Abstract

This poster gives an overview of the clinical experience obtained from an internship at Lynchburg General Hospital in Fall 2018. The internship required attendance at various Centra affiliated locations for two hours a day four days a week for three months, totaling at 120 hours. These hours were gained from shadowing nurses and physicians as well as observing surgical operations and documenting the experiences in a journal. While shadowing, it was expected to act professionally and encouraged to ask questions about procedures and terms. Through this, insight and direction into the medical field was obtained to aid in the future career goal of being a physician. Though there were well over 20 detailed experiences documented, the three considered the most impactful are presented in this poster.
