Medical School Blog Gives Students “Dose of Reality

sly more difficult and rewarding, and more exciting and exhausting, than I would have ever imagined.”

Janani Krishnaswasmi also is a third-year medical student and blogger. She was immersed in a career in investment banking when she realized her true passion lay in medicine. Krishnaswasmi says there is no simple way to describe what it’s like to be a medical student, and admits it’s hard to fathom how she will ever absorb all the information she needs to learn.

“It’s a lot of work, stress and pressure, but this year is definitely the best year of medical school,” she says. Her current rotation in the hospital, begins at 5:30 a.m. On a typical day, Krishnaswasmi visits with her patients to make sure they are doing well. Afterward, the whole team, which consists of an attending physician, residents and interns, gets together as a group and she presents her findings. For the rest of the day, she helps the interns and residents with patients, getting home anytime between 6:30 and 10 p.m.

“It’s a transformation, being in medical school. It allows you to be good at studying and memorizing, but it also allows you to be more human, to really develop the compassion and sensitivity to deal with people,” she says. Krishnaswasmi got involved with blogging because she loves to write. She admits it also lets her blow off some steam. “And I think the blog is a really great resource for prospective medical students. The bloggers’ experiences vary, but I think that’s good, and I enjoy being a part of it.”

And how does the life of a doctor-in-training stack up to the television shows?

Bryner thinks the medical shows are not terribly accurate. “There’s a little bit of truth to them, but a lot is made up. In real life, there’s a lot of studying, reading and talking on the telephone, but the shows do capture some of the more dramatic moments, the ones that make you happy to be involved in medicie.”
