Hey Mom, Look What I Can Do!

On Wednesday in my Practice of Medicine class we learned how to:
  • Draw blood
  • Give a PPD (TB shot)
  • Give a shot into the muscle (IM injection)
  • Measure blood pressure
  • Measure glucose levels

I feel so doctorly after learning all of these, I love it! I practiced on my fellow med students, and in turn they practiced on me. It wasn't too bad at all, besides the fact that getting an injection of sterile water into the skin really stings. Please don't ever do it.

Limited time offer: Free blood pressure screenings for life to the first person to buy me my very own sphygmomanometer.
