Pros: being able to watch the doctor perform surgical procedures
Cons: having to leave
This particular job was an Internship after a 3 month training course. We were all assigned particular locations to get hands on experience. I honestly had fun. Working directly under under the dermatologist. I filled Syringes, assisted the Doctor in giving stitches ,and removed them on my own. The doctor had us to cut open cysts he removed to make they weren't cancerous , and send skin biopsy's to the lab for inspection. I followed up with patients to contact the doctor to receive test results , and called the pharmacy to get prescriptions filled. When I moved over to Internal Medicine , I had to take Vital Signs , give shots to patients. and work with an EKG machine. I worked in the Medical records department as well pull charts as needed because they, gave us 2 weeks within each department to get a feel for them. I did not get hired on after , because they were looking for a bilingual applicant, but overall I enjoyed my time there.
