Yep! RDN I guess now they're calling it. Because people don't know what a dietitian is, but they know what a nutritionist is. Although a nutritionist does not have to have all of the biochemistry and science that a dietitian does. Let alone the "internship" that is essentially a one yr residency without pay. It's hard to get into as well. If I'd have realized the pressure was the same, I might have just stayed on the MD path. I actually just learned that RD's are pretty scare. There are 6 in one of the main hospitals that has around 300 beds. That is seriously underrated. I mean think if all of then had to have EN or PN as their only source of food. You'd need more than 6!
What do you think you want to do? Or do you not decide until after residency? It's been so long since I hung out with med students I can't remember. Most of my friends are in their residencies or MD's by now. :( I'm a late bloomer I guess!
French is easy, Japanese is nuts. Don't do it!
No complaints from me.
No worries! School for me has been intense this month so I haven't really been around much either.
Everyone told me not to take Japanese, but I didn't listen...
Plus there are a lot of papers this semester. I hate group work projects!!!
Are you still in school or just doing residency now? I don't even want to apply for my internship for clinical rotations :( It seems too stressful. RD not MD tho ;)
How's life been treating you?
Thanks for the add Doc.
Hi Hi! Sorry for getting you into a weird spot before.
I hope you are away studying and learning! Come back soon!
You got it, doc.
Thanks for showing me uptodate.com; had no idea that such a resource existed. And here I was thinking every physician had to a literature crawl on their own in order to stay current. But here, you have experts doing it for you: very nice. If this resource says that beta blockers are not prescribed after the first couple of lines of treatment fail, then I truly do concede that point and I admit my mistakes.
But really, the crux of my argument was just trying to help her realize that there are other options, and sometimes physicians need to be prompted to consider them. Take it as you want, whether I was demanding her, requesting, pleading, etc. Maybe my wording was off. But that was my intention.
And I get your frustration with people coming to the office, armed with their wikipedia knowledge and testimonies from John from down the block. Frustrating, but hey, its part of the practice. It costs money, it costs time, but it is a systematic problem due to the human condition. Anecdotal evidence trumps empirical evidence, right~? Keep fighting the good fight.
Thought I would be random and stop by on your page to say hi, so HI.
Awesome! Thanks for this! My study session starts now, and these will help me through it, haha.
Good night! I hope I wasn't responsible for that inability to reach your target goal! And yes, I'd appreciate more recommendations.
