The end is near.
As I type this we are speeding through the month of June.
On June 30, my year as one of the Internal Medicine Chief Residents will come to a close.
Before this year began, I remember hearing a former chief resident fondly look back on his own time as chief resident years ago. He told me that was the best year of his career.
I don’t know if that nostalgic statement was supposed to be encouraging. It probably was.
Right now I hope that this year will not go down as the best year of my career.
I’ve had fun. I’ve had headaches. I’ve learned a lot — both clinically and in other professional areas as well.
But, like I said above, I sure hope that this year isn’t the best of my career and it’s all down from here!
