Hopes and Dreams

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays! I’m going to be talking about hopes and dreams today!

Some time ago, I read Dr. Pamela Wible’s book, Pet Goats & Pap Smears and wrote a review about it on Project Velociraptor (aka FM Student). (In case you’re new here, it’s a project that my friend Pixie and …

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 )

In light of the recent political climate and my complete lack of faith in the continuation of women’s reproductive health rights, I figured I’d discuss the different options available right now.

Medical Interpretation

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays! As some of you may know, I used to volunteer as a medical interpreter and patient advocate at a student-run free clinic in California. Even after I graduated from college, I’d sneak back there on the weekends to help out whenever I was free. :]

My experiences …

I was the last of the interns to start inpatient service and my last call day was all the way back in early August. The last time I’d even roamed the floors of our …

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 …
