internship year

anonymous asked:

what extracuricular activities did u do

I did research on Crohn’s disease for a year long internship at the children’s hospital of los angeles, im president of my school, went to a fellowship for poc/womxn in computer science and got to go to a lot of big company headquarters, founded my own non-profit to motivate young POC to pursue STEM, and other school stuff like environmental clubs, volunteering, etc.!!


so i went back and found the posts i made last december and the year before with my art from those years!! i love looking back at where i started at the beginning of 2014 with my first tablet. i can’t believe how far i’ve come; it’s rlly proof that if you keep at if you’ll go far ~~~~

So, since I am now a qualified veterinarian and all, I thought I better do a little blog makeover.

As my time as a student has now come to an end and my next chapter as a veterinarian is about to begin, my dear old little blog will now be known as “Why I am a Veterinarian”.

I hope you all continue to follow me on my journey as a new grad vet. In 2017, I will be commencing work as a veterinary intern at a specialist hospital somewhere in Australia. It is a one year rotating internship and I begin in emergency! I will be sure to keep you all posted on my transition from vet student to new grad vet.

I know I have a million and one messages to reply to in my inbox and messages, I promise I am slowly working through them all! Thanks for following me on my 6 year long journey, I couldn’t have done it without you all x

Summary:  Holland Morris started her first year medical internship with lots of plans, none of which she can manage to follow through with. She keeps making mistakes at work, and if her professional life is in shambles, then her love life is in even worse condition. Ironically, there’s only one place where everything seems to go right: the emergency room.

Commonly Asked Questions About Vet School

-> “How long is vet school?” 

Depending on the country, vet school can be 4-6 years long. In the US, vet school is 4 years long (after 3-4 years of college to get your pre-req classes done). If you want to specialize (become a cardiologist, boarded surgeon, dermatologist, etc), then you will need at least a 1 year internship and 3+ years of residency after vet school to become a boarded specialist. 

-> “How many people are in a vet school class?”

It depends on the school and country, but here in the US, you will have anywhere from 55-160 classmates (~110 is average). 

-> “Can I have a job during vet school?”

It depends on you, but the general consensus is that a full time job is out of the question, especially during your clinical years. However, quite a number of my classmates worked 2-8 hours a week at the hospital or other locations, so if you really wanted a small pick-me-up job it wouldn’t be impossible. Most suggest to wait until after first semester is over to make sure you get well adjusted to the academic rigor of vet school first.

-> What is the debt I will be looking at for vet school?”

Too much! If you are in the US, you are looking at (on average) ~$150,000-$200,000 if you are in an in-state school, and ~$220,000-$350,000 if you go to an out-of-state school.

-> “Why is vet school so difficult?”

It isn’t that vet school concepts are that complex (some are), but it’s the volume of information that will threaten to drown your poor soul. Imagine your hardest science/bio class in college that took of your time and energy to get a good grade in. Now take 5-8 of those classes at the same time and you are in vet school.

-> “What kind of classes are offered in vet school? Can you take them when you want like in college?

Everything that will help you become a doctor! Physiology, anatomy, histology, epidemiology, parasitology, immunology, nutrition, pathology, pharmacology, radiology, medicine, surgery, etc. Then your final year (or years in some schools) will be clinical rotations (ophthalmology, small animal surgery, community practice, equine medicine, etc) to apply your knowledge. Classes and labs are generally 8 am-5 pm (some variants obviously), so it’s a lot like working a full time job!

Excluding a few electives, no, you can not take classes when you want because a lot of material builds on another. So for example everyone in your class will take physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, histology, and clinical skills together at generally the same time that is set up for the entire class.


Hope that answers a few questions you had about vet school, and if you have any more feel free to reblog and ask or shoot me an ask/PM!


Back in the day : #Wakfu (2008)

Holy molly, this is my first work as story artist during my internship at #Ankama, 7 years ago.

I was charged to do the animatic of an full webisode of #Tristepin.

The idea was to present his daily training with many traps.

He is so dumb that each time he does it, he forget it is a training and thinks there is a real lady to save.

I did the episode in 2 months of full pain but i was so happy to do this thinking it will be cleaned and painted.

Unfortunately, the webisode was never released … ;_; 



As I finished my summer internship very quickly this year, I decided to come back to my hobbies - reading, gaming and, of course, drawing and graphics design!

Here are some of my first works done in Corel Draw. I think of creating more of such med school-related graphics - a great way to connect all the different areas I’m interested in. And to appreciate our wonderful studyblr community! ₍ᐢ•ﻌ•ᐢ₎*・゚。


They’re the few, the proud, the extremely-likely-to-die. (Which Cecil somehow didn’t notice, until Maureen pointed it out…?) Hopefully you’ll survive a trip through our Top 10 Headcanons about NVCR Interns.

76) Only very experienced interns get to do broadcasts on their own. Cecil is the only one to ever survive that long.

76) Only interns mentioned by name on-air die. The Vague Yet Menacing Government Agency does not allow this information to be shared, but some interns still notice the trend and apply using fake names.

79) Even though the tablets down at City Hall have the name of the future voice of Night Vale carved into the stone, carvings that were created long before the owner of the name was even conceived, each citizen is required from ages 18 to 21 to spend one year in internship at the Night Vale community radio station. Some of course do not survive these trials, but for those who do, it looks great on a college application.

