Episode 5: The ABCs

A story of my first day as the second-year surgery resident in our emergency room, where we coordinate the care of all the trauma patients and act as a regional resource for a farflung network of hospitals. On my first day, a doctor called in with what seemed like a question far outside the realm of my meagre experience. On second thought, it turned out to be pretty easy. The full story, complete with my proving my first-grade teacher wrong by correctly reciting the first five letters of the alphabet before turning 30, can be found here.

Episode 4: Speaking from the Heart

Welcome to Episode 4. In this episode, I review some mail from listeners and talk a little bit about the trials of medical school and how they compare - or don't - to the trials of doctoring. Jarrad, whose letter I read, blogs at it out.

Episode Two - When I Chose to be A Doctor

I've known since I can remember that I wanted to be in medicine. There were times, though, when that choice was muddied by my other interests. And there were even a few dark months when I was pretty sure I wanted to be a lawyer, instead. One night, volunteering as an EMT in the local ER, I met a patient who made my choice clear. That story here, as Episode Two.

Look forward to hearing what you think. Thanks for listening.

P.S. The podcast is now available on iTunes. Or just click here:

Dashing MD, The PodCast: Episode One.

Welcome one and all! Or at least one! I'm excited to announce the start of the Dashing MD podcast, another way to tell my stories and, if I'm lucky, yours as well. This is a new venture, and I have no experience in doing this, but I've been granted a full weekend off from work and have enjoyed spending part of it putting this first podcast together. I was suprised at how easy it was, in the end. Whether it's easy on the ears as well I look to you to tell me. Enjoy.
