"After surgery conference last week and procedures today, I'm finally feeling a little like a doctor!" β€οΈπŸ‘©πŸΌβ€βš•οΈ @tiffanyjoy8 #allheartSquad #Sutures #WomenInMedicine #RealCaregiversRealStories #PracticeMakesPerfect #MsPiggyπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ₯βœ¨πŸ–

This right here is what my Friday night consists of && I'm not even mad about it. Pretty sure I've adapted really well to this lifestyle. Plus, l'd rather stay in + Netflix + 🍷 anyway πŸ’πŸ» #SoFancy #IKnow lol! When did I become an adult?! Haha jk, but for real. Tunnel vision right now. Hustling for my MD dreams! The hustle includes Fridays! &&...Saturdays + Sundays. I know it's going to be worth it soon πŸ™πŸΌ The hustle don't stop πŸ™…πŸ»

Residency is exhausting there is no denying that. It takes your soul, your heart, your life away from you. You work 80+ hours a week for less an hour than what people make at fast food restaurants. You lose faith in yourself at times, you question every decision and every thought. You wonder if this was the right choice. Your social life doesn't exist and if you can see your loved ones your usually too exhausted to move. But after it at all you grow, you change, and you become the doctor you always dreamed of. Nothing in life worth having is easy and it has taken me 28 years to get here but I wouldn't trade it. These two pictures are two years apart. On the left I was a new intern, nieve, heathy and on the right now I'm a 3rd year and the senior resident and running codes, staring death in the eye, and trying to just stay afloat. A lot has changed but the drive and the motivation to be better is there. This post is sappy but is honestly me and what residency is honestly about πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #familymedicine #womeninmedicine #residentlife #residency #doctor #education #whitecoat

Chemical peels are one of the most commonly performed procedures in a #derm office for skin resurfacing. It is basically a controlled chemical burn of various layers of the skin. Peels can be classified into superficial (epidermal injury), medium (papillary-reticular dermal injury), and deep (mid-reticular dermal injury). The depth of peel is determined by the desired outcome. Various chemicals can be used: salicylic acid, glycolic acid, TCA, abd phenol, just to name a few.
.
Superficial peels are great for treating acne and dyspigmentation.
.
Medium and deep depth peels are more effective for improving superficial scars and increasing collagen production, put they also have more recovery time, and higher risk of infection, scarring, and are not recommended for patients with skin of color.
.
Chem peels are also great for treating medical conditions such as actinic keratosis and wart.
.
See your dermatologists for the right peel to treat your skin concern!

Feeling so incredibly grateful and lucky to have my little bear here by my side, supporting me and cheering me on as I take on medical school one day at a time. I'm fascinated by the amount of understanding she has for what I'm doing- she recognizes the amount of effort it takes out of me to be successful in medical school. A lot of people have suggested to me that I should leave her back at home with family. But quite frankly, the thought of that tears me apart. She is the reason I've made it to where I am today. She saved my life. She is my person. And though motherhood in medicine presents inevitable challenges at times, I wouldn't have it any other way. These difficult times shape me into the woman I am today, and the physician I'm preparing to become. Medical school is a wild, insane, beautiful experience. Week two has been completed. And I'm pretty sure I've learn more throughout these past two weeks than I have in my entire life. But isn't that one of the reasons we chose to pursue medicine? We're all nerdy, right? Because if you ask me, I'm having the time of my life. And I'm 100% certain that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻

I am finally on vacation for the first time in forever and am getting ready to settle into five long days of studying in prep for my Internal Medicine boards on Thursday. Since Iyla was born, I had 5 weeks of maternity leave, and 1 week off for Christmas, so I wish this "vacation" could have been spent actually relaxing because, truthfully, I could use a break. But, I'm also so grateful for these 5 days of focused and devoted study time to try to solidify as much medicine as I can in my little head. Here goes nothing... #prayforme #ineedalltheluckicanget

That was quite some night - and I'm exhausted!! But that's okay. These shifts happen as well and sometimes it's not all fun, rainbow and butterflies. Sometimes the work in the hospital can be pure and real. But I wouldn't wanna have it any other way and I wouldn't wanna change what I get to learn for the world.
Hope you'll all be having a beautiful weekend.

Grinning #eartoear because it's the weekend! πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ™‚Thank you @wearfigs!

Good morning everyone.
We annually clear out our rooms, attick, etc. And now it is that time of the year because we both have a few free days. To be honest I prefer a ready-to-go-back-to-work home that sun bathing on a beach in Spain and stressing about my to do list. Who else is so πŸŒ€!πŸŒ€?? πŸ™‹πŸ»

Saturday surgery struggles.

Gooood morning πŸ™‚πŸŒ…πŸŒΏ Starting the day with a big bowl of juicy peaches and some coffee πŸ‘Œ I've finished the week in vascular surgery and now I'm going back to the general surgery department for 2 weeks. I've seen lots of venous/arterial insufficiency ulcers, lots of gangrenous and amputated toes/limbs and a few aortic aneurysm repairs and a carotid entarterectomy. Definitely feel like I've developed my clinical skills a little - I've finally mastered how to palpate the femoral artery πŸ˜… Overall, I've thoroughly enjoyed vascular surgery! Hope you all have a productive day! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜€

Publications so far this year πŸ€“

This week I had my first continuity clinic schedule with patients under my name. Seeing the list the night before was terrifying and so exciting at the same time! Clinic was a doozy with new and old gyn and OB patients, and there was so much to learn from patients, upper levels, and attendings. Although the work is hard, I feel really blessed to be able to play a part in my patients' lives! πŸ₯ .

Flashback to when we interns became official official (but not feeling so official!) πŸ˜‚ #mobgynchronicles

Another throw back to my time in Spain, just for fun. 😊 Today was my last day of med school orientation. White coat is this weekend and classes start Monday! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Made it to my first vacation week! Time for a little stay-cation. 😎 We get four vacation weeks each year in residency and although I'll prob need the rest later on, I'll take any opportunity to sleep in I can get.

This month I've been in our department and it's been so much fun! Taking care of patients in the ED is the perfect mix of everything I love about medicine. Every patient is a new challenge and puzzle to figure out. The day is constantly moving at hyper speed and my mind never has a chance to get bored. Not to mention I work with some of the best people in the hospital. As I get more comfortable with each passing shift I've found myself more and more excited to go to work each day (or night). Never knowing what will come through the doors. Even the shift start times are varied. I've touched on so many topics in medicine in just three short weeks. I'm a little sad I have two off service rotations coming up next, but that just tells me I definitely made the right choice in choosing my specialty ❀️. _

Found this little nook on my way to Campbell hall today. There's so many hidden secrets on campus this inspired me to shoot this weekend I'm enrolling new friends to entertain my photo concept ideas πŸ’‘

Follow @nursesandthecity! When nurses link up, you never know what's going to happen! It's a movement

24 hour shifts equal double the pagers and double the fun. πŸ™„ I love when my sweet nugget comes to visit he gave mommy lots of kisses tonight. πŸ‘ΆπŸΎ

When your flight is 6 hours delayed and you run out of things to do you gotta keep yourself entertained by practicing tying surgical knots! Oh and don't forget #bubblegum #medicalschool #medicine #medicalstudent #medstudent #womeninsurgery #womeninmedicine #airports #flights #surgicalknots
