Today i received the clinical rotations I will be participating in over the next few weeks! Doctora Cecilia Uribe, the medical director of the CFHI La Paz program, contacted us with our rotation schedule and informed us about our weekly meetings we will have with her. My schedule consists of:
Week 1: Quemados – which means burn victims
Week 2: Servicio de adolescentes – meaning working with adolescents
Week 3: Cirugia – which is surgery, most likely the operating room
Week 4: Nefrologia – nephrology which deals with kidney functionality
When I received the schedule I was extremely content to see the departments will be very hands-on and interactive since they are departments that tend to be demanding and significant (especially the burn victims department.) I anticipate the great clinical immersion (as well as cultural) to be very eye opening and informative! I believe I can get A LOT out of these clinical rotations through exposure to patients in such critical medical conditions such as these.
