GPA 3.0

GRE - not taken yet

patient experience:

>500 hours with busy volunteer ambulance corps ~700 calls

 

related experience:

1 year part time medical technologist

1.5 years tech in a CV surgical research lab

15 years in pharmaceutical clinical research

 

The funny thing is that my most relevant experience may be my first job out of school. Even though humans were not involved, I got to scrub in on CPB procedures as scrub nurse and first assist. I was also often the perfusionist. On slow days, I got to go to the OR and watch one of the true medical deities (if there is such a thing) in the OR (man did he intimidate me :D)
