Describe a shadowing experience that has impacted you the most: The shadowing experience that has impacted me the most was shadowing Dr. Harkins in Labor and Delivery. I enjoyed the atmosphere and how the team worked hard to take care of their patients efficiently. It was also great being able to witness a C-section and see the baby being brought into life and moved on to be taken care of by the neonatologists. I enjoyed my rotations with children patients and learning how a family’s life can be drastically changed for the better through medicine.
How has HCMP benefitted your professional or individual goals? HCMP has helped me solidify my desire to pursue medicine. Before joining HCMP, I had not shadowed any doctors or health professions during college. With HCMP, I have been able to shadow medical students, residents, and physicians, which has allowed me to learn more about the healthcare system and the teamwork it takes to deliver medical care. Having such opportunities has helped me get exposure to various fields in medicine and learn more about what particularly interests me in medicine.
What has been your favorite aspect of HCMP? My favorite aspects of HCMP has been having the access to great doctors and bonding with my intern class.
