The last few months have been BUSY, but we just finished up and I am officially a second-year medical student! I’ve recently had several people ask me what it’s like in med school – how do we spend our time and whatnot. Sometimes it’s hard for me to imagine [remember] what life was like before…… Continue reading A Week in the Life
Home to dust, cacti, and rocks. Capitol Reef National Park is a little know plot of land stuck between Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Canyonlands National Park. Southern Utah is filled with a collection of canyons and desert and starry night skies. This was our destination as we hit I-70 early one Saturday morning to…… Continue reading Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
In a brief moment above the water, I thought I would take a breath of air before plunging back under. We started back at school on January 2nd. Winter break was the most relaxing, yet busy, two weeks. I managed to go yo-yo skiing, backcountry skiing, watch an absurd amount of the Crown and get…… Continue reading Perspective//
Hey, I know it’s been a while. These last two months have been humbling and exhausting and I haven’t had much energy to write. During this first semester of medical school, I’ve learned the entire human body, a multitude of rare genetic disorders and the molecular basis of disease.

Time seems to pass these days according to my exam schedule – and yes – we recently learned my entire fall…… Continue reading Monday Night Update
Human Body Block [aka Gross Anatomy] lasts 9 weeks. At the beginning it seemed like the block would take forever. I remember thinking to myself, “how will I ever make it through this?” Somehow, I’m making it through this. We are two tests down, with roughly 3 weeks left and one more exam. The days pass…… Continue reading A New Rhythm
I’m officially a 4-week old medical student. Not a doctor yet, but people continue to insist that “there’s a doctor in the room if I trip and fall”. It’s a strange feeling being here. For many of us this has been our dream for a long time. We’ve gone through the whole process of taking…… Continue reading Be You.
