Coming Soon: Second Shift, MD!

Breaking news: Over the weekend I was accepted to one of my top choices for their medical school class of 2014!

It has been a long journey to reach this point. I am profoundly relieved, extraordinarily grateful, and still somewhat shocked that somebody thinks I have what it takes to be called "Doctor" in a little over four years from now.

I can't express how thankful I am to the many people in my life who helped me reach this point, nor how excited I am for this incredible opportunity. I know there is a long road ahead, but for the time being, I'm simply savoring the moment.

Good times. Do you think you'll do emergency medicine? Or something totally different

Right now that's what I have my heart set on, but it's also what I've been most exposed to. I'm definitely open to new experiences in med school, so your break down of the pros and cons of different specialties makes for great reading. At the end of the day, though, I'm hoping to end up in EM.
