What I would like to contribute to medicine
So, I need some advice regarding a secondary prompt that says the following: What would you like to contribute and be remembered for in medicine? I know I am going to discuss hoping to be remembered as an empathetic and communicative physician by my patients. However, I would also like to discuss my desires to make some sort of contribution to research. In particular, I have always wanted to make significant contributions to the field of autoimmunity and IBD (I have Crohn's). Is this too... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Deathly worried about my future as a pre-med!
Hello all! This is my second post on SDN. I am a biomedical engineering pre-med who is currently in my sophomore year. I am currently in the worst semester I have ever taken in my college career. It was going well at first, but then, and I know it's really stupid, but I heard that the coronavirus was in my University, and since I have a low immune system due to Crohn's and Remicade, I began to skip a lot of classes and now I'm playing catchup. Most likely I will get a a low GPA this... Deathly worried about my future as a pre-med! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

What should I do? MD with anxiety and crohns
Hi First of all, I'm no native English speaker so bear with me. Here's my situation: I'm becoming an md soon, med school is almost over, and while I'm happy about graduating, I'm also worried about my career. Crohn's disease I've had crohn's disease (which means lots of diarrhea and belly pain when it's flaring up, otherwise it's okay) for many years. I've only had a few flares, but I don't know how many flare ups I will have in the future - maybe none, maybe 20. Anxiety... What should I do?

Torn and worried about what to choose.
Hi dear people, Ever since I was a child I had a dream of becoming a physician. Can't really explain why, but everything health related caught my attention (and still does). Plus I liked being in the dr and dentist office. When I tried for med school in 2012, my application was turned down. In 2013 I got diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. In the beginning I could do without medication, but over time it's gotten worse, now I'm getting regular infusions. I just never imagined that Crohns would... Torn and worried about what to choose.

Crohn's Disease and Gallstones (Black vs Cholesterol)
Hey guys, Rounding out near the end of the block and am stumped by a robbins questions. Basically pt has cholesterol stones and I narrow it down to: - hyper-secretion of biliary cholesterol - ileal resection from Crohn's I pick ileal resection from Crohn's because I've learned that bile acids are recirculating and the lack of the bile acids creates opportunity for oversaturation by cholesterol. Answer key differs, indicating according to Robbins that ileal involvement is a risk factor for... Crohn's Disease and Gallstones (Black vs Cholesterol) (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Dealing with IBS/IBD on rotations
Does anyone else that has done rotations or is going to do them have IBS, ulcerative colitis, or Crohns? I do, and I'm worried about how it will affect me and my ability to do the work. I've been seeing a specialist, but nothing has helped. It's not debilitating, but basically I might have to run to the bathroom more than others - like 3-4 times a day, and not necessarily at opportune times. It's much worse when I'm nervous, which of course I will be. Any suggestions/support and similar... Dealing with IBS/IBD on rotations (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Different scans
I am not sure where to ask these types of questions. I am starting medical school next semester and I know what the different scans look like but I get confused when you would use a CT scan vs an MRI vs ultrasound. I am just curious if someone could direct me to a website or tell me. For example, you would use this type of scan for cancer, this type of scan for crohns disease. I just see all these diseases and they each have their own way of Diagnosing it with scans but is there a way to... Different scans (Source: Student Doctor Network)

MD & DO Constructive Criticism Needed
