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 […]

Breaking The Rules

Save

A recent article called “To Tweet, or Not To Tweet: Physicians Misusing the Internet” discussed a new JAMA study which apparently found that… “92 percent of state medical boards in the United States have received reports of [online] violations ranging from inappropriate contact with patients to misrepresentation of credentials.” I guess this is supposed to be shocking, but I was really somewhat underwhelmed with the information (I was actually more shocked it wasn’t 100% – […]

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 […]

Find Your Voice, Listen To Theirs

Rainy Houston

Rain drops trickle down the double-paned, ovoid window as my eyes jump from plane to plane watching for movement on the runway. The rainy weather in my connecting city has brought me back to the familiarity of muggy, hot Spring days that were so common place in my college years and I’m reminded of the excitement I felt of being in a new place, doing new things. As we taxi the runway for what seems […]

Five Reasons Mind On Med (and @daniellenjones) Won’t Disappear For Interviews

Writing

As Match Day for the Class of 2012 quickly fades into the background and residency applications for my class begin to appear on the (horrendously terrifying, Wizard of Oz tornado-esque) horizon, I find my classmates starting to disappear (or discuss disappearing) from Facebook and other socially-oriented websites. “Are you taking your blog down for application and interview season?” someone innocently asked, “I mean, some program directors just may not appreciate the ‘social media’ involvement as […]

Ob/Gyn Clerkship

LadyParts

I finished up my Ob/Gyn rotation at the end of December, right before we headed out for our awesome New Zealand adventure, and never got around to telling y’all about it…so here we go! Obstetrics & Gynecology This is a specialty that deals solely with all the amazing (and occasionally scary and not-so-amazing) things the female reproductive tract can do. Obstetrics is derived from the latin word “obstare” which means “to stand by.” Obstetricians take […]

Sh*t Med Students Say

Haven’t talked to me in a while? Here’s what you’ve been missing: “So, he was telling me he gets a lot of sand in his eyes…but…uh…he’s always been like that…so…um…but he told me about it…so maybe it’s…I dunno…maybe it’s clinically significant.”   And on that note, holy wow our surgery rotation is intense. See you guys in late February…I’ll be the one with the bags under my eyes and mascara tears of fear (or sweat […]

Why Medicine?

Why Medicine

“Why Medicine?” – the second most common question I’m asked as a medical student (after “What kind of doctor do you want to be?”). Not an easy question to answer, really – but a valid one and one I often ask to my interviewees during their medical school interviews. I think some people expect a profound, life-changing story about the ER physician who brought me back from the brink or an inspiring timeline of how I’ve wanted to […]

About The Author

I’m an Ob/Gyn resident (that means I went to medical school to become a doctor) and now I'm working like a crazy person to learn my trade before I'm on my own in the wild. Once upon a time I birthed a couple of babies of my own, they're friggin' adorable twin toddlers now. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I only started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine 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 possibly 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.
