“Finding the career you love leaves you with nothing but laughs and smiles on a daily basis 😍What’s even better than finding the career you love you might ask? Finding scrubs you love.  These are the softest most flattering scrubs you’ll ever own!” @theboneafiedpac -

I usually catch up on #medical #news on #wellnesswednesday and this caught my eye because we have always been taught about the protective effects of #aspirin as we age! 😮
.
.
Three different articles published in the #nejm found that “a regimen of low-dose aspirin offers #healthy, older people no benefit in staving off #cardiovascular disease, #dementia or #disability and increases their risk of #bleeding in the #digestive tract and #brain.”
.
.
This reinforces the results from a #study published in late August, which found that “daily low-dose aspirin was too risky to be prescribed to patients at moderate risk of #heart disease.”
.
.
As always, our medical #knowledge and #science continues to evolve thanks to #research and #evidencebased #medicine .
.
Remember to talk to #doctor FIRST before changing any of your #medications 🏥

operating makes me feel ALIVE- there is nothing more powerful than what sets your SOUL on 🔥 FIRE 🔥 
as a woman the backlash of saying “ i want to be a surgeon” comes from everywhere - “so you won’t have kids or a family?” 😑 really? I was completely clueless no doubt even with a father who is a surgeon 👨🏻‍⚕️ but maybe that’s the BEST way.  you follow your heart & somehow it all works out.  never settle. 
your passion becomes your energy & this elevates every experience in your life.

a leap of faith that gives you wings & then you FLY!

It's interview season for all my pre-PA peeps that are applying this cycle & I have a secret to share with you... I know EXACTLY what they are looking for...
They are looking for YOU! 😉 that's all really. You should be so proud of yourself, that out of thousands of applications, they picked you solely off of a SHEET OF PAPER!!! You DEFINITELY did something right!!
It's normal to be nervous, but be proud that you have this opportunity to now show them why they made a good choice & prove why you're meant to be in that seat next year! 
So practice if you want -- enough to not be surprised, but not too much where you sound like a robot 🤖
So the secret's out!!!! They want to meet YOU and know you're human & that you are dedicated, ready as heck and completely COMMITTED to a life full of learning & compassion -- go kill it!
& let me know when/if you got an interview so I can wish you the most luck ever 💫✨ (and provide ya a pep talk😉)

Did you know blue light affects your sleep cycles? How many hours a day are you doing screen time? Talk to us about our anti fatigue/ blue light lenses! #bluelight #computeruse #fatigue #tiredeyes #proootix
We spend a lot of time sharing the highlights of our life. 
It's fun to talk about the victories, the yes's, the I love yous, the new beginnings... But what if instead of ONLY celebrating the highs, we spent time EMBRACING the lows, the rejections, the broken hearts?

It's amazing what a small dose of perspective can do for you in a challenging situation.

2018 has taught me the importance of embracing my obstacles and welcoming my struggles. You learn a lot more about life and yourself when you're at the bottom. It's an incredibly humbling place to be.

So here's to the moments that have shaped us and allowed us to grow. Without them, the wins wouldn't be quite so sweet.

"You never know the biggest day of your life is going to be the biggest. The days you think are going to be the big ones, they are never as big as you make them out to be in your head. It's the regular days, the ones that start out normal. Those are the days that end up being the biggest." --Izzie Stevens. Grey’s Anatomy

Canella was feeling a little camera shy today but her lip is healing well! You may remember my post two weeks ago about her torn lip and the repair method I used. Although it isn’t perfect her canine tooth is no longer exposed and her lip margins are inline making it easier for her to eat, drink and I think she looks very beautiful! Her lovely owners also let me borrow the washing machine when ever I need it, what goes around comes around! #yougetwhatyougive .

Last night was the best 21st birthday present ever, as I finally was able to volunteer at my first clinic. I saw my first real life patients, and there’s just no feeling quite like it. This week has been super overwhelming, but getting to see patients brings everything together and reminds me why I’m so determined to become a physician. 🎂 👩🏽‍⚕️ #21 #21stbirthday #birthdaygirl #birthday #medicine #med #medstudent #medschool #medicalstudent #happy #happybirthday #student #motivation #passion #love #futuredoctor #womenempowerment #womeninmedicine #femaledoctor #minoritiesinmedicine #womeninstem #goals #stethoscope #studentdoctor

