Navy Hospitalman Recruit Samantha S. Himan recently graduated from the Basic Hospital Corps School at Naval Hospital Corps School, Great Lakes, Ill.
Himan is the daughter of Shirley and Mark Himan of San Martin and a 2000 graduate of Live Oak High School of Morgan Hill. She joined the Navy in January.
During the 14-week course, Himan learned a wide range of medical procedures used to provide first aid and assist Navy doctors and nurses. Himan also received an introductory introduction for service in a variety of medical environments, from fleet hospitals and shipboard medical departments to fleet Marine forces and medical administration offices.
Graduates’ newly acquired skills and knowledge will enable them to help provide quality health care to Navy and Marine Corps personnel and their families. Himan’s first assignment after school will involve direct patient care, but with her training, she can work in several areas, including first aid and assisting with minor surgery, pharmacy and laboratory analysis, patient transportation, and food service inspections.
