Is MBBS Becoming a Vestigial Degree?

“There are, in truth, no specialties in medicine, since to know fully many of the most important diseases a man must be familiar with their manifestations in many organs.” —William Osler, The Army Surgeon, Medical News, Philadelphia, 64:318, 1894. The focus of the modern day medical student has shifted from the broad to the specific.… Keep Reading

Menage-a-Trois: Download, Print, Keep, Share

I have received several requests for a printable version of my previous post. Since I did not realize that it would become so popular (relatively speaking), I did not upload the original PDF document that I printed out for myself.

Menage-a-Trois

What Flies in KVPY: A Sample Project

I have been getting a deluge of requests to post some examples of the type of projects that have been selected. While it is a bit of a chore to track down the folks who got through and ask them for their project abstracts (most people are not so open minded about handing out unpublished… Keep Reading

Gender Bias + Ignorance = DANGEROUS Patients?

Oh well, just read this post, and had to come write about it before sitting down to study for the night. The issue the author raises on the blog is a VERY important one, but dilutes it with her abject ignorance. The basic premise of the post is the right to choose physicians of a… Keep Reading
