Dr. B's Reflections on Stanford Med

A friend of mine from medical school posted this on Facebook. Thought I'd share his amazing experiences at Stanford Med because you're probably sick of hearing about mine. By the way, he matched at Hopkins in Neurosurgery. Can you say "baller"?

Last day of med school! Here are some pearls from the past few years:
- Delivered 13 new bundles of joy.
- Flew in a jet with the cardiothoracic surgery team to harvest a heart. Then scrubbed in on the transplant.
- Performed CPR for 9 minutes on a patient in cardiac arrest. Brought him back. He walked out of the ICU 5 months later.
- 24/7 neurotrauma call x 7 straight days at SF General, 55 nights in hospital over 90 days of neurosurgery rotations. Learned that there are no limitations.
- Uganda. And soon, China.
- Made sure a patient made it to his 100th birthday. He rewarded me with a bottle of two buck chuck.

  4. There are some people who ask for getting online writing services for their papers. I have a good tip for them to go online for getting professional essay service at this website and complete your term papers according to your expectations.

  5. On the last day of medical school, your friend has great time as he get 13 pearls. It is the utmost desire of every students to make their ending day special by sharing fun, joys and entertainment with others. Everyone is likely to shed tears because they are going to be separated from one roof of learning and this post remind me my college days. I want to suggest students to get australian writing services for completing all their documents without grammar and spelling mistakes.
