Phlebotomy Externship, Dallas, TX - April 20, 2016
My externship at DMC was a great learning experience. I acted as an employee and by the third day I was making rounds myself and drawing inpatients and outpatients. I was encouraged very much by the patients (who were often relieved that the blood drawing experience was with minimal pain) and my supervisor who complemented me as one of the best students she had worked with. However, the management was rather young and immature and I did not see many opportunities for growth.
