Now that I’m a few months into my intern year, things are starting to settle into a rhythm. I’ve been in the emergency room, on a rural medicine rotation about an hour from home, and now on OB/Gyn. From here, I move on to orthopedics, internal medicine, and anesthesia. I’ve gotten into a semi-regular exercise routine, and I’m hoping to stick to it for the foreseeable future. I’ve been able to visit Emily three times since starting my internship. Some weeks go by quicker than others, but it’s still rough. I’m working on getting in touch with residency directors out in St. Louis to increase my chances of matching there next year.
In other news, I’ve begun writing for Medscape again! With Match Game wrapped up, I was asked to keep my own blog on the site. I’m an Intern Now operates similarly to Match Game, but I’ll have weekly posts (rather than biweekly) about anything and everything related to a traditional internship year at my local community hospital. I’m hoping to keep it fun, helpful, and lighthearted. The first post went up a few days ago, and I’ve got a few more waiting in the wings for the coming weeks. Please keep an eye on it and send any feedback you have my way.
