Tag Archives: what I want to be when I grow up

what’s next?

There is nothing like the day that you interview for medical school. Then there is nothing like the day that you get into medical school. You survive first year and continue to second year. What is the next big thing that happens? Well it apparently happened today in my class. 3rd and 4th year ROTATIONS schedule. This can be exciting, frustrating, and a little intimidating at the same time. Login to your E-value account, click this tab, fill in this button, and hope that your schedule appears.  Since I am a Rural Medical Track student I had a little better idea of what my rotations schedule was going to look like than most of my classmates, but it was still made my heart flutter as I read my schedule on one little piece of paper that is my life in 4 week blocks, 2 mini-internships, 2 vacations, and step 2 board review all in 20 lines.

Tulsa, Enid, Clinton, OKC, Talihina, and wherever the wind may take me for my selectives and electives.

17 days until Spring Break

70 days until 2nd year is over

104 days until COMLEX 1

123 days until rotations.

We can do this. I can do this. “NO MORE classroom!” that’s the thought that will get me through.

thank you Mike, for supporting me through all of this.

This is what is exciting (for the moment) in a 2nd year medical students life. I am sure it won’t be very long until I am wondering what the next exciting moment of life will be. Guess we can plan a vacation now.
