UCSF is one of the finest medical institutions in the world. Everyone who graduates from their fellowships goes on to be come Professor of This or Director of That. It also happens to be located in the one place in the world that I consider to be "home."



I put in an application to do a fellowship in adolescent medicine there. I never once considered that there was a real chance that I could get in. They're way too prestigious for lil' ole me.



...except I did. bounce2 I got the phone call today.



I also learned from their program director that my current boss considers me to be one of the best residents to have come through his program in years.



There's a hitch. The usual start date for a fellowship would be 1 July 2008. In my case, one of their fellows got pregnant or something and is six months behind. They cannot have an extra fellow, and so I won't be able to start until the beginning of January 2009, or perhaps as late as July 2009. Either way, I have a guaranteed position.



I'M IN!



And I'm moving home. biggrin ubblol ubbrollsmile cool smile



(This is big, guys. This is really big!) hug

13 days remain of exile (time that I am away from SF not by choice)

I have several large jars of the stuff. I actually like it... a little. And don't tell anyone I admitted to it.
