Life evolves around medicine & the internet – interested in buildings (Streetview), web development, infographics, urban sketching & reading.
I use this website as a platform to write down my ideas, code them into posts, create some infographics and let that roll into the world.
“Why create content?” You asked. That feels like a lot of work.
I need a creative outlet.
I would like to contribute by processing my thoughts and what I learned, share them and see other people use them.
I look forward to live in a world where people are not afraid of their diseases – because they know the information about it is on the internet.
Few clicks, blogs and websites to read.
I look forward to live in a world where people communicate ideas and thought process publicly.
Documenting their experience learning to blog, code, cook, memorize the cranial nerves and share it publicly.
“Hey, you have a question on this? I have a guide that I prepared when I was going through the same question, here you go.”
The internet is made to bring people closer.
Since everyone has the freedom to share, everyone should be given the freedom to access information. Quality information.
Why I start
This blog had the articles that I want to read but can’t find on the web.
When I was in despair knowing my father had IPF, I’m looking for a blog or website that tells us what to expect that in Malaysia.
When I was looking for the respected Prof. Emeritus T. J. Danaraj online, I’m looking for a website that’s well designed that tells me about him.
When I find a lot of medical information circulating around a disease, I hold the information written by people who had lived with the disease dearly.
I know they are communicating their experience.
When I was a medical student and struggled hard to understand some concepts, I am looking for a website describing the topic as if I’m a layperson, slicing down information to the simplest bits.
What you’ll read here
I created this website in Feb 2017 to first write about my father’s journey living with IPF.
This is also the home to the White Coat Bites Project which I started to introduce social media and email series as a way to make learning medicine a little more fun.
Slowly, one thing leads to another, and now I write more on topics about medicine, as well as recommendation to the young medical students or junior doctors on how to learn medicine while keeping themselves sane.
I always think that knowledge can be learned, experience can be gained, but I wouldn’t want to lose another colleague in medicine due to stress.
I write about lessons I learned along the way I advance through life and learning medicine.
It’s from my eyes and under my white coat, it might (and should) be different for you.
I would like to declare that I’m not a professional in medical education nor a lecturer in any field of medicine, I’m just a learner working and learning medicine like you.
I’d like to remain anonymous at this point of time – would like to lift off the unnecessary stress of writing under my real name. Appreciate your cooperation in keeping this a secret as well 🙂
Feel free (and I’d encourage you to) fact check the information I’ve written here – appreciate if you can point it out to me as well so that I can correct it!
Who is this for?
I dedicate the articles to you, the lost medical student who’s overwhelmed by the medical school and hoping to find some ways to guide, the eager someone hoping to find more to read about medicine and the curious one who clicked on the link to this blog and want to find out more.
See you on the next article!
