A week ago I started a new chapter in my medical life; 3rd year rotations. It has been a huge adjustment, but a very fulfilling one at the same time. No more speding days on end with my nose buried in a book. From now on the majority of my learning will be hands on.
When I have the time I'm going to be writing about the experiences that I have while on rotations so that I can someday look back and remember what it felt like to be just starting out.
For my first two months I am rotating through surgery (which I first saw as a curse but am now really enjoying) at one of the busiest surgical centers in the country (in terms of # of surgeries at this hospitals three sites).
