Ob/Gyn – 今までの話

March 26, 2011

Checking in 2/3rds of the way through my Ob/Gyn rotation wasn’t how I’d planned to chronicle it but time has really flown by me in the past month. It started out with a harrowing adventure down the atlantic coast that my (dad’s) heretofore trusty Volvo* wasn’t able to complete but after that initial excitement, things have settled into a very comfortable routine. I’m assigned to Dr. P, a sometimes-intimidating yet very personable ob/gyn originally from Cuba. In addition to his private practice, he is also affiliated with Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah, so I’ve been exposed to ob/gyn in both the office and hospital settings. There are also weekly ob/gyn lectures at the Center for Haitian Studies’ medical clinic, most of which have been given by the delightful Dr. C, who makes even the Kreb cycle seem magical. While I haven’t had the opportunity to actually deliver any babies myself, I’ve seen over a dozen deliveries (and got to scrub in on two c-sections), a few D&Cs, probably a hundred pap smears and even a circumcision! One of my classmates mentioned that ob/gyn in Miami was awesome and based on the past month, I must concur with his assessment. It has been pretty cool.**
