Real Med. Students of Genius [Nov. 20th, 2006|10:44 pm]

I don't know how far reaching certain Bud Light commercials go but we've been hearing these funny musical ones for quite some time. Well someone got the brilliant idea to create "Real Med. Students of Genius" versions complete with the funny singing.

My favorites are Mr. Always Prepared for Everything Guy and Mr. Bad with Children Guy. :D

I noticed the community didn't have any userpics. Might I suggest:

You can't get geekier than Dr. Mario!

Greetings Earthlings! [Oct. 22nd, 2006|01:20 am]

Hello. I am technically not in the medical field...yet. I'm wanting to enter nursing and I also study a lot with lenapie. I've been helping her study her med stuff since last year and I find it incredibly interesting. I'm going to be moving across state lines to go to a good school. It's going to take me at least a year to be able to apply for the nursing program, but it'll be all worth it. lenapie reminds me that after 20 years, nobody is going to care if I started nursing school in 2008, or 2009. I look forward to entering the medical field.

I have a degree in Network Engineering, but after I got it, I realized that my interest in computers wasn't as strong as my interest in the scientific/medical field. I even got a "Physical Diagnosis" book for my birthday that recently passed. I've been reading it as I play a turn-based strategy game called "Age of Wonders : Shadow Magic". I've also picked up some used textbooks at the local bookstore. I just can't get enough of this stuff. Between gaming, anime, and other typical geek stuff (as well as having great friends) is all that I need in my life. I look forward to having fun here.

You Are What You Eat [Oct. 21st, 2006|04:09 pm]
Geeks In Medicine and Friends


This line form Nutritionist Gillian McKeith in the TV show “You Are What You Eat” had us in stitches:


“If you don’t kill off your family with those fatty foods

You’re going to finish them off with your farts!”


But it got us thinking… has anyone ever really died from farts?

...you've ever drawn arterial blood gases and, upon receiving results, started humming that remix of "All your base are belong to us."

This is cool! (audio,video,worksafe)

You get extra geekpoints for recognizing all the stuff in the video without cheating and reading about it first. (crossposted to culfinriel)

PGY-2 General Surgery.

I've downed Onyxia while on in-house call.

(And swapped call to make sure we'd see Serenity on opening night.)

introducing myself [Oct. 14th, 2006|01:10 pm]

Hi all,
I'm a fourth-year med student going into emergency medicine and freaking out about the whole process of applying :). I'm mainly into anime and manga (FMA, Saiyuki, Rurouni Kenshin, Loveless), but I also enjoy reading sci-fi/fantasy, Douglas Adams, umm... and anything else that catches my fancy. Princess Bride is, of course, one of the greatest movies of all time. :D

So, I have a question for all of you: I've heard so much about Monty Python but I've never actually seen any of the sketches or movies (GASP! I know, I know, what kind of person am I). I was wondering if you all had any recommendations as far as which ones are the best or what I should rent first. Thanks!

Hi! I'm Grey, 5th year medstudent from Northern Europe. At first I'd like to clarify our system of education that differs from the US/UK one...

You can apply to medschool straight after you graduate from highschool (at the tender age of 18). First two years are pre-clinical: anatomy, physiology, biochem, microbiology, pathology etc. Then the 3rd-6th years are clinical medicine education+rotations: internal medicine, surgery, OB-GYN, neurology, oncology etc. After graduation you have to work a total of 2 years at a primary healthcare center (PHC) before you are licenced medical doctor. So it's 8 years in total.

THEN if/when you want to specialize in your field of liking it's + 5-6 years more of work. So if you were interested in orthopedics+traumatology (they are a joined specialty around here) like I am, I would apply to a surgical program and work for 5-6 years under education. So I'd be turned from a high school graduate to an independent specialized surgeon in 14 years.

How does that sound? :)

So, as I said, I'm on my 5th year, struggling with OB-GYN at the moment. Last summer I had the privilige to work as an replacement for a PHC physician for 2 months during holiday. (We're leaglly allowed to do so after 4th year as long as there is an older collegue for consults.)
My ultimate fandom is the new series of BSG. I live and breathe mostly for another Friday to come :) Obsession doesn't even come close to what I feel towards that particular series. Last year before Christmas I got hooked and watched the whole of season 1 + the already aired episodes of season 2 one after another when I was supposed to study for neurology finals. I was totally hooked.

Ok, now I've revealed my geeky secrets...Feel free to add me.
