Hospital Technician

β€œI learned several real life skills, and I learned how to troubleshoot and repair equipment. As well, I had the wonderful experience of working in a developing country. The most rewarding part was learning Spanish and getting to interact with those who lived there. Also my Coordinator became one of my best friends. ”
