Wrapping up PGY2

It's crazy to think, but June marks my last month as a first year dermatology resident - next month we move up in the ranks as second year residents and welcome a new incoming class of first years! 

A quick breakdown of residency in dermatology:
After graduating medical school:
PGY1 - Intern year, usually in general medicine, occasionally people choose a year of pediatrics or general surgery
PGY2 - first year dermatology 
PGY3- second year dermatology
PGY4 - third year dermatology
Graduate!

Depending on what you want to do, you can then do fellowship (although definitely not required), a few options include:
Mohs fellowship
Dermatopathology fellowship
Procedural fellowship 

Shirt  //  Scrub bottoms  //  Bag 

So next month I'll be a PGY3. This year has been absolutely incredible. The amount we've learned has been just unreal - as expected (and part of the reason I wanted to be at this program), the patient volume was huge, the population and pathology incredibly diverse - and my surgery skills are getting better and better! I've gotten consulted by the emergency room in the middle of the night to rule out Stevens Johnson Syndrome (and had to call the pathologist in to analyze my frozen), had to biopsy a 3 day old baby with likely Epidermolysis Bullosa, started treatment for just-diagnosed Leprosy (yup, we even have a Leprosy clinic), diagnosed way more skin cancers than I could ever count (same for scabies lol), cut out cancers and reconstructed faces, and starting to find my place in my passion which is taking care of skin of color. 

Dermatology programs all consist of the same types of stuff, but you'd be surprised how different they all are with regards to which year you do what, how much of a certain thing you actually do, etc. My program is very front-loaded (which I love), so our first year is considered harder than most by dermatology standards. We admit inpatients and cover the inpatient service as first years, cover all of the weekend call (which means seeing the inpatients and new consults for 4 different hospitals) and holiday calls, do a rotation in wound clinic (taking care of chronic ulcers), and spend most of our clinic time in our public hospital that serves those without health insurance.

Dress (love this ruffle version too!)  //  Flats (almost identical)  //  Bag  //  Bracelet

Next year (meaning next month lol) we get to do more specialized rotations - a rotation on dermatopathology, one in pediatrics, one in Mohs surgery, and more clinics with our specialty attendings - including Hair and Nails, Pigmented Lesions, and more. And no more weekend or holiday call! I'm done with that forever! 

Anyway, just sharing a little update since I can't believe we're already in June, and because so many of you always ask about how residency is set up - it really is program-dependent so I just share a bit of mine!
