Today was a very special day. I have been invited for talks before but this was the best.
I went to my daughter’s class to talk about what I do. The teacher has invited parents to come to the class and talk about what they do for a living.
When I arrived at the school there were 17 children eagerly waiting. I talked about what Hospitalist are and what hospital medicine is about? I also informed them about wound care and hyperbaric medicine. I asked for any volunteers with any “boo-boo” for demonstration. One 7 year old volunteer with an ant bite came forward, who I readily discharged from my service after prompt therapy.
All in all it was a lovely experience.
In the end I asked them if there were any questions or comments, here are some fine examples;
- “My sister kicks me at night, can you do something about it”.
- “My granny has a metal in her hip. Does she need any thing?”
- “Do you also treat cats and dogs?”
- “I know how you become a doctor, you go to med school”.
The best thing is my daughter thought I was awesome! You can’t beat that.

About the picture: My 6 year old daughter was asked what three things you want to do in future.
So if you look at the picture, she scratched 1- Fly 2- Talk to cars. Before what she wrote above.
