A Day in the Life: Dermatology

Saturday, June 23, 2018

7:15 am - alarm goes off. This rotation I get to "sleep in" most days because clinic starts around 9:15/9:30/10 depending on the day except Wednesday when we started at 7am.

Studying for the PANCE & Rosh Review Giveaway

Sunday, June 3, 2018

The big day has been set in stone, my friends. I have officially signed up to take the PANCE on August 29th, 2018! It was such a surreal moment and even though its a overwhelming thought, I cannot wait to go from PA-S to PA-C!

Even since before signing up for the PANCE, I had been on the lookout for resources to help me prep for it. I like to quiz myself on all that I learn and have always share my experience and tips with you all. Today, I'm collaborating with Rosh Review to offer a PANCE 365 subscription for free!!! Details are included at the end of this post.

A Day in the Life: Emergency Medicine

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

10:00 am - alarm goes off (I know this might seem like I'm "sleeping in" but my shift ended at 1 am that morning, drove an hour to get home, and went to bed around 3 am). Waking up is not super easy but gotta do what you gotta do.

Hooding Ceremony and PA school update

Sunday, May 6, 2018

Hi guys! It's been a while since I've updated you all on my life. I am done with 6/8 rotations!!! My last rotation was emergency medicine and I absolutely loved it! I loved the variety of conditions you get to see and treat in the ER and how there is never a dull day. Even though I caught the stomach bug from one of the several patients we saw in the ER with it, it was still my favorite rotation (after surgery). The preceptors I worked with were all so intelligent and willing to teach and the procedures I got to do during my time there made this rotation a fulfilling experience. I will be sharing a day in the life post about that tomorrow! And as always, being in Chattanooga, my favorite city in the country, is always such a joyful experience.

How to Choose Your Elective Rotation

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

I've had multiple people talk to me recently about picking an elective rotation and how they should go about making this decision. It seems to me that most of us have various different specialties that we like and its hard to pick just one (or two) for your elective. I'm going to share my personal thought process that I went through to decide what I would chose as my elective. I'm sure there are many other ways to pick an elective but these are just the few things I thought about.

Starting Clinical Rotations

Saturday, March 10, 2018

I remember being so excited yet nervous about clinical rotations! So far these are the rotations I've completed: Two Family Medicine rotations, Internal Medicine, and General Surgery. I'm currently on Psychiatry and next up I have Emergency Medicine, Dermatology (as my elective) and Pediatrics in that order!

End Of Rotation Exam Study Plan

Friday, March 2, 2018

We have been halfway done with clinical year since early February!! That is such an exciting and thrilling thought. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am soaking up time with my classmates and being a student for as long as I can, even on the most challenging of days. I'm currently on Psychiatry for my 5th rotation and wrote a post sharing what that entails!
