Well, I am doing Internal medicine residency, and I am doing ward months, which is the toughest months of the year. Good thing is we don't have overnights as we have a night float system. It is very heavy load though.

But I have to say, I am enjoying it a lot, and the fact that I am single and do not have much else to worry about helps a lot.

Agree...family puts more on your shoulders...

Medicine is nice but busy. I just want to say that I was at the hospital at 4am to prepare for rounds. I am on call tomorrow...

To make your lfe easier in residency, learn how to write, learn how to write SOAP notes...

It was fun!smiling face Have a good one everyone!

  #134

Hello dear Sigh!

Happy new Year to you! How are you?


  #135

Surgery...Start thinking about Step 3 finally...


  #136

hi guys!

i have a big question. pls help/advise....
my pass scores are 92 and 97 but CS i passed it from the 3rd attempt only!mad
question: does step 3 bring any advantages in my sept. applications if i ll take it this summer or would be enough if i ll take it in nov (i am an img and hopefully i ll get some interviews in nov).

thanks a lot!


  #137

Dear Moncheri the process to apply to residency requires a lot of time and organization then the interview season is also painful. If you are an IMG and passed the CS in the third attempt, it would be a good idea to take the Step 3 before September. You need it to show the Program Director that you are able to work independently and to make wise decisions. Don't delay take it!



  #138

Take step 3 ASAP...but make sure to get a decent score!
I did not have time to post in my journal because of heavy rotations...now I have just 2 easiest left...I did not study for my step3 properly and will start now.
what else? I have no idea what's going on around...raised eyebrow


  #139

hi sigh, i am back!hope to see you around!


  #140

I am PGY-2 now! It's much better people. i need to study for my Step3...omg
