I’m waiting on line to get an I.D. card for my new rotation site. It’s a family planning rotation at a program that has an obstetrics and gynecology residency to which I applied.
I’m really excited and nervous. So, to distract myself, here are some observations:
1. One of the streets bordering the hospital is named “Papanicolauo Way.” Yes, I will be taking a picture at some point.
2. They sell “The Club”, the old school car security device here in the security office. Geez, maybe I should have put my purse in my trunk.
3. When we were cruising through the school corridors among research labs with cool looking beakers, goggled research assistants, and radioactive materials and biohazard warning signs, there was a water fountain with an old, worn sign stating “This water is SAFE for drinking and cooking.” If there was no sign, I wouldn’t have been suspicious. Now, I’m not so sure.
I’ll be back with more clinically relevant observations.
