Medicine Mondays

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. It’s about that time again… the Match has come and gone. Let’s talk about “Preparing for Residency”. Preparing for Residency To be perfectly honest, this is kind of a lazy post on my part since it is kind of rehash of multiple prior posts. However, the Match happens every year and every year there are new 4th years medical students who will be starting their residency. For that reason, […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays —- but on Tuesday! Today is kind of a follow-up post to Take Care of Your Eyes and Part Two. We’re going to talk about Giant Papillary Conjuctivitis. Giant Papillary Conjuctivitis? Yea. I think I may have mentioned it in passing in my prior few posts, but I wanted to devote a whole post to this topic. Most likely my wife and I both have some form of this disease. […]

Eyes Part 3 – Giant Papillary Conjuctivitis #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is a followup post to my previous post Take Care of Your Eyes. It’s aptly named “Take Care of Your Eyes Part Two.” So… what happened? Nothing too crazy, it’s just a follow-up post to the previous one. In that post I discussed going to daily contact lenses, which, although more expensive, I felt would be better in terms of hygiene (and comfort) for my eyes. For reference, […]

Take Care of Your Eyes Part Two #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today’s topic is only circumferentially related to Medicine. Today we’re going to talk about “What is BetterBack?” BetterBack? Yea. As you all know by now, I’m a radiologist. And not only that, I’m a teleradiologist. The majority of my 10 hour shifts are spent sitting down. Yes, we do have standing desks, but my concern is sometimes the desks break down and you’re left with it stuck in one […]

What is BetterBack? #illumedati #medtwitter

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays today. Today I just wanted to talk about me doing “Career Day” at my daughter’s elementary school. Career Day When I initially signed up to do the Career Day for my daughter, I wanted to try to explain the differences between different types of doctors. I wanted to help the children to understand that while we do different things, we’re all still doctors. So I’ll just try to explain how […]

Career Day #illumedati

Hey everyone, just a short light-hearted post today for April Fool’s. April’s Fools? Yea. Match Day has come and gone and I can imagine that a lot of medical students and others are putting plans in place to move to a new place. I tend to harp on this a lot, but I recommend that you do not buy a house. Every year people don’t take my advice. Some end up doing very, very well, […]
