Observations from my fortnight away
  • Camp is still Camp and I still feel very much at home there.
  • I loved my four summers as a counselor, but I’m also excited for my transition onto the medical staff. The responsibilities of being a counselor have not changed drastically, so my experience is still valuable and will help me from the other side.
  • I met some really great medical students, including a few MS2s from my school.
  • I learned how to draw blood, how to place sutures to close a wound, and how to make and wrap a splint.
  • I learned how to take a patient’s history, perform a physical exam, make an assessment, and recommend a plan. We were tested on these skills in two mock patient exams in which we met with a standardized patient who presented a case typical for Camp. After performing our interview and examination, we presented our report to our attending senior, who then evaluated our entire performance. This was the first time I had ever done this (as it turns out, many of the rising MS2’s did not have much training in their first year, either, so we were largely in the same boat). I’m really proud of how I did. I was complemented on my history-taking in both cases. I wasn’t spot-on for the diagnosis in my first case, but I tightened things up for my second case. I was not perfect, but it was my very first time, I learned a lot, and I expect to learn a lot more. I’m also proud that I remembered so many symptoms/cases/terminology after my first true exposure to this world.
  • I’m glad I can still draw up shots efficiently. I’m also glad I tested standardized campers correctly on the first try during the night rounds practical (top and bottom bunk~).
  • I work well under pressure. I was able to coordinate the team during our seizure practical because of previous experiences. I also juggled insulin dosing + phone calls from cabins and parents during opening day well.
  • I really liked the fast-pace of pre-lunch opening day— it was a fun buzz.
  • I’m glad I feel so comfortable in this environment.
  • Almost 20 of my former campers are serving as counselors this year. I’m proud of them for reasons specific to each person, but as a whole, I’m also proud that they wanted to return and give of themselves so younger campers could have a great experience.
  • I loved hearing why returning staff returned. I was honored to share my reasons. I’m glad I felt so moved that night.
  • We have a great staff this summer.
  • There were three specific breakthrough moments during orientation and I think they were key for my growth. You can ask me about it. I’m glad I experienced it.
  • I had a fantastic partner during check-in physical exams.
  • It was a treat to check-in some former campers and parents who remembered me from my counselor days.
  • I am more connected to technology in 2014 than I was from 2005-2008, but it was pretty easy for me to disconnect and be effectively offline for the past two weeks.
  • On the flip side, I know it is also easy for me to fall out of communication with people outside of a given environment when I’m busy. I will try to be better.
  • I’m so ready to return for my three-week stint— it’s just a few weeks away.
  • Thank you for this summer.
