity to observe the inner workings of a hospital. During this internship, I have already learned that working in a hospital isnít all about surgeries and procedures. There is a lot of paperwork and communication that has to be organized and taken care of before the surgeries take place. My job as an intern is to organize these papers to make sure Dr. Simons has what he needs for each consult with his patients. I also have the chance to watch Dr. Simons during operations and surgeries. Although paper organization may be a tedious job, it is an important part of a hospital and tells doctors why, what and if they need to perform surgeries.
