    The whole situation here is goofy. Not sure how it works elsewhere?

    Resident with back-up attending handles medicine and psych floor consults/issues. Psychologists can handle ED and can admit from there to psych floor or detox unit, we just have to call local university hospital EPS (also an on-call resident from the med school) for medical clearance and orders...unless ED doc does direct admit or overrules us, which they never do. Its weird. But they pay us overtime for this.

    You yuppy. Gonna go out and play some tennis at the club while you're at it and drink some Pimm's Cup in the clubhouse? ;)

    We're heading out camping with some friends. Not real camping, more of the, let's rent some cabins at a campsite by the bay so we can drink by a fire kind of camping.

    I have a king size mattress, a fully stocked bar in the basement, and a decent suburban view of the landscape. Paying money to be homeless for a night seems nonsensical. I will get drunk and watch Netflix...thank you!

    Just call me Gaffigan.

    Sadly, everything but the tennis is pretty spot on (orthopedic problem with dominant wrist). If you want money, you gotta be where it is.

    Stuck out of town this weekend. Netflix, hotel bar, hotel gym is the plan.

    Are you talking about the draft? The more they stretch that out and elongate the weekend, the less inclined I am to watch any of it. I'll just wait for the recaps to come out Sunday or Monday. I can only stand so much of Mike Mayock or Mel Kiper.

    All report writing...all day! I prefer this actually, though the last couple of months I've squeezed in out-pts, which really breaks up my writing flow.

    I might meet some friends out for a drink after work, but I suspect it will be a mess later tonight bc of Cinco de Mayo.

    Saturday was supposed to an early round of golf, but the weather isn't cooperating, so I'll probably just hit some range balls. My country club throws a great Derby party, so that will be my afternoon and evening.

    Sunday is a day of rest and possibly Guardians V2 w some friends.

    Passed the EPPP yesterday after 2-3 weeks of hardcore studying every day after work. Date night with the wife tonight to make up for the fact that she has tolerated me basically ignoring her that entire time.

    I sincerely regret studying as much as I did. So outrageously far above the cutoff I feel like I completely wasted my time, though I guess its better than the alternative. Still...that time could have been spent on papers, grants or living life.

    I am in month 5 of a never ending credentialing process. Sometimes I wonder if this job is even real or if I will ever have a start date. Each month, there's a new form that needs to be signed. Siiiiiiiiiigh. I don't understand why this process is taking forever. This job better be the best thing since Americone Dream.

    Moderately productive day so far. No big plans other than finally enjoying the first sunny weekend in almost a month.

    My credentialing process took about 3 months; 5 would be exceedingly aggravating.

    Agreed, assuming much of the material is refresher. I want to say I started studying a month ahead of time, although not as steadily as I'd have liked, so the final week involved some cramming. Although unlike the EPPP, I didn't mind the studying, and wouldn't have minded "over-studying," as it was directly beneficial to my clinical practice.

    I was going to take a road trip to watch some baseball, but I don't want to put the wear and tear on my car (8-9hr each way). Probably play some golf. Maybe hit the gun range.

    Same- I took it last week and wish I had those weekends back-spent the majority of every weekend for 2 months and regret over studying- I have some making up to do with my unbelievably patient husband. Unfortunately that will have to wait- at a conference this week and swamped st work next week. But then taking a week to hike in Utah so hopefully that will make up for it! Congrats on having it behind you- feels good, yeah?
