The Twin Valley Intern of the Month for November is Julia Danilak. Julia interns at Brandywine Hospital in the anesthesiology department observing operations and working closely with various surgeons.
Julia enjoys being in the medical environment and will also explore the criminal justice field with an additional internship at the Birdsboro Courthouse in the spring.
Julia’s Internship Coordinator, Angela Morgan, said, “I am impressed with Julia’s determination and follow-through concerning the large amount of paperwork she had to complete in order to take part in her internship; she clearly was focused and her patience and determination was admirable.”
Julia’s mother was also excited by her initiative saying, “This internship is contributing to her overall development and responsibility. Getting up and out of the house by 6:10 a.m. is no easy feat! Julia comes home and excitedly tells me stories about the new experiences every day at the hospital.”
Julia has the opportunity to “scrub in” on multiple operations with the surgeons and watch them perform. She has an insight that many of us cannot comprehend about the intricacies of surgery. When asked about her most interesting aspect, the tie was between the days she witnessed open heart surgery and lung surgery.
Julia spent an entire day at the hospital to watch the surgeons perform real, life-saving procedures only inches in front of her! Julia plans to study Pre-Med in college and pursue work in the medical field where she, too, can have an opportunity to save lives!
Best wishes, Julia, with your future career goals!
