Android : Family Practice / General practice:

It's a tie between:

Social isolation / loneliness / lack of community connection


Woefully inadequate fee for service billing codes incentivising 6 minute medicine.โ€ฆ

TweetDeck : Question for Canadians / North Americans:

In what context or situations would you address another adult by their title and last name, vs first name?

(I'm specifically curious about verbal, rather than written communicatin)

Android : Woke up with "give me a home among the gum trees" ๐ŸŽถ running through my head. Is my subconscience trying to tell me something?

Android : John Shields, MD, FAAOS My first day of intern year, orthopaedic rounds...

Boss: what's the patients haemoglobin today?

Me: *looks at my team, curious to know the answer*

Them: *all look at me*

Me: oh! Am I supposed to be the one who knows this?

Repeat 18 more times.

Twitter Web App : Half way through 2020 and over 50% of my target kms: 1037!

It was a bit of a June-uary here with unseasonal rain and grey skies. Bring on Summer! But Im still ramping up the ks with the help of the friends, mountains, trees and wildlife cheering me on. #walk2020in2020

Twitter Web App : Woohoo! Absolutely crushed May! 853km down and on track for the 2020 by year end. Walking highlights this month included purple meadows, ducklings, walks with friends (!!) and turtles doing funny things on logs.


Twitter Web App : A few kms short in April. New job, homesickness, rising anxiety...

But the walking brings me so many things to be joyful about. April highlights include tulips, peacocks, cherry blossoms and donuts by the ocean.

660km down.


Android : Hey ultrasound nerds.

Does anyone have experience with Clarius C3 HD handheld probe?

Pros and cons? (This is for a clinic not for personal acquisition)

Android : Lucy ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ It's beautiful, the weather is mild all year round. South island (Victoria) is in a rain shadow from the Olympics so only gets half as much rain as Vancouver. Can be cliquey and hard to break in socially. Progressive and tolerant society for the most part.
