Family Medicine ends tomorrow

THE PAST four weeks have been among the most enjoyable moments in my clerkship year. I saw simple cases at Fabella Health Center and at the Ambulatory Clinic and realized I still had a lot to learn. I won't talk about how depressing our two-week stint at the Supportive, Palliative, and Hospice Care unit was. Our patients were mostly dying or were in severe pain. But I realized a lot of things and appreciated the value of compassion in patient care. Anyway, here are some photos.

Lennie, CHAP's new model.


One day, at 3 PM, we walked along Roxas Boulevard, not knowing where our feet would take us.



Turista!



We reached Macapagal Avenue and decided to have later afternoon/early dinner at a seafood restaurant.



With Casti and panauhing pandangal Carlo de Guzman.



We walked around MOA until our feet hurt.

Good times, guys!

    1. First reason I can think of: no 24-hour shifts. Makes all the difference.
