So you know you are losing your mind when…
… you are dreaming about medical school? Not just getting IN to medical school. Now THAT would be normal. No. I had a dream last night about being IN school. sitting in class, learning about the Achilles Tendon (probably because that is the next muscle I am going to highlight in my health blog). I was totally enjoying myself, seriously delighted to be in class.
Sigh. I don’t remember the last time I have wanted something this badly. what is it I want? an acceptance letter to the Chicago Medical School. This school is just soooo perfect for me.
A – I can get a degree with a distinction in research! This means I get to do my own research project! So essentially I get to continue my research career, while pursuing medicine, without having to tack on an additional 3-5 years to get a PhD.
B – CMS has a certificate in women’s health program. For just a few extra courses (or perhaps through careful selection of my electives) – I can get a certificate in women’s health. As someone who is EXTREMELY passionate about women’s health, how can this not be perfect for me?
C – We get to do all our rotations through a series of DIFFERENT hospitals. How cool is that? I love diversity and this really seems like the best atmosphere to pursue a medical education.
D – Rosalind Franklin University is entirely composed of graduate programs. This must facilitate great interprofessional discourse. How exciting to learn from experts from all the branches of science!
E – The fact that it is an entire graduate school and that there is a Hillel there, means that there is a graduate hillel! How is that not the coolest thing you have ever heard? great place for me to continue the graduate and young professional Rosh Chodesh group I started at Brown University
F – it is still in the Chicago area and the wonderful state of Illinois. I really love having so much family around. It is great to see so much of my aunts and uncles and cousins. Much more so than I used to. It’s a shame my brother is graduate Lake Forest College in May and leaving IL for NM. But I still really love this place.
G – sigh… I could just keep going.
I hate waiting for something I want so much. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
what crazy or unhealthy dreams have YOU had lately?
