Mallory Thompson 13: Summer Internships

Mallory Thompson ’13 spent her summer in Boston interning at Shriners Hospital for Children and at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

At Shriners, Mallory was an operating room family liaison, which involved updating patients' family members while they were undergoing surgery. As a pre-med student, Mallory took advantage of the opportunities to observe and talk with doctors and nurses by asking questions regarding various cases. Shriners is a non-profit organization and most of the patients come from outside the U.S., brought to the hospital via outreach programs for treatment. For these patients, the doctors are not only concerned about their medical treatment while at the hospital, but also what will happen to them once they complete their surgical treatment. This experience peaked Mallory's interest in public health, a subject she hopes to learn more about while in school.

At Beth Israel, Mallory was an intern in the cardiac stress testing lab. Her internship involved prepping patients and interpreting exercise or pharmacological tests to then be sent back to the patient's doctor. Prepping patients involved placing electrodes on the patient's chest and connecting them to a machine that allowed the doctors to see the electrocardiogram (EKG) of the patient's heart. Mallory helped monitor the EKG system during the test and was trained to recognize any abnormalities that could occur during the test. She also compiled patient histories before the test, which consisted of looking into the patient's medical record and noting anything of importance that the physiologist might want to know before performing the test. Her internship at Beth Israel was extremely eye-opening for Mallory thanks to her supervisor, who was incredibly invested in the teaching process, having weekly lunches with the interns and testing them on unique cases he had seen.

In addition to taking on two internships this past summer, Mallory also took summer classes at Boston University. She is currently in her senior year and is very excited to see what the future brings!

  • The Week @ Webb - Theme Week Edition

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a unique look into the activities both on and off Webb's campus. This past week was our annual class spirit event called Theme Week. Each grade level dresses up in the announced theme for four days to gain points for their respective class. At the end of the week, each of the classes performs a skit that will also count towards their overall point total. It's a hilarious week for students and faculty alike, so I hope you enjoy some of the standout costumes and images I collected in this gallery.
