When a patient presents to a doctor, many assessments have to be made leading to complex decision trees throughout the process of what is unglamorously called managing the patient.

During residency, which is not the free-for-all carnival that Gray's Anatomy would have us believe, one of the most important judgment calls that is learned is whether the patient......

The pancreas, which is the organ that secretes insulin in response to glucose levels, doesn't actually follow this simple paradigm. Blood flowing to the pancreas does, indeed, come from the heart but the blood (now supplemented with insulin) leaving the pancreas actually ent......

The point, however, is that a surgical (namely, a more anatomically localized) ap......

The surgery/medicine divide is not just a scientific/technical issue but also reflective of significant cultural differences among specialties. The official name of my medical school alma mater - the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons - exemplifies this traditional dichotomy bet......
