It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it. Hans Selye (1907-1982) pioneering Hunagarian-Canadian endocrinologist who coined the term stress as it applies to biologic organisms and was the first to describe the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Talk of physician burnout is everywhere these days: in medical blogs, in peer-reviewed journal articles, in […]
Life transitions always take some adjustment, even when they’re exciting changes. Moving, expanding your family, getting a new job—you’ll go through many revisions throughout your lifetime. Sometimes they’re planned and expected, sometimes they’re not, but each transition requires you to get out of your comfort zone. One of my big life changes was a decision […]

Just as pediatricians need to bring up uncomfortable conversations about sex to keep their patients safe and healthy, isn’t it equally the responsibility of physicians to bring up diet and nutrition?
“Keep your minds open,” the dean announced at M3 orientation, “maybe you’ve always dreamed of becoming an orthopedic surgeon but will fall in love with psychiatry.” As freshly minted third year medical students with wrinkle free and yet to be coffee/pen/bodily fluid stained short white coats we entered clinical rotations much like undifferentiated cells, eager to be shaped and influenced as we transformed into the future physicians we were to become.
