Vikas Bhushan and Tao Le Bring You: First Aid For The Wards

So, I've been pretty MIA the past few weeks. Why, you ask? Well, I recently started my clinical rotations or clerkships. I have pediatrics first. It's been pretty fun so far. Our system is set up to have 2 weeks of neonatology, 2 weeks of outpatient clinics, and 1 month of inpatient. I have finished the neonatology / outpatient month and am now midway through the inpatient month. The kids have been surprisingly easy to work with and I haven't gotten sick yet... *crosses fingers*

In a future post, I'll discuss some resources that I have found useful, but for starting clinical rotations overall, First Aid for the Wards is pretty good. It gives you an overview of the hierarchy on the wards, how notes work, and common practices and diseases within each specialty. I definitely impressed my attendings by knowing about 'cupping' from the pediatrics section. Check it out:
