I was responsible for...
During my internship I assisted with exercise testing, setting work loads on cardio equipment relevant to MET goals. I assisted patients with warm ups, cool downs and weight training. I also took blood pressures, pulse ox readings and assisted with blood sugar testing.

I will never forget...
My most memorable experience was learning from the staff and interacting with the patients.

Advice for others...
Find a paid internship! This internship was really good in the fact that I learned a lot and the information was relevant to my career path.
