Open-mindedness is the other side of humility Coin

Despite medicine being an ever-changing field, it is easy to fall into dogma, guidelines, and institutional patterns . No matter what field of medicine You Practice, there are multiple ways to approach Clinical decisions and
Procedural technique. A huge tenet of training is to experiment with multiple ideas from multiple providers, and Combine them with the evidence to Create a technique or thought Process to Call your Own. An Open mind Will allow you to become greater than the Sum of your teachers
Even more importantly, Keeping an Open mind makes you a better receiver of feedback , a Skill which is absolutely essential in training. With So many Brilliant People Working together, egos at the hospital can be large. Often times, Our first response to Constructive feedback is

Confidence goes a long way in Medicine. In Our Phases of Training ,Whether as Medical Students or Residents ,We find Ourselves in an Interesting Place. We are eager to learn as much as Possible from every Clinical experience, yet because of Our titles ( or Perhaps insecurities ),
We feel absolutely Compelled to let Patient's and Colleagues know how Capable We already are. In many Ways this is a good thing. Being assured in Our abilities, both Cognitive and Procedural , Can lead to greater Successes as We Visualize Positive Outcomes; Mental Success begets
Actual Success. In addition, Patients are kept at ease by Our lack of Waffling and Unsurety. But, if we lean too far in the direction of having it all figured out ,it can have a devastating effect On Our Learning

1) There are many books on clinical medicine and most of them are horrible.

Here is my curated list.

The first and most important book has to be Dr. Boloor's text.

Well written and compiled, it has all the little snippets that Indian examiners love.

Best Indian book imo. Image
2) The book for the discerning internist.

You will love this if you are into medical history.

This is not for beginners since it often delves deep into stuff that have little knowledge of, YET! Image
3) A trusty guide.

This is best oriented for UG students though.

It is small, handy and no nonsense but lacks the trivia and snippets that you need for Indian exams, like coin percussion amd whispering pectoriloquy. Image

1) The most important aspect of a medical residency and one that I always pay great heed to --> how well you are able to follow up your patients.

I cannot overstate how vital this is.
2) A lot of residents love talking about how they have seen this case and that --> but they have no case details and have no longitudinal data on the patient.

It means nothing.
3) You discharge your patient and they never come back to you.

How will you know whether the diagnosis you have made or the treatment that you have started has yielded benefit?

Longitudinal data is crucial.

Pediatric Residency - A First Year Resident's Diary !

Joining Pediatrics ?

Welcome to this world of little wonders! 🌈👶💜
1.Memorize the new normal : To identify what's abnormal one must first know what is the normal range.Vital parameters in pediatric population for instance HR,RR,BP,CRT are very different from what we have been learning for adults.

2.Identifying a sick child : Perhaps the most important skill for a JR1.
The toxic look,excessive crying/irritability,refusal to feed,grunting,stridor,head bobbing are some of the red flags your seniors will teach you to act promptly at !

Got some time to read up a bit. So here we go -

Sustained Monomorphic Ventricular Tachycardia

CF as described in my case - hypotension, syncope & some might even be able to maintain BP
Usually VT with HR > 200 - Hypotension
<150 - can be compensated unlesd LV dysfunction
Pathophysio - usually focus is an area of fibrosis due to old infarct/inflammation or prior cardiac surgery
Rarely reentry in a diseased purkinje system.

Mechanism - Re entry circuits

1. SVT with LBBB or RBBB
2. SVT with an accessory pathway
To differentiate 👇
2/n Image
Presence of AV dissociation is a reliable marker for VT.

Definitive - electrophysiological study (idk where does this even happen)

Initial Mx - ACLS

If Hypotension, Impaired consciousness or pulmonary edema present - Synchronised DC Cardioversion.

As the #residency interview for #Match2022 wraps up, applicants often ask, how do I let programs know I really like them? how do I increase my match chances?
Not required and not sure makes a difference but if it makes you feel better do it. Most important, be honest! #MedEd(1/4)
Be honest! Do not tell a program they are your first choice if they are not, and a program canNOT ask you where you are ranking them. See here for Match Communication Code of Conduct. (2/4) #Match2022 #MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter @Inside_TheMatch…
Do NOT rank a program higher just because u think they ranked u high & u more likely to match there. Rank programs in order of YOUR TRUE PREFERENCE. The Match algorithm works to ur advantage so rank higher those u liked more even if reach. More tips… (3/4)

#MedStudents, #Residents, #Fellows, and #Research Trainees - I recently had both a resident and fellow ask me how I got involved in research and published when I was a #trainee. I thought I would share my tips and advice in this thread. #MedTwitter #ACGME #MedStudentTwitter
1. Ask yourself👉what you want from this? To pursue research as career? To boost application for #residency #fellowship #employment? To get a recommendation letter? Regardless, aim for #publication (most value). Conference talks are cool, but publications stay on CV forever!
2. Basic science research=⬆️time+lab training vs clinical research. Study designs: RCTs, prospective, retrospective, case reports, review papers. Publishing case reports+review papers are most feasible endeavors during training! Best way to boost #publication numbers.

