Things I've learned so far in intern year
Cute cartoon, by Fizzy Blog: http://doccartoon.blogspot.com/2011/01/months-of-intern-year.html 1. I'm definitely an outpatient person. It's not that I don't like inpatient medicine.  It's more that every time I start an outpatient rotation, I feel like I ca...

I'm now 3 weeks into my intern year. I'm still in the PICU (i.e. Pediatric ICU for those who don't speak doctor), and I'm still afloat. In fact, I'm actually having a great time. I don't love seeing all these super critically...

Ever since I decided to become a doctor, I have been terrified of being an intern. My father was an intern a looong time ago when nobody had ever heard about duty hour restrictions or abuse. He literally worked 120 hours a we...

glad to have found your blog.  I am interested in possibly pursuing psychiatry and am currently in my junior year, majoring in psychology.  I am a 40 year old wife and mom that works fulltime and really not sure how to make my dream of med school a reality.  My son deals with chronic pain which might be somatoform in nature...2 years ago, he was diagnosed with tethered cord syndrome after 10 long months of intense and immobilizing pain.  The surgery itself was exploratory since 2 MRI's were inconclusive.  This entire ordeal, especially since we cannot find an organic cause for his pain returning... The way we've been treated by some medical professionals have been just despicable and I know there are other parents, kids, etc. that have to have dealt with the frustration.  I want to make a difference... any advice of which steps to take to make this a reality?  I am planning to take the MCAT sometime this year and expect my bachelors in psych. in 2016.  I realize it will be a long commitment and at my age...challenging...BUT I believe in this passionately and am very motivated.  Help>>??

Halfway done with intern year!
Whoa, that went pretty quickly.  Today marks the halfway point of my intern year.  I'm still alive, and in fact, I've still got some gas in the tank. If residency were a marathon, I'd be 4.37 miles into it. If residency were an Ironman, I'd be 23.4 miles in...

It's Friday night and I just got paid! For the first time ever! Part of me feels like this... But the other part of me feels like this.... I'm eating a grilled cheese, and ready for my bedtime at 8:30 pm on Friday night. ...

I love Grey's Anatomy, and I love Dr. Bailey, but I don't think I'd want her supervising me on my first day as an intern.  Luckily my residency program is a little more benign than this. Here are some quotes from Dr. Bai...
