So I have just started on obstretrics and gynecology. I’ll have less free time over the next 6 weeks, so more of my blogging is going to be of the personal variety this. I feel the need to post pretty regularly, and the research heavy posts demand more time than just telling you what my life is like.
Tomorrow will be my first clinical day on OB. I’ll be starting on Labor and Delivery(L&D). I suspect a good number of my readers have seen L&D from the other side of the awkward-chair-with-stirrups. I’m going to try to put down some quality posts about how things are from the medical student side of things.
I’d love to see everyone out theres thoughts on OBGYN in general, and L&D/birth specifically as we get started here. Actually, I’m relying on you guys to help provide me with patient perspectives I may not get in the hospital. Feel free to post your thoughts, questions, stories (both good and bad), and whatever else you think is relevant!
A side note: direct you guys back to the disclaimers page on the side bar. Skip down to the part about patients. Whenever I post about life in the hospital, I will always change any potentially identifying details of any people involved, and whenever possible I’ll be using patient pastiches (combinations of multiple patients) rather than real single patients. This is out of respect to the people involved, and in compliance with the variety of patient privacy laws in force.
