Reason #54898 I want to go into pediatrics.

Also, Arizona Robbins may be my new favorite character on Grey’s.

reblogging for some mid-peds clerkship study motivation.

One of the many reasons I love peds.

Chief Ebola doctor contracts the deadly virus
The doctor leading the fight against the world’s deadliest Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone has contracted the virus, according to government officials.
Sheik Umar Khan has been admitted to a hospital in the Eastern province of Sierra Leone and is undergoing treatment.
The 39-year-old doctor is considered a national hero and is credited for treating scores of people suffering from the virus.
Health Minister Miatta Kargbo said she would “do anything and everything in my power to ensure he survives.”
Ebola is spread by a virus that is initially transmitted from wild animals; it has a high fatality rate and no cure. The virus kills up to 90 percent of those infected, however patients have a better chance of survival if the virus is detected early on.
According to the United Nations, 630 people have died since the virus was detected in Guinea in February and the virus has spread across borders and into several West African countries like Liberia. Symptoms of Ebola include high fever, vomiting, internal and external bleeding as well as diarrhea.
Khan seemed aware of the risks involved with dealing with Ebola, telling Reuters late last month “I am afraid for my life, I must say, because I cherish my life.”
He also said “Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by disease.”

“The world’s gaze may be on the conflict in Gaza or eastern Ukraine, but a historic epidemic is ravaging West Africa: The world’s deadliest Ebola outbreak has spread to three countries, with the death toll growing.

Since the outbreak began in March, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that over 630 people have died and around 1,000 cases have been reported. As if that’s not enough, the doctor who has been leading the fight against it in Sierra Leone, Sheik Umar Khan, has also been infected.”

What starbucks drink represents what type of doctor?
Me:

Oh gosh I love this.

Latte—Internal Medicine—The latte is the backbone of any coffee shop—fail to make a good latte and you fail everywhere! IM docs are often times the center of patient care in the adult world. The perfect mix of strong medicine with just enough mellowed milk poured in, IM docs are hard-working sweethearts ready to go to bat for their patients. 

Red Eye—Rads—Mostly because you’d need that much caffeine to stay awake in the dark all the time!! It’s also essential that radiologists always keep their eyes open to pick up on the tiny details on those CTs. 

Chai—Family medicine—Chai is a little bit of everything! A little sweet, a little spicy, a little creamy, a little tea, a little caffeine. Family med docs seem to have a hand in every pot doing a little derm, a little OB, a little psych, and a little chronic disease management all in one day! Chai seems like the perfect drink for these guys. 

Straight espresso (ideally injected right into a vein)—ER—This one seems pretty obvious to me! ER docs work crazy night shifts, and are generally the kind of adrenaline junkies that would drink their espresso just straight up. 

White chocolate mocha—OB—One part hard core caffeine, one part the sweetest white chocolate you can find, the white chocolate mocha is just like the mix of really crazy procedures they do in OB with the sweet adorable baby moments. 

Black coffee—Neurology—Neuro seems pretty simple on the outside but once you dive into the complexity of it you find a dozen layers underneath that “black box” of a brain. A good strong cup of black coffee is just like this—seemingly simple on the outside, but full of a dozen different flavors you might not have thought of the first time. 

Caramel Frappuccino—Anesthesia—Anesthesiologists are the docs coming to “chill” you out—which is probably why they always seem so “chill”. Caramel Frappuccinos also do double duty hitting dessert and coffee fix in one go—the way anesthesiologists always seem to manage to have time to do medicine and research!

Starbucks Canned Double Shot—Pathology—Mostly because I feel like it was intended to wake the dead. Haha. But more accurately pathologists are often the “neglected” medical specialty with most people feeling like they don’t usually see live patients so they’re not the same as most doctors—BUT they’re a super important part of the team and can really save your butt when you need help fast! Someone get me a read me the biopsy! QUICK! 

Cappuccinos—Surgery—A little bit finicky, the perfect cappuccino can take a lifetime to master. Surgeons, like cappuccinos demand perfection! But, they’re classic, strong, get the job done, and all with a fluffy coat of foam! Besides—pouring the perfect cappuccino with those little designs on top requires quite a precise hand!

Pumpkin Spice Latte—Psych. I mean—come on. The people who are so addicted to this coffee should see psychiatrists for some addiction counseling! 

Skinny Vanilla Latte—Dermatology—While appearing “fluffy” at first glance, dermatologists do everything from cancer to procedural work. Don’t judge this drink from the outside! 

Americano—Ortho—Just like the ortho docs muscling a bone back into place, an americano is just strong enough to wake you up in the morning. (Side note: The drink was named after American GIs who didn’t like the strong French espresso—I’ll let you draw your own conclusion about what that means about ortho docs??)

Hot chocolate—Pediatrics—Warm, comforting, sweet, and adored by children everywhere. 

Disclaimer: this post is OBVIOUSLY a joke. I intend no disrespect to any specialty by it!! It is all intended just to make you laugh and any stereotypes represented here don’t represent my view point on the specialties. 

yay! I get the only tea one!
