Happy Monday everyone! Today I wanted to share with you all something that seems to confuse a lot of people - the timeline of what actually happens in medical school. All medical schools have different curriculums so I can only share the way it works currently at Harvard, but for the most part the first two years are spent learning from books and professors, the last two are spent learning from patients and doctors (and nurses!).
So there you have it! A rough idea of what goes on each year. N and I were both already planning on doing our 5th years; I did a ton of research in undergrad, missed the lab setting big time, and am interested in immunology and dermatology which meant getting some protected research time in was a priority for me. It just happened to work out that we'll have baby girl now, which is perfect because I don't have to take any type of leave and have an incredibly supportive P.I. (principle investigator, or the head researcher of a lab, mine is an incredible MD/PhD supermom with an infectious curiosity for what we study).
Let me know what you guys think of the post! I try to keep my "medical school" related posts relatively few and far between as I thought the readers interested in it were equally few and far between, but I'm thinking that is changing? Make sure you comment below so I can know! Have great weeks guys.