80) All the interns that appeared in the show improbably survived their supposed deaths, but they keep pretending they got killed because they know that’s the only way to quit their intern job. Otherwise, they’ll be stuck in an endless loop of almost dying and barely surviving. Intern Maureen is the only one who didn’t do that, partly because she didn’t want to make her family worried and partly because she wanted to tell Cecil how much his internship program sucks.

92) When a prophesied Voice of Night Vale becomes an intern at NVCR, they start existing as a fact of Night Vale from the beginning of time until the end of the universe. They are not aware of this, which can lead to strange memory problems. They also cannot be killed - the universe will go to great lengths to make sure they are not harmed, even deleting an entire third world war in the 80’s from existence. 

102) The bloodstone doors at NVCR didn’t always require you to bleed on them to get out. In fact, by a strange coincidence, they only started requiring this after Strexcorp bought the station. Interns can still get out without any blood loss at times. By another strange coincidence, this only seems to happen when there are no Strexcorp supervisors watching.

103) While working for the station is technically an unpaid internship, Cecil often pays the interns in bizarre philosophical fortune cookies.

106) Being an intern under Leonard was significantly less lethal then being an intern under Cecil.

113) You do not “apply for a job” as a Night Vale intern. A Night Vale local, between the ages of 15 and 23, just appears in the radio station wearing an intern shirt and holding an intern name tag right after the previous intern gets offed. Nobody knows how an intern gets chosen, except maybe Station Management - but nobody tried asking them for obvious reasons. The fact that fifteen years old Cecil apparently got the intern job by asking is yet another thing about the Cassette that confuses Cecil.

171) For every dead intern, there’s an alternative universe where Cecil died instead of them and they became the new Voice of Night Vale.

Could you explain how the fire and dope mvs fit into the story line and theories please? :o

I’ll do it in a few hours! I’m currently busy packing my stuff as I’m moving house.

edit: feel free to remind me in 5 or 6 hours. With all the stuff I’ve got to do I might forget about it ><

Ask a Therapist: Is it normal to worry I’ll screw up my field placement?

I’m a BSW student nearing the end of my degree, with my field internship in a year. I am more and more anxious about field, and I’m worry I’ll screw someone up and fail as a social worker. Is that feeling normal? Or have I misread my calling?

Yes. Absolutely 100% normal, and no, it doesn’t mean you’ve misread your calling. In fact, your worry probably implies even more strongly that this is your calling, as it is an indicator of valuing the lives and needs of your clients.

To be frank, I tell my new interns each year that they *will* screw it up, plenty of times, and that that is normal too. Your internship is an opportunity for you to make mistakes in a controlled setting with plenty of folks there to help clean up your messes. Mind you, this does not give you carte blanche permission to act a fool with no regards to the consequences. But it does mean you can use this time to stretch your edges, try new things, and get really really good at asking for help when you need it. As a supervisor, I don’t mind when my interns mess something up. But I do very much mind when they mess it up and don’t tell me about it. That drives me bananas.

Best of luck and skill next year!


It is said that learning happens when you are uncomfortable.  Comfort breeds complacency; pain leads to distraction.  But discomfort, that is the optimal place to learn.  You are forced to stretch your knowledge and pushed to learn new information to adapt.  You may find yourself rising to the occasion in situations you didn’t know you could handle, or gaining valuable insights during times that you fail.  In many ways this magical in-between is where medical education seeks to be.  This last month, which I spent as a new intern, has been uncomfortable.   

There is a ginormous chasm that exists between M4 responsibility and that of being an intern.  The irony is that the end of 4th year is often seen as a well-deserved break.  For months prior to intern year I traveled, saw friends and family, and avoided textbooks.  Then, July 1, I was thrown into the situation of having to be a real doctor, answering real questions, and putting in real orders.  There are plenty of people to support me - seniors, fellows, attendings - but the pressure exists nonetheless. 

It is hard to imagine that one month has passed.  In many ways it feels like much more time, and often if feels like much less.  Days on wards expand and contract based on workload. Once you get 6 admissions deep the morning starts to seem so far away, and you forget basic things like where you parked your car.  At the same time, weeks pass and suddenly you are on a new rotation wondering how the preceding days flew by.  The hospital has a reality that is all its own. 

Each day I am confronted by my lack of meaningful and useful knowledge, which is terrifying.  Cecil’s and Harrison’s sit ready to taunt me with all of the valuable information I will never remember.  And even when I do know something valuable, I am reminded that patients don’t read the textbooks.  Rarely do illnesses come one at a time, without confounding variables.

The point of all this is to say: I have never learned more about being a doctor than I have in the last 4 weeks.  My discomfort has forced me to become something more than a 4th year med student.  Each day I feel myself growing; a seedling that has finally found the light it will grow towards.  Make no mistake, right now I am a terrible doctor.  But I think I am starting to see the path that will make me a good one. 

I have survived a month of residency (survived being the key word) and I am so much better for it.  I am finally doing what I set out to do so many years ago: I am taking care of patients.  Each day they welcome me into their room, allow me to examine them, and trust me to help make decisions on their behalf.  I have never been more humbled or felt more honored.  The last 4 weeks have presented some of the hardest challenges and most uncomfortable experiences.  I am so lucky for that.
