Since November 2016, I have been part of the pilot program that SMA launched. It consists of doing most rotations with SMA professionals. It allowed me to learn firsthand how to become an outstanding provider, regardless of the preceptor’s specialty. I was able to become very familiar with the multiple chronic conditions patients have in the underserved areas, apply techniques and do procedures that none or very few of my classmates have had the opportunity to do. Aided and had direct involvement in General surgery (incision, suturing, gowning, O2 administration, laparoscopic assistance), Urgent care (bimanual exams, vertigo assessment, ear lavage, injections, eye staining, nail removal, etc.), Emergency Medicine (UMC-suturing, incisions, I & D, slit lamp exam, injections, burn care), Rheumatology (corticosteroid injections in multiple joints), OB/GYN (pap smears, vaginal and C section deliveries, pregnancy evaluation and follow ups) and Dermatology (IL facial and body injections, facial and body cryotherapy, numbing injections, punch and shave biopsies, skin tag removal, etc.) Observed multiple and various procedures during my surgical rotation: Cataracts surgery, cholecystectomies, hemorrhoidectomies, carpal tunnel, hip replacement, and more orthopedic surgeries.
