Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Iowa CityJune 27, 2015
I enjoyed helping students understand difficult concepts. Interacting with students rekindled my passion for the sciences. However, it was difficult when grading revealed that some students did not understand it as well as others.

I did not feel like I was an asset to the company, always treated as if they could find anyone to replace me and didn't bother helping me advance to accomplish my own goals.

I am fortunate enough to work with a great team of people with common goals. I appreciate how the hours are flexible and I have good management. I like how I have been able to start applying what I learned in the classroom in a real life setting.

U of I Dialysis
Clerk lll Dialysis (Current Employee), Iowa City, IAApril 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.

Well rounded facility with great staff
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee), Iowa City, IAApril 27, 2015
I started out as a desk clerk at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics when I moved to Iowa City, IA. I then earned my radiologic technology certificate and started working there in the radiology department. I am now participating in the nuclear medicine technology program at the hospital and will earn my B.S. in Radiation science in July. I love this hospital and I have always enjoyed my time here. 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.
