Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. Today we’re going to talk about my “Operator Error”. Operator Error? Yea. I think sometimes when we teach other people how to do things, we tend to forget steps because they seem self-explanatory. However, these only occurs because we’re done it so many times.

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 […]
