Medicine Mondays

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again… and this is kind of a followup to my previous post, Choosing Your First Job. This post will go into a little more depth about The First Job, more specifically, about choosing a first job with a “temporary” mindset.

The (Temporary) First Job #illumedati

Hi guys, it’s Medicine Mondays, and most of my posts recently have been focused on the post-match preparation for internship. Today, I’m going to switch gears for a second to talk about Development Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH). This was previously known as “Congenital Dislocation of the Hip” but that name has now fallen out of favor because it is a misnomer. So then, What is Development Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH)?

I do plan to continue on with an interview series about buying a house in residency with Dr. E and Dr. K, however, I haven’t been able to talk to them yet. But it’s now the end of April, so instead of Post-Match, it’s […]

Rather than push out an unfinished post, I decided to switch gears, with plan to return to The House […]

Why Does Medicine Move So Slowly? #illumedati

Hey guys, it’s Medicine Mondays.. and while buying a house may seem like a Whatever Wednesdays post, I think this particular post fit Medicine Mondays better since it pertains to this critical post match period. So let’s talk about The House Buying Itch – Post Match Edition.

The House Buying Itch – Post Match Edition #illumedati

Hi everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is going to be a short post about Mentors and Why You Need Them. Stock Photo from: Pixabay What do you mean by “mentors”? A long time ago, the mentor-protegé relationship was usually very restricted. For example, a classic mentor-protegé relationship would be Socrates, who taught Plato, who taught Aristotle. However, I think it was more of a master-apprentice relationship. However, a long time ago, people were born, […]
