I'm guessing that writing in my blog isn't on the list of things to do to study more efficiently, but I get a pat on the back for not being asleep right no as I wish I was. I just find endocrinology so boring... actually, I kind of find all of internal medicine boring. I can't wait to get through it and go on to obs/gyn. I would have probably gone into obs/gyn in another life where I didn't care about having a family and spending time with my loved ones and not being on call for the rest of my life. I find it exceedingly fascinating, but from what I know, it just doesn't mesh with the lifestyle I want. I know that people say that it's getting better, but the fact is that the schedules are less flexible than family med, it's hard to do it in a small town where you're the only obs/gyn there, and you still have to do call way too often for my liking.

I guess I should get back to learning about osteoporosis, hrmph.

I'm with you -- OB/GYN seems really really interesting (I've done a bunch of papers on prenatal screening and cesareans and stuff and it's fascinating to read about) but the call schedule is too insane. You can still incorporate it into your fam med practice though :)

How do you get the photo on your sidebar?

Uhm, Jess, what in the world does moving to Ireland for chocolate have to do with studying for endocrinology? (I'm trying to figure out the connection, but I honestly have no idea)

There is no connection.
