Teaching Practice

So far my teaching practice placement in Collingwood has been awesome; this is in no small part because my Aunt and Uncle have rolled out the red carpet of hospitality. If I keep drinking wine at this rate, I'll never get any studying done. On Friday my supervisor was gone so after rounds I snuck out snowboarding. Hopefully this week I'll get out night boarding one of the days. The hospital is small but offers lots of opportunity for family doctors to work in the full scope of their practice. The family docs basically look after all the in-patients both medical and ortho and ICU! I'm scared S***less for the first time I have an ICU patient to look after, but my supervisor strikes a really good balance between pushing for independence and having good backup, which is great.

I am also spending my weekends trying to get in some good xc-ski training and bike training and quality time with Ben. This hasn't left a lot of time for cracking the books but I've vowed to start this week now that I have my feet under me. I'm sad that this weekend has gone by so fast.

I'm from was a fun place to grow up, but as my high school transcript clearly shows there is a lot to do other than studying.
No worries though, the CCFP exam mainly is a fair representation of what you have been doing for the past 2 years anyways. Good luck with studying!!
