This week, I spent a lot of time learning what my future could hold, by shadowing many of the doctors and nursing staff at the health system . It was a wonderful opportunity to understand my patient population and learn more about what went on in the day-to-day happening of a doctor.
I appreciated the bed-side manner of the hospital staff while interacting with patients in clinic. It was incredible to see nurses, assistants, and doctors able to explain things on an elementary level to patients, but then be able to communicate with other staff members on a technical level.
One of my favorite experiences was observing a procedure that my “boss” preformed. It was so different from what I expected an operation to be like and I was absolutely in love. Maybe surgery is on the horizon for me!
