Family oriented work place
Physiology Lab Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bend, Oregon – February 26, 2018
A typical day at work would be to read email, check phone messages, makes appointments for testing, teach interns testing and observe them conducting testing, talking with students, staff, and the public, work with student interns on most recent study protocols, coach students, and help athletes understand when to begin different aspect of a training program.
I have learned a tremendous amount about physiology and how the body works during rest and exercise. I have also learned a tremendous amount about sport psychology and how to work with athletes to make the most of their training. I've learned a lot about how to coach to help students and athletes become successful at what they want to accomplish. My coaching style has changed from being the expert, to making each individual the expert in their own lives, and helping to guide them toward their goals.
Although I manage the lab, I have a department chair and lab director that I meet with when necessary.
The culture of the COCC workplace is casual, cutting edge, and family oriented.
The hardest part of this job is the salary.
The most enjoyable part of this job is working with individuals and helping them reach their goals successfully
