The Last Day

Today I signed off on my last chart as an M4. I carefully placed my last sutures in my last patient as a medical student. I helped cardiovert a gentleman in SVT. I reduced a Colle’s fracture. I spoke to a patient about their depression. I got the chance to ultrasound a woman to alleviate some stress regarding her pregnancy. I wrote and explained, created plans, followed up on my own patients, and laughed with my colleagues about how fast the past 16 months have gone.


Then just like that, it was over. The shift… and the clinical rotations of medical school.
