#MedEd Tips for Using Google Glass

Google Glass has the power to be an amazing tool for your education. If you have it, here are a couple tips for you to use it in your training.

Please be extra extra super cautious about privacy for those around you, though… especially patients. And make sure you know the policies of your institution regarding recording video, audio, pictures, etc. This is serious stuff.

But ultra-powerful too. Check out this video:

Are Seduction Artists, Cult Leaders and Con Men Your Secret To A Successful Career In Medicine?

How are you going to stand out from the rest of the crowd? Do you think you can do that by being the most-likely-to-regurgitate Harrison’s or Sabiston’s word-for-word? Probably not.

Watch this video and see if I can change your perspective a little bit (or maybe even flip your world upside down).

If pickup artists can get people to part with intimacy… And if con men can get people to part with their money… Then why are we having such a hard time helping people make healthy decisions?

Establishing rapport and trust does not take more time. (Neither pickup artists nor con men want to waste their time on their targets)

And being good at establishing rapport and trust is not something innate. It is learned and it is practiced. (Most people enter the pickup artist community because they lack social skills, not because they are already exceptional at them.)

So what about you? Are you willing to take some extra effort and to be a little more mindful in your interactions with patients, families, nurses, social workers, etc? You should be. It’s the key to a happier, more successful career.

Patients’ Advice to Med Students, Interns, Residents, & Physicians, in general

Several times a month, I receive emails from patients and nurses thanking me for some of the videos I post with tips for medical students, interns, and residents. Well, recently, I received a moving message from a patient via my YouTube inbox. And she gave me a direct call-to-action to create a means for patients to offer advice from their perspective.

Well, this is the first step in that process. If you are a nurse, a patient, a caregiver, or really anyone who comes in contact with physicians, this is your opportunity to offer some advice. Over time, depending on the response, I will make this into a more robust, far-reaching project. I will select the best of them and redistribute them.

A word of caution… This is for sincere advice only. This is not a mouthpiece for attacking specific individuals, the healthcare industry or for lumping people into groups and labeling them. (There’s plenty of that in the news media) This is for sincere advice from one human to another.

Number 1 Tip for a Successful Internship

FREE Video Gives You The Most Important Advice I Received During My Medicine Internship OK. I just posted a video for interns and medical students on how a mentor’s advice completely saved my career. When I started my internship I was burning out and actually looking for other jobs outside of healthcare.
