One of the great things about running my own blog is discovering how entirely un-unique I am. Through my blogging journey, I've met (figuratively speaking) many other physicians who also write about medicine and money. Here's my favorite collection of blogs for physicians, by physicians - think of this as the Avengers of physician run blogs.
