Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to talk about “Free Med School?” in reference to NYU. This will be a short post. Free Med School? In general, there aren’t too many ways to go to medical school for free. One is that you are awarded a scholarship, which is pretty uncommon in medical school. Two is that you do an MD PhD program in which your training is free, trading time (doing […]

Free Med School? #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays. Today, I’m going to be talking about something that falls by the wayside. We’re going to talk about “Sleep Hygiene“. Sleep Hygiene? Yea. This is kind of an uncommon topic to talk about. The reason for this is because it’s “not a problem until it’s a problem.” What do I mean by that? Well, when you’re young, even if your sleep hygiene is bad in general you can compensate just […]

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. This is very difficult, and there is likely some interplay between this and the already complex, multifactorial Physician Burnout topic. However, that interplay is outside the scope of this blog post, and would likely require a series […]

You’re a pre-med and want to […]

Medicine Mondays Roadmap Update 7-23-2018 #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This will be a short story with the simple reminder to “Be Excellent to Each Other“. Be Excellent to Each Other? This last few days of my shift have been pretty rough. We had some people get sick and there were some shifts in the schedule. If you combine this with above-average volume, it’s been pretty busy for me and my team these last few days. Some of you […]

Be Excellent to Each Other #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays. Today I was going to do a short post one “Types of Physician Burnout“. Types of Burnout? Yea. I think we’ve all heard about “Physician Burnout”. However, it seems to always be lumped into this one “catch-all” category. Now that I’ve given it some thought, and talked with some of my colleagues/friends that are “burned out”, I think there are probably distinct entities within this “burnout” category. First things first. […]
