Summary of Internship

Being an intern at Englewood Hospital in the operating room has been a wonderful experience for me. Every day I have been learning something new medically as well as life lessons on how to carry myself throughout the professional public setting of the hospital. As I observe surgery every day Dr. Moore helps me to follow the procedure step by step and quizzes my knowledge on the field of medicine. He really is a great mentor because as a surgeon he doesn’t have to accommodate me being in the room. He helps me feel welcome and he makes sure I am fully aware of my surroundings which is always nice. Dr. Moore has always been impressed with my wide variety and depth of knowledge. The first day I met him he made me tell him, using only medical terminology, what was wrong with the patient, what he was correcting, and what was being done in the procedure. I really couldn’t ask for anyone better to shadow. I have shadowed the other surgeons in his practice and they are not as friendly as he is. He genuinely cares about my experience. Outside of the OR, Vindra is responsible for me. For one, she always keeps you busy and makes sure you know what you should be doing and what is appropriate for the hospital setting. She helps you to keep focus and remember what you are here for instead of goofing off. She teaches me life lessons so that I can alter my character for different circumstances.
