Background Information

Englewood Hospital was incorporated in 1888, as a non-profit, non-sectarian voluntary health care facility administer care to the sick and injured. The twelve wooden bed building was housed on 3 acres opening on June 14, 1890 on Engle Street. Throughout the years the hospital was extended to be larger. Englewood Hospital was the first New Jersey affiliate of Mount Sinai School of Medicine and is a member of the Mount Sinai Health System. This affiliation with Mount Sinai School of Medicine has enabled Englewood Hospital and Medical Center to become a center of education and research. Residents in surgery, pediatrics, podiatry, pathology, and critical care medicine, rotate throughout the hospital.

Summary of Internship

Englewood Hospital Medical Center is a hospital devoted towards providing exceptional and hospitable care. At EHMC due to my close ties affiliated within the hospital, I was given the opportunity to shadow and assist administrators, nurses, physicians and even surgeons throughout their working days. My day at internship was divided into different sections based on my department; which was the Breast Care Center, Cath Lab, and Emergency Room. Depending on which I was with for the day determined what I would actually be doing. If I was with a physician or a surgeon for the day I would go on rounds with them and observe procedures and evaluations. If I was with a nurse or an administrator I would merely do clerical or secretarial work. As of now I view my internship as a simple stop in my journey to becoming either an emergency room physician or an athletic physician, and it is worth it.
