Clerkships

It has been a while since I last struggled to wake up in the wee hours of the morning.

Donned in lab coat and surgical mask, we made our way into the hospital on Tuesday, the first day of hospital clerkship. 5 rotations in total and I had a taste of drug information centre for the first week. A short lecture, mock phone call enquiries, drug bulletin and QnA discussion session summed up the rotation at the information centre. Administrative and secretarial work is scarcely my dish and so, the first rotation to me, was actually dreary and monotonous. 

Therapeutic drug monitoring and total parenteral nutrition clerkships are perchance, the physically and mentally challenging ones. Those who went through it the first week would swear at the amount of workload they had to endure.

That sparked a class discussion, or a parley I would say. The gist, majority opted for diminution. Truthfully, it was the session progression  that dismayed me, not the result.

Anyway, a good time to rest, read and revise, thanks to the long weekend.
