Clinically, Who Should We Call “Doctor?”

Introduction

Occasionally I see a patient I took care of a while back wandering around the hospital. This particular patient consistently refers to me as “She-Won’t-Let-Me-Call-Her-Doctor,” it cracks me up every time, but I’m well aware of where I got the nickname. “Hello, Dr. Jones” is a phrase I’ve begun to hear more and more in the past few weeks. While it is interesting to hear myself referred to as “doctor,” a doctor I am not and, as […]

As a medical student on the inpatient Internal Medicine floor my job is not just to learn about history-taking and practice my physical exam skills, it’s to be a part of the team caring for real, live patients. I actually have the chance to make a difference. Since I’m a noob I am usually only assigned to a couple of patients at a time. This small patient load plus my low magnitude of responsibility means I […]

Life As I Know It…

is about to drastically change.My job is no longer simply learning about the basic science of disorders and regurgitating answers on exams…starting next week I get my first real taste of what a doctor does. My first clinical rotation is Internal Medicine and I am very excited to see the ins and outs of hospital work.

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.
