The Board Prep Blues


Ok, this is a tough post for me to write.  But I have to admit - I've got the Board Prep Blues.  For the better part of a year, FPMD has adhered to a thrice weekly posting schedule and it seemed to have worked out well.  More of you are visiting the site every day and hopefully getting something out of the visit.  But between the daily demands of a busy radiology residency, studying for the board exam, interviewing for IR fellowship, finishing up research manuscripts and meeting presentations, I'm finally conceding that I can't do it all. 

I've always prided myself in keeping a short editorial queue.  The primary reason is because I want to write on timely topics as they occur.  For example, 38 CFR Part 17.415 - Short for "VA Doesn't Care About Veterans".  Over the last month, I've found it increasingly difficult to find time to write for FPMD.  During the same time, our residency program started daily internal board review conferences, and I realized that I was lacking behind my peers in my radiology knowledge.  

Something had to give.  Fortunately it was an easy decision to make - I'm a physician first, money blogger second.  Instead of filling the editorial queue with junk pieces and guest posts, I prefer to continue writing articles from my personal perspective you may find useful.  Today, I'm announcing the FPMD will transition to a twice weekly posting schedule.  You can expect the weekly installment of Future Proof Shares every Tuesday and an original post from yours truly or a guest author every Saturday.  I anticipate this change to be temporary and plan to return to the regular posting schedule by July of this year. 

Thank you for supporting FPMD.
