Internal Medicine – Day 4-7

It’s been hard to keep up with these, but to be honest, in terms of experience, a lot of these days are more or less the same. I go in, rush to not be late even though I’m already waking up at 4:30 AM, starting looking at what happened to my patients overnight, start reviewing the charts of the new patients so I can decide which one I want to take, go get sign-out from the overnight docs, come back, do more chart review, go see my patients, start some charting, go on rounds, do more charting… wait I am just now realizing I went through all of this in the last post I think. It is interesting to see the different pathologies though, and to think about some of the more difficult etiologies of refractory problems. Also so far I feel like I’ve gotten pretty lucky with patients being pretty open to talking to me. I also feel like my Spanish is improving… slowly. Definitely been helpful to be hearing a lot of medical Spanish on a daily basis. I’m also learning a lot of other stuffy too.

We also got a new attending today. She’s little more formal, but also seems like we are going to have very clear expectations of us for this coming week. Wish me luck.

TTITF:
(1) Friends who talk to you about new things and make me think about things in different ways, (2) lasagna, (3) finding something you thought you lost forever.
