I started my psychology internship at a neurology department of a big viennese hospital on Monday and I am loving it!
This is exactly what I want to do!!!
I get to attend the daily morning meetings at the ward, listen to what patients were admitted since the last meeting the day before, try to figure out for myself if I can spot the lesions or bleedings in the MRIs or CTs that are being projected on a big screen and just soak up lots of medical talk and language.
For now I am just shadowing my supervisor and my colleague, but hopefully pretty soon I will get to carry out some diagnostic tests as well. And I will also probably get to carry out some rehab sessions with a new patient next week.
