Packing is a grown-up chore I strongly dislike doing. While I’m happy to be going home I hate the build up associated with the trip. Regardless, this time tomorrow I’ll be a snug as a bug under a far more responsible roof.
The Dichotomy of Diagnosis.
A classmate of mine sent this to me to my amusement. I have written in the past about my feelings on the importance of a good physical exam but sometimes it does make you wonder if it is worth doing. In medicine, they continuously tell you to “treat the patient, and not the numbers;” I think that expression extends to this realm too. There is something to be said about a physician’s clinical experience and the ability to assess patients through the five senses that a machine simply cannot translate to you. Instead, machines should act as a supplement to your own clinical abilities.

Cold weather. Warm tea. Good books. Perfect combination missing only this song.
I laugh a lot.
Nice to meet you.
I rarely write. I don’t reflect. And yet I find myself on tumblr.
3 things to know before we begin this journey:
1) I have poor time management.
2) I really enjoy medicine.
3) I love lions.
What you can take from this: expect rare and sporadic posts involving cancer, disease, peds and lions interspersed with things I think are cool.
