Keep Studying and Get that MBBS!

I am working very hard at what I want in life to get away from where I don’t want to be.


“Keep studying and get that M.D.”

Still relevant. 
This is the meme by ZDoggMD that inspired my most recent post on Future M.D.… 
Chiropractors have to hold a Doctorate in Chiropratic to “practice” but they are NOT medical doctors.
Essentially, a chiropractor “prescribes” natural/homeopathic remedies. For example, some utilize a “Sarapin” injection for lower back pain management. I decided to read peer-reviewed medical journals regarding the benefits of “Sarapin”. Take a look for yourself at the papers on Sarapin on PubMed.
REMEMBER: my opinions are my own, I am not bashing chiropractors, and this should not be construed as medical advice! Speak to your physician.
Adventures in White Coat Culture: Who’s the Doctor?

There are numerous clinical practitioners and medical support staff in medical facilities: doctors, nurses, students, assistants, ecetera–-So, it is crucial that professionals identify who they are at all times.

Pediatricians! Sometimes, apart of me just melts when I think of how cool it would be to be a pediatrician. Then the other part of me thinks of projectile poop and vomit and the way babies flip out when you try to take a head circumference. 😤
This is Atul Gawande, MD. Some people look up to Kim Karcrash and Lindsay Lohan but we (#medstudent, #premed, #postbacc) have amazing physicians, nurses, and awesome allied health.
“Aspiring doctors quickly learn whose opinions, experiences and voices count, and it is rarely their own.” - Pauline W. Chen, MD “Afraid to Speak Up to Medical Power” (#NYTimes)  ➡ The thing I learned about medicine is it is almost second nature to have to learn how to lose yourself to medical hierarchy. 😞

Imhotep & The Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus

The Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus is a translated medical text supposedly authored by an Ancient Egyptian physician, Imhotep (Father of Medicine). It contains 48 systematically arranged case histories that include the type of the injury, examination of the patient, diagnosis and prognosis, and treatment.

This Ancient Egyptian text is of special importance to medicine because it is one of the first medical texts to contain non-magical explanations for human anatomy and medical disorders.
