Success At Last!

Today has been so productive that I feel like doing a little happy dance. I got loads of sign-ups in my log book because we finally found a doctor who is really keen to teach us. Although she's a very busy registrar this doctor took an hour and a half out of her morning this morning to observe histories and examinations and to explain drugs charts to us. She's also coming in early on Monday to assist us practicing taking blood on each other. Yay.

It's such a relief to have finally found someone who's taken us all under her wing. We have an amazing radiology teacher too, which is something a lot of other groups are lacking. Everything will finally fall into place if we can find someone to teach us one aspect of our rotation that has been totally neglected as the doctor timetabled to teach us was double booked. Unfortunately we've gone 5 weeks without this important teaching, fingers crossed it'll be sorted next week.

I'm also feeling pretty impressed that this is my 100th post. 100! That's a pretty big number. When I started blogging earlier in the year I wasn't convinced I'd stick with it. I have an awful habit of being really into something for a week or two and then forgetting all about it, but luckly that hasn't happened with the blog. I love writing it as much as I did when I started. Fingers crossed my attention span will let me write another 100 posts!

It seems as if everything is falling in to place for you, education wise. It's great that you have found someone willing to help you in this way, and coming in early too.

Congratulations on your 100th post. When I started mine at the end of June, I too wondered how long I would keep it going, but I have found it to be such a therapeutic process, even when I am at my lowest and in the depths of depression. Just keep on blogging and I will keep on reading your adventures during your training in medicine.

Thank goodness for finding someone keen to teach. I've signed myself up for 2 more sessions (knee and CXR) for the thrid years, and I'm pretty excited about it. Maybe I'm a little bit of a loser...

Woooo for 100 posts!

Congratulations! I love writing myself, and think the love may be increasing...
And teachers like that are worth their weight in monoclonal antibodies.....:-)
