A group of physicians from the greater Sacramento area realized that the best way to serve the community was to train more physicians to meet the needs of our ever growing patient population, thus CNU Med was born. This past month our story comes full circle as 3rd year medical student Alex delivered his first baby at the same hospital he was born in!
✨F L A S H B A C K FRIDAY✨ to a few of the many long days I spent dedicated to getting my healthcare experience prior to PA school & learning all I can about the real world of medicine!.
PHOTO #1 : EMT 🚑 // I was on my way out to a country music festival in Central California in over 100F heat ☀️ - took lots of vitals, treated dehydrated patients, & backboarded plenty of patients that couldn’t handle their alcohol & decided to get into fights 👊🏼.
PHOTO #2 : Ortho Surgery Shadow 👩🏻⚕️ // After two shifts in the ER scribing, I slept 3 hours before driving an hour to shadow an ortho surgeon I met at a doctor’s Christmas party the month before!! He specialized in knee, hip, and ankle/feet. Long few days, but so worth it! 🙌🏼 #SutterHealth .
PHOTO #3 : ER Scribe 🏨 // The look of pure exhaustion; Easily my favorite job I’ve ever had. I miss the ER every day! What an incredible learning experience at Memorial Medical Center, Modesto 💕 #MemorialMedicalCenter

Thank you Lord for this tremendous gift! Getting a job as an RT2 in the Neonatal ICU this fast is something I only dreamed about. Beyond excited to join team Sutter! “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”

A treasured painted rock that I was gifted by a young patient at the hospital. These are the things that keep me going. Witnessing young people overcome so much during their hospitalizations and illnesses is truly the greatest gift. #childlifespecialist#childlife#sutterhealth#cpmc
Celebrating 1 year at #sutterhealth today! Thanks to this gem, she made this day, and quite frankly all the days this past year, so special! Thank you @ericamorita for being so patient with me since Day 1 and teaching me so much! You are so much more than a coworker to me— you are also a mentor and friend. ♥️
