Pros: working with people i respected
Cons: there were times i could not do everything myself, and had to rely on other people to help me get the job done right.
My typical day included checking in patients, answering the phones, assisting the doctors, helping patients understand their medicine, running errands for the doctors and nurses, organizing my workspace, etc.
I learned how to run clinics, including Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and the Pharmacy as well as security for a big hospital.
I – more... was constantly in charge of other corpsman working in the clinics, ensuring the office ran smoothly and helping when one clinic needed an extra hand.
My co-workers were wonderful and knowledgeable to work with and for.
The hardest part of the job was when the patients were harried and rushed and I couldn't help them because the clinic was backed up or the doctor was running behind.
I loved working with the kids and I loved knowing that my organizational skills were put to good use ensuring the clinic ran smoothly. – less
