Major: Allied Health Science On a daily basis I would observe therapy sessions and assist when appropriate or needed. I was essential in keeping clients safe on therapy gym equipment such as the rock wall, scooter board, or any of the various suspended equipment used at the clinic. I was able to participate in interactive play with clients and observe therapy techniques. Other duties of mine consisted of office tasks such as: filing, scheduling, answering the phone and taking payments/printing receipts for clients. It was also essential that I help keep the facility clean as it was a collective effort of all staff to maintain a safe and clean therapy environment. I completed projects throughout my time at Sensory Systems Clinic West which included but are not limited to: a new book checkout spread sheet, a parent resource list with alternative therapies, funding, camps etc., a binder for our picture schedule chart, informational flyers, a challenge chart for clients and a productivity report for the clinic.
Major: Engineering - Electrical This summer, I worked with machine controls, handling electrical drawings and documentation. I set up inputs and outputs in electrical panels and had them installed according to my design. I installed safety features and the electrical systems controlling them. I worked with PLC installation and programming, setting up and modifying the controls that determine how machinery behaves under certain conditions.
Major: Health Professions Some of the tasks I completed while at my internship include, but are not exclusive to-entering class evaluations into the computer, writing features for weekly emails, registering people for classes, distributing flyers throughout the hospital, and attending evening events.
