I've been on a sports medicine rotation for the last 3.5 weeks.  This generally involves rotating between clinics of the three sports medicine attendings, training rooms, teaching time, and event coverage.  But yesterday we spent the afternoon over at the hospital covering the family medicine inpatient service.  The residents had a seminar all afternoon, which left the attending all alone with a lot of patients... so we went over to substitute doctor.

When you haven't done inpatient medicine in about 6 months (or really even general family medicine...), you forget a lot!  The service census was high (lots of patients), and many of them were complicated.  It was a nice refresher to do some plain old general medicine, but I'm definitely going to need a little brushing up before I start intern year!

I've got a little free time this week, so look out for a gear post today... it's been a while since I posted one!



About Me

I am a Family Medicine intern at a community hospital in Indiana, navigating the new world of being a physician. I am privileged to work in a field I love, where every day is a new and unpredictable challenge.
I am not only a doctor, but also a cyclist, runner, DIYer in the making, lover of the outdoors, traveler, and human.
Human, MD is a glimpse into the world of a young doctor who is just trying to stay true to herself through the grueling whirlwind of residency.
