This post is a little unexpected part of my journey and also a bit emotional. I have not been much on Instagram lately because I have been trying to recover from a broken clavicle. About a week ago, I was driving on the highway and I lost control of my car in the rain. It ended up rolling over about 3 times. Thankfully, I got away with just a non-displaced broken clavicle even though my car was totaled. It was a very traumatic experience but I am slowly getting better. I have just been focusing on healing, so that I am ready to start school physically and emotionally in a few weeks. I just wanted to say that I appreciated everyone who reached out to me, asked about my wellbeing, and offered help in many ways. You are much more than just my friends; you’re my family. I believe that true friends share not only each other’s happiness but also pain during hard times like this. I feel much stronger because of you. Thank you so much for all of your support and let’s hope for a speedy recovery.
REAL TALK ⬇️ __________ Life isn’t perfect. It’s so easy to compare our lives to other people’s on social media, I’m at fault for doing it, myself 🤦🏽‍♀️. Our summer is super relaxed, and so the recent time off has me has reflecting on a couple of things: 1. How grateful I am to have met such a wonderful, real group of healthcare peers on this medium, and 2. That life is full of ups and downs, and you just have to keep looking toward your goals, even when it seems impossible to keep moving forward. __________ Didactic year moves so fast, and all the emotions and responsibilities related to life outside of school pause until you have a moment to breathe. That moment for me is now, this summer. Along the way, I realized I’ve learned a few things: 1️⃣ You’re not going to be friends with everyone, and that’s okay! 2️⃣ You will struggle with a subject. That’s okay too, just move onto the next one, and don’t be afraid to rely on your peers who are more well-versed in a subject if you need help! 3️⃣ Make sure you have a bottle of wine on hand at home just in case.🍷 4️⃣ Take it one test at a time - seriously!! 5️⃣ Tell the ones who support you how much you appreciate them. __________ Though there’s now endless paperwork that must be done for clinicals, another year ahead (one step closer to the finish line), and certainly more ups and downs to come I just had to take this moment to thank all my friends and family who kept me believing it was going “tibia” okay, and to all my healthcare peers I’ve met on social media along the way! You all keep me sane and encouraged me to keep my head up. 💕
The days are long, the work is never ending, and not having a two day weekend for the next 5 years is no fun, but I still stand by the belief that being in the OR is one of the greatest feelings in the world #orlife #generalsurgeryresidency
This weekend marks halfway through my clerkship year. There have been many moments over the past few months when I’ve gotten a bit choked up thinking about the moments and the milestones I’m missing due to long days at the hospital and weekends spent studying. So this weekend, I’m spending it all with my family... no books, no studying... Just my husband, my daughter, and I.
Never lose sight of the end goal, no matter how hard this gets. You’ll lose count of the many hours studied, the numbers nights on call, and the many holidays missed. But remember, today’s sacrifice creates an opportunity for tomorrow’s success. Your future patients are counting on you. If that made you smile, then you, my friend are made for this. . 📷 @sophiejriddell 👩🏻‍⚕️🏥📚📟 . . . #doctorgoals
Little update on GAMSAT prep! It isn’t going so well. Between working full time, beginning private practice again, then being sick and managing burn out, I have really been struggling to prepare for September. So I am framing September GAMSAT as being preparation for March. It can’t hurt to take it again, other than my hip pocket. I am now just going to take the pressure off, stop beating myself up for struggling to fit it all in, and see how I go. . How is everyone else going? Who else is taking it in September? 🤓 . . . . . . . . #Gamsat #gamsatstudy #gamsat2018 #graduatemedicine #postgradstudies #medicine #futuredoctor #futuremd #doctorgoals #biomed #anatomy #physiology #studygram #studyblr #instastudy #clinicalpsychologist #drsharlene #wannabedoctor

