For four Eastern Technical High School students, preparing for allied health careers has taken them out of the classroom and into the heart of Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

The four seniors -- Amy Thomas, Sarah Hauf, Sarah Khalil and Donald Sarra – all participants in the Allied Health program at Eastern Tech – are engaged in a yearlong internship at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI). They work 12 hours each week in the emergency and critical care departments at JHMI in downtown Baltimore.

On September 19, the students had the opportunity to tour the JHMI helipad (the location on top of the hospital where the helicopter lands) as well as spend time with the pilot. They were allowed to board the helicopter and look at the supplies needed for life-saving flights.

The student interns have witnessed Emergency Room staff perform CPR and trauma care during their time at the hospital. The students are amazed at the well organized and choreographed skills of the ER staff. They described it as one fluid motion, the kind of care that is made possible when professionals work together and are always mindful of patients' needs.

Two additional seniors, Oyinkansola Famulegun and Rebekah Bateman, are also interns in the JHMI program. The Eastern Tech Allied Health faculty are extremely proud of all six of the interns. They consistently demonstrate excellence in a challenging work environment.
