Of Flaming Ovens & Paula Deen

Oops...

When the mood strikes I occasionally like to pretend I’m Paula Deen and dress up in a collared shirt, lay on the thick(er) Southern drawl and cook up a little storm in our kitchen…and by “cook up a little storm” I literally mean become a human baking cloud and rain down flour all over my clothing, floor and iPad recipe app while attempting to concoct something edible. Sometimes I get really lucky and produce pure […]

Thursday Thoughts | Distributing personal medical information via social networks

Social Information

From a friend’s Facebook status: Times have definitely changed. I am filling out my son’s paperwork for his well check with his new pediatrician and there is a spot to put your Facebook or Twitter account down to receive non urgent info about the patient! We are clearly moving in the direction of social media and digital information, so I would love to hear your thoughts on the following (answers should assume consent from both […]

Stop! Or I’ll…Dump Water On Your Head

Water Bottle

A psychiatrist I was working with was recently talking to some families about the importance of following through with so-called “parenting-threats” you make to a child. As I listened in I thought how difficult it must be to consistently do that, especially if following through with the consequence adds an element of stress or difficulty to your situation. A quick interrogation of the Google machine turned up hundreds, if not thousands, of relevant blog posts […]

Bachmann Earned Wakefield’s Vote

Vaccine

  Last week my husband was watching the CNN Republican debate in our bedroom as I sorted articles of clothing from my overflowing closet into trash and donate piles. When I caught a second between “what was I drinking when I bought this” and “did I seriously wear that” thoughts I half-listened in to the comments coming from the TV. However, when Minnesota’s 6th district representative started talking about my state and the HPV vaccine she […]

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 […]

Interviewing for Medical School

  As a member of the admission’s committee at our school and as someone who recently(ish) went through the application and interview process (twice), I get asked a lot if I have any advice for those in the midst of attempting to get into medical school. I’m a bit long winded (I know, you’re shocked), so I thought I’d write out my typical answers here to avoid pushing my Tweet count any higher than it already […]

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.
