I decided to go to mdsalaries.blogspot.com and I found that the blog was deleted. That blog is very popular and I love reading about the enormous amounts of money different physicians earn in USA compared to other countries.
Should I continue what that site started?
As a medical student I don’t have that much time but I’m always interested in writing about new topics. I always love reading about physician salaries and perhaps I should continue what that site started. If you are a regular visitor you should know by now that this blog has a lot of useful information about studying at a Caribbean medical school. Not only that, I do my best to keep it updated every month. Last month, I didn’t get a chance to write anything because I was leaving Bonaire and therefore I was running around getting things organized and chasing after my landlord to get my deposit back.
Anyways, since the Bonaire chapter is done and closed and a new chapter of clinical clerkship started I will write about the salaries physicians earn and how to be one. I only do so, not to copy mdsalaries blog, but for my own information, so I can have a database to refer to in the near future. Whenever I get a chance I will write about the salaries for certain physicians and how to get into their respected specialties.
Now that basic science is over, all the information I write from now on will be useful for all medical students from different medical schools. Where you do your basic science classes differentiates you from medical students of other schools; however, clinical clerkship is the same for everyone.
I know this post should have been published before I posted the AICM posts but better late than never. Anyways, the Saint James School of Medicine class of Fall 2010 is the school’s largest class. We started with 70 students initially and graduated with less than 60 unfortunately. For the new comers this class will be remembered by all those who interacted with us. For new students, ask around and your fellow students and they will tell you our class is one of the most friendliest classes out there. We did our best and took time out of our schedules to help out the newcomers. Unfortunately, someone told me that other classes on the island are not like that. The following is a picture of the class, which was taken in MD4 semester.
