Doctors are notoriously bad with money.  Part of this has to do with the fact that the schools that prepare our future doctors are ill equipped to teach them about money.  When I was a fourth-year medical student, my school had a financial group come and talk to us about money.  Not only was their advice […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Immensely Disturbed by Violence in Media

Recently, a friend went on about how much she enjoyed horror films. I’ve always hated them, but found myself unusually disturbed by her enthusiastic interest. It wasn’t that I was scared or found such movies gross, I simply cannot cope with the fact she could gleefully watch people die in horrific ways. This spread beyond the horror genre, to the point I completely stopped watching movies or shows and playing games, or really indulging in anything, that featured violence or death in any way. I u...

By David W. Hart, Ph.D.  Contributing writer How to age successfully? It’s the million dollar question. Baby Boomers around the country are searching for age-defying remedies that prolong life and add to overall health and well-being. Successful aging is not exactly a new idea.
