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…

My zombie life on night shift

Monday, June 4, 2018

  It’s no surprise to you all, that I work a lot of night shifts.

As an Emergency Medicine physician, my schedule changes on the reg. Although schedule will always vary by the group or hospital that you work for, most Emergency Med docs will work night shifts. It is less likely to find a group where you work the same shift and have a regimented schedule. I actually prefer…

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. But really it is kind of a funny (and very fitting) term. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room; one of THE MOST COMMON questions I receive on a daily basis. 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…

How I feel about being a doctor… the unedited version

Saturday, March 3, 2018

  There are days when I let the superficial angst and anxiety of my job, consume my thoughts. Many days.  I sit in front of my computer charting, thinking about how much I hate it. “I hate my job”, sometimes creeps into my mind. You guys don’t often hear me talk about the negatives, I know. That’s because I try not to dwell in the negatives. If I did, it would really bring me down. Every job comes with positives and negatives, but medicine in particular, has it’s fair share of negatives. The long days, high level of stress, difficult…
