You’ll be fine. You’re 25. Feeling [unsure] and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time.
Ah, the mantra of third year. This, or something similar speeds through my mind as my attending loudly and publicly points out my inadequacies. I’ve come to master my blank face as I nod in agreement that I pretty much know nothing. Needless to say though once you get use to it, its not too bad and generally what they’re saying is useful.
My face when my patient is lying to me and I know it
I miss my girl, 7 hours is far too far.
Outpatient peds rotation better known as Peds-cation
Peds is a 2 month rotation at my school, one inpatient, one outpatient. Inpatient is your typical 80hrs a week. Outpatient though, my schedule is 27hrs in the ER, 8 hrs in the newborn nursery, 12hrs in rheumatology clinic and 12hrs in an ENT clinic. 59 work hours total. Of course we have some lectures but only about 12 hours worth. So in my second month I’m totaling 72hrs, I’m gonna love peds-cation.
