Feeling Less Overwhelmed, But ...
Now that my final research presentation and family medicine exam are officially out of the way, I am again feeling the familiar relief of being done with another clinical rotation. It’s wild to think that since last August, I’ve already completed six rotations.
With only a combined psychiatric/long-term care rotation to go before my final elective rotation in the ER, I am ready to start preparing a CV and thinking about potential jobs. As hard as it is to believe that I’m already at that point in my schooling, after several lectures today on applying for our boards examination, CME credits, licensure and certification, I’m feeling less overwhelmed than I had been before, and more hopeful for what lies ahead in the next several months of my journey.
This weekend, as I plan to head to Maryland to settle in for a short 4-week psychiatric rotation, I am feeling ready to start preparing for graduation and everything that needs to be done to ensure that I’ll be ready to start working this fall.
