Hello, and welcome to my diary! My name is Phyllis, more recently known as Dr. Ying. I am a newly-minted family medicine resident and I love my job. Within these pages, I hope to share with you some of the highs and lows of residency, along with a snapshot of the breadth of patients and disease that I see as a family med doc. Enjoy!
— I started keeping an art journal during clinicals at med school and it helped me process what I was learning.
— I have been journaling since age 10, and my first journal had a cat on it.
— I am a resident in the Pacific Northwest, which is my favorite place.
Write on, Phyllis!
Join me as I reflect on the challenges and joys of being a family medicine resident physician through the pages of my personal journal. Please note: all opinions are my own and do not reflect those of my employer or residency program. Names and other identifiers have been altered unless pertinent to the discussion at hand.
