Greetings from the North Land
Woohoo-- First blog entry!
Here in International Falls, I may not be as far north as Kirsten is, but I can see Canada from my house. That means that in addition to being a PD3, I am also an expert at foreign relations. I was worried that there wouldn't be enough to see at the Falls Memorial Hospital which had about 4 admitted patients when I arrived on Monday morning, but I needn't have been. I've already learned what Fournier's Gangrene is, researched possible reasons for a phenytoin toxicity, and investigated how allopurinol may precipitate further gout attacks. Whew!
The best reason to be up here, besides all the wonderful nature fun that occurs, is that my preceptor is fantastic-- he's this year's MSHP Pharmacist of the Year! And to think all this time we've been letting NDSU students (who are very nice people by the way) take all his rotation spots. . .
