The last 8 weeks

This week marks the beginning of the last 8 weeks of medical school. I am happy to report that I am back home with my lovely family for the next 4 weeks. It's bitter sweet because I have to leave and and finish in Michigan. I've been assigned to a wonderful pediatric doctor who practices a  bit of old fashioned medicine. The paper charts, old tools and three generations of patients are really refreshing to see. I don't always agree with the things he says for example, that all young children need to drink the sugary juice drinks, but he is very wise in so many ways that I am excited to learn all I can from him. He is very hands one and starting next week I will have my own patients every day. This will be great practice for residency. He loves to teach and is even giving me advice on running my own practice and the business aspect of it. It's going to be a good rotation. Well back to it.... Happy Wednesday everyone.
I see this picture frequently in different doctors offices but he has it in every room. I fall in love with it more every day.

Your blog has truly been an inspiration to me. I begin medical school at Ross SOM in 5 months! I am excited but very nervous as well. Thank you for opening up with complete strangers and sharing your journey with us. God Bless
