I work as a patient care tech on a med/surg floor now. i also recently took part in an international humanitarian disaster course. When I graduate I would like to work in the emergency dept. Eventually, I would like to be part of the trauma team as well. I know that takes experience and training. In addition, I would also like to get involved in an organization that provides medical relief in times of disaster such as tornado, earthquake, or hurricane just to name a few.
I guess I'm asking is there anything that I can do this summer to help me become more qualified to get hired on in the emergency department? I know it is highly competitive. I'm just looking to get some experience that makes me stand out from the rest.
I would also be interested in any training that would better prepare me to join an emergency response team in the future.
