It seems like there's a paucity of blogging physicians. I don't know any of my co-residents that blog! So wrong! *shakes head in disbelief*. Oh wells.

I'm a 3rd year resident and I probably blog more than 95% of the people on my f-list! I have no idea if my co-residents blog and I don't want to know.

My favorite resident blogger is Michelle Au of The Underwear Drawer.

Hmm. I would have to disagree. There are a lot of blogging physicians. A year ago, medical blogging was huge, just about every physician was setting up a blog. Unfortunately, there's been some fall outs due to HIPAA concerns, where some doctors were fined or suspended for some of what they had written in their blogs, and so a lot have closed down. It's sad, really. This list would have been much longer in January.

Blogging residents:
http://theunderweardrawer.blogspot.com/ (Anesthesia resident from New York, she's hilarious)
http://scienceblogs.com/signout/ (Med/Peds resident. Great writer)
http://cutonthedottedline.wordpress.com/ (surgery intern.)
http://drcouz.blogspot.com/ (ER resident from Canada. Doesn't update on a frequent basis, but she has some good stories)
http://pedimd.blogspot.com/ (Pediatrics resident. She's not posting as much)
http://www.jollycompany.blogspot.com/ (Medicine intern)
http://mdmaking.blogspot.com (Medicine resident. Rarely updates)

The rolling in the dough physicians:
http://surgeonsblog.blogspot.com (written by a retired surgeon. Never wanted to surgery, but he makes it sound fascinating)
http://fatdoctor.org (family practice)
http://scalpelorsword.blogspot.com/ (ER doc)
http://mwwak.blogspot.com/ (OB/Gyn)
http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/ (more of a compilation of the medical issues of the news with some commentary)
http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/ (academic surgeon. His blog tends to focus more on skepticism and science, but if you need a break, read through his autism posts and the scaries that that attracts)
http://dinosaurmusings.blogspot.com/ (Family Doc)
http://infoisfree.blogspot.com/ (Neurologist)
http://the-thoughts-of-artemis.blogspot.com/ (another neurologist but she's pretty much stopped blogging)
http://doctoranonymous.blogspot.com/ (Family physician, who blogs a lot. Addicted, some might say)
http://thedoctorblogger.com/ (Internist. I just discovered his blog)
http://doctormama.blogspot.com (Internist)
http://scienceblogs.com/thecheerfuloncologist/ (Heme/Onc doctor. Has some really beautiful posts about death and hope)

And I think that's a good start. Happy reading!

Oh and I blog a lot. But since it's more of a journaling rather than making pithy observations about the medical world, I wouldn't recommend it to others. :)

You also have to be careful, because anything you post can be used against you in the future. Once you realize this, the amount of internal editing that goes on while writing a post makes it much less attractive to write at all.

Very true.
