Work has been busy. I’ve been doing all sorts of stuff related with Swine Flu. I haven’t had time to write anything, so instead here are some links to articles I have read recently (big reader of NYTimes anyone?) and also some links to useful study websites. Hopefully this will be stimulating and help with your school work. Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve working on another project for now that’s taking most of my time.
One thing I’ve found is the more I learn about medicine, the more I have to know than just the science, pathology and clinical skills. Medicine is truly an art – a combination of communication skills, leadership, management, negotiation tactics and patient compassion. There’s also many fields that you must be aware of like public health, political advocacy, career-lifestyle challenges and health economics, even if they are not your areas of expertise. It’s challenging but also rewarding.
