Currently sitting in the Southside office with the other students waiting for the next patients. IM is not too interesting and I really don't enjoy it that much. A lot of hypothyroidism, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, chronic pain, and the likes. Mainly patients with chronic conditions that come for follow-up appointments and medication refills. Definitely missing emergency medicine and surgery at this point!
At least the students are very likable! I'm with 1 PA student from my program, 1 from another school, a NP student, and a pharmacy student. Me, my classmate, and the pharm student all live near each other, so we carpool and stuff. Another perk of working in this rotation are the hours! Mon, Tue, Thur 9:30ish-4:30ish or 5. Off Wednesday and off every other Friday. So that's nice!
So yea…boring update for a boring rotation. Who knows if I'll have anything interesting in the next few weeks to talk about! Can't wait for ortho!
