One of my favourite blogs is A Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor.
If I could go back in time, perhaps becoming a doctor would be on my to-do list. As it was, terrible grades, a hatred for school and homework, and an apparent inability to handle things a doctor might have to handle, eg everything from stitches because I was not great at sewing right up to dealing with dying people meant the doctor career path was a no-go area for me.
One of the fantastic things about the internet is that you can live vicariously through the blogs of other people and this blog is no exception. The blog began as a place to post cartoons which Dr Fizzy had drawn during medical training and a place to share memories from that same training.
I strongly recommend going back to the start of this blog and enjoying the cartoons there because they are deeply awesome, and it is my opinion that Dr Fizzy has beautiful handwriting.
I sent an email to Dr Fizzy asking if she would be ok with answering a few questions and thankfully she said yes. Here we go!
There have been a lot of doctors seen on our TV screens over the years. Do you have a favourite TV doctor? If yes, who is it?
Actually, I’m not a huge fan of TV doctors. In general, they annoy me and don’t seem real. But I felt scrubs was one show that sort of got it right, and I loved Dr. Elliot Reed.
Do you have a favourite blog post on your blog? If yes, can you give us a link to it?
If you had access to a time machine and could go back in time and give one piece of advice to yourself as you were starting medical school, what would you say to yourself?
Run! (I’m kidding. Sort of.)
What is the one food item that you cannot resist?
Gourmet pretzels, especially the kind with lots of salt.
If I gave you an all expenses paid trip to anywhere in the world, where would you most like to visit?
I don’t really care, as long as it’s someplace warm, with a beach and free cocktails.
