Random Writing

My father is a novelist who writes fiction and non-fiction inspired by his experiences in love and war (you can buy his books here) and my mother is a librarian and we are all incorrigible bibliophiles.  Therefore - it should come as no surprise that I like to write some things besides science.  I have had some success publishing these works in medical journals and I invite you to read them.  I am most proud of my article in a journal NOT indexed on PubMed called "Federal Practitioner" about my experience as a medical student working with veterans at the VA hospital in Cleveland.  You can read it here.

Another article, titled "Epenthesis", published in Academic Medicine that I wrote as a medical student, plays on a commonality in a physician's life - the difficulty that patients have with our medicalese.
