Why I Chose Ob/Gyn – Obstetrics Portion

Photo Cred: gnelyseo on Flickr Creative Commons

  Day 1 of Medical School: I’m showered, made-up, and well-slept. As a newly wed in a new city embarking on an exciting journey, I possess a palpable eagerness akin to the first day of Kindergarten. Although I am somewhat intimidated and terrified, my mind is focused and eager to get going with this adventure to becoming a doctor. I confidently write my specialties of choice on the welcome questionnaire. Pediatrics or Emergency Medicine   Fast […]

Imposter Syndrome

Imposter - Kid. Lady Bug. Doctor. Cartoon Character. Nobody knows.

I wrote this my first year out of medical school and at the time shared it on a site I was writing for. I’m re-sharing all these years later, because it’s still very applicable (both to me and others) – particularly since many of you are at the beginning of your med school or residency journey. IMPOSTER SYNDROME Occasionally I find myself in the OR standing over a patient (on a step stool, thanks to my […]

Ob/Gyn Residency – An Update (At the End)

Well hey there, can’t believe anyone is still making it over this way. Residency is kind of time-consuming, who’da thunk it? I started this post 1.5 years ago and never finished. Awesome. Considering we’re coming up on the half-way point end of my residency experience, I figured now would be a good time for an update. Last I checked in was a year ago basically forever ago and I was learning to do LEEPs on summer […]

Residency Work Hour Restrictions

Tired Doctor

The Grass Is Always Greener? Growing Up in the Era of Work-Hour Restrictions In 2008, the IOM study on resident work hours came out and in the years that followed the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) subsequently implemented a gamut of “recommendations.” As a medical student, I remember thinking it was a much needed change – why wouldn’t it be a good idea to improve patient safety and decrease resident fatigue? Alas, as a newly […]

Meet Our Au Pair – Childcare in Residency, Part 1

Our Au Pair

Going to an ultrasound, peering at the inside of your own uterus broadcast on a screen, and seeing a little embryonic heart beating is equal parts exciting and terrifying. Seeing two little embryonic hearts beating, while still exciting (especially after infertility), is mostly terrifying. After we got used to the idea of two babies, two cribs, two carseats, two NICU bills, two co-pays, and two adorable little girls we started approaching the issue of two […]

Ob/Gyn Residency – Month 1

2013-06-26 14.20.41

Sorry I’ve been away so long! Between graduating medical school, moving across the state with 6mo old twins, traveling, welcoming our new Au Pair, Odelia, and starting residency, life has been hectic, to say the least. I can only imagine life will continue to be hectic(-er), but now that I’m back to some what of a predictable routine my goal is to blog more frequently. Not for y’all – I’m sure you didn’t miss me […]

Patient Stories: Cancer & The Caregiver

Screen Shot 2012-07-26 at 8.01.02 AM

If you’ve been around here long you know that my love of social media goes beyond tweeting pictures of the most adorable twins on the planet and talking #meded with others in the healthcare world, it extends into the world of patients and their stories. Social media is fun, it’s interesting, and it’s a good way to interact, but more importantly social media is a teacher. I’ve learned more about how to be a compassionate […]

15% off at Uniformed Scrubs: 15pbrm I don’t usually do sponsored posts, but very occasionally someone contacts me with a request I feel like will benefit my readers, includes some cool perk for me, and fits well with the themes around here (on that note, BabyGap…I’m not even kidding…my twins. your clothes. this blog. make it happen).  Uniformed Scrubs asked if I wanted to review one of the Dickies Spring Line scrub tops and sent me […]

Twin Tuesday: Breastfeeding Twins

2013-03-30 14.21.36

We’re about to get real up in here and talk about something I think is so important to talk about publicly. So, if me talking about nursing my babies ain’t your thing feel free to exit now…otherwise, prepare yourself to get a tiny bit little personal. (P.S. Mind On Medicine could be abbreviated to M.O.M. Can we all take a moment to relish how ridiculously fitting that is?) I knew when I was pregnant that I wanted […]

Pediatrics Clerkship

pediatrician

This is a clerkship I was extremely excited about, because it was a field I was seriously considering going into! In fact, up until my third year Ob/Gyn rotation I was almost positive I would be a pediatrician some day. The clerkship was a lot of fun and definitely made my decision difficult, but as you already know Ob/Gyn ended up winning my heart…but not because Pedi let me down. Pediatrics This specialty is focused […]

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
