Pediatric Cardiology – Day 5

It’s been weird going from my last rotation to this one. In Med-Peds I was decently independent, able to see patients on my own, propose a plan, write notes, etc. Now I’m pretty much shadowing. It’s not like the encounters in cardiology are anything beyond my ability, they are actually pretty straightforward in terms of plans and history, I think it’s just difficult for the attendings to maybe trust a student when they are not used to having one. I think a big part of this rotation for me is taking initiative and asking for more responsibility if I want it and to essentially show what I can do, but also without being a burden to the attendings or anyone I’m working with (i.e. slowing them down).
