Hope you’ve all been doing well, it’s been a while. Who would have known M3 year would be busy?
I’m currently on my psychiatry rotation. Unlike most rotations, mine is not located at the University of Michigan Hospital. Instead, I’m spending my days at various community mental health clinics around Washtenaw County. It has been incredibly interesting, and I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I’ve spent time in youth clinics, adult clinics in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor, and even the Washtenaw County jail. I like a lot of aspects of psych, but it took a lot out of me the first week. Hearing about the history and contributing factors behind someone’s mental illness were a lot to take in, especially when the patients are children. But it’s been getting less overwhelming as I get more used to it.
