Today as I shadowed the supervisor at the clinic she started asking me questions about the internship I put in for at their performance center in the same building. The head guy over there got up with her, asked her about me, exactly I wanted, and what were the universities requirements. My responses were very basic, but I answered. She wrote some stuff down and then we went to get her patient. The whole feel of that convo left the impression that I may be getting that internship I put in for just in case the aide at the hospital didn't get into PA school.
Now here the thing...
Interning at the performance center is an UNPAID position. However, many athletes (including professional) come through there on the regular. I know for a fact this is where the Carolina Hurricanes come for treatment. So even though it's not a paid position, it sets me up to be at the right place at the right time for God knows what.
The aide position at the hospital is a PAID position that I pretty much got in the bag. It's stable, they are cool therapist over there, and they will work around my last semester of school.
From the outside it's like DUH, go with the aide position. But I don't want to miss out by not being at the performance center.
The supervisor said she'd tell me what she and the supervisor over the performance center are able to work out next Thursday. They have to figure out liability issues. But if they work something out how do I turn them down, do I stretch it until I sign the papers at the hospital, do I take this and drop the hospital.
I kinda hope they are not going to be able to work the liability thing out at the center. Yet kinda hope they do. I just want to be ready with a response either way the convo goes Thursday.