Our #wcw today is @drrupawong she is a surgeon, mother, wife, non-profit contributor, managing partner and social media influencer. She has a lot of great tips (like interviewing below) in addition to how to build on failure, manage “it all” [we love “prioritize, organize, outsource”], and ignite your passions on her website (drrupawong.com). She was shared on our “who inspires you” post and we can’t wait to see what she does next. Nominate someone/yourself for our next #wcw below and head over to @drrupawong to show her some love

#repost Interview tips - Part One, The Prep. I was on the residency selection committee at NYU as Chief Resident and interviewed fellowship applicants when I was at Boston Children’s.  I interview high schoolers for Duke and staff for my office.  Since I know it’s interview season now, I thought I would dole out things I look for when interviewing.  But, remember it really is about finding the best fit for the program and for yourself.
1️⃣ Dress appropriately - this one really is a no brainer, but I have to start with it. You want the interviewers to focus on you and not what you’re wearing.  Wear a suit.  And even though you all know I love my 4.5 inch heels, don’t wear them to an interview.  You’ll be touring the hospital/school and you want to be able to keep up.

2️⃣ Know your resume - Know absolutely every single thing you list on your application.  In detail.  Without exception and extensively.  If you listed it on there, you should be able to discuss even tangential topics related to it.

3️⃣Don’t exaggerate on your application or during your interview - You’d be surprised at how many applicants fold when I ask a follow up question to their volunteer experience. “Oh, well, it says 2 years there, but I really only went twice during that period”. Not good. It will get found out.

4️⃣Be confident - good eye contact, firm hand shake, sit straight.  This is your chance to show you’re a real person, someone that they want to work alongside, who demonstrates the empathy and focus required for medicine. 
5️⃣Do your research - learn about the med school or program to which you’re applying

⠀
Fun fact: My husband is a third year veterinary student at Texas A&M, and we were both homeschooled!⠀
⠀
⠀
Future goals: to serve the rural population of East TX, and to promote patient education in the workplace.⠀
⠀
⠀
Women in medicine who have inspired you: My high school medical terminology teacher - Mrs. Hernandez, RN inspired me with constant encouragement and guidance. I will always remember her telling me, “The light within you will only be fully shared with others as a physician.  I can see that as plain as day.” I truly don’t believe I would be where I am today without her!⠀
⠀
⠀
Advice for women pursuing medicine: Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people. It makes a difference! ⠀
⠀
A personal motto: Endeavor to persevere ⠀

Note from COSGP: make sure to go check out @megsmedicalmems as she chronicles her medical school career!⠀

Need a new backpack 🎒 
I’ve been thinking of getting a Kanken, but I’m open to anything that’s durable and cost efficient. 
What backpack do you recommend?
And if you say Kanken, which color should I get?

Let’s talk about eye myths! 🤓
.
#1 Wearing glasses makes your eyes dependent: No, you just see more clearly with them on.
#2 Not wearing glasses trains your eyes to be stronger💪🏼: No, it just causes more eye strain. 
#3 Lasik permanently fixes your vision 👁: Your eyes can still change over time and even after surgery.  Also you might need readers after 40.
#4 Carrots🥕 are good for you: It has beta carotene & vitamin A, which protects eyes but doesn’t reverse myopia.
#5 Sitting close to the TV 📺 at night makes your vision worst: No, it just causes eye fatigue.
————— .
Myopia is mostly genetics, but there are some possible methods of myopia control: ortho-k and computer/reading correction! Also important to have a healthy diet, avoid smoking, and wear UV & blue light protection!💕

Morocco...has captured our hearts on Day 1.
.
Such a beautiful country.
.
This photo was taken at Jardin Majorelle, which was commissioned by Jacques Majorelle in the 1930’s, and encompassed a living work of art of exotic plants and rare species during his worldwide travels. It was revitalized  by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner and now the foundation they created provides grants to cultural and educational events in Morocco and conferences on topics like Berber culture, botany, etc. .
We were really struck by the social consciousness of the garden, and quite frankly the beauty of it all.
.
Do you have a special place you have visited during your travels that really resonated with you? We also loved Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town ❤️

Both Trauma-focused CBT and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) are effective for treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 🌼
🌱
In the simplest explanation: EMDR identifies salient images, negative thoughts, and body sensations related to the trauma experience and asks the patient to focus on these while moving their eyes back and forth. #evidencebased #behaviorialhealth #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #talktherapy #psychologist #psychiatrist #ptsd #womeninmedicine #somedocs

There will be long late nights, super early mornings. Lots of associates, very few friends. No matter how many times you fail, always pick yourself back up & try again. There becomes a point where it all become too much. When we get too tired to fight anymore. So we give up. That’s when the real work begins. To find hope where there seems to be absolutely none at all.

