Today’s inane images of the day:

As you might have been reminded by the above images, yesterday was Tigers Game Day! A good number of us were there alongside a couple of our professors and even Dean Folberg [who was a dedicated viewer — he, unlike many, stayed to see the play that brought the win home to the D!]. Definitely was a lot of fun to see everyone out on such a gorgeous day and to have a chance to relax and not study.
Information Resource Overload
Every Monday we have two hours worth of Capstone sessions. Thus far, we have experienced a total of 4 sessions and I already feel overloaded by the medical information resources available to us.
In my downtime this past summer, I discovered social media and a multitude of fun and interesting websites to stimulate my brain. Unfortunately, the urge to check these websites every other moment of the day has been difficult to ignore — while I have been better about turning off my browser altogether when I am studying [aside from a blank page to search for unfamiliar terms], I always end up spending time I don’t have on the internet.
This being said, I already feel a bit overloaded by the internet. Now add on some medical information resources such as AccessMedicine, MD Consult, Micromedex, and UpToDate [the four websites we focused our attention on today] and I’m not sure I’ll know where to turn in the future to look up medically-related terms. Sure, Micromedex is good for drugs and AccessMedicine has USMLE prep, but all four websites provide a great overview of whatever disease/ailment you might be looking up information on. It’s awesome and daunting all at the same time to have so many places to turn to!
There have been a number of very interesting posts from some of my favorite bloggers — this being said, my discussion of these topics will have to wait until the weekend when I am not required to sit from 8am to 5pm in O’Dowd Hall.
