A once in a lifetime experience in the military away from home for the first time
Pros: A great life experience
Cons: the low salary
After morning physical training (P.T.), I open up the clinic and start checking in patients, take their vital signs, and do triage. I basically worked like a doctor in my first unit, asking patients their history, performing my medical exam, making a diagnosis, and prescribing an action plan, all under physician supervision. Sometimes the clinic is swamped with patients the medics gets a lot of leeway to be basically doctors. This was both stressful and rewarding at the same time, especially when patients follows up feeling better and grateful.
As a medic in uniform, professionalism was the utmost important aspect when dealing with co-workers and the chain of command
I matured during my time in the army, learning skills and knowing great amount of things what i can accomplish
