I’m military so acronyms are my life!
For years I said “bum **** nowhere” ..... then I was corrected that Egypt is apparently worse than nowhere lol.
And I encourage you to maintain as many skill sets as you can early in your career, it will only keep doors open. The sweet spot for OB is finding a community hospital that does ~500 deliveries/yr. it’s just enough to do a few epidurals and c/s’s each week, maintain your comfort but not hate it. And those small community hospitals generally pay well and have the best doc lounges stocked with all you can eat!
I need to find this mythical hospital. Would love a doctors lounge that is filled like this
@2Fast2Des i think you're too used to the NE.
When I moved back to Texas, the first hospital I went to had a doctors lounge full of different kind of sodas, variety of sandwiches and snacks that you can grab at anytime. during lunch time they would serve us with a nice gourmet meal - things like filet, prime rib, niicely cooked chicken, etc. The partner tell me this was the scaled down version because of covid... I was AMAZED. pretty sure I ate better my first 6 months of private practice than I have at any other 6 months period of my life.
As i got more privileges at the other hospitals, I realized this was the standard. The economics behind it was easy: keep the doctors that bring in procedures happy, one procedure probably paid for a whole month worth of food.
I can't wait to see what non-covid food is gonna be like at these places.
