The First Week

I started my postbac program on August 23rd! So far I’ve had a relatively smooth journey. Class has been surprisingly manageable. After screwing up undergrad I’m taking steps to make sure I don’t make mistakes this time. I’ve said it many times before, but this postbac is my last hope at medical school. Doing a […]

Postbac Orientation

Even the milk in the fridge points to the expiration date on my lackadaisical freedom; my first day of the postbac is August 22. I’ve been wrestling the past few weeks with lack of confidence. This postbac has seemed daunting and even reading my physiology book has been an insurmountable task that I have left […]

Shadowing in the NICU: Day 4

My last day of shadowing a neonatologist was a little sad! I had become a little attached to our patients; some of them had been discharged during the short time I had been there and new patients had arrived. I think many people who have a passion for medicine can agree that often unfortunately the […]

Shadowing in the NICU: Day 3

Today felt like a very short day because it was. I woke up late and ran around the house frantically with the usual problems: couldn’t find my keys, couldn’t find a hair elastic, put mascara on but somehow it kept smudging off all over my face. Ten doses of makeup remover later, I rushed out […]

Shadowing in the NICU: Day 2

Shadowing in the NICU: Day 2

Today was an emotionally charged day in the NICU. Yesterday I briefly discussed how neonatal medicine (like pediatric medicine) is interesting because the physiology of the patients change rapidly. I did not touch on how quickly the stability of the patients can change as well. Today I wondered if the death of a patient in […]

Shadowing in the NICU: Day 1

Many months ago I had applied to shadow a neonatologist in the NICU at VCU and finally got to shadow today. They offer two tracks for shadowing: 1) one day of shadowing 2) four days of shadowing rounds in the NICU followed by a 10-15 min presentation I opted for the second track, of course, […]

Pregnant & Premed: The Second Trimester

The pregnancy is passing very quickly which means school is going to start and the baby will be here soon! Physically: Although I’ve only gained 2-3 pounds, I haven’t been able to fit into my pants since the beginning of the second trimester. I did go out and buy a pant size larger which was […]

How to find a doctor to shadow

How to find a doctor to shadow

      Because I had worked as a medical scribe for about 1100 hours by the time I applied to medical school, I decided that I probably did not need to shadow a physician outside of my work in the Emergency Room. However, sinceĀ I was rejected from medical school, I decided to call the […]
