Yes, this is THE countdown! 33 shifts. Will keep you updated daily. After tomorrow, it will be 32 shifts, then 31 shifts, then…I have to wait a few more days to continue the countdown. How sweet it will be…

Has anybody ever NOT finished their residency without feelings of bitterness towards the institution of medical education? What a horrible way to learn. And a horrible way to feel. Thank god it will soon be finished with and I can recover my self respect. I hear the attendings talkng about how much it sucks to work five days in a row, or to work a twelve hour shift. It brings about little sympathy from me. Sure, someday, I’ll be able to make the same complaints and I won’t care one lick what the residents think about that. THat someday is only 33 shifts away…
