Five Hamilton students interested in health careers just finished spending the week shadowing resident physicians in the St. Elizabeth Medicine Residency Program. The students spent time with different physicians rotating in fields such as Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Surgery, OB-GYN and Pediatrics.
"It gave me a lot of insight in the actual nature of the job, rather than theoertic, what could happen and textbook sort-of examples people give you," says Robert Hawkins, Hamilton College student.
"It's a way for college students to come and to pursue a possible career in medicine, to have more of an understanding of clinical education prior to making the decision to go into medicine," says
Dr. Molly Schug, St. Elizabeth Medical Center Chief Resident.
This is the eighth consecutive year St. Elizabeth has offered the "Week In The Life" program.
