Day 1 of orientation was great overall! I had that feeling of being a newbie and having to introduce myself to others, feeling awkward, sure i looked fat in my white pants etc. But I was so glad, that the residents were nice. The chief resident is HILARIOUS! had us quaking with fear initially, but he was just joking.
I come from a private med school/hospital so I have been a little spoiled. This hospital is associated with a state university so like all state funded thingies, is not maintained well in certain areas. They are not completely rid of paper charts, while i can't remember the last time i saw somethng not on computer. However, I am psyched at being exposed to something different.
- this hospital is a freaking maze, i hope i learn my way quick!
- I LOVE that the cafeteria has starbucks and a chinese restauant
-fellow intern B is cute and pretty chatty. He's engaged so don't worry I am not entertaining lustful thoughts.
- this hospital doesn't have much money. I don't even know if I have any perks, this one they've been hiding the contracts from us :)
