Watchful Waiting
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 […]

Stock Photo from: Pixabay After clicking this link, you may be wondering what I mean by Med School Cost Analysis. There have been many, many other posts and articles about the opportunity cost of going to medical school, including the length of schooling and student loans. That’s not what this post […]

Be The Match
Hi everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and I apologize that this post is late. I’ve been kind of running around California trying to meet up with old friends. However, today I want to talk about “Be The Match”. Stock Photo from: Pexels What is “Be The Match?” Well, “Be The Match” is a database run by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). As you may or may not know, the mainstay for a potential curative treatment […]
