Flatbush Students Intern at Monmouth Medical Center During the Summer

Eileen Sutton with Laura Siemientkowski from Monmouth Medical  
This past summer I had the opportunity to intern at Monmouth Medical Center for five weeks alongside other Flatbush students including Eli Cattan, Isaac Mizrahi, Julie Mizrahi, Ralph Navarro and Michael Tawil, through the Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program. I also volunteered at the hospital making patient care rounds where I visited patients and attended to their needs as much as possible to make their stay more comfortable. These patients were generally recovering from various surgeries and it gave me great pleasure in knowing that I am helping them recover in a small way. They constantly told me how much they appreciated me being there and visiting them.

Being in the hospital made me very appreciative of doctors and nurses who dedicate their time to saving lives. These professionals are constantly coming up with new technologies in order to improve patient care, like the da Vinci Robot, which I had the chance to see in action. It was designed to perform surgeries with minimal incisions on the patient. Being in the hospital inspired me to look into the field of medicine and save lives like the doctors at Monmouth Medical.  ~Eileen Sutton
