Summary of Internship
As an intern at The Englewood Hospital Medical Center, I usually walk or get dropped off at the hospital on Thursdays before 9:00am. Once I arrive, I sign in and, for the first month, I go to courtesy. In courtesy, I get called to go missions, which include anything from helping patients make their way around the hospital to transporting medicine. After the first month was up, I went to the Biomedical Engineering section of the hospital. In Biomed, I took apart SCDs, repaired them, wrote up reports, inspected surgical machines, sat in on operations, and gained job experience. I have learned from this internship that both efficiency and collaboration are necessary skills to have as an engineer. I am very thankful for being able to have a real job experience in the engineering field.
