Faculty/Fellow Orientation--Do You Have Access to These Books?

Wm. MacMillan Rodney, M.D., FAAFP, FACEP
Updated 12-17-03

“Suggested Reading Curriculum for Medical Students, Residents, Faculty, and Fellows”


Required for medical student rotations Meharry 2000-2004
Required for the Workstudy Program at Medicos para la Familia

A. Rakel Re [Editor]. Essentials of Family Practice. WB Saunders 1998, ISBN#: 0-7216-5868-7.
1. Family Medicine 101: 14-30, 33, 35-40, 42-44, 46, 48, 54-58, 60-77, 80, 83.
2. AHEC Community Medicine: 1-13, 31, 32, 34, 41, 45, 47-53, 59, 63, 78, 79, 81, 82.
B. Consider an organized approach to integrating clinical material with evidence based medicine. This can include textbooks, journals, internet, and others.
1. At www.psot.com the website is divided into 4 major sections: ie, AFMS [Practice Management including the forms for practice management], ARFEM [Education with listing of curriculum for the FP/OB fellowship and others], the Procedural Skills Bulletin[ a medical literature abstract service with an emphasis on procedural skills], and the Camellia Foundation [for the endowment of proceduralists within organized medical education]

2. In addition to psot.com, we have posted a "recommended reading section on the mmc.edu site which takes you to Meharry home page where you should click on medical school, click on clinical sciences, click on Department of Family Medicine,
and use the menus. The "Recommended Reading" section of this site [and the PSOT-ARFEM site] is divided into sections for students, residents, faculty, and fellows. The fellows site contains abstracts of the world's literature on FP/OB through 1996 [still pretty accurate since so few studies have been published since then] You may find segments of these websites useful.

3. Dr Rodney’s curriculum on ECG interpretation, Chest X-ray interpretation, Office Ortho, and the handouts on other common clinical topics are there. The Practice Management section contains charges for the most common 100 services performed in a Family Physician’s office. Also there are forms for Advanced Family Medicine. These include, but are not limited to, GI endoscopy, colposcopy, diagnostic ultrasound, electrosurgery, skin surgery, and other minor office surgeries.

C. Remember ALL students must pass USMLE Step 2 to enter into a residency, and ALL residents must pass USMLE Step 3 before they can obtain a medical license. Reading and focused study in support of clinical experiences remains the time tested road to success.

Medi is back to its glory days in the absence of the obnoxious barking from the MadDog!!! Does anyone think there are some indispensable tips he actually learned from his private club? His club is such a joke.

I cant believe this kind of idiot exists in this world. Two words to describe this piece of human trash: shameless and stupid. USMedEdu, aka, MadDog, put the following thread in his blog and bold it in the front page. Yet, clearly, the answers he endorsed are the worst answers. The answer I provided got a nod from an English forum. Does he understand the concept of shame or logic? Not only he speaks/writes shitty English, he cant think straight either. And now he wants to drag everyone down with him. PITY! What kind of dumb ass slaps his own face in public? What a joke!
无极: 住院医生面试碰到的尴尬事( 力刀评注推荐及麦地网友讨论)

Doc has successfully sabotaged a good learning club. At the peak, the pre_resident_english_corner had over 95 members and hundreds of posts. Congratulations! I will jot down a few expressions and new words here and there for myself mostly. Sorry friends. I let you down. You guys are the only losers as the bystanders caught in the cross-fire between the two warring parties. Ironically, both of the two people at war came out as the only two 'winners'. Doc can claim his star power. I can focus on my study.

Clearly, this USMedEd cant think straight anymore at his age. To give his credit where credit is due, he is still good at copying/pasting of the posts written by others. Follow his rubbish advice at your peril. We can write a laundry list of his shitty advice. This is a guy who cant keep his job for long. I am still wondering why he had to side with the losing party in a political struggle at work as he put it in one of his posts. Most people would not get involved. Only confrontational and aggressive douche bags would go for it. They can be burned again and again and are still clueless as it is just bad luck and not their faults whatsoever.

