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 […]

A Little Red Change

Red Hair

Do you ever feel like you just need to make a change? Not a big change. I never get the urge to auction my life off on Ebay (all yours for one low price – a Mazda, stressful medical exams, & crazy dogs! BUY NOW)…that’s going too far…especially for someone who gets palpitations thinking about changing blog headers and profile pictures. Just little things. I’m pretty good at neglecting my hair – last year I went […]

Medical School in Canada

Med Ed Monday - Canada

I was recently contacted by Jessica, a 21-year old 2nd year medical student at the University of Alberta in Canada, offering to teach us about Medical Education in Canada! She complete 3 years of undergrad in Vancouver, BC – her focus of study was Microbiology. Jessica runs the blog Atalanta’s Antics and also tells me she’s a film nut, choir director, hockey pseudo-player, actor, pianist and BBC fan. This chick is the dictionary definition of […]

Hoarders: Med Student Edition

White Coat WTF

I’ve expressed my disdain regarding wearing my white lab coat many times around here – it’s hot, it’s uncomfortable, it’s germy – but something I’ve never allowed myself to admit is that sometimes it can be kind of useful (SOMETIMES. like when it’s not being annoying…or stiff…or disgusting). The pockets are just under 14 light years deep, so if you need to carry a galaxy or two with you into a patient room or 14 Red Bulls and […]

Post-Halloween Comedic Relief

Last week Jimmy Kimmel issued a challenge to his viewers: Tell your kids you ate all their Halloween candy and record their reactions. The results were nothing short of hilarious. Pay particular attention to the two boys at the end. Tweet This Post

One Year Blog-O-Versary

330by250

Today is my 1 Year Blogging Anniversary! One Year Ago I: Wrote a post that started with “I have no idea if I’ll start writing here regularly.” Was a 2nd year Medical Student who had written 4 blog posts ever (and it took all of four entire years to get those travesties to blogging out). Had zero subscribers, less than 10 visitors and less than 100 followers on Twitter. Used Blogger to publish my posts, the blog looked like […]

Psychiatry Clerkship

Psychiatry

I finished my Psychiatry Rotation a couple of weeks ago and figured now would be a good time to recap the Freudian experience. Psychiatry Psychiatry is a specialty that deals with diagnosing and treating mental disorders. The difference between a Psychiatrist and Psychologist is in both training and job description – Psychiatrists have medical degrees (either MD or DO) and the prescribing abilities consistent with such. Psychologists typically have a PhD and do not prescribe […]

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. 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 started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...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.
