Aright guys, we’ve reached the end of the summer series about Module 1 of medical school—which just happened to extend into Fall due to my crazy start to second year this July! 😂 Pretty much everything else about Module 1 is very similar to the way it begins: lecture exams, lab exams, SP exams, quizzes, stress, fast pace, and lots of fun. So I’ll use this post to talk about end-of-semester things and how I spent my winter break before the beginning of the 2nd semester.
Hey guys! Back again for another summer series post about year one! Today we reach the dreaded discussion of exam time. The best way to do this is talk about the exams in the order in which I took them and then talk about what happens afterwards.
*standardized patient exams were not included in the first two exam cycles so I’ll wait to explain that later in the Summer Series
The first exam of the bunch was Continue reading
It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another summer series post! Also fret-not, the vlog post to answer y’alls questions is coming very soon! This week I’ll go into detail about my first month of school. I thought the best way to do that would be by week:
Week 1: Orientation/Foundations Week
That’s right, it took half a week for our class to get orientated. Continue reading
First off I wanted to say thanks so much for the feedback on my end of the year post! I will be making weekly vlogs that discuss the things you all wanna hear about, starting this Friday! So stay tuned 🙂 In the mean time I thought Wednesdays would be a great day to talk it up about Year One, step by step–starting with the summer before it started!
My medical school has an awesome opportunity for up to 15 (my year there were only 6) selected incoming first year students who get a med school ‘crash course’ of sorts. Continue reading
So I recently (and by recently I mean literally this morning) started my vegan journey! I’ve been wanting to try veganism since last Fall but with a hectic school schedule and minimal opportunities to research the lifestyle in my sparce ‘down-time’, I decided in January that I would start this summer. Today is day one and it’s definitely been eye-opening thus far. I never realized how hard it would be for a southern girl to give up the butter but I’m excited to take on the challenge. For dinner I wanted something filling so I decided to go for some sweet potato fries. The recipe was fairly simple and I added my own twist!
Ingredients: Continue reading
I know, I know it’s been FOREVER. Let’s just say medical school took up a lot more of my time than I expected. But I can thankfully say that as of today my first year of medical school is complete! My first year was one of the most challenging, exhilarating, crazy, fun, horrifying, and intense experiences of my life. I have worked harder, slept less, and stressed more than I ever have before–and I loved every minute of it. I initially tried to take on more than I could handle outside of school which is why I had to sacrifice posting on the blog. I regret not taking you all on my journey with me through first year, but hopefully my summer plans will make up for it. Continue reading
