What's Going On?
The demands of real life (cases, call, and installing our EMR) have been keeping me away from the blog. Things have slowed down somewhat and I hope I can give it some attention. I wanted to respond to a comment to this post:
I would be interested to know why it is you are "falling out of love" with general surgery. Thanks

Perhaps "falling out of love" was a poor choice of words. I am finding that I find general surgery less rewarding than I think concentrating on trauma/critical care would be. My current practice has fellowship trained subspecialists and others who have over the years "self-selected" and limited their practice. As the "catchall" general surgeon I find that the primary care physicians tend to want to their patients to see the "specialists" in the group. Also my partners tend to dislike tending to the trauma service. A win-win on both counts for me. The process is slowly progressing on. It has been awhile since I had to register for a match.
