Every day we’re bombarded with information from various news outlets, the internet, social media, and television. Sometimes, it’s refreshing to read news from doctors just like you. Here are five physician blogs we at Interim Physicians recommend following.
KevinMD: For over a decade, healthcare professionals and patients alike have visited KevinMD to read stories and share insight. With over 2,000 contributing authors, KevinMD offers robust commentary on all things healthcare, from politics, to medical school, to the day-to-day duties of being a physician.
Physician on FIRE: Covering topics from personal finance and early retirement to medicine and travel, this blog is great for physicians interested in learning how they can be smarter with their money. Part anesthesiologist, part family man, and part financial advisor, the Physician on FIRE aims to educate and entertain, leaving physicians better informed and inspired to look at life a little differently than before.
Dr. Linda MD: A published author featured regularly on Physician’s Weekly and MedicalPractice Insider, Dr. Linda Girgis, MD, FAAFP is no stranger to making her voice heard. Named one of the top five woman bloggers in healthcare, she’s never afraid to voice her opinion on the tough topics in medicine, like healthcare policy and the over-prescription of antibiotics.
