Seniors Kyliah Walker and Aniekan Ibanga had the opportunity to work along side doctors, nurses, residents and fellow researchers this summer at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Read below what each student had to say about their summer experience at CHOP...
Kyliah Walker
"This summer at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, I was fortunate enough to work alongside various types of nurses. I mainly shadowed nurse practitioners in the general surgery clinic and the registered nurses on the inpatient floors. I visited patients in their rooms and sat in on their follow-up doctor visits. During my time at CHOP, I went to the operating room twice, once with Dr. Doolin and once with Dr. Hedrick. The surgeries I watched was a vaginoscopy and a removal of a uterus on a complex cloacal patient. I also saw a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair on a baby. I enjoyed shadowing a NICU nurse the most especially because I love babies! This experience has taught me so much and has reassured me that I want to be a nurse practitioner after completing my education."

Aniekan Ibanga

"Over the summer, I had the chance to work at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. It was a wonderful experience for me. I had the opportunity to work along side doctors, residents, and fellow researchers who worked throughout CHOP. I learned basic skills that are needed in the medical field and fundamental technology skills. I took part in sending out surveys to patients who had undergone breast surgery in past medical care. I also photographed 100 people on a 3D camera thus making avatars to understand what is the average size of a nose. CHOP had to be the best summer job I have had while in high school. The experience exposed me to a lot of new things in the medical field and gave me an idea of what to look forward to in the future."
