Looks intense.  I'm very interested in being prepared for my field of choice (Family Medicine) and I've taken a lot of the electives that I know I won't get as much in depth in (namely Cards, Neuro, Endo Derm and ID.)  If I had more time, I would have done an elective in each organ system.  I know that screams out INTERNAL MEDICINE!!! but to be honest, I love kids and OB/GYN too much to give up those aspects of medicine.  My FM advisor talked me out of doing a Peds and OB/GYN outpatient elective ("You'll get that in your residency! Do something else!)

I'll also be tutoring the Life cycle unit in the second semester (blocks GHI) for the MS-2s.  I'm super excited about getting the opportunity to teach and mentor.  I've been tossing around an idea for a differential diagnosis research project that I want to run concurrent with the unit.
