Pros: Easy task, experience in medical field
Cons: Repetitive work, lack of job culture
I worked only a summer at Methodist Hospital, in the scheduling department. My role was simply to scan doctors orders into the computer system and make sure the information was correct. Initially, the hardest part was learning the software but I was able to catch on very quickly. From the outside it may look tedious but I enjoyed organizing the data, knowing that important patient information was involved which should be respected and in perfect order. My co-workers were friendly but usually busy since the phones were constantly ringing. I value the experience I gained there and it has instilled a continual interest in the medical field.
