Clinically Immersed, need help!

How the days fly! As I get immersed into the Clinical Immersion at Stanford Hospital, my mind is buzzing with an overload of thoughts. I seem to be taking every observation as an area on intervention and thinking of solutions already. I need to hold back and spend more time analyzing...also need to spend more time discussing and building on thoughts (and not ideas!).

For most reading it, this might sounds like utter gibberish, but this is my mind talking, just random stuff. But this has been my life for the past one month. I am not a doctor (and can possibly never be one), but have been spending a lot of time at the Stanford hospital, meeting doctors, observing (never participating :)) procedures and running around trying find to eat lunches!

Jon and me in scrubs last week :)

I am also getting to fulfill the childhood fantasy of living like a doctor, at least dressing like one :) Based on where we would be spending our day, we wear formals with white lab coats (for in-patient or out-patient rounds) or surgeon's scrubs (for procedures). This picture is in fact taken inside the Biodesign lab, and my partner here is Jonathon. For now, we are together for these rounds, will swap partner with the other team later.

The post seems disjointed, and makes no sense even to me. It would get clearer as time goes by, I just needed to take this one out. I am sure more fluid thoughts shall follow.

Also on my mind is the Indian dinner treat from Siraj at Sakoon (downtown, Mountain view), morning walking, fooding and photography session at the Farmer's market (California Avenue, Palo Alto), the missed trip to the Science Museum today morning and the fabulous pastries and quiche waiting for consumption right in front of me.

    1. Haha...I wouldn't really call this dressing up. This is needed to get access to areas that doctors go to and spend time with the patients...

      Surely more photographs will follow :)

  9. Its crazy but I guess sometime doing something out of the ordinary is what one needs. Though you might not continue doing this, its probably the best way to explore the other crazy side of you.

    Waise this blue colored uniform super cool lagta hai.. :D

    1. :) This is just my work uniform for the next few weeks...that's all! And trust me its not bringing out any crazy side of me, maybe the more saner part of me :)

      Delete
    2. saner part of you!! No no.. I suggest you immediately stop in that case! Madness is required and very few have the right amount of it. .

      Delete
    3. Haha :) I hope I have the right mix in that case :)
