The 103 Year Old Doctor
Here is someone that I learned about only recently, but someone I aspire to be like. He is truly living the life I aspire for, merging the world of medicine and art together.

"Maybe I should have stayed in music but I didn’t, and I’m glad I didn’t," Dr. Ephraim Engleman said as he celebrated his March 24 birthday at his San Mateo home. "Music is not a great profession. It’s a luxury and a pleasure. And furthermore, I don’t think I was ever quite that good."

He continuously plays his violin in a quartet, while working hard on his passion of medicine. And the sweetest part of it all is..

Engleman still directs the arthritis center that now bears his name and doesn’t plan on retiring soon. He pressed a finger against his right temple: “I’ll leave when they tell me I don’t have it up here anymore.” And he’ll play his regular violin — not a collector’s item — until his hands give out. But his greatest love, he said, is his wife.
Jean Engleman, who is very fragile at age 98 but is still girl-next-door pretty, came down from their room upstairs to wish him a happy birthday. “I just want to wish you much happiness,” she said, giving him a smooch on the cheek, “and I want to be with you forever.”

The vial represents the fact that the artist wanted to capture the idea that everyone wants a magic pill or medicine or chemical creation that will make them healthy, but nothing replaces healthy eating.

this is amazing!

Exactly! People think I’m crazy for not taking over the counter medicine.

"It’s really scary that the VA medical center ED just let people sit there without treatment not caring."

— They probably are killing people. Totally don’t care that the pts blood pressure is 220 and ignore me when I am trying to make sure the patients get meds. The US Government at its best. (via imaresident)

Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm so happy I stumbled upon this blog. Can you please tell me if choosing a different major other than a life sciences undergrad is really important? I mean do med schools really care about that? Do they like English majors? If you don't mind, where are you going for med school, what do you want to be, and what did you choose as your under grad major? Thank you!

Hi back at ya! I’m glad so glad you stumbled upon this blog too ;) Hope you enjoy it!

Med schools like well-rounded applicants - so basically what’s important is choosing a major that you’re interested in. You can be an English major and still be on the pre-med track. I’ve answered most of these questions in this previous post.

I’m currently attending the University of Medicine and Health Sciences in St Kitts. The same school compoundfractur attends. I’d like to be a pediatrician and a writer of sorts. My undergrad major was Biology, and I did a minor in English. I also went to grad school for English Lit.

aspiringdoctors majored in the arts in undergrad. And if I remember correctly, I think baffledinbrooklyn had majored in something music related?

So go ahead, and pursue what you love! You can have your cake and eat it too the best of both worlds!

What actor do you see portraying me or any of your favorite medblrs being if med school life were a television show?

I love this, I totally agree with all of these

Haha this is perfect! An email one of the professors sent us today: “Ok, so on my way to class this morning I saw a student pop out of a classroom, dance with their toaster, then go back in the classroom. Is it just me or are things getting weird around here?”

"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

— John F Kennedy - Moon Speech at Rice Stadium, 1962
