So I've received some of the information from my program including orientation dates, ACLS/ PALS certification requirements, vacation request form (really? I have to decide that now?), and information on how to obtain my IDs. I'm excited and scared all at once. I'm amped but pertrified. I'll be a medical student, but a doctor. Oh dear...it's so close.
Wife made a comment about our president's speech wherein he discussed days that will stay with you forever; included was the first time when you hear someone calling "doctor" and you look around - only to realize they're calling you. She didn't think it would be that memorable since I've been called doctor in the past by various hospital employees and wondered whether it would really make that much difference in May.
"Yeah it will." I said. "Because this time I can't tell them I'm just the medical student and get out of being responsible. I'm actually the doctor they're wanting".
I get seriously puckered just thinking about that.
