Hello all! My name is Nicole Berger and I am currently an intern at St. Luke’s University Health Network. I am incredibly sad to report that this is my last week at my internship! I can’t believe how fast the summer has gone by. I also can’t believe in 2 weeks I’ll be a senior in college… The time really does fly! Everyone, please enjoy it while you can and make the most of every moment and every opportunity that presents itself. Sorry, had to get a little cliche for moment.
Now, to the cube, this has been my home for the past month and a half, gorgeous isn’t it? Me and this little guy have been
through a lot this summer. In this cube I’ve written Q and A articles about skin cancer, adult behavioral health, and gastroenterology. I wrote a press release for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. I’ve learned way more about the human body and health services than I ever imagined I would. I made phone calls to magicians, fire safety organizations, and even chair companies. I counted to 50 a little over 100 times (I was putting together pamphlets to send to 40 different practices for a make-over project.) This is only the short list…
A lot has happened outside of the cube too. I’ve reviewed commercials about the St. Luke’s Cancer Center. I’ve handed out literature about healthy living at a farmers market sponsored by St. Luke’s. I’ve sat in on and contributed to brain storming sessions concerning the cardiac center and St. Luke’s Hospice.I also went on a photo shoot for the new midwives who are joining the hospital.
Overall, I learned how to work in every aspect of the department, which is exactly what i asked for! I have decided that Ii am definitely interested in working in the health care field, and that a small department such as the one at St. Luke’s is a very good fit for me. As far as a specialty goes, i’m still uncertain. Although I am leaning in the media planning direction.
This has been an incredible experience for me this summer, I’ve learned so much and met so many amazing people! I feel very lucky and thankful that I was given the opportunity to work with such and amazing company and such inspiring individuals. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, I’m hoping after I graduate I will be the newest member of the St. Luke’s University Health Network Marketing Team!
