Medicine Mondays


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and today I’m going to talk about something relevant to The Match… what to do if you’re “Below Average”. Below Average? Yea. I recently was asked by a friend of a friend about how to approach The Match when you’re “Below Average”. First of all, let’s define what this person meant by “Below Average”. In a general sense, this probably means to the entire “medical student package” meaning your grades […]

Below Average #illumedati #medtwitter   Recently updated !


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again, and today is the followup to the post “Prelude to Next Week” and we’re going to talk about “What if?” What if? So the post I wrote was to think about a series of questions: What would you do if you didn’t go to medical school? The opportunity cost of 4 years of medical school and 3+ years of training (6 for me). What would you have done with […]

What if? #illumedati



Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to talk about the importance of “Staying Lean”. Staying Lean? Yea.

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is going to be a kind of a stream of consciousness type post about “Rearview Mirror – Doctor Edition”. Rearview Mirror?

I actually talked about it a second time as well. I would recommend […]

It’s time for another Medicine Mondays Roadmap Update (7-29-2019). Pour some coffee, sit back, relax and click on some of these links: ** denotes new since last roadmap update (1-7-2019) Stock Photo From: Pixabay I cleaned up this post a bit for this update since we have a lot of posts to deal with now: I added bullets and made some subheadings and I’m hoping that will make it easier to navigate. You’re a pre-med and want […]

Medicine Mondays Roadmap Update 7-29-2019


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is just going to be some talk about “Time Off”. Time Off? Yea. I’ve talked about it before, but my work schedule is kind of weird in that I work 8 days and then I’m off 6 days. You would think that with having 6 days off every 2 weeks that I wouldn’t have any real need for a vacation. However, I think people tend to misinterpret just […]
