In My Life Today 24

I am currently in the middle of my pre-residency at the program I left 3 years ago.

These past few years have brought a lot of humbling moments. So even as I see my contemporaries already successful, I know that I have not wasted the time I had away from Medicine.

I made some mistakes recently. I am very remorseful, but I shall not disclose details for fear of reopening old wounds. It was a big mistake to take for granted the trust of a loved one.

I will opt to update my friends through my blog instead of through Facebook. I recently deactivated my FB account because it was doing more harm than good. With pre-residency taking up most of my time, I do not get to be online anyway. I might change my mind though in the future.

The argument that we survived life without Facebook is compelling enough for me to maintain the deactivation of my account for now.

Physician Nexus Needs You To Connect With The World

Dear Doc,

We are creating a site for world-class physicians. You can view the site at:
Physician Nexus offers immeasurable benefits to physicians such as collaboration with other fellow physicians, career opportunities, curbside consults and referrals. It is ready for launch soon.

To help us ensure that the site have a vast of vital information, we are looking for leading Filipino physicians like you to work with us 5 hours a week.

You are to be an online forum moderator for your specialty. The forum moderator will be reponsible for determining, on a monthly basis, the 5 most important questions that emerge within that speciality that month. This will generally revolve around approval of new healthcare services approvals, whether new (1) medications (2) procedures (3) devices (4) surgical techniques, or (5) diagnostic tests (imaging or lab).

By way of example, we might be interested to know if drug eluting stents are perceived superior to non-drug eluting stents for patients with coronary artery occulsions. Other examples would include immediate physician feedback on techniques like LASIK surgery. The goal of the moderator is to determine “the most important 5 questions of the month”, and to stimulate, and organize, the dialogue that ensues. This will require weekly polling of regulatory approval websites, like the US FDA, to see what is new. It will also entail reviewing the peer-reviewed literature and medical professional news of the specialty.

Imagine being able to engage and connect with world-class physicians and boost your earnings and reputation at the same time!

Please send us email to if you are interested. Please include your recent curriculum vitae, including professional and academic affiliations with major universities and medical centers. Include prior publications, research experience, and other evidence of thought leadership, and at least 3 professional references (US physician references are a strong plus).
