My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... with my friends on the beach for the last time, have a few well deserved drinks, talk with Avi (from UIowa) about MCAT and premed course work, walk on the most jagged rocks I think I've ever been on, get sunburned on my legs (AGAIN), take some embarrassingly ridiculous selfies, interrupt a game of rugby between Spaniards, and get lost in the beauty of my favorite place in the north of Tenerife. I didn't want to leave the beach, but I really needed to get back home to put on ...

Gynecology

... Laguna, the doctors were very concerned about the baby's development, but they induced her labor (for reasons I don't really know the details of). She ended up having the baby at 26 weeks--last Friday--and now she's recovering on the unit.

We only have one more weekend here before we all go our separate ways, so I'm really thankful that I got to have a great one with my friends. It's so crazy to think that two weeks from now, I won't even be here anymore! I'm dreading leaving the island, but I also can't wait to see my girlfriend and family again. Here's to an awesome weekend!

Week 4

... br> Paco, the doctor I am shadowing, has taken me all over the hospital, showing me all the different patients he sees on a regular basis. I know exactly what you're thinking: "An internist in the hospital? How is that possible?" It turns out that Spain's definition of what internal medicine is supposed to be is completely different from ours--mostly because of cultural and political differences in how the two countries approach primary care and healthcare at ...
