Pros: good training; some fun supportive co-workers.
Cons: a few "crabby" people can spoil it, don't let it if you are truly interested in being a transplant coordinator, dealing with death and dying can be emotionally difficult; but you are also a part of saving lives.
Overall, working for Shands LifeQuest was a positive experience. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with, but like most places, there are a few people who make the working environment difficult (although unnecessarily). Be sure to find out how many days a month you'll be on call and exactly what is expected of you. Due to this program being hospital – more... based, the budget is tighter than non-hospital based OPOs. But, it is a good place to get experience. The orientation period is more than adequate - just do what you are expected to do when you are expected to do it. Be diligent and responsible. Can be a fun group and the work is definitely rewarding. – less
