Rotation #3 & 4: Internal Medicine

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Internal medicine is one of our core rotations we do for 5 months out of the year.  It’s a busy rotation with long days….some days longer than other.  The past two months flew by faster than ever.  By the end of the 8 weeks I really was ready for my alarm to NOT go off at 5:01 every morning…..and ready for a break from some of the 30 hour shifts!  Even with all of that, it’s amazing to think back at how much I’ve learned in the past few weeks.  It all starts off being scary writing an order for Tylenol and by the end of the rotation at least having enough confidence to feel comfortable writing basic orders from start to finish with a little more authority!

The end of the first month I was lucky enough to end with a “golden weekend” and got  a chance to go to Yellowstone for the weekend with Kim and Brian.  More on my trip in the next blog…
