Finally..... Residency graduation

Last night was a special night for my co-residents and I as we celebrated the end of our residency. Finally, we are done with training.

Although I have less than 6 months left of training {technically}, I still got to celebrate with my class. There were lots of tears shed last night, and speeches of thanks and well wishes.

It is definitely a long road for us resident doctors. There's 4 more years of schooling after college. And in my case 5 years of training until I become board eligible in child neurology.

My mom kept bugging me when I will get a job.... She is used to me being in school and training that the thought of graduation finally here is almost unbelievable. "What if she doesn't pass?" She asked my program director. {what?! Mom?! Give me some credit here}

It was a lovely dinner and evening. And you bet I will be even more sentimental when I'm officially technically done with residency with an even mushi-er blog entry early next year.

Thanks to my husband for being with me through the years in med school and residency. As I always tell him, the MD degree and the residency training is as much his accomplishment as mine. I would not have made it through the years without his love and support. This is an awesome Father's Day gift for him too.

  2. Congrats a million! What an incredible day :) I love how you said that your M.D. degree is as much your husband's accomplishment as yours; I thank God every day that Stephen has been with me through this experience; I don't know how I would do it without him.

    Also, your dress is adorable.

  3. Congrats and you look so great!!!!

  4. Wow! Congratulations Dear! Med school is a difficult journey, especially the residency part. All those patients and cases and sleepless nights are now definitely worth it. I hope that you're getting the hang of everything, of course being a mommy and a doctor as well. You are one great woman! Keep it up! :D
