rAdIoLoGy NoTeS 26: Seniority 1/24/2010 02:37:00 AM

I got a taste of what it's like to be the chief resident last week when our chief resident decided to take a few day's leave. I had to leave all my work and follow the most junior resident at her post.

The worst was when I had to get back to the hospital at two in the morning under the pouring rain to read an icu patient's abdominal ct-scan. It's a blessing that I live just a short 5 minute ride (or 8-minute walk) from the hospital where I work.

Going on duty is so much easier than being on call...
