The last ePathway Academy visit of the summer was to Valley Children’s Hospital. Senior VP Lynn Ashbeck welcomed students with an overview of the hospital and its place in the healthcare ecosystem of the region. After a tour of the hospital with recruiters Dennis Yee and Tracy DeYoung, students learned about Valley Children’s leadership and innovation in telemedicine, careers in occupational therapy, hospital careers (and hiring) in pharmacy, the life of a charge nurse, current pathways for physicians, the high-tech world of medical imaging, and he ins and outs of IT security at a hospital. Students walked away impressed by the hospital’s corporate culture, the range of experts working on any given area in the hospital, the nature of cross-functional teams, and the pace of work when lives are on the line. Thank you, Valley Children’s Hospital, for a wonderful visit!
