It’s kinda hard to believe I was spent 12ish hours a day 5 days a week for 4 weeks in this clinic (as of tomorrow), and was pretty much actively doing something the entire time. Surprisingly I don’t feel super burnt out and I think a big part of that is variety of things I get to see. Certainly there were days where I would be thankful for breaks and breathers throughout the day, but I’m a bit sad this rotation is coming to an end. I feel like I could very easily see myself as a resident here (should I be so lucky), but that’s all still a bit aways to see if MedPeds is even the path I want to go down. This isn’t the first time I’ve been a bit sad to leave rotation, but it may be the one where I felt the most validated and understood.
All that said I am also pretty excited to start pediatric cardiology next week. I love CHLA and I can’t want to be traipsing through her beautiful colorful halls once more.
