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 […]

What Medical School Doesn’t Teach Us

Defeated, Confused, Sad Doctor

In the course of our work as doctors we will undoubtedly witness events that change the life of our patients, but coming into medical school I never realized how directly some of these events would also change my life.  Often in medicine we see people at the worst possible time. Our patients are usually sick or grieving and rarely happy to be in our presence, no matter how great we might think we are. More […]

Medical School in the Dominican Republic

Santo Domingo Children's Hospital

Today I am honored to be continuing our Medical Education Monday series with Medical School in the Dominican Republic. Our Mind On Med guest blogger for today is Vera, a 21 year old medical student in the Dominican. She’s starting her 5th year of medicine and is still wide open on the specialty front, but has a special interest in Neurology. 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 […]

Medicine Across Cultures – Medical Education Monday

Medicine Across Cultures

Today I am honored to have Mat (@lonemat on Twitter) from London guest blogging about his recent medical elective in India, where he spent time interacting with medical professionals from various countries. Not only am I ecstatic to have Mat blogging today because he’s one of my favorite tweeters, but I’m also honored to have him here as he was also involved in the conversation that initially sparked my interest in creating the Medical Education […]

Medical School in South Africa

ER24 South Africa EMS

I am beyond excited to have Medical Education Monday back this week with Renate from “The Regatta” as our guest. Renate is a 20 year old South African medical student in her second year of medical education. She is interested in Pediatric Surgery, but makes sure to let me know that at this stage in her education she has a lot left to experience and is keeping an open mind. Renate speaks two languages fluently […]

Trip To Betty Ford Institute In My Future

    I was three and she was 24 when we left – for years the alcohol and drugs precipitated the fighting, which brought on the feelings of guilt, which inevitably lead to more drinking. It was a vicious cycle that had to be broken and, no matter how much my he begged my mom not to leave with me, she knew we couldn’t stay.    He’s a good man, my dad – a smart, […]

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 Education Monday – Social Media

Today’s Medical Education Monday is going to take a bit of a different direction. I’ve run out of foreign medical students and doctor friends for the time being, so today I’m going to focus on a different aspect of Medical Education – Social Media. In the mean time, if you know someone in medicine from a country we haven’t covered send them my way – I’d love to have them! If you missed it, you can […]

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.
