Medicine Mondays


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to talk about somewhat of a somber topic — coming to terms with “Mortality”. Mortality? Yes. Quite simply, as humans we are not immortal, meaning we don’t live forever. As a child this is not something you think about, at all. This is evidenced by some of the crazy decisions kids make (mine included) in which they put themselves in harm’s way. However, as we get […]

Hey everyone, I’ve talked about it before, but make sure you take care of your eyes. Today is just a “Quick Eye Update” from me. So I’ve transitioned back to biweekly contacts from dailies. I am ok with admitting that, for me, going to daily contacts was a mistake. I’m not quite sure what the reason is, but daily contacts simply don’t agree with me. Maybe it’s the material or something, but my eyes don’t […]

However, today’s article is because a friend of a friend […]

Checklist
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. It’s about that time again… the Match has come and gone. Let’s talk about “Preparing for Residency”.

However, the Match happens every year and every year there are new 4th years medical students who will be starting their residency. For that reason, […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays —- but on Tuesday! Today is kind of a follow-up post to Take Care of Your Eyes and Part Two. We’re going to talk about Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis. Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis? Yea. I think I may have mentioned it in passing in my prior few posts, but I wanted to devote a whole post to this topic. Most likely my wife and I both have some form of this disease. […]

Eyes Part 3 – Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis #illumedati


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is a followup post to my previous post Take Care of Your Eyes. It’s aptly named “Take Care of Your Eyes Part Two.” So… what happened? Nothing too crazy, it’s just a follow-up post to the previous one. In that post I discussed going to daily contact lenses, which, although more expensive, I felt would be better in terms of hygiene (and comfort) for my eyes. For reference, […]
