Week 10:
The Children’s Hospital

August 22, 2012 | This was not a full week due to the fact that I needed to leave on a weekend, and my work on my project was complete. It is crazy that my time here in Colorado is up, and I will be heading back to Iowa shortly. Friday was my last day, and all of the […]

Week 9:
The Children’s Hospital

August 17, 2012 | After the presentation I gave last week, I was given feedback from the surgeons on how to improve my study and make it more likely to be published.

Week 8:
The Children’s Hospital

August 10, 2012 | This week was the week of my big end of the summer presentation.

This was made slightly more stressful by the fact that up […]

Since I am interning for the MRC, I was required to go and give a […]

Week 3:
The Children’s Hospital

June 26, 2012 | This week has definitely been my favorite week here yet. I started off the week finishing up my patient log according to the inclusion criteria of the study. This was a very long process because each patient had to meet certain requirements in order to get in to the study. I was able to search […]

Week 2:

June 19, 2012 | This week has been very interesting because I have been able to attend many meetings and learn about many new topics.
