continuity of care

21 Mar

I ran into one of my classmates yesterday evening who mentioned that she was discouraged that she has yet to be in a clinical setting during rotations where she could really see herself professionally, and it reminded me that I should be looking out for what I want to do with my life.  Although I have more questions than ever before, I’m starting to think that having a longitudinal relationship with my patients is important to me.  I’m in the last week of my family medicine rotation, and I’ve seen at least a half dozen patients for the second or third time–and I really like that.  Nothing terribly profound or specific, but it might rule out…I don’t know…surgical trauma?–except, of course, for the unfortunate repeat customers.
