Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Thursday’s and Friday’s are days of shadowing at the hospital. Wednesday’s are days of excursions. Tuesday May 22nd was the first day in the hospital and i got the wonderful opportunity to shadow a gynecologist named Ana. We had conversations in English and some in Spanish. She showed me around the maternity hospital and introduced me to the other doctors that worked in the same department as her (she made sure she let them know I was American). Once her patients arrived, we both entered the room and she began the process of the exam by looking at the babies. Checking their heat beat,and making sure everything was okay and working accordingly.
The first day of shadowing was not that intense and focused on after birth, but Ana ensured me the next time would be much better.
Wednesday May 23rd the Atlantis Project site managers took all the fellows on an excursion hike to see a wonderful view of Zaragoza. We also went site seeing to experience the beautiful culture of Zaragoza.
Week one was a over all success and i can not wait to do more shadowing and learn more about Zaragoza!
