Medical School

Shoe game strong

Saturday, August 25, 2018

  Who doesn’t want comfortable shoes for work, that also look rad? The answer is NO ONE, my friends. I have to say though, in medicine, the cool factor becomes much less of a priority. Most of the time, I’m just so tired and focused on my work that what my shoes look like, doesn’t matter a bit. There came a point however, when I realized even though I wear scrubs to work, my appearance still matters a lot. Just like any other line of work, people want to see their doctor or nurse look presentable. That includes having shoes that…

Life with a Frenchie

Monday, July 9, 2018

It’s no surprise to any of you that owning a dog is work! Especially when you have a busy work schedule. Many of you ask questions about how we found and manage our little french bulldog, so I’m finally writing this blog post! And yes… her name is Ems (m’s) but short for EMS (Emergency Medical Services), we HAD to find a way to be creative! Chris and I had been talking about getting a french bulldog for a while, before we took the plunge. We were lucky, and found a breeder that we were happy with, pretty quickly. One…

MedStudebt

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  There’s a little term I like to use when I talk about medical school. It’s Medstudebt. For some reason my phone used to autocorrect to this, when I tried to type med student.

How do you deal with the debt from medical school?? I’ll be totally honest with you about my debt. I graduated medical school with $240K in student loans. This was somewhat average at the…

The big day, your interview (part 2: interview etiquette/questions)

Saturday, November 4, 2017

  Of course, deciding what to wear to your medical school or residency interview is difficult enough. But now… you have to nail the interview! A bangin’ suit won’t get you anywhere if you can’t navigate through all of those questions and awkward social encounters.   Step 1: Be Confident    The first step is presenting yourself with confidence. Smile. Be friendly. Sit up straight. Don’t fuss with your hair or outfit. Small talk is fine, but don’t be too intrusive with other applicants (i.e. what were your test scores, where else have you gotten in, etc- how annoying). Avoid…

The big day, your interview (part 1: interview attire)

Monday, October 16, 2017

  If you’re wondering what to wear to your professional interview, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Showing up in your finest is a must! But what defines YOUR finest? This is largely subjective, my friends. The most important thing about dressing for this interview day, is that YOU feel good, and you feel like YOURSELF. Within reason of course. 🙂 Let me start by saying that I am not on an admissions committee currently, but I have been part of student admissions committees in the past, and I have participated as a resident interviewer. I have seen my fair share…
