Medicine Mondays


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to ponder “The Ideal Job“. Why a Unicorn? Well, “The Ideal Job” is kind of like the Unicorn in that people chase after it, but it probably doesn’t exist. That’s ok though. It’s an ideal, not necessarily something that can actually happen. I mean, every job has its advantages and disadvantages. However, just because your job is a certain way doesn’t mean it needs to stay […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I’ve talked about “Would you do it again?” in regards to being a doctor before. However, today we’re going to revisit the topic. Would you do it again? The TL;DR is that yes I would do it again. However, this answer is different for different people. There is a surprising amount of doctors (that I know), that would not do it again. The explanations are pretty broad. Hours are […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is kind of a short (and late) post about Work Life Balance. Work Life Balance?

For example, as a doctor, perhaps you want to retire earlier and save more money. So the first thing you think about is: “How can I make more money?” […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just going to be a short post on “Dural Venous Sinus Variations“. Dural Venous Sinus Variations? Yea. So, in radiology, we commonly receive studies with clinical concern for dural venous sinus thrombosis. This can be a difficult diagnosis to make. Sometimes it’s a slam dunk and you see abnormal intrinsic T1 signal in the superior sagittal sinus or sigmoid sinus or something. However, other times it can […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is just a short reminder to “Take care of your eyes“. Take care of your eyes? Don’t worry, we’re all doing fine over here. However, I want to take the time to share a story with you guys. Basically, my wife and I both wear glasses and contact lenses. I’m sure this is common for many, many doctors. However, because of our schedules as medical students, residents, and […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just a short post to ponder “September“. September? While it may not seem like that important of a month in the general sense, I think it has a great deal of importance for people still in school and/or training. September kind of marks the beginning of the academic year — at least it did for me. However, my daughter started her kindergarten journey a little earlier, in […]
