Sign up for the Summer Elective at the VA Hospital - spend 2-3 hours a day for 4 weeks (flexible, according to your schedule) in the OR. Learn IV placement and intubation skills. This is a great way to get some hands-on experience and you will still have plenty of time to complete an Emphasis project.
Email a CV to Carol.Clark@va.gov or for more information on the Summer Elective, call 615- 873-7268.
In addition, 1st Year Medical Students can spend a few days shadowing an anesthesiologist through Careers in Medicine.
