A Day in the Life: Internal Medicine

Monday, October 30, 2017

5:55 am - alarm goes off. Today I'm rounding on patients at the hospital with my substitute preceptor, so I wake up earlier. My preceptor is on vacation so for the time being,  I'm rotating with an attending who also works at my preceptor's practice.

How to Study for Clinical Medicine in PA School

Saturday, August 26, 2017

Clinical medicine is your meat and potatoes of your didactic year. Once you are past the non-clinical classes, you will spend majority of your time learning diseases and how to diagnose and treat them in your clin med classes. We had three semesters of clin med at our school and we learned by organ systems such as cardiovascular, pulmonology, GI, hematology, etc.

Final Thoughts on Didactic

Friday, August 11, 2017

We did it people!!! As of last Friday, didactic year is finally over. I have no idea how but somehow I survived the last 15 months and made it to the light at the end of the tunnel. This past week has been our week off so I have been enjoying my study free time. I thought it was time to sit down and gather my thoughts about this crazy journey and share them with you all.

Must Have Apps for PA School

Saturday, July 15, 2017

I have recently been asked by new PA students on Instagram what apps I use and find helpful in PA school so I thought I'd share it on the blog. I'd like to clarify that I am not getting any compensation by any company and these opinions are completely my own and are based on the experiences I've had with them.

Third Semester of PA School

Saturday, May 27, 2017

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I'm finally sitting down to reflect upon and write about our spring semester of didactic year. As you may have seen before, I've written about my first and second semesters after finishing finals. It has crossed my mind several times but I have been avoiding writing about it, mainly because I didn't want to think about how hard spring semester was. I was just glad to be done and never wanted to think about it again. However, I think I have finally recovered enough to be able to sit down and share my experience from the last 4 months.
