I wear a mask whenever I evaluate a patient with influenza, meningitis, or other infection that can easily be transmitted. Other times I wear a mask just to look like a Ninja. This is one of those times. 😉 🥋 #ninjaprecautions

Set up and ready to go! Today was our last village visit and probably our most mellow day. We tried to soak up every minute of it realizing the trip is quickly coming to an end. We have two more days in Belize and it's back home to our normal routine. If ever you've done work outside the country you know how difficult that can sometimes be.
Hope our fellow friends are ready for recruitment. 😜

It’s not all lifting weights and protein shakes.

Flashback to the dream team on my most recent trip to Ethiopia. Missing my patients, the bustle of clinic, and spontaneous camel rides 🐪.

I’m stoked to be jumping back into emergency and wilderness medicine when I get back to Colorado! (Not much of a market in Detroit.) As much as I love sports nutrition and fitness, my passion for global health and wilderness badassery will always prevail.

Thanks @wearfigs for reading my mind : as long as my feet hurt more than my own arse then I’ll say here’s to a week well done! 💪🏻

We had a fun morning didactic session practicing flaps and tissue transfer on 🐖 feet. Check out my (tiny)🐷 A➡️T advancement flap, rhombic and bilobed transposition flaps in the second pic 😬 Also finally got a chance to rock my @wearfigs Rama crewneck scrub top and Satara trouser scrub pants; so comfy and fits like a glove. Yes I braved to cold to take this picture (definitely not in Hawaii anymore...) Use code FIGSxTeaWithMD for 15% off your order! #wearfigs 📸credit: @drmitaleechristman

Dr. Chatterjee is the name; baby catching is the game! 🤣🙃 To let everyone in on a (not so secret) secret I had always planned on being a doctor from the time I was a little girl. When people used to ask me what I was going to be when I grew up,I would always reply that I was going to be a doctor. My father would joke and tell me and the people that had asked that I was confused and was actually going to be a bus driver. It came from the fact that I loved the bus driver on Sesame Street. The bottom line was that my family was going to support me no matter what path I took and my father instilled in me humility and an appreciation for hard work being rewarded. Both my parents taught me and showed me that things in life do not come easily - they have to be earned. All through medical school I was certain that I was going to go into pediatrics until my pediatrics rotation. I was so incredibly excited to be in the specialty I’d always dreamed of when I realized it just wasn’t the right fit for me. Following that I did my surgery rotation. I absolutely loved surgery but at the same time didn’t really feel like general surgery was the right fit either. When I did my obstetrics and gynecology rotation next I knew that this was for me. Just like they say that when you meet the right person in life you just know - when I found the specialty that was for me, I just knew. What I do has been worth it all and continues to be. The lesson in this is that whether you’re in medicine or anything else if you’re not certain what your path should be or what you should devote your life to try out some different things and understand that when you find what’s right, you will just know. Be flexible because what you think is perfect for you may not end up being so. #oncall _______________________________________________________________ #babycatcher #careergoals #ootd #fashionista #wearfigs #laboranddelivery #rosegold #motivation #nutrition #womenshealth #womeninmedicine #fitfam #iin #likeaboss #girlboss #bossbabe #girlygirl #keto #ketogenic #mswarrior #autoimmune #premed #medstudent #medlife #scrublife #healthcare #infertility #ttc #pregnancy

Santa Cruz Village today and it was nonstop. I believe our final count was almost 120 patients making a total of 350 villagers in Belize over the last three days. This doesn't take into account all the patients that were seen in the hospital today.
Needless to say, my heart is full. ❤️

accurate depiction of how i feel (but not how i look) after my first day of practicum!!!! 4 deliveries, a c-section, and a tubal ligation make for a good day, though my feet are sore and my skin is soooo dry from the hospital air and recent weather. my preceptor is really sweet and that’s really all i could’ve asked for because i was terrified i’d get a preceptor who hates her job/life/precepting/nursing students. 🙈 oh! and we worked with a midwife who i didn’t expect to be fluent in spanish, but she was and i was so impressed! it also inspired me to keep self-studying so i can better advocate for my spanish speaking mamas, because those interpreters can be hard to use/get. anyway, that’s just an update on my practicum journey so far - loving L&D so much, but really is that news? 💕

At the hospital today. Got to eat lunch with the hubs ❤️ The cross necklace I have on was a gift from my husband on our wedding day 👰🏽 I love to wear it, especially to work. It reminds me to show the love of Christ in everything I do. No patient comes to the hospital because they are healthy/having a good day/want to be there. Being a nurse is a wonderful opportunity to care for people who are hurting in Jesus’ name.

Don’t think because I work in an office now that there isn’t excitement. Today we had a page to the RN emergency pager about a man that fell outside. Get to the scene to find him post-ictal, bleeding everywhere from a large laceration on his head and nose. Being a nurse is like a box of chocolates - ya never know what you’re gonna get!

Well, that was a long night. Stu and I spent the day in a village which was incredible. When we arrived back into town we got an emergent call we needed to head to the hospital due to multiple surgeries that still needed to take place. Needless to say, we were at the hospital till one am. Luckily, all the surgeries went well. We woke up bright and early this morning to head out to another village. .

I was driving home tonight and my senior resident texted me and said, “I feel like I disappointed you. I didn’t check labs. I didn’t follow up on things. And I felt like I underperformed. It was unacceptable.” I smiled, smirked and responded, “Bra, I feel like that every day. The day you don’t feel like that is the day that you stop getting better as a physician. There’s always room for self-improvement and I always feel like a good Doctor finds holes in their game. You discover the hole and patch it up.” That’s really what you’re supposed to do throughout life. That’s confidence to me. Not always having the right answer. But knowing when you are wrong and how to find the right way. I continue to get better every single day and I hope I continue to do so. You will too. I know that because the way you felt today is the first step towards doing so.

Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week and still going strong. You know what's weird, I used to be able to stay up until midnight every night and then wake up ready to roll for work at 6 am like it was nothing. Nowadays, I'm out for the count at 10 pm. I think I'm becoming more of a sleep enthusiast. But seriously, coffee can only take you so far, sleep is important! 😊

This guy took my staples out of my head today! A few of you asked how I’ve been doing since my ?syncopal episode last weekend. I’m going through the motions of healing after a concussion but otherwise doing great and back at work. So far workup hasn’t shown anything and maybe we will never know. But that’s the beauty of medicine. #concussionprobs #mybrainhurts #mystery #runninginjury #hashrun #residency #interns #medicine #womeninmedicine #WearFIGS #emergencymedicine #doctor #physician #nurse #rn #PA #medstudent #medicalstudent #concussion #runningproblems
