My name is Emily Howard. I live in Omaha, Nebraska with my wonderful husband, Nicholas. I am fresh out of Internal Medicine residency and am starting a new job as a Hospitalist. Becoming a doctor was a dream of mine since I was just a little girl, and I am so excited to share my journey with you! Medicine is a field like no other. Everyone from every walk of life will at some time or another be in need of healing. Physicians get to share some of our most precious moments with us. I am blessed and honored to be given a chance to experience the world through the eyes of a healer. I hope that this blog will help you better understand what it takes to be a physician and help you on your own medical journey.

I have nominated you for The Liebster Award! (I feel like I should really say “Tag, you’re it!”) It’s silly, but nevertheless, I really enjoy reading your blog. Please click here to accept it/participate!
Hi Emily, I think I just “liked” 5 or more of your posts. You are a great writer- everything reads very well, it’s easy to follow, and so very interesting Thanks for sharing your experiences! I am going to start medical school this August so I’ve started a blog myself. I’m a little apprehensive about the upcoming semester. I have always considered myself a very organized person and I love to take ridiculously detailed notes in class. However, with the amount of information we are required to learn in medical school, I think I will have to come to terms with the fact that I can’t possibly know everything. I’m no Hermoine Granger (haha) but usually if I put in enough effort, I can memorize/internalize a great deal of information. Well, let’s see how my first set of blocks go this year!
I am glad to hear you enjoy my blog! Writing is a great way to “stay sane” in med school! Your note taking skills will serve you well in the next few years. The key is learning what is important and what isn’t. Once you figure that out you can really focus your notes. I find that once I organize the information, it is much, much easier to learn! You will do great, and I look forward to checking out your blog!
Hi! I’m an aspiring medical student (still in High School) and I found your blog very inspiring, so I think you deserve the Liebster Award. Check out my post at: (http://cookiescreamandme.wordpress.com/2014/04/17/nominated-for-the-liebster-award-2/). I hope you can accept the award!

Thank you so much for your posts, I am proud to say I have read almost every entry over the past couple days! I’m thinking about medical school myself, and would love to pick your brain when you would like a break from studying 😉 Thanks again for your insight!
I’m always happy to answer questions!
Hey Emily, only month to go until your graduation. Good luck with your final steps! I can imagine that you´re pretty busy right now, but I wanted to ask if there is an interest in reviewing a new good medical resource for med students? If yes, just drop me a mail. Big thanks, Till
