Many medical schools have established programs that will set medical students up with a mentor. But the following questions are not often addressed: How do I make the most out of my mentoring program? How do I pick a mentor? How often should I contact a mentor? What should I do if I don't connect with my mentor? Do I really need a mentor?
Kim Dixon has an affinity for unexpected timing. After spending several years working as an engineer, she turned everything upside down and went to medical school while in her late 20s. While there, she married and had three children. At the age of 40, she took up figure skating, and last year she joined a competitive synchronized skating team. This innate spontaneity has paid Dr. Dixon great dividend, and so has the decision to be an internist. If given the choice of doing it all over again, would she make the same decisions? Her answer: a resounding 'yes.'
Mayo Medical School's Internal Medicine Interest Group has been active continuously since 2002. Our group serves students throughout all four years of medical school with student leaders from each class. Student leaders will often continue involvement over several years, and long-term participation in this manner allows close collaboration between students and continuity of involvement on larger-scale initiatives.
Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is a gram-positive anaerobe that is normal flora of the mouth, conjunctiva, colon, and skin, predominantly in sebaceous follicles. P. acnes rarely causes serious infections and is often dismissed as a contaminant. However, in certain clinical circumstances, a positive culture deserves more attention. Recent literature has shown that P. acnes is an increasingly important pathogen in post-neurosurgical and prosthetic joint infections.
