CCCH welcomes new medical student
Chase County Community Hospital (CCCH) has recently welcomed a new medical student to its team for the next month. Amy Dreessen is a third year medical student who attends the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha.
Dreessen attended Southwest Minnesota State for her undergrad where she received a double major in biology and chemistry.
She also played first base for Southwest Minnesota State’s softball team all four years of her undergraduate college career.
“I made life long friendships there. Softball taught me teamwork and showed me what work ethic is,” said Dreessen.
Dreessen is a third-year medical student. Third-year medical students have to complete a total of 12 clinical rotations, each lasting four weeks. “I’m excited to finally get out of the classroom, and into the action. In the classroom it is about exam scores. This is now about someone’s life,” said Dreessen.
