  Is there Life Before Death?
Yeah...the new place. Can't say where it is, 'course, y'unnerstan', but...it rocks. I think one of the most critical things is that people are happy here. I mean, the people who have been here for a while. And they keep people here. Not like my last place, where people would only stay a couple of years (as attendings, I mean.) But this place--when I asked how many from the graduating class they hired, they said, "None!". And I thought, well, that's not good--the new attendings want to get away, right? No, actually...as it turns out, there were just no positions open; that lots of the graduating class would stay if they could, but there was no positions because nobody leaves because they are happy here.

I'll have to admit, I really didn't want to move...so I didn't. Now I have an hour commute, but I'm never bored, and I never wait. I figure I'll listen to my Gold Standard stuff left over from studying step 3. The pharmacology at least will still not be old. And since it is such a chore for me to study when I'm home (I'd rather watch Battlestar or The Daily Show or clean or read novels like Lois McMaster Bujold, or (hopefully) get back into Aikido or back into Guitar or talk to my GF.)

As always, more later...

Emergency medicine, from the beginning of a new doctor's career.

Location: Big City, Metropolis, United States

Walk softly and carry a big vocabulary. Don't be inhuman. Find and greet God in every person you meet. The patient is the one with the disease. Do not get distracted. Charity begins at home. Do good and be happy. Don't just do something, stand still. Wear sunscreen. Don't get anyone pregnant, and don't go to jail, young man. Budget your luxuries first. You don't know what you don't know. People like learning, they just don't like being taught. When in doubt, go out. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Honey attracts more flies than vinegar.
