Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you haven't completely decided on whether the medical field is a direction in which you might pursue, then this class can help you make that decision. You are able to gain first hand sight of what the medical field looks like, ether than basing it off of Grey's Anatomy or Chicago Med. You also get opportunities to use medical skills such as performing vitals, making beds, transporting patients, etc. Also the more you rotate the more you get to know the staff and you become apart of their family, and the hospital becomes a place of belonging for you.
This course has shed so much insight to the direction I want to go. I always knew that I wanted to go into the medical field, but I never knew exactly what part. This class has showed me that I do not want to be a nurse or a nurse practitioner, but that I'd rather go and get my MD or continue into research.

Advice for students:
Participate. This class is an application based class, so when taking the pre-req's for this class, HST 1, make sure to be active in the class. Also take it seriously, when you're in the hospitals and talking with the physicians they don't dumb it down that much for you just because you're a student. If you take HST1 seriously, then you'll actually know what's going on and makes more hands on rotation for you.
