I have been doing my internship in the lab at our local hospital. I have been getting to draw blood, some microbiology, and run certain tests. My favorite part has been working in microbiology. I love seeing all the bacteria growth. I like looking in the microscope too. I think it is really interesting to see all the different types of cells. I have been learning to distinguish the different cells. I also really enjoy drawing blood. I have also gotten to watch a few EKGs being done. I am almost done with my internship, I only have two more days. I have really enjoyed my time in the lab. I have made friendships, and professional connections that will last a lifetime.
My communication goal is to have a conversation with someone, about something other than work, everyday. My leadership goal is to take initiative and do something I know needs to be done everyday. My goal to expand my professional connections is to talk to someone in a different department everyday.
I chose to do my community service with the Sheriff’s Office. I helped with their rock wall at the local fair. I helped hook kids to the rope on the wall so that they could climb it. I also got to climb the wall a few times. I made it to the top all but once. It is a lot harder than it looks. My community service had also expanded my professional connections.
