Today, I got to rotate in the Dermatology room with the attending and her residents. It was a very new experience for me, but it was so cool! I was able to put a lot of the knowledge I just gained from studying Dermatology this summer to good use. The residents taught me to do injections, and I got to inject local anesthetic into a patient before we removed a small tumor from her abdomen and another young patient before removing a neurofibroma from her face. I was able to see first hand many cases of fungal infections on the skin, a few cases of basal cell carcinoma on the face, and a case of chicken pox. It was such a cool day of getting to turn my “book knowledge” into real life experiences. I’m excited for what is to come in the next clinic days!
