Dear Paige R.,
I think we both knew it would come to this. It's just about
over between us. But first, you are
going to listen to me for a change.
We have been together a long time. Heck, when we first
hooked up, we were perfect for each other. Back in the ‘80s, any guy looked
pretty cool with you attached to his hip. Your cute little ...
If there's any lesson I've learned in PA school, it is that
mistakes are the fertilizer to grow a healthy clinical year. This month is me
versus the OR (operating room) and if I didn't contaminate my glove, then I
accidently bumped my head into the surgeons or didn't bury the knot correctly
on my suture.
Some of these mistakes I've made ...
Graduation day is just around the corner (but who is
counting?), so I've decided to reflect back on the ''lessons learned'' during my
clinical year of PA school. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience
for me. There have been ups and downs; both were very much needed. Live and

The real tragedy of getting a medical education is not the understanding of your own mortality or quantification of personal risk factors. It's not even the fact that friends and colleagues want you to look at something awful that is growing out of their body (I was sure that was a myth). It is the loss of good television.

I am talking about New Graduate Syndrome (NGS). It affects
men and women of all ages after ...

other day, I came across a poem that was written by an older man who was living
in a nursing home. It is a touching
poem, so I've decided to share it with you. Although the poem addresses nurses
specifically, I believe that its message is to everyone, regardless of one's
profession. It is a reminder that, despite our age or ...

As I sit down to write my final blog for the year 2012 I was
struggling to come up with an appropriate topic to mark the occasion. I was
thinking back to when I first began writing this blog in 2009 and it occurred
to me that maybe I should tell you how it all started and how I came to be the
Three years ago I was still part of ...
