This (Last) Week in Med School...

I should have posted this last week but you know how that goes...

Last week was our ear, nose, and throat (Otolaryngology) specialty diagnosis session during ICM. So far, I've had an open mind about what I want to specialize in despite previously favoring ENT, but this experience gave me that feeling AGAIN that I might end up going the ENT route.  Even during the didactic lectures I was loving it.

After a demo from one of the faculty otolaryngologists, we broke off into examining rooms to go through the basic ear, nose, and throat exam on each other. And thennnnnn I volunteered for a laryngoscopy!!! This is big because I am not one to normally volunteer for stuff, but my group watched a resident travel through my nostril, down my throat, and to my vocal chords. They numbed my nose - which was a little uncomfortable at first, but after that it was smooth sailing. It was awesome!!!!

Here's a video of what they did (but this isn't me...lol):

 

My IUSM blog is struggling so I think I'm going to make this a weekly occurrence... You care.
