I think I’m in love with scutmonkey – go check it out if you haven’t already. The above cartoon is once again borrowed from her site – you just can’t find a better representation out on the net …

So for the past two weeks I have been working in the ER and loving it. It’s high in volume and learning content. I have found that my clinical skills have really improved over as I learned to master the quick, but thorough focused physical exam. My compliment to insult ratio by patients was 2:1 which is excellent (hey you can’t please everyone).  Best of all – there were a tonne of good stories – which is also excellent given that I have had a bout of writers block lately!