This week’s #fellowshipfriday is back with some neonatology alphabet soup! We’re talking about TTN, transient tachypnea of the newborn. 👶🏽 What it is: pulmonary edema due to a {transient - see what we did there 😉} failure to reabsorb lung fluid, which has been secreted by lung epithelium in utero. How should it reabsorb? Let’s just say that could be its whole own post, but the basics are it begins near term and involves: catecholamines, sodium channels, physiology (plus a touch of magic if you ask me ✨) Risk factors: preterm delivery, c-section without laboring, infant of a diabetic mother Presentation: tachypnea or a rapid respiratory rate is seen within two hours of birth - usually right after delivery. Increased work of breathing with nasal flaring, retractions, and/or grunting is also seen. Symptoms should resolve in 12 to 24 hours, but may last as long as 72 hours. Auscultation findings: lung sounds are typically clear! 😱 Differential to consider: top three on any neonatologist’s Ddx is always — sepsis, sepsis, and sepsis! Other possibilities include respiratory distress syndrome (if preterm), pneumothorax, underlying cardiac disease. If the infant is not beginning to improve in the first 12 hours, other causes should be considered. Diagnosis: alveolar edema appears as fluffy densities on radiograph. Prominent vascular markings originating at the hilum can also be seen. Fluid in the interlobar fissure is pathognomonic (example in my story!). Treatment: symptomatic treatment is given to support the infant through the time it takes to clear the lung fluid. If the baby has respiratory distress or grunting, CPAP is used. If the baby is breathing comfortably, but oxygen saturation is below goal, supplemental oxygen is given via nasal cannula. ❤️
Friday, Clinic Day! I love getting to see my patients on clinic days! I’ve built a great relationship with many patients over the last year and it’s exciting to see how much I’ve grown in that process. Residency, with all the struggles and triumphs, is a challenge but it’s slowly molding me into the physician I’ve always strived to become! 👩🏻‍⚕️
▪️My Journey to Medicine▪️ I’ve been wanting to share my story and how I got to where I am now so that some of you with more rocky paths could know that it doesn’t always have to be a straight road to medical school. Growing up, I never knew exactly what being a doctor entailed because I never had any in my family, but I loved the superficial idea of it. So I began college as a premed student majoring in biomedical sciences—for one semester 😅 During that semester, I experienced so much self doubt because I didn’t know how to study, and my parents weren’t too fond of the idea of their daughter moving to a different place for another 4+ years of training. So I caved and switched my major to Health Science to pursue a more lifestyle friendly career of physical therapy. I actually really LOVED physical therapy, learned the intricacies of human movement and healing through exercise—but I craved more responsibility in patient care. I wanted to be making more direct decisions for my patients treatments, and I found that I loved learning more about everything in the human body—not just movement/muscles. By the time I realized I wanted to become a physician, I was studying for my last undergraduate exam—human genetics. I was sobbing everyday before that final because I felt like I was letting go of what I loved. Switching to medicine seemed unrealistic because I had already completed my degree and my cap and gown were hanging in my closet. After some internet searches, and long discussions with family, I took the leap and withdrew my graduation intent, and signed up to take organic chemistry the following week 😅 Because physical therapy had similar prerequisites as medicine, I only needed 3 chemistry course so I ended up cramming research, hospital volunteering, shadowing and taking the MCAT within a year. No lie, that year was one of the most excruciatingly difficult years of my life—moreso than my first year of medical school 😂 But it allowed me to apply while taking only one gap year, and #Alhamdullilah it ended up being so worth it when I got my first acceptance call 🙌🏼 Never ever doubt what you could accomplish when you put your mind towards something 🙏🏼💕