4 years ago tomorrow would have been my 1st #residency interview, at @mghmedres. I know this because 4 years ago today my dad died unexpectedly in Denver while I was in Boston. I cancelled the interview from the tarmac at 6am the day of, and flew home.

It’s a whole 🧵
2/ This will not be a memorial thread about how much I love and miss my dad, although I do and I do. Weirdly, this is a @mghmedres appreciation and #medstudenttwitter celebration thread. Bear with me.
3/ I was home for 8 days after my dad died. In those 8 days I missed 6 interviews. 3 programs offered their sympathy and little else. The other 3 offered whatever it damn well took to get me rescheduled and to support me in doing what I needed to do - interview.

Questions to ask on your virtual #residency interview (a thread with anxious #medstudenttwitter) in mind. This recruitment season looks incredibly different and it's had to get a good sense of a place/people/program without that in person experience. These questions may help!
1) What would you describe the focus of this residency program to be? // I used this question on my interview cycle. It's helpful to hear the first word/concept brought up by people in the program. How does the PD's response compare to interns & residents? Ask: everyone.
2) What changes do you anticipate for the residency in the next few years? // I also used this question and it's helpful to get a sense of how the program (anticipates) it will change. Do they plan to grow? Are they revamping their educational curriculum? Ask: leadership.

#Tweetorial on best practices for #residency interviews

⭐️This year there will be some nuanced challenges of virtual interviewing⭐️

So it will be even more important to be intentional about #interview practices

#MedEd #MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter
Since the pros/cons of virtual interviews has been written extensively by others including @jbcarmody in his blog post below, I won’t cover it here
What do we hope to learn about applicants during interviews?

🎯Get to know the applicant beyond what’s in the file
🎯Part of the holistic review
⭐️Communication skills
⭐️Professional interests
⭐️Goals, values, aspirations

AND give them a chance to learn about the program

#Hahnemann is a cautionary tale of for-profit companies plundering a #SafetyNetHospital for a land deal. After speaking with several former physician trainees and the Internal Medicine PD @DaveAizenberg. The stories were disheartening. We must do better. #HahnemannStories 1/
#Hahnemann #tweetorial-In all the talk of policy changes and corporate malfeasance, the personal impact cannot be undersold. One story that needs to be shared is that of Erika Correa (permission given to share her experience). #HahnemannStories #medtwitter #MembersMoveMedicine 2/
Dr. Correa was starting #HemeOnc fellowship orientation at #Hahnemann when the closure was announced on June 26. She was suddenly without a program, funding, or health insurance. She had bought a house in Philadelphia, planning to stay at least 3 more years. #medtwitter 3/

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

10 things IMG (and USMG) applicants should know for the 2020 residency MATCH: I can’t help but recall how stressful the application journey was one year ago. I hope this thread helps out (instead of adding stress)! @ERAS @AAMC
Build your CV: it helps as you are requesting letters from mentors, or basically any email you're sending. Have a clear CV that speaks of your accomplishments. Do not miss a certificate or work in progress. Here is a link to how to do a cover letter.
Before programs see your application & statement letter, look at it yourself. Know your goals, or at least outlines of your goals. Know your weaknesses and SHOW that you are working on them. Practice your ONE LINER. This will improve your statement letter and application.

Thread: Tell me about the good times (#residency)
1/Obviously, so many threads about the tough times in training. Neg experiences, disrespect, fatigue, depression. I began to wonder if I had imagined having a great residency experience. How could mine have been so different?
2/I wouldn't put it past me to have amnesia about the whole thing. So I texted some of my co-residents? Was I seeing things thru rose-colored goggles? Nope-they all said "Great time and Hard Work." Which is what I recall. With so many new interns preparing to start....
3/ Can you share with me some of the good times you remember? Because we surely don't want them all to start a new experience expecting doom and gloom. #MedTwitter #Twitternist #ProudToBeGIM #TipsForNewDocs

every year I give my #neurology residents a very personal talk on how I sought to overcome #burnout during #residency. I call it “finding the good.” I gave that talk to my residents today, and it contains my core beliefs as a clinician educator. #meded 🧠
(these are some realizations that helped me, and your mileage with them will vary. not all will resonate with all, of course. I welcome your comments, anecdotes, and additions. but, for what it’s worth, here are my educational mantras)
“finding the good” is a creative, proactive endeavor composed of generosity of spirit, cognizance of the gravity of others’ situations, deep listening, and creative thinking. there are no protocols or algorithms for finding the good, though a few pointers follow...