So it’s Wednesday today and I have my first MedSurg lecture exam on Friday. Yet, I’m here making study guides for my skills exam next Monday on Med. Administration (IVP and IVPB), Blood Transfusions, NG Tube insertions, and chest tube care. Am I the only one who procrastinates by studying for something else? lol 🙈💁🏻‍♀️

I know it’s only Wednesday, but there’s just one giant block exam and an anatomy practical standing between me and my weekend. I’m not normally an advocate of “living for Friday/the weekend” but today, I am. Looking forward to a study-free weekend with family and friends, an anesthesiology symposium, and the arrival of my new iPhone! •• #weekendiloveyou #medstudent #exams

Interview tips - Part One, The Prep. I was on the residency selection committee at NYU as Chief Resident and interviewed fellowship applicants when I was at Boston Children’s.  I interview high schoolers for Duke and staff for my office.  Since I know it’s interview season now, I thought I would dole out things I look for when interviewing.  But, remember it really is about finding the best fit for the program and for yourself.
1️⃣ Dress appropriately - this one really is a no brainer, but I have to start with it. You want the interviewers to focus on you and not what you’re wearing.  Wear a suit.  And even though you all know I love my 4.5 inch heels, don’t wear them to an interview.  You’ll be touring the hospital/school and you want to be able to keep up.

2️⃣ Know your resume - Know absolutely every single thing you list on your application.  In detail.  Without exception and extensively.  If you listed it on there, you should be able to discuss even tangential topics related to it.

3️⃣Don’t exaggerate on your application or during your interview - You’d be surprised at how many applicants fold when I ask a follow up question to their volunteer experience. “Oh, well, it says 2 years there, but I really only went twice during that period”. Not good. It will get found out.

4️⃣Be confident - good eye contact, firm hand shake, sit straight.  This is your chance to show you’re a real person, someone that they want to work alongside, who demonstrates the empathy and focus required for medicine. 
5️⃣Do your research - learn about the med school or program to which you’re applying.  Remember it is all about the right fit.  Nothing tells me that an applicant is not interested than asking questions about the hospital/program structure the answers of which are readily available on the website.  Guaranteed they will ask “Why are you interested in XXX”. So, do your homework and be able to explain why you’re a good match for them.  Also, prepare a few thoughtful questions for each program/school, because they will always ask “Any questions?”

Part two coming soon. Was this helpful? Let me know what you are most concerned about during your interview season. #eras

Typically when hearing the term Liposuction one tends to think of obesity... that is not always the case! Liposuction is the medical term for fat removal. In order to get Lipo, a patient should be within 30% of their ideal body weight. Just check out this patient’s incredible results!

Drumroll please 🥁 for today’s #WhatWorksWednesdays special: “Being a physician can be stressful because the hours are long and honestly there isn't a lot of gratification at least in the short term- patients come and go and sometimes it doesn't feel like you've helped them. But in terms of managing that stress I find it most helpful to talk with my co-residents and just communicate our thoughts and feelings- positive or negative about what goes on! A lot of times we can laugh about things and that immensely helps the stress levels go down. So, working well with my team is how I manage stress. Talk to your co-residents, medical students, even attendings! It helps a lot!” - @yasmin__md

Day 2 of pediatrics, going for the tropical vibe in hopes it might stave off flu season but evidently this dress has no mojo- there have already been at least 2 kiddos positive for influenza A and reports of more at other offices. 😷🤒 Unfortunately, North Carolina doesn't start reporting until October 1. ~
So show me your stick! Let's see pics of your vaccine.

