Close to Home

Ready for a week that will hopefully equip me with tools to make a difference back home. First day was great, including a pretty emotional video about a medical error with a devastating outcome, something I have unfortunately been able to see happen at a teaching hospital first hand early in my training. Growing as a physician and person includes accepting errors made and responding appropriately. Steering clear of human tendencies of avoidance, denial, and anger are negative responses.

Still tachypneic from this altitude but excited to learn!
