What I liked
I liked the medical exposure I received while working on the surgical floor of a hospital. I got to see so many cases and it definitely helped me to see the hierarchy of the healthcare system, everywhere from the volunteers, to Chaplins, to administrators, to Human Resources, to secretaries, to nurses, PA's, and doctors.
I also loved being able to go to work everyday to help others and make a difference in their lives. Finally, I loved the flexibility. While I had to work one, set 8 shift per week, I was able to take a vacation, but at the same time, work 50-60 hours per week during weeks where I had a lot of free time. Being able to work upwards of a 40 hour per week cap as in a traditional job or internship was definitely a plus.
