There were teachers, and there were mentors. We all knew there was a difference. Whether it was your basic medical science lab professor or it was the department chairman, we had our favorites.
On the other hand, there were those who loved to torture us. Why do they create greater impact? Deeper wounds, maybe? Or do they really?
I enjoin all contributors to The Blog Rounds to submit posts for the 8th Edition of TBR. The theme is your favorite mentor and/or tormentor during medical school and training. They may be the same person, or not. You may have several favorites. Most importantly, share your experiences with these people, and the reason why they have created an impact on you as a doctor and as a person.
Please leave a comment or e-mail me at email@example.com. I will need:
1. The title of your post
2. The permalink of your post
3. Your blog name and URL
Deadline: 12 a.m. (Manila time or +8GMT), Tuesday, May 6 May 13.
Erratum: Doc Emer is hosting the 8th Edition of TBR. Please see Doc Emer’s call for posts here: http://emeritus.blogspot.com/2008/04/invitation-do-we-practice-what-we.html
I’ll host the 9th edition. My apologies for the confusion. My bad. I was so eager-beaver to respond to Doc Remo’s request to host the next TBR.😉
