The Rural Doctoring Interview

First assist rural doc on TwitPic

The Doctor Anonymous Show is proud to welcome Dr. Theresa Chan from the Rural Doctoring blog to show 42 on Thursday, July 31st, 2008 at 9pm Eastern Time. She is a family physician (YAY!) working in Northern California who primarily does hospital work now - Called a hospitalist. Did you know that family docs deliver babies? Well she does and she even blogs about it. You can also follow her twitter feed right here.

She is a relatively new blogger and in my humble opinion, she is one of the fastest rising stars in "New Media Medicine" (I'm trying to get away from the term "medical blogosphere"). I think she's a great writer. If you don't take my word for it, how about being at the top of the Kevin MD Power 8 for not just one week for a number of weeks in a row.

I encourage you to check out some of her most popular posts in the right side bar of her blog including, "Why I Blog," "Open Letter to Woman at Supermarket," and my personal favorite simply called, "The Hospital Yadda-Yadda." We'll also talk about her new iPhone, how she's dealing with her new media medicine fame, and the interesting topic of transparency.

Finally, if there is time, I'll talk about what the heck I've been doing since I've been off - including my Board Exam Experience, Podcamp Ohio, and other assorted stuff. I'm also going to Kansas City this weekend where I will be on a panel presenting to family medicine residents and medical students. And, there may be a major change to my "new media medicine" life that may occur this weekend. We'll see.

"major change to my "new media medicine" life that may occur this weekend" <-- Sounds ominous. Hope you're not going to do a disappearing act. Of course, it could be that you're leaving medicine to go full-time Mac-rumor-blogging sort of ;)
One request for you & Theresa. Please don't talk about he iPhone. I'm sick (with jealousy).

Tip: Theresa will be hosting Grand Rounds on August 26th. Because she's just that GOOD. :)

Colin Son and I are carrying the Grand Rounds baton for Nick Genes while he attempts to survive his Chief year in EM.

Let's keep it hopping! :)
