1/8 Friday night, a light thread on the most exclusive Chinese medical school, started by Americans 100 years ago. It’s a piece of US-China history I want my own kids to know.
2/8 Like income inequality, China university resources are not as equal as in the US. There are top 2 universities (Peking U&Tsing Hua) that everyone agrees among top 2, with the rest vying for the third.
3/8 Peking Union Medical College协和. Each year it admits about 100 students, with 1-3 student from each of 31 provinces, except Beijing having a higher quota of 20. In 1993, My father said he would have gone crazy if I got in. He didn’t go crazy.

1/ 🧵

Time for a #tweetorial on simple #ECG interpretation

When I learned to read ECGs, my biggest fear was to miss an important finding!
To avoid that: Be systematic❗️

My simple approach to ECGs with 8 steps 🪜👇

#medicalstudent #education #cardiotwitter #medtwitter #EPeeps

‼️ All following ECGs are with paper speed of 25 mm/s and a signal gain of 10 mm/mV ‼️

1 small square = 40 ms
1 big square = 200 ms

Now we are ready to read the ECG systematically

1⃣ Rhythm

Sinus rhythm or abnormal rhythm?
(Also note if regular or irregular)

Normal: One P-wave precedes each QRS complex (sinus rhythm)

Interpret from the lead that shows the P-wave most clearly (usually lead II)

#Thread #Saturday #Education

Let's read a little about the education system in India and some statistics about ongoing education system.
But I have question, is being literate is also being educated? If, answer is no, what's the parameter of education today? Do we need Gurukul?
Swami Vivekananda rightly said about education once: “Education is the manifestation of perfection already in the men.” But again question rises how to define perfection. There is a famous quote that no body is perfect. But when it comes to education perfection can be defined.
Indian education system dates back to Vedic times. We had Gurus like Vashisth, Vishwamitra, Dronacharya, Kashyap & many more. Gurukul was residential schooling & origin dates back to around 5000 BC. Even if history has been moulded girls were also educated in those times.

1/ As a #teacher, I'm going to get slammed for this heresy, but you deserve to know the truth about "Social-Emotional Learning" (SEL) in #education. An increasing number of parents have raised their eyebrows at the introduction of yet another framework #schools are pushing on
2/ their children. Advocates of SEL have pounced on parental skepticism, insisting that "it's just about teaching social and emotional skills." This is what drives me crazy about education: intellectual dishonesty. Educators consistently masquerade political ideology in benign
3/ and euphemistic language because they know the public would never willingly let their children be instructed as future activists. SEL is NOT merely about teaching children better social and emotional skills. It is a framework meant- in part- to encourage "critical social

1/I have joined Twitter under a pseudonym because this tweet makes my blood boil. #Homophobic #bullying, which went unchallenged at primary and secondary school, is what led to my daughter declaring she was a boy. Only then she was protected.
2/Only then was there #safeguarding. But it was I who was seen as the safeguarding risk. Her rapid #mentalhealth decline was not of interest. Because #transgender children are magical and special. #safeguarding no longer applies.
3/Our #stonewalldiversitychampion school told me I was the problem: a bigot, a fantasist, a danger to my child. Our #GP did not help, our #MP did not help, our #localcouncil did not help. Instead they recommended parenting courses, for me.

Juste avant la #rentree2021, le ministère de l’Éducation nationale vient de publier ses statistiques annuelles. L’occasion de faire le point, graphiques à l’appui, sur l’état du #servicepublic d’#education à partir des données publiées : 1/12 ⤵️
Les écoles d'abord. Chaque année depuis + de 10 ans, le ministère ferme plus d'écoles publiques qu'il n'en ouvre. Depuis la rentrée 2009, plus de 4700 écoles ont fermé. Les écoles se raréfient et grossissent. Dans le même temps, le privé gagne 400 écoles. 2/12
En collège, c'est le nombre moyen d'élèves par classe (le E/D, élèves par division) qui augmente depuis + de 10 ans. C'est la conséquence directe des suppressions de postes successives dans le second degré. → En 10 ans, +1,1 élève en moyenne par classe. 3/12

From rejecting a seven-figure job to building India’s largest platform for financial education,

Here’s the story behind my entrepreneurial journey so far.
I graduated from IIM Indore in 2008 and got placed in JP Morgan. Having a zeal to do something in the #education sector, I didn't take that #job, to start up a new venture of my own.
During that time CAT went online. I started my own venture- FireUp, an e-learning portal for training for #management entrance examinations.
