Looking back, it's funny to realize that my interest in emergency medicine began with a flyer for an EMT certification course. In the years since pausing at that random campus bulletin board and thinking, Hey, that could be interesting, I've learned a lot, while simultaneously realizing how very little I know. But somewhere between taking care of trauma patients and listening to drunken renditions of '80s power ballads, I realized that this is what I want to do with my life.

And in just a few short weeks, through incredible good fortune and thanks to the support of my family and friends, I'll move even closer to that goal by starting medical school. Unfortunately, the trade off means that my time in the Big City ED, and the stories that came with it, must come to an end. I'm really going to miss the wonderful people I've worked with over the years.

I'm sure med school will produce one or two amusing stories of its own, which I may try to post from time to time. To everyone who has stopped by this blog, thanks for reading. It's been fun.

Booo! I vote you post about your med school exploits. There must be some Grey's Anatomy/Scrubs-like hijinks to write about!
