My career at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center gave me valuable experience, and I expecially enjoyed the professional relationships I developed.
Pros: employee incentives regarding the good life program, the focus on employee wellness.
Cons: lack of professional growth and advancement.
Typical day: Supporting the Director of Medical Staff Services with various duties; front line phones, interaction with the Medical Staff daily; scheduling executive management meetings; handled calls for Patient Ethics Consults; oversight and monitoring of license expirables, supported the department chairman of various committees; prepared meeting packets for Credentials and MEC Committees; many interruptions throughout the day; assisted co-workers with requests as needed.
During my tenure at LBMMC, I learned patience, composure while under pressure and deadlines, and many of my tasks involved reviewing and preparing documents for accuracy. Overall, my time management skills were enhanced and strengthened while in this position.
Great hard working team of co-workers.
Challenging aspect of the job was on some days the distraction of noise in the department was sometimes difficult.
Most enjoyable part of my job was assisting our medical staff team. I also enjoyed bringing resolution to challenging situations.
