Moving Right Along!

Post-clincal morning heading to pump LOL
This morning I took my Radiology clerkship final. I don't know if it felt like this for everyone, but September went by soooo fast - I almost think it went by faster than my vacation month. Anyway, my radiology month was really lecture-heavy with my last week including 5 mornings of clinical time in the CT/MRI abdominal reading room at University Hospital. Being on a clerkship after you have committed to a specialty is awesome because even though my residents knew I wasn't going into radiology they really took the time to explain any female pelvic imaging that came up. I saw a number of gynecological cancers and even a fetal MRI! All of it was really, really interesting!

In other news, as of this week I have four interviews booked for residency! Even though I am trying not to obsess about the process, I can't help but compulsively check my email for ERAS (the application website) notifications. I am getting more excited by the minute! My next mission is to find a fly tailored suit, and I need to get it together because I have been stuffing my face like there is no tomorrow. I don't know what is wrong with me. I'M. SO. HUNGRY.

On October 1st, I start my Internal Medicine Sub-internship. This is another required clerkship during fourth year. For the next month, I will be treated like and act like an intern (first year resident). I am really excited about this taste of my life come July 2014! All of our third year clerkships required us to follow 2-3 patients at once, but this time we are expected to take charge of at least 6 patients, write notes and orders (the final decisions on what medicines and tests to give), answer pages, and anything else that comes up during the day.
Speaking of which, my days will start at 6:55AM and will alternate an end time of 3PM-9PM(call)-3PM-6PM. Every time I think about how long these days are going to be I get a little overwhelmed with the thought of trying to fit in at least 2 good pumping sessions so my supply doesn't dwindle during the month... One day at a time I guess.  
I am so looking forward to this weekend. I have Monday off, and I plan to soak up every valuable minute. Hope you all have a great weekend too!
