So, I'm officially a second year fellow now. As of July 1. Nothing much changes, really. I have more clinic months this year, less in-patient consult months. But, overall, it's more of the same. I know a whole lot more than I did a year ago, which is nice. At least I can give advice without asking the attending every freaking time. Well, usually. There's still a very long way to go.
The new fellows start up on Tuesday - they work with us on the consult service for half a day and then all day Wednesday. We show them how things run, answer questions, etc. Then they are on their own on Thursday! Oh, and if you didn't know already, never get sick in July. Ever.
On a personal note, I'm going home next weekend, which I'm super excited about. I'll get to see all of my siblings (which is a rare event, since we live in the far corners of the country -- literally). I'll also get to see my "new" nephew Noah. He's almost 6 months old, but I'll meet him for the first time in a week. It's going to be a blast!
