I really don't understand what does it mean and what is a form of this essay. <br /><br />Can somebody help me with it?<br /><br />Thanks<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19500"></a><hr /> Thu Oct 18, 2018 2:28 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19500#p71445 The Future of Medical Education http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19129#p71436 by IMNOTDRPHIL (Posted Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:27 pm)<br/>The future of medical education is a giant topic.<br /><br />My situation is that I am 16 years past the applying to medical school stage that many of the forum visitors here are experiencing. I got accepted to the main medical school in my state, went through residency in family medicine (by choice as I wanted to "be a real doctor," and now, boy do I regret it!), and have been in practice since graduating. <br /><br />I also know and routinely correspond with people who are well known in the educational policy community. I have not personally published work in that discipline, but have collaborated with those that did and have merited mention in their works. I would have personally published but since I am in full-time practice, I don't have the time to do it myself. I am published in the medical scientific literature multiple times.<br /><br />The current state of medical education is that it is highly inefficient and like much of postsecondary and graduate education, largely geared towards supporting the large, bloated, minimally-accountable institutions that administer it and saddling you with debt at way above market interest rates that will plague you for a long time. Residency is similar, very inefficient, abusive, but benefits the sponsoring hospital and CMS greatly. <br /><br />The fact that you have to be directly supervised during everything you do during 3rd and 4th years of medical school, much of what you do during intern year, and some of what you do later, and still have to present nearly all cases to your attending until you finish residency, guarantees that you get a decent education, even with the large amount of extraneous stuff like OB and hospital medicine. I currently work in an ambulatory clinic and moonlight frequently in an urgent care which is really a fast-track ED not subject to EMTALA (we have a full lab, US/CT, and patients are routinely direct admitted for acute abdomens, MIs, etc. from the UC.) Last hospital patient I managed was in residency and same with the last OB delivery I did. That's 2 years or so I wasted on that crap that I never use. <br /><br />However, go out into practice and you are considered equivalent to somebody who took 3 semesters of online courses and stood in a corner of a room while some other midlevel malpracticed for a few weeks, and boom, they're a midlevel and considered equivalent to you by the MBAs that you have to work for, since the government essentially made it impossible for you to go into practice for yourself and be able to pay back your mortgage's worth of federal student loans. <br /><br />My highly educated opinion is that the ONLY thing worth doing in medicine is to be a proceduralist, and if you don't want to do that, go through the easy, short, cheap, and often online midlevel programs and earn nearly all that a physician does, but without the 20,000+ hours of abuse 3rd and 4th year medical students and residents endure, and also without the $300k in debt. Do your 300 hours of midlevel observership and pay your $40k in tuition and make 2/3 of what a non-proceduralist physician makes and without the legal liability to boot. And when you screw up, the sucker of a physician who makes only a little more than you but has 7 times the amount of loans gets sued, not you. Midlevels also only work 40 hours a work for full-time work, physicians work 55+ hours on average. I work 55 hours a week and am considered part-time, full time results in 70 hours a week of work once you consider in all of the computer box-checking that occurs before and after when the clinic is open. You cannot get paid for that, but you absolutely do get sued/fired/fined if you do not do it. <br /><br />The future of medical education is that if the current trends continue, the only physicians will be surgeons and procedural specialists as midlevels of various sorts (including pharmacists and such) and rationing by waiting will take over the rest. There will be a small niche for actual physicians who know what they are doing to see cash-pay patients outside of the horribly broken system, but it's a small niche and requires a decent population of wealthy patients (DPC.) The only salvation for actual physicians (primary care) will be if the current system collapses and people have to decide between paying a large group of specialists a bunch of money for each one of their many visits to see each specialist periodically, or paying a highly skilled primary care physician such as I am one payment periodically to manage their multiple chronic diseases. <br /><br />I don't count on sanity returning for several decades as history has demonstrated that the government won't give up on a failed idea until it absolutely and completely collapses (see: Venezuela.) Therefore I am trying to live frugally, pay off debt, invest wisely, and try to limp through this as best as I can. I have two kids and my wife (who is also a primary care physician) have discussed we will strongly discourage our children from going into medicine unless most or all of the post-1965 federal medical legislation is repealed.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19129"></a><hr /> Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:27 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19129#p71436 Dyslipidemias Mnemonics http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=19492#p71430 by david_w (Posted Mon Aug 27, 2018 8:06 am)<br/>Hi guys I am a current 4th year medical student at Cornell, and I wanted to share some visual mnemonics I have been working on for the apolipoproteins and dyslipidemias.

