As a first year, I also started clinic rotations since my last blog post. All of us first years are in an observational rotation with various clinics. I am in general pediatrics right now and have learned so much from just observing a genetic counselor for a few cases a week, as well as figuring out case prep, EPIC, and case summaries. It is just as exciting as I thought it would be, and I think everyone else in the year agrees. I am learning more than I had hoped about specific disorders, and have seen a few really interesting cases. We are getting more into role plays in class with IGC , and this helps with clinic too as we are practicing empathy, contracting, and medical intakes. I am looking forward to lysosomal storage disorder clinic next quarter, as that will bring on a whole new set of genetic conditions for me to learn about, as well as taking on a role or two. Yikes!
