A typical day at work begins with warm greetings from a colleague. We talk about our shared view about a book we all decided to read as a group. Although, we have individual patients to take care of we manage to assists each other. I have learned team work is effective when everyone gets involved. Management give us full autonomy as a group working in the surgical bays. They would only intervene when conflict or situation requires their immediate attention. Working for a military base has diversity. People from all over the globe create a cultural workplace. A wonderful learning experience. The hardest part of any job is short staffed and a continued high volume of patients. My most enjoyable part of the job is ending the day productive with happy and satisfied patients.
Down time to catch up on paper work. Pot-luck 1-2 times a month

Advanced Training/Internship (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 7, 2014
Having a 6:45 am to 3:45 pm schedule was flexible by getting work done early with little to no intrusion to patients and doctors equipment. Working in a military grade facility was fantastic and very friendly environment with being educated from coworkers and supervisors on equipment they specialise. The management was very social with all members on helping and managing work and problems. The only Hard work one had was locating equipment within areas of the hospital, doctors and nurses will relocate equipment when needed. I will recommend anyone that is looking for a bio-medical tech job in the San Antonio area to this facility. being a strict environment which helped me learn from professional within my career, And being in a military society and member helped me become a hard working well educated employ.
Would work more efficiently with better management

I did enjoy working at WHASC; I genuinely love transcription and Pathology. I took the initiative to learn Pathology to assist with workflow and improvement of myself in having a diverse knowlodge of all aspects in transcription. Management could be improved upon. There was nothing that was hard about this job; when you enjoy what you do, its never hard.
