After moving to Portland from New York City in 2014, after 20 years as a digital professional, I decided it was time for a career change.. I chose Respiratory Therapy because it felt like the perfect intersection of my interests in math and physics combined with desire to work in health care. All that damn empathy! Gotta put it to use somewhere.
This blog is being started a week prior to graduation from the RT program at Concorde. I should have started it sooner, so many good ideas in interesting factoids have come and gone. But alas, school, clinicals, and my alternate life as a composer/lyricist/web developer/actor/singer kept me busy enough.
This blog will serve as a place to write out ideas and experiences that led to research. I have learned that medicine is a constant exercise in learning and growth. Hence the term “practice”. And the act of putting things in my own words is the best possible learning comprehension process for me. And hey, you might learn something to!
