Day 3200: Treatment room

This morning, the adorable old wise dermatologist I was supposed to work with was out sick. So instead of tagging along with another doctor/resident, I decided to go to the treatment room. I had the best morning.

The treatment room is comprised of injecting steroids to minimize scars (or keloids, which is an elevated discolored scar), increase hair growth (for alopecia), etc. There is also suture removal, opening and draining of infections (a dilation and curettage), and other things! I got to inject steroids in to gobs of people this morning. I also removed some sutures. Like I said, it was a great morning.
