Medicine Mondays

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is kind of a random post about “What is Bouveret Syndrome?” What is Bouveret Syndrome? This is kind of random but recently I saw a case of Bouveret Syndrome, and interestingly New England Journal of Medicine just recently did an article about it. So today is kind of an educational day on what to look for in this interesting case, from both the clinical side and radiology side. […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is just kind of a “musings” type of post where I talk about Work Life Balance. Work Life Balance? Yea. I see this string of words everywhere lately, especially in reference to physicians.
