My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... and olive oil, battered fish for my second course and some rice pudding for dessert. The drinks and food were so good I really didn't want to stop eating, and I got to really connect with my friends at my table which was nice because many of them were from Session A and hadn't spoken to me much. Dinners have been sketchy here, very hit or miss to say the least, but I can honestly say that our coordinators did a good job of making it up to us tonight. Props to them for making it ...

Gynecology

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 16, 2014

Week 5 is here! I can't believe how fast this whole experience has gone by! It feels like just yesterday I was anxiously running around the airport hopelessly trying to make it to my terminal on time, and now here I am running around La Laguna as if it were my home town.

For my final week, I'm in the Gynecology unit with one of the session A fellows, Mary Hunter. Today was our first day, and I have to say that I'm more excited for the specialty now than ...

... soup, fried cheese with honey and basil sauces, huge plates of chicken and ribs, and then finished the whole thing off with some cake. The people around me were mostly vegetarians, so I got to eat a lot of ribs and chicken--practically all of it actually--so by the time we got to the bus I was so full I felt like I was going to throw up. It was so worth it though.

It was so cool to meet our new fellows, and I loved going to the beach and seeing the mountains, so I had ...

Week 4

... to experience my time here more.

This week I'm in internal medicine, which I was skeptical about before this trip. I've shadowed an internist before (although only once for a few hours), and though I recognized the importance of the specialty, I never saw myself generalizing the way internists must. You basically get to be a jack of all trades and a master of none, which is why primary care never appealed to me. This week has changed my mind--at least ...
