I’ve been meaning to get back into blogging for quite some time. I hope to share more of my thoughts and experiences here in the coming months and years. I would love if you could follow my journey and share your thoughts, too.
Having been a resident in Emergency Medicine for more than 2 years now, and having completed 4 years of medical school, preceded by 4 years of college, I feel I’ve had a bit of experience within the culture of medicine. I’ve seen it from many perspectives. I was a volunteer in high school and college. I participated in clinical research in college. I became a volunteer EMT and ultimately AEMT-CC in upstate NY in college and rode for my college agency for two years. I was a medical student in Philadelphia as well as the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. For the past two years I’ve been a resident in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
There are a lot of things I’ve seen and been a part of over the past 12 years that have impacted me, and changed me. I’ve gone through a lot of growth, and been through some challenging times. I do come from a background of privilege, and I am not aware of this. The challenges I have gone through are not the kind you may think of when you think of the word challenges. I have never needed to worry about survival, whether I would have a safe place to live, or food on my table each day. I have also been fortunate to come from a loving and supportive family that has been behind me every step of the way.
I will be discussing more about my experiences as a creative outlet.
