Before medical school, I had never known the meaning of the word
"gunner." The term refers to a student who will sabotage his peers
in effort to be number one. Though gunners have been haunting
medical school classes for years, generations of students have yet
to coin a term for the opposite of a gunner. So what I would like
to propose is the word "Petra." No, not the ancient city of stone.
It refers to one of my peers, my mentor, who has impacted my
medical career more positively than the best grades ever could.

A fifty year-old, Caucasian male, presented with a course of

The discipline of hematology relates to the care of patients
with disorders of the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic systems,
including the anemias, hematological malignancies and other clonal
processes, and congenital and acquired disorders of hemostasis,
coagulation, and thrombosis.
The predominant risk factor for hepatitis C virus (HCV)
transmission is percutaneous exposure to infected blood, which most
commonly takes place through remote or long-term injection drug
use. Transmission has historically occurred with trans-fusion of
blood products before screening of the blood supply in the United
States beginning in 1992. There seems to be no increased risk for
HCV transmission through cosmetic procedures, such as tattooing or
piercing, unless infection control measures are not followed (6).
In the general population, persons born between 1945 and 1965 have
the highest prevalence of hepatitis C, at 4.3% (4).
In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal
Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with
common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to
frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis,
therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools
to improve the quality of care. Many internal medicine clerkship
directors recommend this series of articles for students on the
internal medicine ambulatory rotation.
ultrasound scopes out a new role
Enthusiasts argue that point-of-care ultrasonography extends the
scope of the physical exam far beyond what can be auscultated
through a stethoscope. Detractors worry about overdiagnosis and a
loss of medical skills that have intrinsic value. Both sides seek
balance when considering how to use this new technology.
strategies take good physicians to greatness
On-the-job learning, feedback, simulation, and deliberate practice
can take a good clinician to the next level.

Remote triage and in-person consults yielded similar diagnoses and
signs are vital: The history of pulse oximetry
It will likely surprise younger physicians to know that the modern
pulse oximeter was not invented until the early 1970s and did not
become commercially available until the 1980s.
