Today was my first day staffing residents in the cataract OR at USC+LA County Medical Center as a volunteer attending. It was my first time walking through the old County hallways since graduation, and it brought back a flood of memories from my residency days. Like the first time we struggled to catch a glimpse of the retina with our new lenses (everything is inverted unlike the direct ophthalmoscope which we never use!) How many late call nights we spent seeing one emergency after another (e.g. ruptured globe, corneal ulcer, retinal detachment, neovascular glaucoma). But in return, we gained invaluable hands-on-experience managing the most advanced cases at one of the largest and busiest county hospitals in the country. It is truly a privilege to graduate as a LAC+USC resident ✌. #countystrong#fighton#lovemedcouture .
