Just figured I'd make a little post since I haven't done so in a long time. I don't have anything too interesting to write about so I'll stick to what I know, myself.
Right now I'm living in Frederick, MD for a month doing my obstetrics/gynecology rotation...delivering babies and looking at vaginas...too many vaginas...hairy, unkempt vaginas. The gynecology aspect sucks, I have no interest in doing female physicals. The OB aspect is ok, I get to help with c-sections and deliver babies. Just started Monday so I havent done too much yet, I have sutured up some stomachs after a few c-sections today though. I still wanna do anesthesia. In the process of getting some anesthesia rotations currently.
On that note, I kind of have a dilemma. I've been dating my girlfriend for about 5 months now. We both live in Petersburg, WV for now (except this month when I'm in MD), but in the next couple months we start traveling around to different areas for 4th year rotations. Basically you wanna do rotations at places that have residency programs for your specialty so that they get to know you and possibly write you a letter of recommendation. Long story short, we will probably end up at different places for months at a time, then get accepted into residencies far apart. So you get the picture. Also there aren't any residency programs for anesthesia back home so if I do get accepted I'll be away for 4 more years =(.
I could go on, but I'm done taking my dump now.
