It is July again, and though I am now no longer a resident (yeah!) I certainly don't feel like an attending! I'm definitely feeling a lot of the nervousness I first felt 4 yrs ago as an intern.
So since it is a new year and many of us are in new ventures, I thought I'd throw out an invite for introductions.
As for me, I just completed my OB/Gyn residency 3 wks ago and took my written boards almost 2 wks ago. I am married to a general surgeon (for 16 yrs) and have 2 sons, ages 13 and 8. We're moving this week to Maryland where I will start my first attending job on August 1. So while I am technically on vaca this month, it certainly doesn't feel like it. And BTW, did I mention my husband bought our new house without me seeing it?!? (Everytime I think about it I get nauseated).
So that's a bit about me... who else is out there?
Well, I'm a new psych intern, kind of nervous, but glad that at least I finally get to have experience in the field I've been interested in for so long. It is weird getting used to a new hospital and a new home. I'm married, no kids yet but we can't wait to get started. Thanks for starting this.
I guess I am now a residency forum graduate, too! Starting my first job next week in private practice FP. Moved to a new state to join my husband, who is an anesthesia resident. We have 3 kids under 5.
Welcome to the new forum members, and congrats on your residency!

As far as feeling clueless...soooooo normal. I remember getting a call for a Tylenol order on my first call night and having to look up the dose, lol. I felt terrified!
I'm a little late (it's august)but I am happy to be a PGY1 in pathology! YAY! it is going well so far but I guess i thought it would be more of a job and less like school but they still treat us like grade school students which has me bummed a bit. I think I am tired of that. other than that , i am really enjoying it!
