Generally agree, but there's a distinction between: 1) Making specific armchair diagnoses 2) Pointing out that something is non-specifically wrong with the person

That was one of the things that sold us (or at least me) on it! That and the fact it wasn't an architectural and design disaster. Unfortunately, it will increase my commute time 500% and gas consumption much more than that.

And of course, whether labeled as fib or isthmus-independent flutter, patient has CHB with prob junctional escape and likely severe conduction disease rather than a ventricular escape rhythm (which is still possible, but the diff prob wouldn't significantly impact management).

I understand why some are labeling this flutter, but I think the waves are too irregular in morphology, and IMHO this is better described as coarse a-fib. I suppose V1 could be artifact, but no obvious P waves in the remaining leads argues against that.

The challenge is that, excluding at the VA, most of us have no idea what our physician colleagues are paid.

I wouldn't worry about it. As "elective" PCIs decline into rarity, you'll be stealing more and more of the cool stuff from the surgeons.

LMWH/DOAC >> UFH in acute VTE. UFH (vs LMWH) has: ⬇️effective blood thinning (remember when you couldn't get the PTT > 40 for the first 24h?) ⬆️bleeding (remember that first PTT coming back >150?) All this borne out in trials (+/- ⬆️mortality). Oh, and 10x rate of HITT. 1/2

😰😱 I didn't know things like this were going on. This is terrible and makes me very sad. This can't be what looks like?

It only took 40 years - the true story behind the old story of a resident who challenged a brilliant surgeon asking if he'd subjected his surgery to a clinical trial. Infuriated, he said "If i did that, half of my patients would die" to which the resident responded: "Which half?"

They are things that are potentially prone to an applicant going the extra mile without empathy or passion for the sake of making their app stronger, but among the students I've interacted with here (not necessarily a fair sample), they have all seemed quite genuine. 2/2

I think it's prob somewhere in between. What's made it so competitive isn't so much the MCAT and GPA, but rather undergrad research/pubs and other"extras" (e.g. extraordinary volunteer work). 1/

To every curmudgeony, old-timey doctor who complains about the quality and work ethic of today's medical students, I say this: If I were to apply to medical school today with the same qualifications I had in 1998, the probability that I would be accepted anywhere would be ~0%.