We just want to say thank you to everyone who likes, comments, and messages us! It’s so great to know that we are actually impacting you in some way or fashion! We worked our butts off for months to create this for you guys! Making something we see value in and respect! This is just the beginning! Hope you guys check it out and support! LOVE YOU GUYS!! 😭❤️🙏🏼 #TheMedGrind
Sometimes you just have to enjoy the little things in life... 🏞🌄 . These past few years have been very tough. Medical school really challenges you physically, mentally and emotionally. I remember sleepless nights, studying for exams. Waking up 4am to be at the hospital at 5am to round. Having 2 or 3 exams every week. Being away from my family for weeks at a time... it was hard, exhausting and draining. You have to be a strong person to manage all of that. I considered myself a strong person until I started medical school. No matter how strong you are as a person, there will be times when you're going to need support from friends and family. And no matter how hard it gets, go out and enjoy the little things in life, because we only get one life . . . #doctor #professional #summerfun #fun #successfulwomen #workhardplayhard #work #doc #workworkwork #medicine #science #doctorgoals #doctorlife #women #lake #nature #naturephotography #portrait #nyc #newyork #photography #motivation #like4likes #likeforlikes #likeforliketeam #like4like #doctorintraining
I am pleased to announce I have accepted the offer from the Masters of Medical Physiology Program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland as a graduate student beginning this Fall semester. I’ve come so far from where I used to be and it’s surreal watching my hard work culminate. The last few months have been as stressful as they come. I’ve experienced so many changes and it’s killed me having so many things in my life up in the air. I can say I don’t really know what restful sleep is anymore. But I acknowledge that it’s all part of the process. I’ve come to believe that not all storms come to disrupt your life; sometimes they come to clear your path. Embrace them. Trust in your path. Remember that everything that comes your way is truly meant to be yours. I couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come. 📚 🔬 Life is an adventure. Cleveland here I come. #gradschool #masters #doctortobe #trustyourpath #embracethestorm #medicalphysiology #doctorgoals #newadventure
Happy Friday! I just found this picture of me when I was in high school! It must have been 5-6 years ago! I was taking a phlebotomy course and got phlebotomy certification! This was around the time I chose to take the medicine route and that course is what got my foot in the door. I am so blessed to have all the opportunities I have taken in life so far that have already got me here and hopefully will help me keep going in the future! Take any opportunity you get and don’t back down! You never know where a simple opportunity can take you! You can meet so many nice people, connections, get advice, follow footsteps...etc hopefully more come my way! Good luck on all of your journeys! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to DM me!

I had the BEST time this week learning 20+ surgical procedures from some amazing physicians and anatomists at #seattlesciencefoundation ! I can now place a chest tube and perform an emergency burr hole craniotomy, and also got to hone my skills at intubation, cric placement, urinary caths and suturing. Might even be considering trauma surgery now... 😍🔪 thank you so much #ssfprocedures !!! . . . . . #medicalstudent #medstudent #medicalschool #medschool #ms2 #sgu #stgeorges #stgeorgesuniversity #grenada #puregrenada #caribbean #caribbeanmd #futuremd #mdtobe #physicianintaining #doctorintraining #medicine #surgery #trauma #traumasurgery #clinicalanatomy #doctorgoals
Smiling because tomorrow I get to present my summer research project at my very first Scientific Poster Fair! I’m staring at the glossy poster I worked so hard to put together this week. It’s all rolled up by my bed right now and ready to be set up bright and early tomorrow morning! I’m nervous and excited at the same time.

