…and getting blindsided by some questions I had not thought of.
…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.
In one of those unplanned coincidences, two police patrol units, two paramedic crews, and an emergency physician showed up within minutes of each other at the Starbucks I am sitting in.
It was an interesting sight to see, watching an impromptu gathering unfold where everyone could take a few minutes to sit down, relax, and talk about something else besides business, away from the ruckus of the emergency department before their shifts start.
I have quiet time on call and I cannot bring myself to sleep. I feel like a zombie.
