Smile :) You deserve it ! Tag someone who is happy they chose to be in the medical field. Don't let people talk you out your dreams when you know who you are meant to be. Be the hope of others, speak for those who have no voice. 🙏🏻👌🏻👍🏻👍🏻🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
The stuffed animal hospital opened today after being understaffed and without adequate equipment for several months. The patients were triaged according to severity of lacerations. Luckily, soon to be Dr. Mommy, was on duty and available to take the cases. HIPPA laws do not apply to stuffed animals, in which case I'll talk about them here: Mr. Greenie was the most serious case with a neck laceration that extended all the way down his arm, in which some of his insides were falling out. We quickly stuffed him back in and put in some stitches. He should be fully recovered by next week. Secondly, Pikachu as his friends call him, lost his tail. I was able to attach it back on without too many complaints, as I made sure the anesthesiologist gave him a spinal block. Last patient is Ms. Hello Kitty, she has macrocephaly but seems to have used that to make herself a fortune. I digress. She presented with a neck laceration that made her dress fall out. As this is a cosmetic problem, I am unsure insurance will cover the procedure, but I'm sure the hospital's billing department will deal with that. It was a successful day in the ER. I'd like to thank my mom, 8th grade Home Economics teacher, and the entire Clinical Skills department at CUSOM who have mentored my sewing skills through the years. Couldn't have done this without you guys. #doctormominthehouse#futureDOctor#medstudent#momlife#momofthree
Lindsay: I’m a Michigan girl, born and raised. I went to University of Michigan for my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene Studies. I graduated in 2013. It was during my last year in undergrad I realized I wanted to continue my education and pursue my Masters to become a Physician Assistant. I took a gap year to complete prerequisites and to gain more patient hours required for my application.
Accepted: How did you know that PA school was what you wanted to do?
@thatpagirl: I knew PA school was what I wanted to do when I shadowed a few different PA’s. I saw the variety that the field offered, because every PA had a very different day to day and role in their patient’s healthcare. It was eye opening and I loved it!
Yesterday on my 21st birthday, I cut my hair off for @Pantene Beautiful Lengths ❤️💇🏻
As a future medical professional, I want my practice to incorporate the medical and non medical ways that I can support my patients, from connecting them to an organization to find a wig after hair loss to sitting by them as we watch slam poetry videos from my phone. I've talked about the clinical things I've done that brought me to this point, but so many of the lessons I've learned weren't directly in the medical field. I'm excited to share those stories with you! But first, cheers to ✌🏼☝🏼!
All day every day baby! We just got done delivering a beautiful baby with many more on the way tonight. Excited to have just 4 more nights of night shift and then back to seeing my family again during regularly scheduled hours lol (and just five days from officially starting my third year). Say whhaaaattt?! 🤷🏾♀️🤗
Peep my child's itty bitty fingers at the bottom corner of the pic. Every time I tried to take this pic he would snatch my scrubs away and laugh. He is is father's child lol
I am feeling very grateful for the program I am in at Medical Assisting School.
The class is so nice and so fun to practice labs on with one another.
I am definitely going to need to practice taking blood pressure vitals though!
It makes me think back to when I was first diagnosed with Type One Diabetes in 2012; how I didn't even know how to use needles or give myself insulin. Now I feel like a pro with needles and injections after these 5 years of constant practice. So it is encouraging to know that with more practice I will grow my other skills in the medical field.
To think before all this happened, my path was headed down a Psychology degree and not knowing really what I wanted for my life. I'm so thankful I was redirected into my destiny and calling.
I feel so grateful every day of how far I have come and how far I will go.
Studies show that having a furry friend is associated with weight maintenance, reduced blood pressure, higher self esteem, less depression, and improved cardiovascular fitness. Given that Step 2 stress has got me maxing on ice cream and feeling like my heart's gonna leap outta my chest, I'm counting on the occasional evening beach time with Lena to help me hold it together 😬 // #mansbestfriend#doctornickisays#medschool#medstudent#vsco#vscocam
Dreaming of yesterday's yummy dinner💭 Wish I could be at home eating a nice warm meal on a plate instead of out of a Tupperware at the hospital😔 Can't complain too much though because this is my last 26 hour call shift for clerkship!🙆 My next rotation has a baby call shift in anesthesia but that's it until September😄 Can't believe how fast this year has gone!
Spent the day doing inguinal hernia repairs, which was actually a lot of fun because I got to do lots!😊 Got to make the first incisions and continue on to open the inguinal canal, help with dissection and suture it all closed🗡 Surgery is so much more fun when I actually do more then just retract🙈 Happy last week of June!🌷 #dinner#smokedsalmon#broccoli#spinach#salad

Social media can be used as a positive if you let, be kind and know that their is enough abundance for each and everyone of us!#womeninmedicine#womensupportwomen#minorities#staypositive#medstudent#mondaymotivation
This month has been extremely taxing on me. I cannot wait for it to be over. I feel like my brain has become so fried that it refuses to retain any more information. Being in an accelerated program definitely has it perks. I chose it because I wanted to graduate earlier and work ASAP, since I really enjoy having that patient interaction.
However, I've been feeling quite discouraged. But I know that I must believe in myself and keep pushing forward. You really do need to take things one day at a time. I always have to remind myself of the bigger picture and how it's a learning process. I actually pray when I'm feeling overwhelmed and it calms me down.
Don't give up, even when you want to so badly. What got you into PA school, will get you out. Even if you're not in PA school yet, don't give up hope because I know plenty of people who didn't get in on their first try. Trust in yourself. Remember that you're not alone in this journey. #motivationalmonday
Thank you @besmartus family for kicking our ass! If you haven't tried this, you better go check it out. 20 mins of this workout is equivalent to 90 mins in the gym.. if you don't believe it, wait until the next day of your workout - I'm still sore from my first one.
#mirrormonday from a fancy department store bathroom last Monday (I forgot to take a mirror pic today and now I'm already in PJs for a night of @sketchymedical in bed) -- I purchased nothing but one can dream 🛍
My friend (who is Fijian Indian) is trying to find out - WHY is Indian considered a language on this intake form? When there are over 22 official languages spoken in India and 1652 non-official languages. #justasking#america#stereotypes 🙄🙄🙄🙄
Caso clínico de paciente masculino de 46 años de edad que acude a urgencias por presentar un absceso en la cápsula sinovial de la articulación glenohumeral, debido a artritis séptica
La Artritis infecciosa de las articulaciones puede ser causada por una serie de microorganismos. La Artritis bacteriana, también conocido como supurativa, piógena, o artritis séptica, es la mas comun y posiblemente más importante y es considerada una emergencia reumatológica debido a su rapida destrucción y pérdida irreversible de la función. La Artritis viral a menudo involucra múltiples articulaciones como un componente de una infección sistémica y generalmente no conduce a la morbilidad a largo plazo. En contraste con la presentación aguda de artritis bacteriana y vírica, infección conjunta por micobacterias y hongos no Candida generalmente surge como la artritis monoarticular crónica, lentamente progresiva. Además de la artritis causada por una infección conjunta directa por estos microbios, hay una artritis reactiva o estéril que es ocasionalmente asociada con una infección sistémica o local en un sitio remoto de la articulación.
