U of L student blog

I was recently asked to participate in the University of Louisville School of Medicine’s new student blog. It is now live and a few posts are up for your viewing pleasure.

I have one post up already and another on the way. I may cross post, but mostly I’ll just throw up a link to direct you to anything new. Go, read, comment and share!

Vectors and dipoles. and circuits, oh, my!

While taking physics during my post-baccalaureate training, it wasn’t uncommon to hear other premed students bemoan the physics requirement. “We won’t ever use this stuff!” they said.

How wrong they were. My notes for physio and neuro are covered with vectors pointing every which away, electrical circuits and dipoles.

Don’t think physics is useless, kids! It’s used to a whole new level in med school.
