“Patient Accounts are Worth Every Word”

More good email: Martine writes to tell me that this week’s Grand Rounds are up at her blog, MudFud: Tales of an MD/PhD Student.

“This carnival celebrates every aspect of medicine, from the student to the surgeon and the patient on the table. Please help me celebrate this week’s best posts in the medical blogosphere by posting a link on your site.”

Martine has organized this week’s “best-of” as “A Day in the Life of a Medical Student.” And guess what? CHECK OUT 3:00 PM – The Patient Perspective. Martine was reading ME!!

… along with other patients like Peggikaye at Pearls and Dreams on chronic pain, and Acid Test on the protracted pain of awaiting Emergency Care. Martine concludes by saying: “These patient accounts are worth every word,” which renews my faith in the medical profession right there!

It seems these med types are not as narcissistic as you might think :)

    Just received a Google alert about some medical research targeting Diabetes. Here’s a link -

    Specific paragraph that brought you to mind was this:-

    “…NIBR and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard will collaborate on a joint project to decipher the genetic causes of diabetes. This initiative establishes a research partnership of physicians, geneticists, computational scientists, pharmaceutical researchers and others to identify inherited risk factors for developing the disease and its complications. All findings will be made available to the public for free on the Internet.”
