Patient Stories: Cancer & The Caregiver

Screen Shot 2012-07-26 at 8.01.02 AM

If you’ve been around here long you know that my love of social media goes beyond tweeting pictures of the most adorable twins on the planet and talking #meded with others in the healthcare world, it extends into the world of patients and their stories. Social media is fun, it’s interesting, and it’s a good way to interact, but more importantly social media is a teacher. I’ve learned more about how to be a compassionate […]

Medical School in Denmark

Denmark Med Ed Monday Header

Today we have a wonderful guest blogger, Andy Skovsen, with us to talk about medical education in Denmark! Andy lives in Copenhagen, but seems to have been a bit of a nomad having lived in the US a while and just returned from working in South Africa! He has also spent some time in the Danish Military and still works part-time with them. I must say, I’m a little jealous of all the great culture […]

Medical School in Indonesia

Indonesian Flag

Today I’m excited to introduce to you Anna, a 22 year old medical student from Bogor, West Java province in India. She is in her last year of clinical clerkships at Universitas Pelita Harapan medical school, a bilingual (Indonesian and English) open to both local and foreign students. Currently, Anna is undecided on a specialty, but is interested in both Neurology and Emergency Medicine. She has five more rotations before she finishes, so it will […]

I Love My Job – Medical Educator Edition

ILMJ - Medical Educator

As a first year I began working alongside a Pediatrician who would become pivotal in shaping my view of doctors and specialty choice. The way she loved her job shined through every single day (and still does as I work with her in third year) and the example she was to me became key in my discovery of the importance pursuing a career in a field you love holds. She showed me how important it was to […]

She loves blogging, snail mail, singing and coffee (would we even call her a […]

My Doctor Has A “DO,” What Is That?

Full Body Physician

I am honored to have @DrJonathan, a Family Medicine resident from Chicago, guest blogging this week for Medical Education Monday on what exactly a “DO” degree is. After receiving questions on Twitter from two separate people asking if it was “ok” to continue seeing their physician who had a “DO” degree, I knew it was time for this post. Before applying to medical school I truly had no idea there were two types of physicians […]

A few weeks ago, while I was consumed with memorizing what causes a left shift on the O2 Dissociation Curve, I received an email that made me giddy with excitement and overwhelmed with gratitude. MomMD.com, a site I’ve frequented many times since deciding to apply to medical school, contacted me asking if I’d consider coming onto their team as a weekly blog contributor. I am ecstatic to have this opportunity and can’t wait to get […]

Medical School in the UK, Residency in the US

Today’s Medical Education Monday post is one I have been looking forward to reading since he offered to write it for me a few weeks ago! Nick Bennett (@peds_id_doc) is a Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellow in Syracuse, NY and he has a very unique perspective to share with the Mind On Medicine readers today. Dr. Bennett went to medical school (and got his PhD…overachiever…does that mean we call him Doctor Dr. Bennett? I think it […]

Medical School in The Caribbean

Over the course of this series it has become very apparent that medicine is a competitive occupation no matter what country you live in. This holds true to higher degree in some countries more than others. Brenda, a Canadian in the midst of getting her MD from a Caribbean medical school, was nice enough to do a write up for me on what it’s like to get your medical degree from a school in the […]

About The Author

I’m a Medical Student (that means I'm in school to become a doctor). My life story can be viewed here. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit school and move to Hollywood, so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact I'm probably a spambot. Or a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
