One of the most exciting rites of passage in medical school is receiving your white coat. The white coat is a symbol of all the hard work that has led you to become a medical student as well as a symbol of the long road ahead to becoming a physician. It represents authority, professionalism, and dignity all of which are worn with pride when you slip on that coat for the very first time. My white coat ceremony was one of…

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…

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…

My first 3 months (omg has it already been 3 months?!) of school have proven to be the busiest time of my life. Between a full day of classes and labs, commuting back and forth to campus, and non-stop studying, I have…

I’m Finally a Medical Student!

1804 Views

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…

Decisions Decisions

I’m at a point in my life where every decision I’m faced with becomes this huge life-changing ordeal for me. I feel like every choice I make is going to affect the rest of my life and the consequences won’t be reversible. My Type A obsessive-compulsive-neurosis turns small decisions like figuring out what to do for dinner into life or death situations with repercussions that will affect my grandchildren. Should we go out to dinner or just go grocery shopping…
