Psychiatry – Day 18

I had to give a small presentation today. I chose to do it on psychedelics, specifically psilocybin because I love mushrooms (as a group of organisms). When my attending assigned me this project he said bonus points if teach him something new. Turns out he’s a part of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies…

It turned out ok, even if I literally taught him nothing and likely embarrassed myself with my limited knowledge of psychedelics and my butchering of the studies I talked about, we had a good discussion and I learned a lot and I think maybe I got bonus points for bringing up a topic that is near and dear to him.

Overall it was a tougher week with this attending, but I think I grew a lot. I just need to bring that with me into this final stretch in psychiatry.