The answer to this question is not so simple.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16681"></a><hr /> Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:37 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16681#p71420 Guide to Nurse Job Interview http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19365#p71415 by JamesMarkham (Posted Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:24 pm)<br/>CNA jobs are in high demand due to the fact that people will always require medical patient care. Even in a bad economy with high unemployment, nursing assistants are needed due to the shortage in the job place. As with any job nursing job search, applicants must have a plan in place. Before starting your search, applicants should have their cna certification and license. In addition, applicants should have nursing work experience. Finding the right nursing assistant position is the next step. Working hard and preparing towards getting a nursing job that is a good fit will ultimately lead to success.<br /><br />Here are Additional CNA Job Search Tips<br /><br />Prepare a custom resume suited for the job listing. Be sure to add your skills and work experience. For skills, add things that make you stand out and are pertinent to the job. Also, instead of listing job responsibilities, try to turn them into how your work benefited your employer.<br /><br />Research your potential employer. Knowing a lot about your employer not only demonstrates your interest but also that you are organized and prepared. Doing the proper homework before an interview will clearly set you apart from other candidates.<br /><br />Network with people in the medical profession. Health workers know are familiar with their medical facility and can introduce you to a nursing position or at the very least refer you to human resources. Nurses have contacts with colleagues on other floors, so they may put you in touch with a hospital department that needs CNAs.<br /><br />Find different sources for job listings. Good job sources include nursing publications and job websites. Some of the most popular nursing magazines include The Nurse Practitioner Magazine and Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! Magazine. Good job search websites include monster.com, indeed.com, and nursingjobs.com. If there is a job that seems like a good fit, send a customized cover letter, resume, and application if necessary. If you are unable to get an interview, try to go to an informational interview. That will help get your foot in the door.<br /><br />Use your school’s career center where you received your CNA certification. The career center is a good resource during your job search and can introduce you to a listing jobs from local employers. The career counselor can also give you advice to your career and goals.<br /><br />Seek out local nursing homes and hospitals. There are some instances when CNA jobs are not publicly listed. It may be necessary go to the medical facility and reach out to the manager of human resources. The hiring manager may give you an interview if there is an opening or keep your file on hand and inform you when there is a position.<br /><br />Reach out to to your friends and family. They may know people who needs care or they may be able to contact people within their network for you. Even if friends and family are not in the nursing or health care field, they can often provide useful leads.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19365"></a><hr /> Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:24 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19365#p71415 medical college http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19272#p71413 by nupur343 (Posted Tue Jul 24, 2018 2:27 am)<br/>A List of Best Medical Colleges in India :<br /><br />1.Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences<br />2.Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences<br />3.Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences<br />4.Stanley Medical College<br />5.St. John's Medical College<br />6.Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19272"></a><hr /> Tue Jul 24, 2018 2:27 am http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19272#p71413 Study Tips & Strategies for the NEW MCAT http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19137#p71412 by nupur343 (Posted Mon Jul 23, 2018 1:19 am)<br/>Top 10 MCAT Tips for Studying<br /><br />1. Do practice questions.<br /><br />This is an obvious one. The MCAT is not a test of pure memorization. Instead, it’s a test of your ability to apply your knowledge of scientific concepts to novel scenarios and think critically about newly introduced information. Practice problems are the best way to hone these skills <br /><br />2.ake practice tests.<br /><br />The MCAT is a long exam. You have 6 hours and 15 minutes of test-taking time and another hour or so of breaks. You need to take practice tests to build up the mental stamina to maintain focus throughout the exam. Pacing on the MCAT is also a major challenge for many students. You can’t learn how to pace from doing a handful of passages at a time. You need to take full-length MCAT practice tests.<br /><br />We’ve previously spoken about how Khan Academy is a great resource for your MCAT preparation. Watch the videos and do the practice the problems they offer. It’s all free and a great supplement for your MCAT studies.<br /><br />3. Use good material.<br /><br />Khan Academy is great but you need additional MCAT study resources. The best is from the creators of the MCAT, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). You want to get your hands on every practice test and practice question you can from the AAMC. These questions come from old MCAT exams. They will be closer to your actual MCAT than any other source. The problem is that the AAMC hasn’t released too many questions, so you’ll want to supplement the AAMC material with other study resources <br /><br />4. Take the MCAT when you are ready.<br /><br />If you know you aren’t ready, don’t take the test. If you don’t know if you are ready, take practice tests. If none of your test scores are remotely close to your target score, you’re not ready. One of the biggest mistakes pre-medical students make is to rush their MCAT studies. Some students get lucky but others not so much. If you are not ready for the exam, there is nothing wrong with postponing your exam and giving yourself more time to study.<br /><br />5.Review Content.<br /><br />Students have to apply their knowledge of science to answer questions on the MCAT. Needless to say, you need to review your science content to do this.<br /><br />6. Study with Friends.<br /><br />Very few (if any) students would say that studying for the MCAT is enjoyable. Studying with friends can make the process less isolating and maybe (just maybe) a little fun.<br /><br />7. Keep yourself busy on the side.<br /><br />If your plan is to study for the MCAT 12 hours a day and do nothing else with your life, you are going to be sad. Don’t do it. Keep yourself busy with other activities. Get more research, volunteer, or clinical experience while you study. It will help keep you sane while improving your medical school application.<br /><br />8. Give yourself deadlines with a study schedule.<br /><br />There is an enormous amount of content that you need to review for the MCAT. Plus, there are a number of practice tests that you are going to want to take. As you can imagine, it is easy to fall behind in your MCAT studies. A study schedule can help with this. By setting yourself deadlines, you know when you need to put in extra time when you are following behind. Additionally, it also tells you if your MCAT test date is realistic.<br /><br />9. Give yourself time.<br /><br />As we described in When Should I Take the MCAT?, there is no minimum number of hours that students need to study to do well on the exam. That being said, you do need time to study. Think about all how much time you need to review content, do practice questions, and take practice tests. If your schedule does not give you time to do all of that, you need to rethink your approach.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19137"></a><hr /> Mon Jul 23, 2018 1:19 am http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19137#p71412 What Career Opportunities are Available in Public Health http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393#p71401 by nupur343 (Posted Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:31 pm)<br/>Health Care Careers are divided into five pathways - Therapeutic Services, Diagnostic Services, Support Services, Health Informatics, and Biotechnology Research and Development.<br /><br />Career Opportunities :<br /><br />Highest Paying Public Health Degrees -<br /><br />1.HEALTH AND SAFETY ENGINEER<br />2.ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTISTS<br />3.HEALTHCARE ADMINISTRATOR<br />4.BIOSTATISTICIAN<br />5.EPIDEMIOLOGIST<br />6.DOCTORATE DEGREE HOLDERS<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393"></a><hr /> Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:31 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393#p71401 MCAT study plan + practice test advice http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=18640#p71399 by Babot (Posted Thu Jul 12, 2018 3:58 am)<br/>Thank you!
