OH HAPPY DAY🙌🏼
- Today was an amazing day guys! I went to my second shadowing day with the PA in hematology/oncology and I honestly feel like every time I go, I get to do more things, learn new things, and I get a little closer with this PA and she is awesome!! -The day started out with me being able to go through the patients list for the day and fill out my own notes on them (this is something an attending physician has NEVER let me do) because I used to be a scribe, I knew the ins and outs of the computer system and I was able to fill it out effortlessly which is awesome! After that, we rounded on the patients that she was in charge of before rounds. One of the patients was so excited to ask if he could have a disposable stethoscope for this grand daughter, of course the PA and I were able to find an extra one in the stock room which was so nice! Seeing his face after how excited he was to receive it was priceless❤Before rounds, we talked to the pharmacists about some medication concerns and then we were on our way to rounds! We stopped along the way to get snacks which is always nice! Rounds went smoothly and we were able to discharge 4 people (later on in the afternoon)!
-I am just feeling so incredibly happy and lucky right now to have found such an amazing mentor in a profession that I can't wait to be in soon! I can't stress enough how important it is to have a mentor in medicine, I know it's hard to find, believe me it took me years and many many shadowing hours, but I feel like I finally found the one and I couldn't be happier!! -S
