how boring

leave a comment »

I’ve just realized something that has always subtly irked me about internal medicine:  Risk tweaking.  Diabetes?  Hypertension?  We’ll give patients drugs to decrease their chance of X, Y, and Z.  No catharsis.  No healing moment.  No revelation.  It’s a lot of numbers tweaking.  How anti-climatic.  How boring.
