About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.

  1. During rounds:
    Outgoing DVM: My rounds are going to take forever.
    Incoming DVM: If you take more than 30mins for those two cases, you wear the cone of shame.
    Intern: Where y’all keep the timers?
