To all my countless fans,
After a long delay, I’m back again! I’ll keep this post short and sweet and make it more of a picture blog. But first I’ll update you on what I’ve been up to. Since my last post, I finished my emergency medicine rotation. Having had all my third year rotations and my sub-internships under my belt, it made it a really enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Never knowing what’s coming in on a shift and always doing the initial work-up, it helped me improve my physical exam skills and hone my skills as a diagnostician. You can pretty much just call me Dr. House now 😉 (by the way, House was a graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School #ftw). If I wasn’t doing internal medicine, I think I’d probably pursue emergency medicine!
The big thing that all fourth years are up to right now is interviewing for residency. I’m currently taking the Advanced Medical Therapeutics online course, which is very useful and will help once residency actually starts. It also allows me to have my own schedule! Currently, I’ve interviewed at 3 places and have liked them all. For medicine, the day consists of a program overview, sitting in on morning report where the chief residents present a patient case, a hospital tour, and interviews by usually two physicians, one of which seems to be in your personal career interest. Oh yea, and a free dinner and drinks the night before! Yummy! 😛
Enough of this jibber-jabber, let’s get on with the picture show!
Well that’s it for it now. I’ll take some pix from the interview trail and post again soon!
