Student Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 May 2017
My time at Sunnybrook was to complete a thesis for my undergraduate in Medical Physics. It was research for reducing heart dose when giving radiation to patients with breast cancer. The whole radiation therapist team at Sunnybrook were really helpful in showing me how to sue various programs and acquire the data I needed. My supervisor was willing to teach me but also gave me the freedom to explore and learn for myself.

Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 October 2013
I did my placement here in Sunny Brook in a medical/surgical unit. It is a different unit I must say because clients here do not stay for long. They only stay for couple of day. I really enjoy interacting with patients and family before they go to there surgery. I have learned to much on how they prepare theirselves prior to surgery. I also get to learn on how to interact with physicians and surgeons. I also got the chance to do some health teaching for the clients and their families before and after surgery.
The staff and management in the unit where I was assigned where very professional. They helped me grew as a nursing student. They helped me prepare on how to be a real nurse.
The hardest part of being in a surgical unit was that it needs lots of expertise.
I enjoy being with a multi-cultural environment and strong dynamic of professional people not only nurses but also the entire health care team.
multicultural, dynamic unit with so many information I learned from different fields of health care
limited time to learn many things about the surgical unit
