I’m not really sure what my place is, these days. And whether it still is with this blog. I will forever be Barefootmeds, but will I continue to tread my footprints here?
Remember that time I went to a little town (village??) called Greyton, with some friends, and had a blast? It happened again. This time, not as a student, but as a doctor. Then, Greyton enriched me. This time, it may well have changed my life. Or at least, my career. (Are they really two differentContinue reading “This one time, at badEMfest18…”
I DEVOURED this book – something that doesn’t often happen because work and yada-yada-yada, but I could NOT put it down. I fell asleep with it last night and then finished the last 10% during my lunch break today. That’s how into it I was.
Moving on: THERE IS A NEW SOCIAL NETWORK AND IT IS ALL ABOUT WRITING LISTS. (I think NaNoWriMo is cool but I’m trying something new this year.)
As alumnae, you are the elders. You should be safeguarding tertiary education in this country. Who are you sucking up to by decrying these protests? Which lecturer are you still trying to impress?
6. I’m thinking of joining Ultimate Frisbee. It’s a super popular sport (sport??) among the doctors here. Actually, I’ve already been coerced to sign up to a team but so far have used being on call as an excuse not to go. I’m terrified. But also I think it can be awesome. Convince me to suck it up and go already?

We take pictures of the Taj Mahal and Mauna Loa and the Shwedagon Pagoda and Table Mountain and so, why not, of these adorable African children. And we post them online too, because the world must see what we saw.
The recent NPR-Truven Health Analytics Poll data illuminated some interesting data. In this poll, 3,000 Americans were interviewed about their concerns (or lack thereof) regarding their health records. Surprisingly, by the responses it seems at first glance that American patients are not all that concerned about the confidentiality of their health records. As per theContinue reading “Does New Data on Patient Confidentiality Change Anything?”
Figure 1 might not be new to my international readers, but I am SO EXCITED to share that today the app launches in South Africa! I’ve been using the app a bit longer because I have access to an American iTunes account, but now it’s officially here and we can share some of our awesome medical images too! It is available on App Store and Google Play and you can download it here.
I’m interested to know what you think about medical photography – specifically, taking pictures of interesting anomalies or cool surgeries. I know that a lot of doctors have personal collections of photos that they keep to… reflect on, I suppose? Use for presentations? Smart phones have made it easier and opened a new can ofContinue reading “Medical Photography: Do or Don’t (+POLL)”
