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 […]

Life, Anatomy & The Way We Were

PostSecret

I wish there was a way for me to tell this PostSecret author just how much her grandmother’s donation will be respected…a way to express to her just how much people like her grandmother have taught me…have taught all of us. Rest assured that we recognize the sacredness of the anatomy lab…it’s palpable in those rooms. I recall long talks about the people willing to let us learn from them, thoughts of what their life […]

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

October15

Today is an important day to a group of people I’ve expressed a deep gratitude to in the past. Sometimes it’s so easy to live life without remembering what the people around us go through and this is our opportunity to to be reminded of the struggles people have that we may not necessarily share. October 15 is a day to remember families who have experienced the loss of a child through miscarriage, still birth […]

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.
