We live in an amazing world of constant information, sometimes it can get overwhelming. "Future Proof Shares" is a weekly series with the goal of selecting 5 interesting pieces of media on money and medicine from around the Interwebs. They may be old or new but will always be new to me. This series is inspired by "The Sunday Best" by my fellow physician money blogger Physician on FIRE (PoF). Enjoy!
- I remember when I was a medical student starting my surgical clerkship, my enthusiasm was quickly overwhelmed by hostility from the 2nd year surgical resident on service. Sure I did not become a surgeon. But I've always wondered if that resident ever felt bad about how he treated me. This is the reason why I feel Dr. Karen Tran-Harding's post on KevinMD is worth sharing - An open apology to medical students from a resident.
- I recently tried my hands at helping FPMD readers save money on interview expenses with Top 10 Sites to Save Money on Interview Travel. But here is a slightly different take from the White Coat Investor - 10 Ways to Minimize Residency Interview Expenses.
- As the residency interview season kicks into high gear, you simply cannot have too much help. Resident Sensei asks "How's the Match Going?" Well technically he offered a lot more answers in a post disguised as a question. Be sure to check out How's the Match Going? by Senior Resident.
- Not sure how I missed this, but Medscape already published their Residents Lifestyle and Happiness Report 2017 way back in August. My apologies for the late share, but this one is worth a few minutes of your time. For example, do you know what percentage of residents reported that they are often or occasionally bullied?
- Long time FPMD readers know that I chose to go into a lesser-known specialty - Interventional Radiology (IR). As the newest specialty in medicine, IR can be quite intimidating to interested medical students. So I tried to summarize my personal experience as a recently-matched IR applicant in my latest Op-(m)ed post. I apologize in advance for tooting my own horn, but I thought this was worth sharing: How to Evaluate an Interventional Radiology Training Program - 5 Tips from a Recently-Matched IR Fellow.
