Clerk lll Dialysis (Current Employee), Iowa City, IA – April 28, 2015
Pros: Home Dialysis nurses good to work with
A typical day at work involves scheduling patients for dialysis, ordering supplies for Home Dialysis patients and for the unit. In my clerical duties here I also schedule ancillary appointments to other departments within the University Hospital. Work I have enjoyed here is intake for transfer patients and traveling patients which requires direct phone contact with outside dialysis units. I have also enjoyed making sure that the Home Dialysis nurses get the support they need. The Home Dialysis nurses are the most supportive group of people which makes them a good group for training patients to do dialysis treatment at home.

I believe I have gotten a very well rounded education here, and it is a healthy learning environment for students. I would not trade my experience at the University of Iowa for anything.
