Hmm...so I signed to post to my other blog and this one rose to the top of the list...alerting me that it had been written in. Consequently, I find myself saying, "What the heck, why not post an update!"
It's been a little over a year again and ironically I'm almost in the same sort of place...studying for another part of the boards. However instead of memorizing specific genes and enzymes involved in obsure diseases I'm trying to sort out what test to order next, or what disease a patient has given a specific exam finding. This stuff is way cooler.
What's hardest for me to believe at present is that I'm just about finished with another chapter of my life. I'm already into my third month of my last year of medical school and being a doctor is less than a year away. Amazing! I'm also about to make about the next biggest decisions of my life...where to residency. Fortunately I've decided what type of Doc I want to be...just your run of the mill country family medicine doctor. Unfortunately that leaves about 400 programs across the country to choose from. I know I want to find a place that's got training in rural medicine and sports medicine, but what I don't know is exactly where that will be. There are great programs all over this country, and from what my folks tell me, out west is beautiful. However, after spending the last 3+ years in Florida, a mere 1500 miles from my family, I've realized that I've missed way too much change in them. I mean, my brother went from a skinny little twurp (sp?) to this pseudo-man who's already a sophomore in college. The kid could beat me up now if I wanted to. Then there's the guy thing...I don't want to drag the boy who moved to Florida for me all the way across the country. He deserves to be near his family too. In honesty, I feel like my soul is calling me back to NY. Perhaps I should listen.
