I had a meltdown today in front of my attending advisor. She said, “Madison, I am so, so, so glad that you are here at our residency program.” And honestly that was enough to turn my day around and keep me going. A little encouragement goes a long way!

I completed medical school 4 years ago. So I would like to discuss how learning cultural competency and advocating for social justice are VERY relevant to my career. And I'm a dermatologist and aspiring physician scientist. THREAD

Student, if you're going into medicine to get rich, forget it. My lawyer and accountant friends earn several times what I do. They buy classic cars and airplanes; I drive old Nissans. At the end of the day, it's a calling; I went into it to love and serve, I've no regrets.

If, as a clinician, you have learned how to pronounce the word meningoencephalocele (or hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, or whatever) you can 💯% learn to pronounce the name of your patient, colleague, or trainee. I believe in you.

Having attended many student events now- is anyone else getting annoyed with the 'let me tell you how hard I did it and why your generation will never be trained as well as my generation' talk? 1. It's not true 2. It's not true 3. It's not true 🦕🦖

"In patients with a normal thoracic ultrasound, CXR never provided any actionable clinical information" Time to ditch CXR?🤔

Since med schools are still failing to teach GPs about ME, I'm sending one item of research or publication on ME every month to all the GPs at my surgery. Got a good list of things but recommendations welcome. Next month: ICC primer. 😁

Tip of the Day: You'll get a better answer if you ask: "What questions can I answer for you?" or "What concerns do you have?" at end of visit instead of the more common: "Do you have any questions or concerns?" Patients seem more satisfied too🙂

Finished my 1st set of nights as surgical SHO. Very grateful for my registrars Ms Creamer & Ms Wong in colorectal surgery and urology who were extremely supportive and made time to teach me despite some high pressured situations. A great unit at the WGH. Feeling great 🥰

Nothing restores my optimism for medicine like hosting 20 students for a home cooked meal and hanging out. Med students these days are undaunted by the past and unwilling to maintain the status quo. I believe in them! ❤️

How to make a great case conference: - pick a case with a tough decision - call expert discussant - give them info - don't hide info. eliminate extraneous info. Make it "easy" - pose pointed ❔ about topic. Give voice to people who disagree, encourage debate. - listen!
