And so it begins...

Medical Student Observer forms filled out...check!
Immunization Records up to date...check!
PPD Tuberculosis skin test...negative! (that's a good thing)
Doctor(s) who are willing to let me shadow them...check!
Hospital badge so I don't get kicked out of the hospital...check!

So, looks like I'm all set! Once I get the go-ahead email, I'll head in on Monday for my first day. The shifts are 6am-6pm, but it doesn't seem like any of the docs start before 7 or 7:30. We'll see how long I actually last on the shifts, but I'm gonna try and stick em out.

Also, Dr. C is doing a surgery Tuesday morning that he's willing to let me watch, so I'll probably be in for that too.

We'll see how this all goes, I'm pretty much playing by ear as it is.
