Supervisor of the Stem Cell Laboratory at UMHC (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – November 13, 2018
Learned a lot in the Stem Cell lab department. It was very inspiring to work with the patients and the nurses. The hardest part of the job was seeing that some of the patients that got the treatment did not get better.
Very good benefits
I was not told about real schedule when I was interviewed.
Work was also coming, as most needed tutoring or were required to have it. The advisors and athletes work with your schedule and theirs to make sure they are getting the help they need and you aren't overwhelmed.
The hospital and medical side is very hard to work for. They mean well but doctors and poor money management have big impacts on employee pay Short Breaks, Sometimes you can not have lunch because they do not guarantee another employee to cover the clinics.
My supervisors were very flexible with my situation at the time and understood my special needs. I was accommodated when it came to cubicle space. Everyone in the office and laboratories were very friendly and always remembered my name.
The last four years at The University of Miami have been full of knowledge, great leadership, and growth.
PATIENT ACCESS REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – 5555 Ponce De leon Blvd Coral Gables, Fl 33146 – September 15, 2018
In the last almost five years i have been working at The University of Miami, i have gained knowledge in such diverse areas from customer service to reading medical records, and assisting to surgical administrative assistance's. From day one at this company i was trained for numerous departments in different areas of the health system. I have been trained to complete patient clinical intake forms, send and receive all types of medical records and completing all HIPPA forms necessary for release, related medical terms, pharmaceutical terms, and handling all types of testing and imaging orders. i have spent the last year working side by side in the clinical areas with the clinical staff and administrative staff, assisting with medical records, scheduling,overbooking, and canceling VIP patients.
gained a wide range of knowledge in a clinical setting
Great place to work although not as organized as one would come to think. After working for them for quite some time, ive come to realize that UM is simply a name and does not live up to the hype that comes with it. It is a great place to get experience and learn about research and about the laboratory position. You will definitely get good experience that will help you grow and get better at your job and other jobs in the long run.
Flexible schedule (sometimes), some very good people
Incredibly stressful, very blameful for mistakes made, not organized, rude staff
Working at the University was a challenge but nice. I had a chance to meet and greet different cultures and learn from them as well as they learn from them. It would have been a great place career wise but I was only there on a temp basis.
