Been three days since starting Emergency Medicine. Its really weird how its related and yet different from general medicine. Different skill sets and focus.
Emergency Medicine has been pleasantly challenging. I was so honoured when a respectable Med Reg asked for my opinion about a gout patient and what management is most appropriate (advise on confirmatory diagnosis and long term management). Rheumatology really trained me well.
The past few days been seeing quite a bit of gore. I’m still slightly squeamish when it comes to open wounds (seen things that I cannot unsee).
Glad that its the weekend. Enjoyed my quality time with my fiancee. =)
