Institutional at Karmanos

Posted by Elizabeth Kelly at Friday, April 20, 2012

Well after a month off it was really nice to just ease into things at Karmanos. I have never worked in a hospital and really gained no experience during P3 IPPE so this was a great introduction.
Some of the stuff I did the first two weeks:
1) Shadowed tech/pharmacist in unit dose
2) Investigated the Investigational Drug Service
3) Learned how to do IV's (quite easy actually)
4) Learned how chemos work
5) Went to med safety meetings, etc.
6) Asked lots of law questions - the law exam is coming up!!!

2nd 2 weeks:
1) Rounded with med onc team and gave a presentation on equianalgesic pain dosing
2) Worked in the BMT clinic with 2 P4s from Wayne State - they won't stop talking about how they only have one week left after this and then graduation (totally bragging)
3) Presented on fertility counseling and preservation in female cancer patients to the pharmacy group. It was a 40 minute presentation (but I got away with maybe 30 minutes).

Overall this rotation was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to my last rotation coming up at St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit for Cardiology/Critical Care and then graduation.... 29 days!!!!
