Even though I'm starting my second year of medical school on Thursday, I still made my way to the anatomy labs this evening. The lab was eerily familiar, the scent of formaldehyde, the snap of the purple gloves, the search for nerves in the midst of fascia....It all came back to me so fast! Tomorrow is my first day teaching the first year medical students anatomy, and after doing the TA dissection today, I'm feeling confident, and really excited to share the experience with them. It's a win-win-win for me. I get to learn anatomy again, get paid, AND get an iPad! Abs and I have been playing on the iPad all night, it's cool in some ways, annoying in others. I wish Apple had gone the extra mile and made a killer technology that included phone, video, and file storage in addition to what the iPad offers.
Wish me luck for my first day of teaching!
