Background Information

Englewood Hospital & Medical Center has been around since 1890. It is also a non-profit, non-sectarian voluntary health care facility. EHMC was the first New Jersey hospital to be affiliated with Mount Sinai School of Medicine. As well as a member of the Mount Sinai Health System. EHMS affiliation with Mont Sinai School of medicine has helped Englewood Hospital to become an education and research center as well. Englewood Hospital is known for its patient car as well as its bloodless surgery, vascular, and cardiac programs.

Summary of Internship

As an intern at Englewood Hospital Medical Center I work from 9:00 to 3:00 on Thursdays. During the first week of my internship, I learned about the hospital and became familiar with my department, the Therapy gym. Here I am able to help the physical therapists get ready to treat patients by prepping beds, making ice packs and heating packs for the patients, and more. I also do some filing and complete various tasks. This internship is beneficial because as a person who wishes to pursue this field in the future, I am able to observe the physical therapists at work and see how they treat patients with different diagnosis.
