While I continue to drag my feet through pediatrics (also please don’t ask me how pediatrics is going… my answer will not be pretty), I figured the least I could do is post another set of silly quotes from adult inpatient medicine! Can you guess who is who? Here’s Things I Heard Residency: Volume 5!Continue reading
I know I disappeared after starting this new series, but I had a valid reason, I swear. Residency is… a lot. Especially if you are surrounded by the fools I am with! So far I’ve been popping joints back into place in the Emergency Department and trying to figure out the insulin sliding scale over on inpatient medicine. And of course, you can’t forget outpatient clinic. So here’s some quotes that I’ve picked up along the way!
Oh hey! I’m glad Things I Heard in Residency is off to a great start. Thank you to everyone that has asked about it! Don’t worry, I’m still collecting quotes for the next post, but for now, I thought I could share some of the ridiculous things I heard on the interview trail. These lovely quotes came from fellow applicants, attendings, program directors and their staff. Hope you enjoy Things I Heard on the Interview Trail!
I just finished my second week of residency! Well, the second week of orientation. And let me tell you, I am way more disoriented than ever. But I’m happy because I am at my absolute dream program! I am blessed to have matched at my top choice for family medicine. And I am even more blessed to be with the class that I am with! Not only are they so kind, funny and caring, but they are also providing me with great content to write about. All have been warned — so I bring to you: Things I Heard in Residency: Volume 1.
Fourth year means a lot of free time. A lot of free time means time to sleep and binge on Netflix. Which means I totally forgot to update this blog. I would say sorry, but I am not. I deserve that sleep! But anyway, I figured I would share the last segment of my surgery quotes (because yes, there was that much nonsense said during those 12 weeks). So here is Volume 32 of Things I Heard in Medical School!
Another week, another blog post. With surgery being twelve weeks long, I had a lot of time to collect quotes. So here is Things I Heard in Medical School: Volume 31 — featuring more surgical debauchery! Continue reading
Wow I’m back and I’m a fourth year now. What. WHAT. Back to your regularly scheduled posts! I hope… Here’s TIHIMS: Vol. 30! Theme of this week: surgery!
You know how I said that I was going to post more and keep this blog up-to-date? HA y’all should know better than to trust me on that. Since I’ve been gone, I have completed my OBGYN, Pediatrics and Surgery rotations! And all I have left is Internal Medicine. Wow, time flies when you are stressed out and procrastinate. To make it up to y’all, here are some things I heard during my OBGYN rotation!
I’m halfway through family medicine! Although I am learning a lot about the field, I’m also learning a lot from my patients. And by learning, I mean listening to them say or do the most ridiculous things. And the attendings and residents aren’t that far behind either. Hope you enjoy this edition of Things I Heard in Medical School! Let me know in the comments down below.
When you get assigned to the Emergency Department with psychiatry, you imagine seeing a lot of individuals with drug overdoses and suicide attempts. What you don’t expect is the horrendously foul (yet ridiculously entertaining) language that comes with the territory. And not from the patients — from the nurses. So here’s Things I Heard in Medical School: Vol. 23!
