Half the battle in clerkship is having the endurance to finish. I just spent my last 30 hours in the hospital. I was on call the night before but our team was short staffed so I worked today too. Some may disagree and say that you should go home once your hour limit has been reached, but I see it more as a guideline than a hard rule. Sometimes you get to do a procedure or see something new if you stay on just a bit more.
I’m also on call tomorrow. And on Tuesday. The call schedule is pretty brutal for the next little while, so I’m going to take tonight to cook some good food, eat well, not study and rest up for the next few days ahead.
