On this particular Monday morning, I find myself smiling with glee as I’m riding the bus to the hospital for my acute-care rotation. Most people will tell you that they don’t enjoy spending time at a hospital because going to one usually means that someone you love is sick or injured. I admit that for this reason, I have dreaded stepping foot into a hospital; however, going as a care provider definitely brings a new and different perspective. I also admit that I was equally excited and apprehensive about this rotation of my orthotic residency. One of the reasons I was drawn to the University of Michigan (UM) residency program is that, as a resident, I have the opportunity to spend time at the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) University Hospital for my rotation in O&P acute care.