Though it seemed like a helpful intervention, #psychological debriefing has yet to show improvement in incidence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Further studies need to be done to continue to confirm what is helpful or for an adjustment to the process to be helpful. PTSD can start well after the traumatic incident or immediately afterwards. Talk to your #doctor if you or a loved one may be #suffering from #PTSD. FYI this is different from #trauma Based #CBT a type of #talktherapy that is effective. #posttraumaticstressdisorder #psychiatrist #evidencebased #traumarecovery #traumainformed #traumasurvivor #behavioralhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthishealth #womeninmedicine #somedocs

Upon request, I know a lot of people are preparing for nursing school interviews so I wanted to do a post on how to ace your interview. I wrote out a list of five things that seemed to be the most important in helping me get accepted to nursing school. 
1. Avoid the cliché answers! When they ask why you chose nursing they want to know your reasons, experiences, your story to why you picked nursing.
2. Talk about how you organize your schedule. Nursing school gets busy between school, clinical and often working as a nurse tech in a hospital for experience. Emphasize how you organize your day!
3. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses are crucial for any interview. When discussing a weakness always acknowledge that you have weaknesses but describe a plan on how you’re improving it.
4. This question seems to be really hard for most people to answer. My advice: highlight the most important parts of your life and give them something interesting about you like a fun fact. 
5. Be yourself! They want to know you better and that’s why they’re interviewing you. 
Last tip: if you can schedule a mock interview do it! I did a mock interview before my nursing school interview and it helped tremendously. Message me if you need more help with your interview!! 😊 .

When asked to submit a feature for #WIM month, I was initially thrilled. I am passionate about medicine and inspired by women supporting women. However, as I started answering the prompt, one question kept coming to mind. Who am I to be featured? The truth is that I spent three years after undergrad talking myself out of going to medical school. I questioned whether I was enough and if I really could have it all: family, health, career. These doubts are still with me today. I am only an OMS II. While I have specialties of interest, what if I don’t do well enough on my boards to pursue any of those specialties? Oh and not to mention the only fun fact that I could think of about myself was that I love green juice. Eventually I realized these are the exact reasons that I should share my story! As women we have to stop telling ourselves the reasons why we aren’t good enough and rewrite the story to remind ourselves why we are! In medicine and in life I truly believe that we go further together. That’s what being a female in medicine signifies for me: empowering myself and those around me to become the best snd happiest versions of ourselves. Who are we not to be featured? No story is too small and every story matters. You never know who you may be inspiring!

od teraz zamiast prenumeraty Vogue... 😂

a tak na serio - jako członek Okręgowej Izby Lekarskiej otrzymuję takie oto magazyny - Panaceum z regionalnej Izby oraz Gazetę Lekarską z ogólnopolskiej. znajdują się tam wszelkie aktualności dotyczące naszej profesji, informacje o różnych wydarzeniach, problemach, sukcesach. sporo artykułów, niektóre lekko humorystyczne, inne już niestety mniej. 
wczoraj na gali wręczenia PWZ dużo mówiono o Integracji zawodowej. że wszyscy tworzymy jeden wielki żywy organizm - brać lekarską. przyznam szczerze, że bardzo mi się to podoba, takie zjednoczenie zawodowe.

w Waszych profesjach też coś takiego funkcjonuje? czujecie jakąś integrację z kolegami po fachu? a może jesteście zapisani do związku zawodowego? 😉

🌮 BUFFALO ROASTED SWEET P AND ZUCCH TACOS 🌮 
I realized I have created a #tacotuesday battle royale directly after the #toasttuesday battle royale. Crispy buffalo sweet potato or spicy roasted juicy buffalo zucchini, meets their friends roasted serrano pepper, avocado, cilantro, goat cheese, and baby arugula. WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER ?!
🌱
Pro tip for those low on time and trying to eat something good: is to throw veggies in the oven like these delicious ones while you’re doing other things that you have probably been putting off (which for me included eating a copious amount of goat cheese and brown rice chips and doing two loads of laundry). THEN when the chores are done the ultimate reward of beautiful crispy juicy roasted veggies awaits 🍠 minimal prep!!
🌱
🌿
Recipe; preheat oven to 375, cut 3 sweet potato into cubes (didn’t even peel em), spread out on baking pan w olive oil drizzle and buffalo sauce (peep the one I bought at Whole Foods in my story w no sugar or artificial ingredients), mix and spread out. 🍠 
Cube two zucchini and chop four serrano peppers, spread out on another pan w olive oil, buffalo sauce and garlic powder, mix and spread out. 🥒
Bake for 40 mins, flip once throughout. 🌮 
Add on warm tortillas with as many peppers for as much spice as you like, with goat cheese (pref sale goat cheese like I bought yesterday lolol), sliced avocado, baby arugula, and cilantro. 🌮 makes 6-8 large tacos!