Summer holidays are here 🙌🏻🙌🏻This heatwave shows no signs of stopping so hopefully you’re using an effective #spf (and enough of it 😳) to reduce your risks of sunburn, skin cancer and accelerated ageing☀️ If white marks, stickiness or fear of getting breakouts have put you off using sunscreen in the past, I’m pleased to confirm that things have changed for the better. Take UV waters, for example 💦 If you haven’t already seen my advice about the new formulations available and which to use for your skin type in @stylistmagazine then today is your lucky day ❤️ . . . . . . #dermatologist #dermatology #london #harleystreet #skin #skincare #motivation #clinic #surgery #skinhealth #beauty #beautytips #doctorgoals #doctorlife #beautyproducts #doctor #healthyskin #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #selfie #shelfie #fitgirl #bblogger #beautyblogger #beauty #acne #acnetreatment #summer #sunscreen #acne #drjustinekluk
Always. Big shout out to my main encourager @samharvey09. Final results for the last semester are in and I am delighted with the results !! Certainly wasnt an easy ride with so much going on outside of my study realm. Such gratitude for those that believe in me and support my why. 😊💜🤓😘 #nutritionalmedicine #doctorgoals #encourage #belief #pushyourself #dreambig #findyourwhy
First day of medical school!! I remember all the emotions running through my body: excitement, joy, happiness but also being nervous. Some quick tips to help you survive Year 1, but also LIFE too: 1. Take a deep breathe! This journey is not a sprint but a marathon. There are going to be many highs and many lows, especially in your first few months of medical school. Most students are not accustomed to the shear amount of material you will learn in such a short span. The initial few months I struggled with how to study, what to study, how long to study, etc. Everything is a process and it will take time to adapt. 2. Adaptability is key 🔑You may been accustomed to one study method during undergrad and grad school, but it may not work in med school. Be open to trying new study methods. There is not one specific way to study and succeed in med school. Find what works for you! 3. Reflection! 📝 This is something I wish I did more because it helps to put things into perspective. When you look back at the lows and highs throughout your time in medical school, you really cherish and appreciate the the wins a little more. I try and take 5 minutes in bed to reflect on my day and reset my emotions in order to get better sleep. 4. Support each other! We are all going to experience rough patches throughout our journeys and we cannot do it alone. It is a tough, but very rewarding journey. We need to uplift each other especially during our downfalls.

The remix that accurately depicts my life😂😂😂 but for real though, KEKE ARE YOU STUDYING?!😂 #inmyfeelingsremix
Do you have tired legs at the end of the day? These compression socks that @viki_hazari got me by @wearfigs are truly amazing. I’ve had chronic venous disease for some years now (it’s genetic), and have tried a few different “compression hose.” It’s hard to find the right fit because if they are too tight around your ankle, or the arch of your foot, you’ll actually feel pain due to over-compression 🤷🏽‍♂️. • • Varicose veins are a common manifestation of chronic venous disease (CVD) and present as excessively dilated, tortuous, and elongated superficial veins in the lower limbs. The first time I saw them in my leg, I honestly thought I was getting jacked 💪🏽and that the visible veins were a sign of my “lean-ness.” Unfortunately, I didn’t start wearing compression gear for a while because the only things available were those “compression hose” that I didn’t want to rock. • • Compression socks come in a variety of pressures. The ones I have are 20-30 mmHg, but I need a higher pressure for relief. Regardless of whether or not you have visible varicose veins, compression socks are a must for any standing job. Your legs will honestly feel energized at the end of the day instead of beaten up and worn down!

Survived and passed year 3 at medical school! A tough year being on the wards, feeling like you know nothing (because you don't know anything) and working a 12 hr shift every weekend in A&E to earn some extra ££....been close to falling apart this year but I am still standing, only roughly 18 months until my finals now #gettingthere #doctorgoals

Last OR day of residency done! ✅ I owe just about everything I know about cataract surgery to this awesome teacher/mentor/friend. I’ll probably never have anyone singing me through the steps of my surgeries again 😄 but I’ve learned so many lessons from Dr. Meier about being a doctor, being a mom, and about life in general - most importantly to keep in mind her famous quote that “Happiness is a choice.” • • • #ophthalmology #womeninmedicine #mamasinmedicine #residency #doctorgoals
