Most fond residency experience or memory up to this point?

There have been a lot of great moments, especially with my co-residents. I think one of the best moments though was when one of my clinic patients scheduled a follow-up appointment with me so that she could discuss a medication that one of my senior residents had prescribed for her a couple of weeks before. She wanted for me to confirm that it was ok for her to take the medication because I was "her doctor" and the one that she trusted. Clinic can be overwhelming at times but it's a great experience to take ownership of patients and develop long term relationships.
