MedPeds – Day 1

Today was my first day back in a primary care clinic. There was a lot of things I missed about working in this setting. I missed all the good conversations. I missed the motivation interview. I missed the counseling and consoling and supporting. I missed seeing pediatric patients and babies. I missed the personalities of primary care providers. I think this experience so far has me thinking a couple things: (1) I definitely want to have some component of outpatient, longitudinal, primary care and (2) I definitely want to work with both kids and adults. But I kinda already knew both these things going into this rotation, this has just reinforced that (so far).

Also maybe for the first time ever I was told, “Wow you are fast.” Which probably was not a good thing and a result of being trained to have short and very focused patient encounters in my past few rotations.
