    Recently finished MS1ers <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> what are you guys doing for the summer?

    I'm going to work in an immunology lab for most of the summer and I'm planning for a week long trip to Paris. I'm not sure I'd have the time or the resources but I'd love to take a cross country drive and see the west coast. Back to studying... only 48 more hours <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    I'm a staff member for the premedical enrichment program we have here (for college students who think they want to go to med school... they take classes, shadow docs, etc). I'm also going to Italy for 10 days with my boyfriend. I plan to have lots of fun this summer. :) Only one week left!!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Bench research at the cancer hospital on campus. 8 fun weeks of running assays on angiogenic peptides. Woo hoo.

    I'll be working on two research projects to try to pay for my honeymoon. The first one deals with seat-belt use in pregnant women (mainly patient interviews and some data analysis I believe) and the second one has to do with PDA use in the OR (I'll be working with a trauma surgeon who wants to see how they could get more out of the PDA's). They should both be pretty fun since I won't be stuck in a lab. The hours shouldn't be too horrible either.

    I was thinking about Italy too, but the powers that be decided on Paris.... not that I'm complaining :D . Hopefully I passed histology though...it'd screw things up pretty badly if I didn't.

  7. absolutely nothing! I found out about 2 weeks ago that I passed gross anatomy (barely, but P=M.D.) :D , came home to Baltimore, went away for a week with my family, and came back a few days ago. I hope to catch up with my old college and grad school friends and take a few trips (unfortunately can't afford Europe with the loans I am taking out).

    Staying home and taking care of my newborn son, whew! He was born 3 weeks before the end of the semester and I just today took my last make-up exam. What a relief! Now if only I could get some sleep...

    Going to school. My school is year round. Yes, I am very jealous of all of the rest of you.

    9 weeks in japan via a funded 'cultural exchange' internship between St. Luke's Roosevelt (NYC) and St. Luke's International Hospital (Tokyo). Weekdays in the OR, mini-rotations through different departments, attending conferences (many in English), and doing mini-research projects with a breast surgeon (currently comparing familial breast/colon cancer incidence between Japan and the U.S.) The residents and docs here are the friendliest in the world, and I get to give a couple of presentations about U.S. medical education and September 11. Weekends spent hitting sights in and around Tokyo, putting my new digital camera to work (the gadgets and technology here make me drool), eating great sushi/tempura, hanging out with the residents, etc. And of course there's World Cup fever...

    Only been here a week and already one of my best summers ever. Incoming students, take heed -- scatter to the winds after your first year, don't get stuck in a lab at home unless it's really what you want.
