Week 13:
Mayo Clinic

August 21, 2013 | I can’t believe that my time at Mayo Clinic is already over! This summer has given me so many opportunities to learn about research and the medical field. The knowledge and skills I have gained from this fellowship will help me succeed in the future, both academically and professionally. During my last week, I was able […]

Week 12:
Mayo Clinic

August 13, 2013 | This week we finished sending out our surveys and even received some back in the mail. I was very excited when I found out the first Epilepsy survey was returned! So far, we have received about 10 Epilepsy surveys and 30 Parkinson’s Disease surveys back. We are currently working on setting up a database so […]

Week 11:
Mayo Clinic

August 7, 2013 | This week we continued to work on the CAP analysis for our sleep deprivation study. We have approximately 20 out of the 50 records analyzed thus far. Our goal is to have all the records analyzed before my last week here, so I can help with the data analysis. This is what I will be […]

Week 10:
Mayo Clinic

July 29, 2013 | This week I hit the ground running with the CAP analysis for our sleep deprivation study. We have five subjects who have completed the study so far.

Week 9:
Mayo Clinic

July 22, 2013 | After being at the Mayo Clinic for over nine weeks now, I have gotten into a routine. This is what a typical day in the lab looks like:  My day begins by walking from my apartment to work through the skyway/subway system at Mayo. The picture to the left is the lobby of the Gonda […]

Week 8:
Mayo Clinic

July 16, 2013 | I am thankful I had the opportunity to shadow a Physician Assistant (PA) and Nurse Practitioner (NP) on the Sleep Medicine floor this past week. After Cornell, my goal is to attend a PA program. For those of you who don’t know, a PA is a mid-level healthcare professional who practices medicine under the supervision […]

Week 7:
Mayo Clinic

July 8, 2013 | This week went by quickly, considering we only had a three-day week. Most of this week was dedicated to completing the CAP gold standard. The CAP gold standard consists of 120 epochs compiled from different subjects. In order to pass, you must have over 80% concordance with the gold standard. The purpose of the gold […]

Week 6:
Mayo Clinic

July 1, 2013 | This week was pretty exciting because I had my first interaction with a patient. I was invited to observe Dr. St. Louis give a neurological examination to a patient participating in our sleep deprivation study. The patient was staying at St. Mary’s Hospital, which is the other Mayo Clinic campus in Rochester about five minutes […]

Week 5:
Mayo Clinic

June 24, 2013 | This past month has gone by so quickly – I can’t believe I am almost halfway done with my experience. I have learned so much these past few weeks and I cannot wait to apply my new knowledge as we delve deeper into our projects these next couple months. One project I am particularly excited […]

Week 4:
Mayo Clinic

June 17, 2013 | In the mornings, the other summer students and I continue to practice our RSWA scoring skills in order to prepare for the Gold Standard test. After we complete the Gold Standard test, our scorings will be considered reliable to use in the studies. After a week of experience with RSWA scoring, I have been exposed […]
