Day in the Life: Pediatric Floor

Hello and welcome to another Medical Mondays! I have 4 weeks left of inpatient medicine before…(drumroll…) my vacation! (I’m so excited to see my friends and family again!)

Day in the Life: Intensive Care Unit

Hello and welcome to another Medical Mondays! My first rotation for the new year was in the intensive care unit, which, truth be told, I had been absolutely dreading.

The ICU in the hospital I’m at is a closed unit (only we should be putting in orders) divided into two teams: Scarlet + Silver. I …

Tzu Chi Community Health

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays!

I just came off an 80-hour work week (3 weeks down, 11 more to go!?) and spent my day off volunteering as a spotter/loader at a powerlifting meet in the area. (Guess who’s joining the Rutgers Powerlifting Team like she said she would!? ;P )

Do you like …

Day in the Life: Obstetrics

Happy Monday + welcome to another Medical Mondays and my fourth “Day in the Life” for residency–this time in Obstetrics!

Fun fact–when I was applying for residency programs/making my rank list, I was actually looking for unopposed programs because I thought it’d be cool to be able to do everything, but…I ended up falling in …

Breast Cancer Screening

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and since I already talked about Breast Cancer last October, this week’s topic is on breast cancer screening.

Day in the Life: Emergency Department

Happy Monday + welcome to another Medical Mondays and my third “Day in the Life” for residency!

Day in the Life: Practice Management

Happy Monday + welcome to another Medical Mondays and my second “Day in the Life” for residency!

This time around, my rotation was in practice management. Originally, I had not a clue as to what this was and figured it was on adulting and learning to bill/code.

The Health Benefits of Pokemon Go

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays!

Don’t you be giving me that look. This week’s topic qualifies (although I do have an obvious bias). It is a “just for fun” topic though, as that’s what games are meant to be.

My inner (and outer) nerd is super happy. :]

On the offchance that your …
