Summary of Internship

My position involves me completing tasks in the NICU(Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) and accompanying my mentor, neonatologist Dr. Howard S. Mazin, to deliveries and procedures involving newborns. In the NICU, I was taught to make admission packs. I also observed nurses as they provided care to the newborns and observed doctors and nurses as they rounded on the patients. The height of my internship was shadowing my mentor to deliveries, both vaginal and cesarean-section, and to special procedures. My mentor, other doctors, and nurses all taught me about the care of a premature or ill baby. They also taught me about the different diagnoses that required ICU care of a newborn I would highly recommend this internship to any student interested in becoming a nurse or doctor because of the experience you would get from it, or to any student interested in learning about infants staying in the NICU.
