…and getting blindsided by some questions I had not thought of.
A second batch of questions from my inbox. My apologies to those who waited and are still waiting.
…is my last clinical day of medical school.
…is my last day seeing patients before residency.
…is my last day introducing myself to patients as a medical student.
Though I still have a month plus change of classes before school is officially over, I am both excited and terrified of what is to come.
I have quiet time on call and I cannot bring myself to sleep. I feel like a zombie.
Sitting in the deafening silence of the call lounge with nothing but my thoughts to occupy me, I wait. My phone has yet to buzz with the tease of a new consult. My mind races about tomorrow’s match results.
Did I make the right choices? Will I match? What will happen if I do not?
Tonight will be the longest call shift of my life.
