Summary of Internship
During my time in the Englewood Hospital I was a volunteer and like any volunteer, the hospital required that I start off in Courtesy to familiarize myself with the hospital before taking on a specialty. During my time in courtesy I would help by discharging patients, distributing several documents on different floors, and taking several bodily specimens to the laboratory and pathology. After a few weeks, I was assigned to Interventional Radiology. My time in interventional radiology gave me the great opportunity to see procedures such as MRIs, CT scans, PICC lines, abscess drainages and so on with the guidance of nurses and doctors. My time here gave me a sense of confidence especially since the physicians taught me how to read X-rays. Later in my internship I was lucky enough to be assigned to shadow around doctors and medical students who are Hospitalists. They would explain certain cases and how they would go about treatment. This along with radiology intrigued me and it is something to consider for the near future.
