NOC Student Completes Internship at St. Mary's Hospital

Braylee Culver, NOC-Enid pre-engineering major, spent her summer interning at St. Mary’s hospital in the Healthcare Technology management department.

Culver shadowed Troy Wood, a biomedical engineer, to better understand his duties and responsibilities. She inventoried and tagged medical equipment before placing machines with patients. She also retrieved tagged equipment from departments within the hospital

The Enid native said the experience helped her “understand the duties and responsibilities of a biomedical engineer and will help guide my future career planning.”

Before being offered this internship Culver was strongly considering a switch in majors. She feared that without connections to the industry, finding a job would be impossible.

Through the internship, she discovered a passion for this type of work. Culver said, “Everyone knows by now that technology is the future. Biomedical engineering ties technology and medical together, therefore almost always ensuring a job.”

Culver credits the community of employees at St. Mary’s for making the internship such a positive experience. “From day one, I was treated like part of the staff,” said Culver. She participated in meetings, toured the hospital with the regional director, and shadowed employees.

Culver said she was surprised to discover how technologically advanced St. Mary’s was. She was impressed with everything from the pharmacy to the inventory systems.

Culver credits Troy Wood, biomedical engineer, with making the internship such a great experience. Troy taught Braylee that “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

Before beginning the internship, Culver only knew the position would involve medical equipment. She was excited for the opportunity but had never considered this type of position as a future career. Culver said that after the first few hours on the job, she was in love. “I loved the environment, the work, the responsibilities. I can definitely see myself moving forward in this career,” said Culver.

After graduating from NOC, Culver plans to attend UCO and receive a degree in biomedical engineering. She would like to pursue a career with a UHS hospital.

Culver is an Enid native who graduated from Enid High School in 2016.

Thanks for this article. I'd also like to express that it can often be hard if you are in school and simply starting out to initiate a long credit standing. There are many students who are just trying to endure and have an extended or favourable credit history are often a difficult matter to have. egeceakeaedk

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

be giving us something enlightening to read?

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and

The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I
wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
