I had goals this week. As I said last time, I got some tough feedback, some of which made no sense but some of which was warranted. And I wanted to fix some of those issues this week, specifically my presenting. I know what the general idea must be; you're more than six months into... Continue Reading →

I really got off the rails posting when NICU started, which I expected to happen but I really wasn't able to jump back in. It was 3 months of BS scheduling wise, so I will have separate thing about it because that was an Experience. Anyways, there are for sure better ways to start a... Continue Reading →

Another week, another Time on The Floor. I'm always surprised by the amount of pathology we get at our hospital. We get a lot of bread and butter pediatrics of course, your run of the mill RSV and croup and asthma but also things you may not see often in other places, like kawasaki's.  It's...

Nursery is finally done! The last week was insane! End on bang with a full census and just crazy things happening left and right. In from NICU out from NICU, sugar babies, coombs, bilis, light and all that jazz. It was really a culmination of everything we'd experienced over the last three weeks with a... Continue Reading →

Sorry it's a late post but working 11 to 14 hours days is making me very sleep happy. Understandably. As my first week on nursery, me and my cointern got absolutely slammed. As in the nursery was close to full almost all week which is a big deal when you aren't well versed in all... Continue Reading →

This week was a hard lesson in you have no idea what you've gotten yourself into. Although it didn't start out that way. Finishing up my month on clinic, I was kinda of given a lot of freedom in terms of seeing patients on my own from start to finish. Nothing was too complicated but... Continue Reading →