THEN when the chores are done the ultimate reward of beautiful crispy juicy roasted veggies awaits 🍠 minimal prep!! 🌱 🌿 Recipe; preheat oven to 375, cut 3 sweet potato into cubes (didn’t even peel em), spread out on baking pan w olive oil drizzle and buffalo sauce (peep the one I bought at Whole Foods in my story w no sugar or artificial ingredients), mix and spread out. 🍠 Cube two zucchini and chop four serrano peppers, spread out on another pan w olive oil, buffalo sauce and garlic powder, mix and spread out. 🥒 Bake for 40 mins, flip once throughout. 🌮 Add on warm tortillas with as many peppers for as much spice as you like, with goat cheese (pref sale goat cheese like I bought yesterday lolol), sliced avocado, baby arugula, and cilantro. 🌮 makes 6-8 large tacos!

“When you see this picture you see me smiling as bright as day light. But what if I were to tell you I sometimes come to work upset or angry you wouldn’t see it. I am crying inside, but I’m smiling on the outside. We nurses can have bad days too.yes I guilty of this.”
:
Patient,” How are you today nurse”
:
:
Me,”I’m doing great! We’re going to have a good day today.”
:
It’s amazing how we as health care workers especially nurses can mask our emotions in order to show our patients that we smile everyday for them. We put our own problems aside and come ready to make our patients day the best day of their lives yet ours could be a mess. I think this makes us more human than any other profession because we know hurt and we show compassion to others even if we face many obstacles. :
:
Thank you to all the health care workers out there who come to work with a smile on their face. We know you could be having a bad day, and here you are smiling. Even if it’s for 4 hours to 12 hours, you just made that patients day.

أنت حديثي المفضل، ابتسامتي المستمرة، و حبي الأبدي
You are my favorite speech, continuous smile, and endless love

“Hi everyone! My name is Sam Zavada, PA-S1. I’ve just started my second semester of PA school; using the word ‘overwhelmed’ to describe my state of mind is quite the understatement 🤗
—
My mom was an instructor for a surgical-technologist program when I was a toddler. So of course, our garage was full of surgical equipment and random medical supplies that she would use to teach her students! I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have that kind of exposure to medicine at such a young age. Ever since those days, I’ve always known I would end up with a career in medicine.
—
Now that I’ve finally made it this far into PA school, I’m realizing how important it is to remind myself WHY I chose to take the road less traveled. I want to save lives. I want to be there for patients when they’re at their worst. I want a career in medicine, no matter how bumpy the road is on the way there!🙌🏼
—
Remind yourself of your why, when you’re at home studying when everyone and their mother is out relaxing on the beach. Remind yourself why you’re doing this when you’re missing out on your family reunion. Remind yourself WHY when all hope seems lost. You have it in you! Keep going!😊”

What do you do on your days off? I think I am finally starting to learn the importance of what some people call “Self-Care”, which is sometimes hard to come by as a mom, wife, and business owner. I’d like to think I’m not alone here; I talk to & connect with so many patients who are giving so much of themselves to others but not leaving any time to care for them self. I came across this podcast where the guest talked about focusing on work-life satisfaction instead of work-life balance. There will be seasons when work will be heavier or, maybe its kids or relationships, but the key is to find satisfaction in those areas and not necessarily balance. Identifying our own pockets of time to take care of ourselves is essential to being better moms, wives, friends, employees and employers. So, maybe it’s a day off or those fringe hours before work, or even after the kids go to bed, but give yourself permission to read a book, exercise or whatever satisfies your soul. #selfcare #taketimeforyou

Progress Clinical Skills Examinations (PCSE) are done with woohoo — 
So what is PCSE? PCSE uses standardized patients (SPs) to assess students on their “communication skills, data gathering, clinical reasoning, safety behaviors and the application of necessary science to patient care.” — 
My experience with the first round of PCSE — it was definitely a humbling experience. I realized how much I don’t know so that gives me more motivation to study. I can’t say it was all bad, I actually was surprised about what I did know just from my clinical research, chemistry classes, and family members. — 
There were 8 stations and I can’t deny, it was very fun being able to play “doctor”. (We are required to introduce ourselves as who we are — medical students, to be transparent with our patients.) By station 4, I was hungry so really wished they let us bring snacks in. — 
Can’t wait for the next round of PCSE just to be able to see if my clinical knowledge increases once the clinical portion of the Early Clinical Experience starts.
