I’ve read more articles by this doctor and know that I will try and avoid applying there for my prelim year. My god, what doesn’t he understand about progress? I’m sure he’s a great teacher while being a crusty curmudgeon at the same time, but this really scares me. I agree that some of medicine is suffering from over-zealous use of technology, but that’s because studies are finding that CT scans and other tests actually diagnosed patients faster and with less error than “in the good ol’ days”. But hey, we’ve got women and minorities who are doctors now! Didn’t you hear – times change because of progress, not regress.
For your reading pleasure:
These are the days
There are many more, but I don't have access. It's quite clear what this guy thinks of the current attendings, residents, and med students.
