After a summer break, NextGenMD is back for a new year ( www.nextgenmd.org ).
September's issue features two excellent articles:
--Changing Trends in Medicine - Lifestyle Options--
Medical training is infamous for its grueling demands on the young
doctor's personal life, but recent changes in residencies and
professional requirements have eased the burden. Karen Maule discusses
the growing trend to provide doctors with more forgiving work
schedules. She also profiles two doctors who sought leaves of absence
after childbirth and continue to work part-time.
Using a viral vector, gene therapy incorporates healthy human DNA into
a cell with a genetic disorder. However, its application is complex
and unperfected. In this article Tara Tai interviews Robert Mulligan,
a pioneer of gene therapy at Harvard Medical School. She also
discusses the application of the technique and patient opinions on
gene therapy in the clinic.
We also have these upcoming articles:
-Comparing Minimally Invasive Procedures in the US and Italy
-Physicians and Death (dealing with death, assisted suicide, criminal
executions, and the military)
-Physicians and the Internet (e.g. blogs)
-Pediatrics - Pathways
-Collaborations between Medical Doctors and Psychologists
We are now seeking submissions from our readers for article ideas and
whole articles themselves. Please email me personally at
