I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

Now that it is mid-May, those of you who have applied to medical school this year have probably found out if you got in or not. 

So Congrats to those of you who did get in. For now you are probably still in the honeymoon stage. You may still be actively celebrating.


But pretty soon it’s going to hit you like a ton of bricks—holy crap I’m in freakin medical school.


So before you freak out, check out some posts I made for you about studying in medical school, paying for medical school, and having a life in medical school. Maybe it will ease your woes. 

But don’t think it’s all going to be gravy. You’ve worked hard to get to medical school, but trust me, it’s just beginning. 


And for those who didn’t get in this year, there’s advice for you too. Don’t give up. Work on your application and try again next year.
