Tomorrow is my last day at the corporate job, and I am going to enjoy my time until I start school in Spring-2011 for pre-med. Thanks to OPM folks who helped me discover my “guts”. I don’t miss it already.
Here are few things I am doing for the next 2 months:
- Volunteering at 2 different hospitals in the following departments: a) Day Surgery b) GI/Endoscopy c) OB/Gyn Clinic d) Neuro e) Cadio Rehab f) ER - Few of these positions I am still interviewing for, so praying it will all work out.
- Reviewing math, chemistry and physics.
Besides the above, I would like to pick up few good reads on medicine, something interesting on the doctor-patient relationship/interation, or a book that describes “situations”/short-storie s in a hospital/clinic setting: embarassing, fun, touching moments.
Any other recommendations for activities, or reading to make my med school applicant profile stronger.
Just something to share: Today they had 44 surgeries at the Day Surgery deptt, of which 24 were General Anesthesia … I love watching the anesthesiologist putting people to restful sleep. The staff loves the way I describe their activities (over-simplified and romantic: but we all get to laugh).
Also, there was a surgery for achilles tendon repair … gosh, I so BADLY wanted to see it: I am a runner, yikes I can relate to that pain. Ouchy! I wish! I wish!
OK - I am digressing now … looking for suggestions.
