Maevn Uniforms EON Scrubs Review

When I first got accepted to medical school, one of the things I was most excited for was being able to wear scrubs. (So silly, but I’m sure many others can relate.) Wearing scrubs meant looking like an actual medical student and being one step closer to becoming a doctor. Plus, is there anything better than basically wearing your PJ’s to school/work every day?! Little did I know that not all scrubs are equal. When it was time for me to…

StethoHope Collaboration

My health is something I often take for granted, which is easy to do when you live in a country with high standards of living and (relatively) accessible healthcare. If I get sick, all I have to do is call up my primary care provider and get it checked out. If it’s more serious than that I can hit up one of the many urgent care clinics that seem to be on every other block. Worst case scenario, I call…

Yesterday I received my final anatomy practical grade, and I have to admit… I’m pretty damn proud of myself. There are few things that feel better than receiving a well-deserved 98% on an exam you studied your ass off for. Conversely, there are few things that feel worse than receiving a 79% on an exam you know you could have studied harder for. During my first semester of medical school, I experienced both of these scenarios, and although the 79% sucked, it taught…

 Medical school is nothing like undergrad. Absolutely nothing. Over the years, I’ve had to change my study habits many times. In high school, I hardly had to study in order to get straight A’s (why couldn’t I have kept this up!?). I could do well on tests just by paying attention in class. I didn’t start essays until the day before they were due. Now that I think about it, I wasn’t all that hard of a worker. Things came pretty…

I’m Finally a Medical Student!

Soooooo I’m a TERRIBLE blogger. Since my last post, things got a little A LOT bit crazy. In the past two and a half months, I traveled to China to visit my family, moved into my new apartment, underwent an extremely stressful Joint Commission review at my hospital, and started medical school. During orientation, I kept having this overwhelming feeling of “this is where I’m supposed to be.” I can’t really explain it, but it’s as if all of my…

The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest

489 Views

Do you want to know the truth about cancer? I certainly do. Last week, I heard about a documentary series called “The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest” from Organic Olivia, one of my favorite health blogs. If you read my personal statement, you know that cancer has always been a field of research that has been near and dear to my heart. It is such an interesting, complex disease and is one of the greatest medical mysteries of all…
