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!
Finally — another post! And this one features the last of the quotes from family medicine! It’s a short one, I know, but I hope you can still find something to laugh at! Hope you enjoy Volume 28!
I just started my family medicine rotation! So far, I am loving it. The residents are helpful, the attendings are great, and the patients are all over the place. And here I thought I was going to hear the craziest stuff during psychiatry — I have been proven wrong. So here is Vol. 25! Continue reading
I just finished my first clinical rotation for year three! Though I will miss psychiatry, I am excited to go to family medicine! But before I start this next rotation, I wanted to share the last batch of quotes from my final days in the psychiatry ED. This one is definitely shorter than last week’s post, so make sure to check out Volume 23 if you haven’t already! Continue reading
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!
I’m officially two-thirds of the way done with my first clinical rotation! Psychiatry has actually been a lot of fun. Not only did I really get to appreciate the field and learn from amazing attendings, I also collected tons of great quotes. So with that, here’s Volume 22! Continue reading
I’m back! I took a bit of a break from blogging to focus on exams and learning how to become a functioning member of society again. And now, I am officially a third year medical student! Though I don’t have any more formal lectures in a classroom, I still get to hear ridiculous things from doctors, nurses, residents, patients and anyone in between. If you are within 10 feet from me, chances are that I am listening to whatever ridiculous thing you are saying.
As my first week of rotations comes to an end, I wanted to recap my time with some of the things I heard in the halls of the hospital. So, without any more stalling, here is TIHIMS: VOL 21! Continue reading
