Lazy Monday
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and I was going to write about The Match or about Being Home for Christmas. However, I was kind of busy over the weekend, and then I had to spend the morning on a preschool tour for my son and daughter, closer to home. So today will be Lazy Monday Reposts. Rather than do a half-finished post, I think it’s a better idea to just remind you guys to check […]

The Most Precious Commodity - Small
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again… and this post is late. Apparently Spectrum is doing some work outside my house in my little community and my internet was out for the morning, delaying this post. However, it’s here now. So today I’m going to talk about the most precious commodity. Well, in my last post I talked about Bitcoin and how crazy it’s been (and still is). As I write this, it’s sitting around $16000 […]

Time to Look for a Job
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. It’s the beginning of December now and we’re right in the middle of The Match. However, what about everyone else in their last year of residency/fellowship?

For example, when I was looking for a job as a neuroradiology fellow, I started looking really early, […]

Given how volatile things are with Bitcoin, we may see a huge boom or bust between me writing this post and me actually posting […]

Stealth Wealth
Hey guys, it’s Finance Fridays again… and it’s actually Black Friday, which is kind of the poster child for consumerism and materialism. However, today I want to talk about a concept called “Stealth Wealth“. The above picture is the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit also known as the “B2 Bomber” or “Stealth Bomber”. For those interested, here is an excerpt about its Stealth characteristics: Stealth The B-2’s engines are buried within its wing to conceal the […]

Stealth Wealth #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is going to be a short post on the culture of Medicine, especially the concept of “resilience“. So every year, a fresh group of bright-eyed 1st year medical students start medical school. The vast majority of them start the year with ambitions to be the best doctor they can be and for most of them I think there is a feeling of “I can’t believe I’m going to […]