It is not just me saying this. Read this:
[snowfox01 于 2010-11-02 17:25:32 提到] [FROM: 134.74.]
Dr.Newbie:Please be nice to this old man。
难道你没看见你把他生命中唯一的支柱----收集各种贴子,然后大言不惭的copy&post 到自己的网页。给打碎了。同时,他在麦地的“一手遮天” 用那二十年前的狗屁经验来误导新人,也让你给揭穿了。我能理解他的恼羞成怒。他也没几天了,就让他乐呵乐呵吧。

There is no doubt that my English is better than anyone else including Eric and that lumcsomething. I was actually touched by the applications to my club every day during this short time. While I am still trying to figuring out the best way to get people energized and the best way to help, it went kaboom. It is such a pity. Just imagine how much more I can help once I get into residency and finish it.

I am sorry it has gone this far. This dokknife has been attacking me relentlessly on anything I write for no good reason. I have to stand up for myself. He said it himself: He does not care whether I am right or wrong. So he makes it personal. Now, he got it. It is personal between him and me.

Feel free to say hello to me at your leisure. I dont have time to play with this piece of human trash and a sadist who excels in copying/pasting and who cant keep his jobs for long. Let him have his schadenfreude from how the ex-boss who canned him got divorced. Let him brag how successful he is in dismantling a learning place.

Lets watch which comes first: I get into residency or he got fired.


You all think this is acceptable and a good presentation of character? What I said back is half what he has said to me. Every time I make an apology to him, I got spit-at-your-face response in return.

It is a pity to see a good club falling apart. At least I have the decency not to use my club as a venting joint. I am sorry that you are put between a rock and a hard place. I will understand if you have to quit the club. You are always welcome to use a majia and check us out. This club is not intended as a base for isolation or a launch pad for personal attacks. It is a place purely devoted to English skills. It is a really a shame that Doc would pull people out of a club just to make people take sides. I dont see how he sabotages an educational club would help his cause. Yes, he has succeeded in pulling 20 people out of my English club and he can claim it is a win-lose-lose situation for himself. But ultimately, it is a lose-lose-lose situation.

Do you have any traces of honor and integrity left in your body? What a piece of human trash. How hard is it to admit you were wrong? What a stupid, arrogant, crazy bitch. Your bark is worse than your bite. Pathetic loser. You promote a 'clean' medi. Yet, you started a club for the sole purpose of shitting in it.You are a disgrace to the human race.

Read this and you know how it started and what I said is exactly what Doc said to me in English. And he said it a dozen of times to me.


1 [DrNewbie 于 2010-11-08 23:51:41 提到][删除][修改]

What I said is half of what you have said to me. What are you whining about? Be a man. Fight fair and square. Dont just shit in your own compound. You thought you will get sympathy from your followers? What you get is despise from your sympathizers.

2 [DrNewbie 于 2010-11-08 23:05:40 提到][删除][修改]
Clearly you have no comprehension of English. You have a low EQ. You are clueless here. Why dont you shut your mouth? Be a man and make an apology to me. I have apologized to you a dozen of times. What I get is spit-at-my-face every time in return. Do you have any integrity and honor left in u?

3. All said and done. You truly think you gain the upper hand by locking me outside? You truly think I will lose without getting into your club? Seriously, dont flatter yourself. I have connections to match into a good University program already. I personally know a couple of Chinese PDs and American PDs. Give me a break already.

Lexian (蒙古大夫) 于 (Thu Feb 11 12:11:31 2010, 美东) 提到:

I think you are pointing this to me. I can honestly tell you i don't have
any MaJia. never had and never will. I don't hold personal grudge against
anybody, especially this one. it's not worth my time.

However, i think you are biased by assuming people who are against tyranny
and unjust are against anyone specifically. I can only speak for myself
because i really don't know anyone else that got into similar kind of
argument with him. I have no intention of "打击正在做的人", but that doesn't
mean i won't say "WAIT A MINUTE, THIS IS NO RIGHT" when i see posts like
the one i respond to.

As i have stated long long time ago, CMG's history in this country are short
. Our mission goes far beyond getting into residency. A public forum that
attracts examiners, residents and PRACTICING PHYSICIANS is very important in
exchange information and experience. I just can't help laughing when i see
some guy who happen to got into residency wants to "harmonize" the forum. I
can honestly say the game just starts AFTER you graduate. Please refrain
from your "GOD" like euphoria of getting into the residency,
