Facebook Info Update
As posted in the Info section of my Facebook:
“Its almost the New Year and I couldn’t be more excited for it because in May I am finally graduating med school and then heading out to Honolulu, Hawaii for a psychiatry residency at Tripler Army Medical Center!
Actually I am not sure EXACTLY when I will be moving. I graduate May 15th and the start date for residency is July 1st, but I am also supposed to do a 6 week Officer’s Training in there somewhere so who knows.
Here’s some answers to common questions:
-Residency is 4 years long
-I owe the Army 4 years after that, though I may choose to stay longer
-Not sure where I’ll go after that, maybe Ft. Leonard Wood in MO… maybe Germany!
-the dogs can come without a 6 month quarantine, it just takes alot of prep work
-I will be saving money & time to visit home twice a year
-I am not concerned with “Island Fever”… I have been stuck on the island of Kirksville for 8 years
My To Do List:
-find a rental home in Hawaii
-decide what to do with vehicles
-navigate all the prep work to get the dogs moved over with us
-find out when I do OT
-plan a trip to Maine before or after graduation
-have a GINORMOUS yard sale
-get a new computer
-get new phones
I know, things took a total left turn, but it is awesome and we are so excited! We’ll keep you updated, check back here or my blog Michelle Vs the Med Student”
