- “Fifteen hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the earth was flat, and 15 minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”
My residency experience has flown by. It is difficult to sit down and reflect on the experiences of the past year while still caught up in the whirlwind of the present. Workflow is a fickle thing in this field; it is hardto strike a perfect balance between not busy and swamped. While things have calmed down this month, the whole month previous was my biggest learning experience to date. Managing multiple patients every day allowed me to pull together all the skills I have acquired and implement my own clinical decisions with little assistance. It feels good to see all the pieces of knowledge I have gained over the past year come together.
