Forty-three days until I’m a doctor!

April 21, 2010

That is all.


Open Lab

March 17, 2010

So this post is very late.

Bittersweet was accepted into Openlab 2009, which is now available at!

You can see a review here at boingboing.

Hopefully I’ll be somewhat more prolific writing starting in June or so, as I wrap up med school and get ready for the Real World.  Thanks all for bearing with me!

Kudos to Sanjay Gupta

January 19, 2010

I haven’t always been kind to Dr Gupta – on TV I generally find him too much journalist, not enough doctor.

Strangely, he’s been getting flack from journalists for being too much doctor, not enough journalist! This article refers to criticism Dr Gupta has gotten for becoming too much a part of the story he’s covering.

I have only one thing to say to this. Kudos to Dr Gupta! When push comes to shove, and lives are in danger, taking care of those most in need takes priority over the “rules” of journalism.

What’s happening in Haiti right now is tragic. If you have something to donate, help out. My charity of choice is Doctors Without Borders, you can find a link to donate to them on my sidebar.

Some of you may have noticed the complete absence of posts for the past couple of months. Life has been far beyond busy and blogging just kind of got slowly pushed to hiatus. Anyway, I’m back at least for now.

The 116th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle:The Wooful ER

July 30, 2009

It’s time for your favorite blog carnival and mine, the Skeptics’ Circle!

 I had the most horrible dream the other day. After watching a Mitchell and Webb Sketch about a homeopathic ER, I had nightmares of being trapped in an ER just chock full of Woo, and other nonskeptical gibberish.

Walk with me, through the valley of woo, in the nightmare that is the wooful ER.
