Yesterday I completed my last day as a medical student at a rotation site. That was the last time I will ever have to introduce myself as a medical student to a patient! My last day in a short white coat!
It was a great day. I was shadowing an ob/gyn at a community health center. I really, really love women’s health in an outpatient setting. We had obstetrical visits, gyn consults for cervical dysplasia, an endometrial biopsy, an infertility consult, a follow up for results of imaging for pelvic pain…there is such a great variety.
I am going to really miss it during my next year doing a traditional rotating internship in a hospital. I am sure I will learn a lot, which should make me feel more comfortable with handling the multitude of general medical issues that can crop up in women’s health and eventually make me a better, more well rounded physician.
Anyway, WOOHOOOOOO! I’m done!
