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
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’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
Before I start off my final term of basic sciences, I wanted to share some of the funny thing I heard during the Hyperbaric Medicine Selective I did! Which by the way — is AMAZING! If you have questions, let me know! Here are some of the ridiculous things I heard over the last week.
Y’all probably thought this blog died. It didn’t. I just decided to spend my break binging on cake and Netflix. I am not ashamed. But now that I am back, so are the posts! So to kick off 2017 I bring you Front Row Views, where I tell you what I see and hear in medical school, but with my own snarky and heavily-laced-in-sarcasm commentary. I swear I was listening to the actual lecture, but this stuff was just way more interesting. Sorry mom.
Before we start the bulk of Term 2, I thought we could take a trip down memory lane and laugh at some things we heard in Term 1. So without further ado, here are the final quotes I have from our first semester! Enjoy! Continue reading
