Placement in the Children's Heart Center was amazing because I got to see so much during the course of a week, and working with children is always very fun! It was great because my mentors were really excited to teach me about their work, trying to keep me engaged by describing in detail their work. Additionally, their coworkers (other surgeons, doctors, nurses, and bio-engineers) also welcomed me and tried to explain everything they were seeing. You can really tell the department is close and excited to help children. There was a breadth to what I saw, including seeing characterizations, surgeries, and the ICU. I really enjoyed being able to see the entire process a patient goes through, from the surgery all the way to being discharged and healthy!
