  • 01/28/18--21:00: Her Wardrobe
  • In high school, I was obsessed with wearing only vintage clothing. After hours of painstakingly searching every clothing rack at Goodwill, I would find a well-worn baseball jersey or an elaborately bejeweled Christmas sweater. I felt a sense of immense pride in reclaiming someone else's memories -- their winning games, their holiday parties - in an attempt to express my “uniqueness”.

  • 02/22/18--21:00: Ready to Go
  • The very first patient I ever met on my internal medicine rotation was someone who hated being in the hospital. He took every opportunity in the following ten days to remind us that he was waiting to be discharged.

  • 03/04/18--21:00: Outside the Room
  • I was called to a code the other day. Now I should probably clarify: as a medical student, I don’t actually do anything (unless they really need people for compressions). In fact, I wasn’t even in the room.

  • 03/06/18--21:00: The Testing Epidemic
  • Daily labs are commonly ordered on hospitalized patients. While such tests may be indicated when patients are acutely ill and the clinical picture is unclear, there are many times when this is not the case.

    Some of my friends and family are really fascinated when I tell them I'm on my third-year surgery rotation. It is hard to convey how glamorous and inspiring it is, so I've written a short summary of a morning in the operating room.

    I know this sounds clichéed, but as my third year of medical school draws to a close, I realize that my photography adventure is pretty similar to my third year.

  • 07/17/18--21:00: The Ways We Fail
  • Empathy is a muscle you have to exercise just like any other. It is a choice. It’s something you have to study and practice and sometimes fail at and always try again.

    While there is no way to choose our patients’ outcomes, we can certainly choose to be empathetic and compassionate regardless of their outcomes. Medicine without empathy and compassion is not medicine at all.

  • 10/14/18--21:00: My First Code Blue
  • “Are you okay, sweetie?” asks the intern as we start to ascend. She is completely unconscious, looking into nothingness. I start to feel the adrenaline. “I don’t think she’s okay,” remarks the intern.

    Though the white coat’s role in medicine today is complex -- to some, a respected symbol of medicine's history; to others, a antiquated relic of a paternalistic past -- few medical students or frontline residents would deny this emblematic item one major utility: a source of pockets.
