This month is my first of two months rotating at one of the local county medical centers. It is very different than either of the other two hospitals in which we find ourselves.
Traditionally it has been called our “senior capstone” experience — acting as the senior resident at the county.
The patient population is diverse. Sick patients walking daily with strange diagnoses.
At night, we find ourselves mostly on our own covering the ICU patients.
During intern year, my first rotation was here at County.
It is very strange to find myself back, now in the senior resident position.
They say time flies. I am counting on it.
