With second year coming to a close in roughly 5 weeks, my thoughts are frequently on the future. One year of didactic learning remains before I am thrust into a year of clinical rotations. The more time escapes, the more I am anxious to narrow down my course of action post graduation.
I’ve given much consideration to it, & I’d like to pursue a residency at my current place of employment. This would keep me in Nashville another year with a small stipend, but would potentially widen my job opportunities significantly. I’d also have the opportunity to become a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist. It is a relief to just have a goal to push towards & hopefully attain.
Here’s to getting to it.

It’s important to make sense out of things if you want to improve. If you have no clue who you are, it’s much harder to figure out what you actually want, and why. As a rock climber, this is an allusive anecdote of wisdom. When you want to get “better,” or climb “harder,” you must first figure out why you are doing it. —
