Third rotation DOWN! When I say "time flies" I am not joking. Currently, I'm in my Internal Medicine Rotation (Part 1) so I just wanted to take a little bit of time to do a recap of my previous rotation: Pediatrics.Read More
Hey everyone! Today, I want to share with you guys my experience in my surgery rotation, as well as some hopefully helpful tips for the shelf exam. If you missed the one from my Family Medicine rotation, you can read all about it here.
So, if you all couldn't tell surgery has been my favorite rotation thus far.Read More
Now that I’m out of my surgery rotation and in pediatrics, it’s back to wearing professional attire. Since in peds, there are lots of moving around with the kiddos, mixing the physical exam with some playtime I’m lately opting for some leggings! I’m wearing one of my favorite ones here and they are from Zara. It’s navy blue with black paneling on the sides! I love pairing it with a longer top, also blue but in a different shade. I feel like doing this is one way to pull an outfit together. Another way to accessorize a professional outfit in medical school is through your stethoscope!Read More
Can y'all believe it's already almost OCTOBER?! This year is just flying by so fast, and um side note, there's only 119 days left until J + I get married. SAY WHAT?! Yes. So time is definitely flying. Today, I want to share with you all how I was able to whiten my teeth at home, safely and effectively! When I was younger I tried crest strips and all that but never really was consistent with it and felt like it didn't make a difference for me. So, I was very excited when Smile Brilliant contacted me and allowed me to try out their teeth-whitening system!Read More
Hello friends! It's been over 2 weeks since ending my Family Medicine Rotation and I wanted to share with you all my experience as well as some tips on the shelf exam. Our family medicine rotation lasts for 8 weeks and we take the shelf at the end of it. For osteopathic students, we take the DO-version of the shelf but I imagine it's pretty similar, except of course ours has the osteopathic aspect in it.Read More
I'm a little bit over a week into my surgery rotation and it's been such a different experience! I was in family medicine for 8 weeks, and so being in the OR and in the surgery clinic has been such a different environment. One of my most favorite thing about it is the team work - each and every individual plays a vital role in the outcome of the patient. Anyway, I digress - today what I really wanted to share with you all is the Medelita Ionic Jacket! Which by the way, I wish I can wear into the OR.
This will be a "first impression" review since I haven't gotten a chance to actually wear this out to the hospital. I did wear it around the house with my workout clothes to lounge in. Hope you all enjoy this review!
Color choices: there are only two options available, navy blue or black. While the choices seem underwhelming, it's the two colors that are very versatile to wear within different hospitals. After all, this is meant to be a scrub jacket.
Style: I love the athletic style of this jacket, hence why I was wearing it with my workout clothes! It's got a sleek look to it, all the pockets you can ever ask for, and also a vent in the back to keep you cool. Also, the back is slightly longer to cover the tush if that's something that you like! As I mentioned, it's got A LOT of pockets so you're sure to have a place for your snacks, phone, pens, and whatever else you keep on hand.
Fit: Now, while the shoulder area fit me just fine, i found the length to be a little long. I know that this specific jacket was made to be long, but I'm only 5'2" so I think it's a little longer on me. This was not a big problem for me though! It's not body-hugging either, meaning the fit is looser on me. I guess different overall fit for different body types, but you'll see down below how it lays on my frame. (I got the XS for reference).
Quality: Last but not least, the quality. When I first took it out of the packaging, the material seemed high-quality and that it'll keep me warm once I do get to wear it around the hospital (which I'm excited to wear it for!). When I did wear it to lounge around in, it kept me warm because I tend to get cold easily. As far as a material, it is a little stretchy, and it's supposed to dry fast just in case you spill anything on it ;)
