The End Is Near…

That’s right. the end of my externship is well within reach. In fact it’s this coming Monday! Well, of course that depends on the weather. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and be icy throughout the weekend. If that’s the case, then I might not be able to make it to work on Monday and will have to go Tuesday. That’s ok. I enjoy it there.

One of the things that makes it enjoyable there is the compliments I get from the doctors, the patients, and even my colleagues. They are nice to me and they do give me advice that helps me do well in my job. Though they never asked me to join them for lunch 🙁 That’s ok, I do like to use that time to talk to Jason. It’s one of the things I look forward to during the day…talk to my husband about how my day is going. I just feel I’m in the right field. Read more


Well here I am again…

Yesterday I came home after my supervisor gave me a very questionable but good report on my weekly evaluation. I decided to call my career adviser from school about it. Turned out, my supervisor had just called and told her that she could not supervise me because she does not have the time to watch me. Also, on a funny coincidental note, a family practice office called looking for an intern to fill immediately. At the time I called, they had closed, but they are in a place I like to work and a practice I’m interested in working with. So, as luck may have it, I may have another place to work without worrying about taking time off. Read more


Change in Work Location

Well, the time has come. This is my last week at the OB/GYN office. I shall be departing from where I currently work and transferring to a different office and field of medicine. I wanted to stay in the OB/GYN field but the next best place to work was an Internal Medicine place near by. Not that I have a problem with that. At first, I was worried, because people go to their primary care physicians because they feel sick. I have MS which makes me worried, but on the other hand, a lot of patients go to the doctor and aren’t contagious. They have a UTI, or a headache, or they cut themselves. It’s not necessarily because they have some contagious disease that is going to make me sick. Any office or place that I work in has people in it that can get me sick. Places I would have to worry about it more are hospitals and infectious disease medicine. It isn’t very common to come across someone with something that bad in any doctor’s office. Most people would go to the hospital if they felt that badly. I also won’t be in constant contact with anyone for too long…to the point I will most definitely catch what they have. Read more
