The medical intensive care unit is a very difficult place for interns to work. I'm glad my month is finished.
I'm back to being a regular New Haven Resident, which includes time for writing, for studying and for kitchen renovation in the midst of learning how to intubate patients and how to look at just about everything you can imagine using ultrasound.
Here are some other things I've been working on recently:
A little article about couple's matching for residency over at Medscape. The couple's match is how medical school graduates can be guaranteed placement in a city where their partner (who must also be a soon-to-be intern) will also match.
I'm also helping kick-start some conversations over at a discussion board within Medscape, called Med Student Connect. Check out my morning report posts if you want to work through some clinical brain-teasers. #1, #2, and #3. I'm trying to kick up some controversy in the ethics section, but haven't any takers yet.
You'll need a free log-in for Medscape to read each of these. Sorry.
So not very much news from me other than these. For now...
