I realize that it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything of worth here. It’s been a hectic time for me. Medical school graduation has come and gone, and while I’m thrilled to be done with that chapter of my life, the commencement ceremony was fairly anticlimactic. My traditional intern year begins soon, and I’ve got orientation activities for the next couple of weeks. Maybe once that’s over and I start seeing patients again, it won’t feel as weird introducing myself as Dr. Fishman.
My time writing for Medscape’s Match Game blog has also come to a close as well. It was an amazing privilege to work for such a great site and with such awesome fellow medical students. Hopefully, this won’t be the end of my writing there. Keep an eye out for more. In the meantime, I’m working on a full archive post of everything I’ve written for Match Game. I’ll try to get that up as soon as I can.
I’m hoping to keep DoctorFishypants better populated in the coming months. Since most of my day-to-day life in medicine is covered elsewhere online, I’m going to try to use this site for more essays or long-form writing about anything from medicine to my increasingly expensive love affair with video games. I’ll try to keep it interesting, even for those of you who don’t know anything about medicine or don’t obsess over the next Super Mario Bros. game.
