The familiar saying “good things come in pairs” hits home for Debra Reisinger, a senior in psychology. Through the co-op program, she has learned so much by working in two professional positions.
In the Emergency Department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, she works as a clinical research coordinator. Amid the hustle and bustle of the ED, Debra screens patients to check eligibility for numerous studies conducted by the hospital. If people are interested, she then implements the necessary procedures for participation in the studies. The opportunity to work with a diverse population has provided valuable experience for her future.
As a paralegal intern at GE Aviation, Debra has been able to establish a great network for her future. Whether she is working among lawyers, hosting social events at Sharon Woods, or keeping in contact with workers from the UK and Italy, Debra continues to sharpen her communication skills.
Debra has had such a positive experience through the Mount’s Co-op program that she recommends the program to other Mount students:
“The Co-op program not only gives you a first-hand experience in the career you hope to have in the future, it also gives you a step in the door after graduation. A majority of employers want experienced graduates and the Mount’s Co-op experience gives students that and so much more.”
