Playing PA


Today was my first physical exam on a real patient. It was really fun to play PA. It also took longer than any physical I am sure any of you have ever had. To do it properly, it takes 45 minutes. This is without interviewing the patient- only examining. The interview is theoretically supposed to take another 30 minutes. Whew!

You are going to be a great PA! I'm jealous you get to work on real patients so soon. We had to wait FOREVER! Are you having fun yet?

Hey Erika!
I made a blog for me and Dathan today. It's not really much of a blog yet though. I'm just gonna wait until we get internet so we can put pictures up!
