News, news, news

After a well-deserved summer holiday break (which was lovely, I felt so grateful and relaxed!), I am back on track in medicine world again! The past year has been quite something (luckily I aced all my rotations!), and I think the upcoming months will be quite something too, but then different. Let me update you! […]

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, […]

The sight of a dead baby
