Day 2, so much to take in

In all honestly this post maybe not be helpful or relevant to anyone but me. I am happy, tired, overwhelmed and finding myself full of ideas and self doubt all at the same time. I find all these other residents around me to be so impressive and I see their passion. I share their passion, I think, but I also feel very small.

I wanted this post to be positive and not be self absorbed but , I feel like I’m gaining so much knowledge and I do not have the skills I need to put this knowledge to use. My hope is that I continue to listen and learn and stay encouraged.

Having said all that I’m so glad to be around such beautiful and great minds.

Ignorance is bliss-no kidding!

Learning all these exciting movements and initiatives around patient safety is fascinating.  But, more than that for me it is rocking my world. I’m not talking about the exciting-lighting-the-fire-in-me rocking.  I mean it is all but literally tearing apart my idea of what my role should be in medicine. I cannot, after this camp, continue to act as if I do not or cannot play a role in making medicine more about the patient. I cannot unhear all the resources, the mentors and the already pioneered programs that have started making a difference.  I came on this trip with such ignorance (& bliss), I refuse to leave the same way.
