Excellent!!! my experience at Columbia University was very very unique. a typical day will start very slowly doctors and fellow students will arrive around 10:00 in the morning , the Monday meeting i will be next to the director taking minutes that later i have to distribute to five labs, then i will star the purchase orders for the department of Neurology, office supplies , lab equipment and everything they need to do the research. Learned a lot of medical terminology regarding muscular distrophy with my boss,it was only me and a sweet lady in the office but i did a lot interaction with the fellows students that came to do research in our lab.
there was not hard part in my job because the doctors expend most of the days doing research and given lectures out of the country, so basically i was my own. the most enjoyable part of the job was when we can schedule patients knowing that they will see the best neurologist and i was be able to gave the appoimet there were waiting for ( waiting list was up to a Year just to see the neurologist)
Loved to work in Columbia Univeristy.
