Today we learned to cast a simple wrist fracture here at the college of medicine. It was great fun (and probably good that we practiced on each other before dealing with a real live injured person.) Sometimes I need days like this to break up the monotony of plain old booklearning.
Mine was blue! and my partner did a much prettier job at the hand-end of the cast.
While my job on my partner's arm didn't end up anywhere near perfect, I love these hands-on experiences. They're sort of like friendly little reminders that there's life beyond exams and textbook studying, and they get me excited for clinical rotations- only 4 short months away :) I can't wait.
What did you learn in school today?
