My Experience at Camp CHLA
This past week I had an amazing experience at Camp CHLA. The camp provides an experience for high school students to learn about different medical professions within the hospital. Each day I shadowed a different health care professional. I watched them treat/ care for patients, listen to them share their knowledge, and I received educational information on what is required to pursue that job. Also, I participated in different skills labs, where we learned to take vital signs, how to perform CPR, flush an IV line and other important skills. Some of my favorite parts were seeing a brain surgery, being in the trauma room, interacting with the kids, and developing amazing friendships with my peers. The week flew by... I wanted it to last longer! It really has me thinking about healthcare jobs!
