“My post-secondary plans are to attend a four-year university to obtain a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. I plan to follow the completion of this degree by immediately applying to medical school and specializing in the field of Orthopedics.”
“The most important lesson I have learned from my experience at SCG-Orthopedics is that it takes a team to succeed. There are many people in the clinic that play a role in the fulfillment of patient care and they include physicians, nurses, medical assistants, X-ray technicians, MRI technicians and more. Everyone in the clinic must work together to give the best quality of care to the patient so that they are one step closer to the outcome they desire. Each member of the team has a clear role to play in the clinic and when everyone is doing what they are supposed to, the office is like a fine working machine.”
