...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
Ethical considerations.
Spent two weeks as Chief of Medicine recently, which is a sort of junior faculty position. You spend a lot of time seeing patients, and you're supposed to teach the other residents. It's a great way to learn just how much you don't know about medicine.

Two case studies to talk about, both from what I learned and from the questions they present...

F came into the hospital via EMS after being found unresponsive on the sidewalk. The story he gave us the first day was not so simple. "About a week ago I got a letter from the PNA, inviting me to a firing squad..."

...OK, wasn't supposed to auto-post from LJ mobile yet. I'll try and finish the story this weekend...

It looks like it did. I'll bug her about it. ;)

I know this story. It's a good one.
