Grand Rounds

This week's Grand Rounds are at Dr. Andy's blog. I love Andy's blog and recently added him to the blogroll. About my entry he writes:

Doctor, nee Medical Madhouse Madman, complains about his difficulty in getting listed on Medlogs, which is a medical blog aggregator.

I always appreciate the effort set forth by Grand Rounds hosts. But sometimes am slightly disappointed by the introduction to my posts. I mean, I didn't just complain, I turned my complaint into an international incident. It was simply brilliant. The kind of creative feces people long to read. But with the introduction above, even I, wouldn't bother to click on the link.

Still, he's got a great blog, he's very intelligent and a great writer. so check him out!

Oh, and the COTV is at A DC Briding Blog this week.

Hey Madman! Help! I've got an extremely bright 16 year old who's decided he wants to be an MD ... he knows what college he wants to go to (the TRAITOR.. rival state college) but ... while they have medical school that is known all over our state, when I went to the website, I couldn't find their pre med program for the undergrad requirements ... what would it be listed under??????

Starting next year, he's taking AP classes and getting college credit, and he's trying to figure out how long it's going to take him to get through the regular college/premed before he gets into medical school.

He's got the grades now, he took the Pre ACT and Pre SAT 5 weeks into his sophomore year to give him a practice on taking them so they'd know what they're going to be like before they take them for real next year in their Junior year ... and he has scores some Seniors would kill for.
(ACT ... 25. SAT ..740 on reading, 620 on math)
Can you imagine how high they'll be after a couple of more years of schooling? AFter actually having taken Algebra 2 and geometry?

Anyway ... I'm rambling ... long story short ... how do I find Pre med at a state college?

(he specifically wants to go to the dreaded University of Oklahoma!)

they would usually be under pre-med.

or, sometimes the college actually doesn't have a pre-med major, there are councelors who will instruct you on what courses you need to take.

send them an email to find out which is which over there.

Oh, and try tot alk him out of the whole medicine thing. just kidding- this job rocks!

somehow ... I knew that comment was coming from you!

Actually ... my kid is so strange ... he wants to get his MD ..but he wants to use it when it's too late to practice it ...

he wants to be a Forensic Medical Examiner

His interest in archeology, and biology, and anthropology .. and when he realized that his career choices were limited in those area's he was very frustrated. Somehow, he realized that doing this was a way to bring those interests into current use, and give them a purpose applicable and helpful to today.

Personally, it's better than what I was afraid he was going to be ... a lawyer or politician!
But as much as he likes solving puzzles ... his mind for the sciences ...

I just can't imagine working around a bunch of dead people !

Guess barely dead is better than anciently dead?????

Thanks for the nice comments. I agree my description of your GR post wasn't up to par. It was the one post I didn't feel I did justice too, so accept my apologies, even if "simply brilliant" wasn't exactly what I was thinking of ;->
