Volunteering at the ER and department of internal medicine has been great. The ER and department of internal medicine were really different. The pace was different as the ER was more hectic compared to internal medicine but both were equally busy in workload and attention. In the ER, I mostly escort patients to different areas and rooms, but in internal medicine, I help the secretary at the nurses' station answer phone calls from patients and other parts of the hospital. Interacting with the patients, secretaries, and nurses were interesting and a great learning experience.
