Heart and Health Medical is centered on the belief that our patients are our family and we treat them with the courtesy and respect all while providing them with the most advanced medical care possible. We practice early detection and prevention of disease, syndromes and abnormalities. To obtain our patients' optimum medical needs, we custom tailor treatment plans for each individual patient. We take pride in our customer service and attention to detail.
The medical assistant internship here at Heart & Health provides students interested in a career in health care to gain real patient care experiences and learn about cardiology. Interns rotate among our four office locations in North Babylon, Plainview, Middle Island, and Massapequa and are taught how to do EKGs, take vital signs, perform diagnostic tests, and take patients' medical histories. Interns are also required to do a research project on a topic of their choice, which this website is an example of. At the end of the internship, the interns learn valuable information that will serve them well in the healthcare career they choose.
About the Author:
My name is Stephanie Kramer, and I am one of the 2017 Summer interns here at Heart & Health. I am currently a rising senior at the University of Delaware with a double major in Nutritional Sciences & Dietetics and a minor in Biology. My goal is to go to PA school after I graduate to become a Physician Assistant, and use my knowledge of nutrition to treat patients with a preventative approach. My goal currently is to gain as much medical and patient care experience as possible before setting out into my future career.
During my semesters away at college, I have the opportunity to intern at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE and do research on sepsis patients in the ED. This has been a great way for me to gain research experience and hospital exposure. I am also certified as a nursing assistant and work at a nursing home part time, which has allowed me to become comfortable dealing with patients and their families. Of course, my internship here at Heart & Health has provided me with extremely valuable knowledge, and I love seeing a variety of patients in an office setting. Heart & Health Medical has such a wonderful staff that provide above quality care, and I have learned so much from all of them. I am very excited for the future and the opportunities that lie ahead!
