Our rotation schedules came out today and unless you’re a fellow MSII, you probably don’t care. In fact, you may be thinking, “Listen Red, it won’t matter in the end. I am a doctor and I am telling you that it does not matter.” If this is what you’re thinking, it’s fine, because 1. I don’t believe you and 2. This has been one of the only opportunities in medical school to have a say in what happens with my education, so STOP TRYING TO STEAL MY JOY!
Here is my 3rd year rotation schedule:
With the exception of Psychiatry and Ob/Gyn (which I wish were switched), that is the exact order that I requested. Woo!
I know that I have a very light fall semester, but you guys, I have been so tired. Like, scary tired. And yes, I know that this is typical for MSII and everyone is stressed, blah blah blah. Does everyone else also have to spend six hour stretches in bed because they cannot walk from the fatigue?
I did not think so. (And yes, my Epstein Barr titer was negative. Other suggestions?)
Anyway, I put Primary Care first because I am unsure of how I’ll be feeling after the Boards. If I’m totally fine, then woo! Summer vacation LIVES! If I’m not, that will hopefully give me a little bit of a break/wiggle room. See how I like to plan ahead like that? (Also see how I am obviously insecure about this and feeling a need to defend my decisions on the internet… *sigh*)
I finally feel like medical school is moving forward!
