This past weekend, I had just left my first weekend shift for my Medicine rotation which was only for a few hours and yet very interesting. I came back home, jumped right back into bed, relaxed looking at the snow falling outside the window, and hopped on social media to past some time before I… Continue reading How about those “-isms”
Yesterday, I got to be the patient. Experience the other side of the chair and honestly by the end of it I was jumping out of seat, ready to head back home. I personally haven't had a check up since it was mandatory I got one before starting college years ago, so its been about… Continue reading Let’s say you’re the patient this time…
I made it. 7.5 weeks of Surgery. Done. And in my opinion, it flew by way too fast 😦 I finished up the last few weeks with a week of Anesthesia and one week of MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery/Bariatric Surgery) which was honestly the most fun I've had on any rotation yet. I also… Continue reading Surgery Clerkship ✔
So I am in the middle of my 5th week out of 8 in my surgery clerkship, and my feelings haven't changed so much - I'm still enjoying myself [WHO AM I?!?!?!] Since last time, I have finished my Transplant rotation and yet that Transplant life just keeps calling me back. It is everywhere. I… Continue reading Surgery (Half way point)
I've started Surgery! It's literally only been 2 days but I've already made a 360 degree switch about how I feel about it. I said 360 because before starting, I thought I'd really enjoy Surgery. I've enjoyed being in the OR before in HS and college, however I was very biased and never got the… Continue reading Surgery: It’s going well 🙂 (Day 2, that’s why)
Yet another rotation bites the dust. **Skip towards the bottom if you just want my Shelf studying thoughts or keep reading if you also want to hear my ramblings about pediatrics because you'll get to the shelf stuff anyway :)** This one definitely marked the start of a long uphill journey that is to come… Continue reading All da babies!

So I recently transitioned to the inpatient world of Pediatrics and my oh my is it a difference. My group of classmates who are on the same track as I am are the last group to have an inpatient experience. This entire summer and change, I have been immersed and "mastered" the ins and outs… Continue reading I’m not an Imposter
Fun fact: My radiology clerkship actually finished a week ago and I'm just getting to writing about it. Lo siento, I've gotta do better at spilling my thoughts more frequently because I'm on the "lighter" rotations and I'm already slacking. It was yet another 2 week rotation which was a perfect amount of time to… Continue reading Radiology Clerkship ✔, short & sweet
Happy July! The start of another month into another year of this thing. I am almost finished with my second rotation which is in Radiology. It is another 2 week rotation so I'll wrap up my feelings and thoughts about it as a whole at the end. For right now, I'll say that it is going… Continue reading What do you do about the doubt and uncertainty?
AND IT WAS AMAZING !!!! My first rotation was through the Geriatrics program at one of my school's rotation sites. It was 2 weeks long and I feel as though I have been spoiled so I'm going to have to consciously make an effort not to compare my future rotations to this one - it… Continue reading Soooo, I finished my first rotation already?
