In a moment of leisure I came across the new trendy medical drama series, New Amsterdam, and began to think about the expectations that current medical dramas, such as Gray's Anatomy and House MD, have placed on the shoulders of healthcare personnel, in particular physicians, on the one hand, and the


When we started this laboratory, as the person in charge of everything, I felt a tremendous uncertainty because I was entering a world for which neither undergraduate and graduate studies prepared me. Had I been less impulsive, I would have taken a course that told me exactly what to do, approved by


Being a pathology lab, I've thought it wise to put the tabloid themes of flat Earthers and anti-vaxers aside to explain a bit about our role in the grand scheme of health care in this blog post.We are not a clinical laboratoryLaboratories are not all the same and our roles complement each other, but

We have all been exposed, in one way or another, to the concept of utopia: the idealization of reality. For me, a 70's child, it came from the concept of the "Age of Aquarius" and "Xanadu", in which at some point in time or somewhere everything would be perfect and we would all be happy.The concept of


Perhaps one of my favorite stage names is "Panic at the disco!", and I've taken it as the name for this entry. 2020 was a particularly difficult year for everyone.
