A typical day in this co-op position required me to assist administrative staff with varying tasks including informing patients about upcoming tests, chaperoning patients to diagnostic testing section, and taking care of paperwork. I learned a lot about the medical field through observation and educational conversation. The culture of St. Michael's Hospital is very welcoming, efficiency oriented, and inclusive. The most difficult part of my job was having to communicate with some patients who did not speak English well or could not be understood easily while speaking. The most enjoyable part of my job was the exposure to various medical tasks and learning about how diagnostic procedures are performed.
All of the employees are very supportive and hospitable.
