I am currently in Houston, Texas for an entire month for the purpose of rotating with the cardiovascular anesthesiologists at The Methodist Hospital. It is an interesting clinical setting to be in, as Methodist is where the surgeon Michael De Bakey pioneered many techniques including the carotid endarterectomy and heart transplantation. Thus far my days at work have been busy and rewarding. I also have been granted an unexpected amount of free time, what with arriving just before Easter and the hospital giving us Good Friday off. I was on-call over the weekend, so to remain in compliance with duty hour regulations, I was granted Easter Monday off as well!
I am really enjoying the city of Houston and all its greenery.
