Life as Medic - Elizabeth (Ocean College Student)

"Though people may suspect that as a Medic you sit around a lot and well… have a lot of free time to do whatever you want, that is not the case, at least not entirely. On my first day as a Medic I was quite busy. Starting with the preparation of the workshop that I´m going to hold on Monday (don’t tell anyone but it’s going to be on burns). Then, as fate would have it, we had a few small injuries. There is a phenomenon to observe around this time of the voyage were people start to get a bit careless around the ship, which in some cases leads to injuries like trapped fingers, or slipping and falling down. All incidents need to be reported and/or treated. The number one priority is to keep everyone healthy and happy. With the happy part it’s not always that easy. I must say that I'm very touched by the trust the others have given me so far. So when someone gets hurt, ideally they come and get me. I take a look at the injury and take care of it the best I can"
