Health Information

May - July 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

The staff was very nice and helpful. I like being afforded an opportunity to work in the medical records department. This is a job that is truly undervalued. You have to know HIPAA rules and guidelines to be able to provide customers and clients with the appropriate information. You must be very detailed oriented.

What I wish was different

The only I wish that had been different is actually getting some real hands on training instead of shadowing people. I know the health information profession is very sensitive when it comes to privacy, security and confidentiality. Hands on training/experience will help build your skills and knowledge base and give you an opportunity of becoming employed.

Advice

I love learning about how the role of the medical records department plays an integral part of the health information profession. This experience was rewarding and I am most appreciative of Henry Ford Health System selecting me as a candidate for an externship within their HIT department.

Associate Management Engineer

May 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I enjoyed an opportunity to improve my engineering skills learned in the classroom by applying them in the real world. It was also a nice change from automotive work, which seems to provide most internship opportunities locally. Specifically, I appreciated the opportunity to apply problem solving and analytical skills as I worked to improve processes within the health system.

What I wish was different

I wish that I would have had the opportunity to explore work within other departments and collaborate on a project with other interns.

Advice

When it comes to internships, you are largely responsible for your own success and experience. Work hard and keep yourself interested by requesting to be involved in projects that excite you, even if the involvement is limited.
