3. How I became an Anesthesiologist 

This post detailed the process of picking a specialty choice and how I ended up choosing to go into Anesthesia.

When you’ve spent time as an anesthesia resident at a Level 1 Trauma center, there isn’t much you haven’t seen.

5. A Medical School goes Pass/Fail only: Why this is an Excellent Change!

The medical school I graduated started the fall 2016 semester with their basic science classes switching to Pass/Fail grading only (previously Honors-High Pass-Pass-Fail). With all the talk on medical student, resident, and physician burn out, I think this is an important change for medical student well being. Read about my personal struggles as well as the benefits I see in a Pass/Fail system.
