Social Work Intern
Wesley Pediatric Clinic
For my school required practicum I am completing an internship at the Wesley Pediatric Clinic. My job is to be accessible for patients who are in need of finding community resources. I connect patients and their families with services they need which include, but are not limited to, health insurance, financial assistance (for food, clothing, utilities, rent), special education information, counseling information, etc. I am also working with a doctor who is trained in giving child abuse and sexual abuse exams. When patients come to the clinic for those exams, my job is to get a social history from the parents or caregivers of that child, record progress notes from that visit, and then pass along the reports to the necessary people. My job duties also include faxing reports, making phone calls, scheduling appointments, making connections, and bringing new resource information to the clinic.
