Medicine Mondays


If not Medicine... then what?
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I wasn’t sure what to write about for this week, but since last week I talked about “Why Radiology?, I’ve decided to do another “stream of consciousness” type post to ponder “If not Medicine… then what?” So then… let’s think about it: If I didn’t go to medical school, what would I have done? Well, anything I say here will just be all speculation, but just let me talk […]

If not Medicine… then what? #illumedati


Why Radiology? 1
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and I didn’t really have any particular post in mind today. So today is going to be another “stream of consciousness” type post where I ponder “Why Radiology?” So this is probably going to be a short post. I don’t think I’m going to go into too much depth and introspection here, at least not today. So then, Why Radiology? Well, if you may recall, I didn’t originally set out […]

Hey guys, it’s Medicine Mondays again. To be honest I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about today. However, I recalled in my prior posts about the importance of “doing nothing”. So for today’s post, I’m going to talk about Watchful Waiting. This should be a short post. So it’s mid August now… All of the new interns have cut their teeth now and have a bunch of patients under their belts. Their experience […]

Watchful Waiting #illumedati


Hi everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today I’m going to attempt to recreate my “Experience Matters” post that I lost a few weeks ago. Experience Matters? Well of course it does! Well, you may not be thinking of it in the same way I am. Obviously, a novice just starting his trade will not nearly be as confident or have the technical skill as a master who has been doing it for years. This is […]

Why Experience Matters #illumedati

Hi everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again and I had promised to rewrite my post about “Experience Matters” because it was lost. However, I woke up this morning with some back pain, kind of like mid-lower right back pain. For this reason, I’m going to talk about me being an Old Man with Back Pain. This is only circumferential related to Medicine, but just bare with me. This should be a short post. (Spoilers: It ended […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I didn’t really have anything in particular that I wanted to write about today so this post may seem incoherent at times. Today I want to talk about The Test That Decides Your Life (But Not Really). Stock Photo from: Pixabay What do you mean? Well, on The Track, there are a lot of speed bumps on the way to being a doctor. Sometimes you fall off. Many of these […]
