You will get a good general feel of the hospital by working and/or observing in most departments. The type of work you will be allocated will depend to an extent on your own abilities and capabilities, which is understandable given that you will be dealing with patient health and safety.
You have a chance to experience some of the following areas & much more :
Generally, your day will start with accompanying the doctors on ward rounds to see the in-patients. You will also be able to sit in on doctor-patient consultations. You'll be assigned to a doctor or nurse who will supervise you during each session and they will explain the workings of their job and take you into one of the departments in the hospital. You will have a chance to assist doctors while performing surgeries in the operation theatre.
Your hours may vary insofar as they may be subject to shift rotas. The rough timings (depending on the hospital) will be 10am - 1pm and then 2pm - 6pm. Some of the hospitals schedule their surgeries in the afternoons so if you have been invited into the operating theatre, you can take the evening off as some of the surgeries can last a few hours.
The working week runs from Monday to Friday.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful and they will make you feel extremely welcome.
