Physician Work-life Balance in the Modern Era of Medicine

Whether or not physician work-life balance is possible, it is highly coveted. Younger generations of doctors (those 35 years old and younger) and an increasingly female workforce have spearheaded this movement towards balance. Women make up about half of all medical students and residents and many – along with an increasing number of their male colleagues – value raising a family and pursuing other life interests.

Managing Patients with Big Shot Syndrome

Dealing with Entitled Patients

Self-restraint is one of the most-practiced and valuable skills in my repertoire. I stood in the exam room with her, hands in the pockets of my white coat.

Trick Question: What’s the Answer to Drug Abuse?

Is there an answer to drug abuse?

From thousands of years ago to now, we harvested the opium poppy and eventually the morphine molecule to give the LC some competition.

Changing Times and Changing Minds – A Post for Future Physicians

In my dad’s time, I know he did hysterectomies, appendectomies, vein stripping, colon surgery, proctology, and many other things that just having his diploma and a knife qualified him for. True, it was a pretty good diploma as diplomas go, but today we know that you can’t know everything about everything.

Why Is EHR Interoperability So Difficult?

Here is the reason electronic health record interoperability is so difficult

The point of the blame game isn’t to persecute the players, but to understand the dynamics of interoperability issues, in order to create solutions. Of the stakeholders, only policymakers have a clear, strong interest in promoting interoperability.
