Well, the time has come. This is my last week at the OB/GYN office. I shall be departing from where I currently work and transferring to a different office and field of medicine. I wanted to stay in the OB/GYN field but the next best place to work was an Internal Medicine place near by. Not that I have a problem with that. At first, I was worried, because people go to their primary care physicians because they feel sick. I have MS which makes me worried, but on the other hand, a lot of patients go to the doctor and aren’t contagious. They have a UTI, or a headache, or they cut themselves. It’s not necessarily because they have some contagious disease that is going to make me sick. Any office or place that I work in has people in it that can get me sick. Places I would have to worry about it more are hospitals and infectious disease medicine. It isn’t very common to come across someone with something that bad in any doctor’s office. Most people would go to the hospital if they felt that badly. I also won’t be in constant contact with anyone for too long…to the point I will most definitely catch what they have.
So starting Monday, I shall be a medical assistant in a small office for primary care physicians. The office technically has two physicians but usually there is only one there at a time while the other works at the other office. There is another student there currently from the school I went to. I wonder if I will recognize her. She started about the time I did. I don’t recognize her name though. My supervisor also went to my school about 2 years ago. It sounds like a nice place. I’m looking forward to it.
It was very nice for them to take me last minute. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to find another place to finish my externship without having to take a break from school….which also sounded pretty nice to me! At least now I can focus on my goal to get my certification and become a full blown certified medical assistant!
