Every Tuesday, Grand Rounds is an accumulation of the best posts from medical blogs all over the Internet. Its original intent was to be written with the non-medical blogger in mind (this means you). After all, who isn't interested in medical topics?
What kind of stuff will you find? Just about anything! It can be stories about patient interactions. It can be commentary on the latest medical news. It can be explanations of clinical disease processes. Or it can be rants on just how ridiculous medical school is as seen through the eyes of a jaded and possibly slightly insane medical student. (Not that I'd know anything about that, of course).
Time to call a MEDIC! The Angry Medic of Cambridge isn’t seeing as much gore as he’d like from his textbook prison and decides to take his education to the pitch where he receives a ball to the face, dips blood into his antiseptic and consoles the players that a large bandage will not effect “the number of female spectators yelling their names from the sidelines.” You could say he Comes of Age.Grand Rounds is a weekly collection of the blogosphere's best medical writing. In the past there has been concern over the falling standards of Grand Rounds, but this edition is a step in the right direction, as Topher has obviously exercised stringent quality control (I should know. He was very generous with his feedback and got me to edit my submission twice before including it. Quality control is good, even if it doesn't do my carpal tunnel syndrome any good *wince* --Ed).
Go over and poke around. There's something for everyone, whether you're in the medical profession (you have my sympathies. --Ed) or not (you lucky bastard. --Ed). You might even find your Holy Grail.
And once you have, don't forget to pop over to Doctor Anonymous next week for Grand Rounds 3.09.
