Medical School Retreat

26 Sep

We just got back from our weekend retreat in the mountains with J’s medical school. Every year the school clears the schedule so the entire school can all go on a retreat together. Of course, not everyone comes, but a good majority make it up for some part. It is always so much fun. I can’t believe this will be our last year going 😦 How can 4 years go by so slowly and yet so quickly? I really just do not know. Anyway… what does one do on a medical school retreat? Well talk medicine of course! lol Well, at least that was what we did when we were first and second years. This year however, it was all about interviews and places we would like to live (like we have any say in the matter!)

Each year a talent show is put on. You know, the ones where people get up and show off their lack of talent? Well this talent show was ACTUALLY good! We had comedy acts that were funny, people playing instruments who were amazing and singers who could sing! wow! imagine that! But my favorite this year was done by 3 girls from my Bible study. The wives went up and did a skit about what it’s like being married to a first year medical student. Can I just say that I was laughing so hard I was crying! Some of the things are just so true! Like studying while eating dinner together. Like being “initiated into the fraternity of victims of physical diagnosis” (aka you are now the most convenient person to act like your husbands personal patient for his studying purposes). Does anyone else remember the retina exam!?!? My eyes hurt so bad from that stupid light! HA! They did a great job and had everyone laughing! I have a video but am trying to learn how to post it on here. So until then you can just imagine it 🙂

Anyway, we had a great time and got to spend time with some of our closest friends who we have gone through medical school with! Sad that this was our last time, but looking forward to what is still to come!

    That sounds like so much fun! How nice that your med school did that for everyone – I wish my husband’s program had had something like that!
