Night Shifts

Well, I’m gonna be here in Green Bay for a little while longer, probably until Thanksgiving. So far, I’ve been working mostly night shifts, bringing back vivid memories of ‘night float’ during residency. Overall, I’m really enjoying it. Everyone’s really nice and welcoming. It’s quite a change from residency when you’re the low man on the totem pole. The patient population is more primary care oriented. I’ve seen one transplant patient so far, wheras I used to see almost one-a-day in residency. I couldn’t think of a better way to transition from residency into real-life…
