Sick Again
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today is going to be a short post about “What’s the deal with Coronavirus?” What’s the deal with Coronavirus?

Double Post Wednesday #illumedati


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today I’m going to just kind of talk about “Shift Work“. Shift Work? Yea. For most medical professions, there is some opportunity to do shift work. However, today I’m going to talk about my particular specialty — radiology. In general, a “normal” schedule for a radiologist is 8-5pm, Monday-Friday affair. Usually, depending on how big your group is, you may need to work 8-12 hours on a Saturday and/or […]
