Clinical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto – 15 August 2017
From an administrative perspective, this role provided opportunities to learn about clinic management. I helped all staff by providing technical support with our electronic medical record (EMR), training new staff and residents with the EMR, ordering supplies such as requisitions and vaccines, booking patients for consultations, and processing new patient referrals. Even though these were only some of the tasks I was involved with, my overall job was to ensure that all staff had the support they needed so that they could focus on providing excellent patient care. I have learned that strong administrative support is crucial to the functioning of our clinical space.
Fast paced and productive, staff members are extremely helpful, very efficient and well organized clinical environment
Surgical Receptionist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 June 2016
The three doctors whose clinics I was a surgical oncology receptionist for, all had different expectations of how the clinic is run. They were patient and kind with me, allowing for a positive learning environment. The management is organized and well equipped to deal with staffing changes and impromptu clinic days and other emergency circumstances. Co-workers, especially nurses and the surgical secretaries to the doctors were extremely friendly, helpful and multifaceted when it came all the different responsibilities that needed to be fulfilled for a clinic to run smoothly. The responsibilities did not seem overwhelming and the patient interactions were always pleasant. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.
Co-op High School Student (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 May 2016
It was a great experience at Mount Sinai Hospital. As a high school co-op student I learned many valuable skills and knowledge about the variety of careers that exist in a hospital beyond nurses, doctors and orderlies.
Challenging work environment with heavy and consistent workload.
Full Time - Glass Washing Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 May 2016
A typical day at work followed a shifting work routine depending on which shift I held in a given week. I worked at a different station each week for a total of 4 weeks in a cycle. Mostly it involved organizing and wrapping test tubes and beakers, learning how to be as efficient and fast as possible. I would then move to sterilization of contaminated glassware and would deliver sterilized glassware from the autoclave machine that was switched out.
My manager was very kind and helpful but not always present as she was a manager for a rather large area of the institute. She left a co-worker to help me get used to everything with a steep learning curve.
The hardest part of the job was the language barrier and communication difficulties I had with my co-workers and the fact that we were on completely separate pages, me being new and interpreting things from the bottom up and them being older and used to how everything functioned exactly according to a set routine. It was hard to understand each other most of the time and became frustrating at times.
The most enjoyable part of my job was being in a hospital environment and being able to work shifting schedules depending on the week.
