Hi Readers! Welcome!
First things first — introductions.
My name is Lauren and I am a first year pharmacy student, studying in Virginia. I love Disney World, cheetah print, and anything related to the Royal Family. I’m a Pinterest junkie and a chicken nugget addict.
My name is Theresa and I’m a first year med student in New Jersey. I love sports and anything Harry Potter. I am a book hoarder (I buy books faster than I can read them) and a foodie (although not one of those people who instagram’s every meal they eat).
So what is the point of this blog?
We want to share with you what it’s really like being a professional student — no details will be spared. Get ready for the good, the bad, and the absolute worst.
You can read all of the books in the world and talk to people already in health care about what it’s like to be in professional school, but you really don’t know what you’re getting into until you get there. We are both currently nearing the end of our first semesters and we have learned quite a bit. We want to share with you all some things that we wish we knew going into school so you’ll be as prepared as you can be for the daunting challenge that is health professionals school.
But this blog isn’t all about brutal honesty. We want to share with you the valuable lessons that we are learning in school, keep everyone up to date on the ever-changing world of healthcare, give our first hand advice, and most importantly, reveal how to stay sane through it all.
