    Rotations Labor Day 2021…We are Back…

    Rotations Labor Day 2021…We are Back…

    Talk about inertia, as the saying goes, when I was young, I wanted to be old…I didn’t expect this.

    It took a full month to get my head back on-line after the trip to the Middle East. But now the brain is working and so I’ll get started by bringing you up to speed. We have a new medical school. It’s very niiiiice. I also want to get some stuff out there about Afghanistan and the implications for medical care. Yes, there are very direct implications for how we do medicine in the USA.

    So I am going to riff for your commute and then we will find some super stellar people with big ideas to come on and chat about their things. In the meantime, listen and if you like what you hear, send feedback. If you have questions, send feedback. If you don’t like what you hear, send feedback, politely worded please because I will read the comments with non-attribution.

    So there is a lot of overlap between Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and Schrodinger, his famous cat and observer effect. I’ll let you sort those out for yourself.

    So Happy Labor Day!.

    I am glad to be back.

    Bryant Giles DO , Ophthalmology Episode III

    Bryant Giles DO , Ophthalmology Episode III

    Yes, its long but not so long that I could have split this easily into 2 episodes.

    The last episode of my conversation with Bryant Giles, DO. Today we are going to discuss EHRs and ophthalmology. Fun huh? Nope. But if you are considering a career in medicine you really need to think about how much of a headache you want in your daily work. It’s a Don Quixote task at this point because we have been complaining about them for nearly a decade now and crickets from the people who don’t care for patients but tell us this is absolutely necessary…

    Bryant has a You Tube channel. The Eye Chiefs https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqMAxQbK1jLNGju_S_51NLg

    Bryant has a website. Surgery with Dr. Giles https://www.surgerywithdrgiles.com/meet-dr-giles

    I am feeling pretty inadequate right now as I write this…

    The best part of this series is the clear message that serendipity plays a big role in life. You start thinking you want to do one thing, but you end up finding out just where you should be…

    AMOPS https://amops.org/ don’t be a stranger, we would welcome any civilian medical student or physician as well…and that includes MDs.

    Bryant Giles DO , Ophthalmology Episode II

    Specialty Spotlight

    Okay, let’s see if I can finish this series out of pure respect for you in the audience and for Bryant. In this episode we discuss the common diagnoses within the specialty and training. We also put a shout out (in?) for Brooke Army Medical Center and its world renowned burn center in good old San Antonio, Texas.

    We finish up with a discussion of technology and advances.

    Bryant Giles DO Ophthalmology Episode 1

    Bryant Giles DO Ophthalmology Episode 1

    Bryant Giles DO is a senior Ophthalmology Resident and he never intended to be an ophthalmologist. In this series we are going to discuss how plans change and how life leads us to opportunities that we would never have considered without the serendipity of life.

    Bryant focuses on his specialty but along the way we discuss life and different universities and how it all comes together. We also discuss Utah which is a place that everyone should experience.

    It’s a Specialty Spotlight series but its valuable for any medical student, premed or older physicians who want to find something different because they are not fulfilled in what they are currently doing.

    I also asked Bryant about his lifestyle in the military. He assured me that he is “doing fine on his current pay.” Ad reiterated the truism of living like a resident after residency as a means of finding a stable financial position. That’s wisdom that I was taught as well and it was invaluable.
