Senior Sehlah Butt worked at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Pakistan as an intern in three different departments: Chemotherapy, Outpatient, and the Emergency Room. She worked alongside physicians and nurses to assist by translating applications and patient progress reports from English to Urdu for the patients and their families and making sure each patient room was well equipped with new blankets, pillows, and toiletries. She also worked alongside Department Chairs in the Outpatient Department by translating their hospital protocols, training manuals, and other documents to English in order to teach staff members how important it is to communicate in English with certain patients.