People will never understand the struggle of medical school. The pressure is unreal. A day before step 1, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was absolutely devastated. Not only had she battled MS, now this has been thrown on her. I decided to take step 1 (a 10 hour test) and not push it back, and performed below what I was capable of. Step 2ck I had a redemption shot. I knew this was my shining moment, I knew this is what could separate me. I honestly wasn’t expecting my score, I am still crying. I’ve worked so hard for this, for this stupid number. People see me as light hearted and funny, but they’ll never know the amount of times I’d drive home from studying crying, or not being able to sleep because I was so afraid of being subpar. But my story is what motivates me. Medicine has always impacted my life. It’s the only constant I’ve had. And now tons of doors have been opened for residency opportunities. Everything happens for a reason, which sometimes are unexplainable. I am more than this number, I am more than an application. I am Doctor Denison (almost), and these events are what have formed me. Thankful for my family, for my friends (special shot out to Ara, Sara, @juliabottcher and @hschmalzer and @alexxwhiitaker ). And thank you @doctorgoals for my awesome shirt 💁🏽‍♀️ #doctorgoals . Keep on pushing, its all worth it
Finally stopped by the “Scrubs Machine” and grabbed a few pairs. Maybe @wearfigs next business venture should be installing their own scrub machines in hospitals 😜 • • On a real note, I really enjoy working in the ED (even though I’m in IM). The increasing number of patients on Medicaid without an equivalent increase in the number of physicians willing to take that insurance is surely increasing the flood of patients who visit the ER. • • One of the things I enjoyed the most on my ER rotation as a medical student was taking the extra time to talk with patients about what was going on, the ER can be a scary place. As a Resident, I’m realizing how much time “charting” takes, which takes time away from being with patients. So whether you’re an ER Scribe or a Med Student, never underestimate your impact!
No better way to end summer then to give a presentation about your research to physicians and your colleagues. I always ask myself “why do I put myself into these nerve wrecking situations”, but ultimately you always get through them. You share your passion to people and you share what you have learned from your experience. It was a great time to raise awareness on what we have learned over the past 6 weeks. I can’t believe its over but its time to get back to the books and start MS2 next week! . . . . . . . . . . #MedSchool #MedStudent #WVSOM #EmergencyMedicine #CAMC #SummerBreak #FutureDoctor #Medicine #DoctorGoals #wanderinglam
Kenya's most vulnerable populations are women and children living in slums, where basic hygiene resources and practices are most lacking. Through working with community leaders, International Medical Aid designs, funds and executes effective community outreach programs tailored to the specific needs of the given community. Last week, IMA interns in Kenya visited the Nyota Ing'arayo Primary School in the Shauri Yako slum where they taught the kids basic hygiene practices that included brushing teeth, hand-washing and menstrual hygiene for girls. According to the non-profit consulting firm FSG, 65% of women and girls in Kenya are unable to afford sanitary towels which results in girls missing school on these days. At the end of the training, IMA provided the kids with toothbrushes, toothpaste and sanitary towels.

How I feel about completing our GU/GYN exams! 😅 _______________ Truly, it wasn’t bad at all. I was dreading it, out of fear that I wouldn’t know what I was doing, but our patients and instructors were totally comfortable, helpful, and patient. We spent the entire day going over patient education, skills, and tools to help us approach our patients with inclusive and comfortable dialogue, which is so important when covering such an intimate topic. So that’s that - I can now say I know how to do prostate, rectal, breast and pelvic exams 🙌🏼 _______________ Off to enjoy some relaxation (mostly studying) in VT for a few days! 🌿
Only a few days old in some cases but these patients have taught me more about life than wise octogenarians.

The 🔶️suprascapular notch🔶️ houses the ⚡suprascapular nerve⚡, an anatomical structure that ultimately innervates 🍗two muscles🍗 located posterior to the shoulder - the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. When this nerve is damaged, as seen in suprascapular nerve entrapment, the patient loses the ability to fully abduct and laterally rotate the arm. . The importance of the ⚡suprascapular nerve⚡becomes apparent in a condition called suprascapular nerve entrapment. An afflicted patient typically presents with a dull, aching pain😩 located posterior to the shoulder, together with atrophy and weakness of the infraspinatus and supraspinatus muscles. As a result, the patient will have an abnormally limited abduction and lateral rotation of the arm. . repetitive overhead activities, such as playing volleyball🏐 or painting🎨 a ceiling, or tears of the rotator cuff muscles can all lead to suprascapular nerve entrapment.
