Fall Anticipation and Preparation- 11/5/19
We are beginning to search for internship opportunities, calling people, emailing people, and deciding what we really want to do for LINK. I have had two meetings with Janae so far, and I have made a lot of progress in looking for internships. I have decided that I definitely want to intern in the medical field because it is very intriguing to me. I researched the different services that are offered at most hospitals, and my highest interests are ER, surgery, cardiology, and orthopedics. I have a contact who is an ER doctor in Farmington, and he has invited me to further explore interning with him at San Juan Regional Medical Center. I have been staying in contact with him, and starting to look into the specifics of interning with him. He has also offered to connect me with doctors in other fields at his hospital. My next step is to contact the hospital and see what I need to do to be allowed in the hospital, and I am very excited to continue this process.
Winter Anticipation and Preparation- 2/13/20
I have just confirmed my LINK Internship. I am interning in the Emergency Room at San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington, new Mexico. My mentor is Dan Erwin, an E.R. doctor. My next step is to go to a training at the hospital to learn about the rules and HIPPA. Then, I am going to go to Farmington and take a tour of the hospital with Dr. Erwin so that I have a general understanding of it before I start my internship. After that, my internship will start at the end of April. I am very excited for this experience I think that it is going to be great!
