I have been at MUSC for 10 years. I started Medical School in 2003 and that is 4 years, then 3 years for Internal Medicine Residency, and THEN i decided that i loved the ICU and Pulmonary issues, so i decided to do a fellowship....and i am in my 3rd year of Pulmonary Fellowship. I have been here forever!
It isn't a bad thing because I love MUSC and the programs i am in. And i have met some really wonderful people and have learned a lot. But i have been here for a loooong time......and it is not just me that thinks that.
Since i am back roaming the halls of the hospital, i am running into people i have worked with over the years. I hope they remember me bc i am nice or funny....and not because i was the intern that slept through my pages while on call (yep- i totally did that).
This is what i have heard just over the past week.
"Aren't you an attending yet?"
"When will you graduate?"
"You are still here? I thought you would be done by now."
Well, in 10 months i will graduate. To do what?....... I don't know. But possibilities are endless and i think my future is very exciting!
Well, i am off to bed. I will say good morning tp everyone (but goodnight for me since i was on call last night).
Have a wonderful weekend!
