What I learnt in my 3 months of paediatric posting

I just completed my three months rotation in pediatrics department, and, as a farewell gift, a little girl decided to pee on my "Friday wear" as I was rounding up.

It still is one of my favourite quote. Today, I’ll be sharing some of the treasures, the late Dr Maya Angelou learnt during her time here on… Continue reading Monday Motivation: Gems from Maya Angelou
