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!
Yes. You read that right. This marks the last “Things I’ve Heard in Medical School” post. Why? Because I am done with 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
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’m halfway through family medicine! Although I am learning a lot about the field, I’m also learning a lot from my patients.
