Advice To Those Who Follow

So let's say you are one of the 400 or so MD/PhD students out there planning on restarting medical school next year. Please give yourself more than 10 days between your defense and your first day on the wards. Trust me on this. No matter how little sleep you need, every day will drain your energy to the extent that the only science you could even consider doing after you get home is the variety served on CSI. And even then, it's a safe wager that you'd be asleep before the killer confessed in light of the evidence.

These days, I've been spending too much time on figures and edits and not enough reading about fever in the newborn or asthma.

I guess that is how it always will be.
