Family medicine on the heath

My last and final rotation was in family medicine. I was placed at a small solo-practice in an even smaller village. The surroundings were beautiful. Everyday I enjoyed the drive, especially the part that crossed the heath. Made the drive in my frying car worthwhile. With the heat and the religious community, and no airco, […]

Lifestyle changes

I see myself as a healthy-living person. I work out a lot and eat healthily. I was trying to balance my life, and it was going the right way. Then there came rotations. Something that kicked my life out of order and totally took over. I was tired, felt bloated, didn’t see any daylight. I […]

The verdict on Gynecology & Obstetrics

I’m already a week into Surgery, but once again I have successfully completed another rotation:¬†Gynecology¬†& Obstetrics. And I actually liked this one. It seemed to take ages before it was done, but that had probably to do with the holidays. Not that I mind. I had a good time. I felt welcome in the group, […]
