Wayfaring MD

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!

I just applied to medical school and I thought that schools can't see where you applied to. From what I understand, they can see where you've been accepted after a certain date in the Spring and for sure by May 15th, the day we have to relinquish all but one hold. Or..did they see all the places I applied to already before making their interview and final decisions? That could give schoolsreason to NOT interview and accept. ie. they can think "oh she won't come all the way out here anyways..."

I have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE about this. None of this ever crossed my mind when I was applying (although I only applied to one school). The only answer I have is HAKUNA MATATA. Stop worrying about this stuff, seriously.

Anyone else got a good answer for this?
