This month–and this rotation–has flown by so quickly. While it had its ups and downs, I did learn a lot of things at Kaiser. I came home everyday just down in the dumps because it had been so mentally exhausting. Sad part is, that is real life. It is so weird to work no longer on your own time, but rapidly because someone’s life literally depends on it. I was fortunate to work on disease states like high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol because it so greatly affects so many people. My final evaluation was in the form of an oral exam–terrifying!
That being said, here are some highlights of this past rotation and my daily dose!
I still believe that this is the calm before the storm. Luckily, I get Labor Day off, but then I start a 10 week marathon at one of our really big hospitals here. I have already gotten an e-mail that states I will be assigned a pager. How grown up–yet outdated!
Have a great weekend! and be safe!
