exciting things are happening in my world…
i’m officially an intern…again. my placement is at children’s memorial hospital – which is ranked as the #1 children’s hospital in illinois. they have a top-notch graduate student internship program for social work. i’m in a cohort of four students (all women, naturally) that were accepted into the program. i know that they interviewed a lot of students, so i feel really honored to have been selected.
my first week has been packed with informational meetings, orientations, hospital tours, and meeting a ton of people whose names i won’t remember. but…it’s going to be a great year. my field supervisor is really cool. i’m assigned to the NICU service – neonatal intensive care unit (think really really tiny babies that have been born pre-term).
yesterday we had a welcome breakfast & met a lot of the social workers for the inpatient & outpatient units. everyone is so nice; they genuinely make interns feel like part of the team.
i want to work there already. seriously.
