[More on Medical Ethics]

Back in the day, when I was a young surgeon, I was approached by a group of older colleagues to join a POD. I was flattered, of course. Playing with the “big boys.” But, after leaning what it was, I declined. Although perhaps technically legal, it just felt creepy to me although I sure needed the money at the time.



DEFINITION: A POD is a group of doctors, usually surgeons, who agree to purchase implanted devices such as joint prostheses or orthopedic hardware (screws, plates and rods), etc. Physicians profit financially by participating in the sale of devices intended for their own patients; thus creating the opportunity for them to profit from self-referrals.

QUERY: But, are PODS ethical? Read what the Association for Medical Ethics [AME] has to say about PODs.

Introducing Medical Inflatable Exhibits, Inc.

[By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA]

A regular reader and subscriber to this ME-P alerted us about this company. As a physician executive, health educator and wellness communicator, we decided to immediately post about it. And so, well done Lauren Hill; President and Founder.

A Romance of Many Dimensions

[By staff reporters]

Flatland is an 1884 satirical novella by Edwin Abbott Abbott.
A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott, first published in 1884 by Seeley & Co. of London.
Written pseudonymously by “A Square”, the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novella’s more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.
Several films have been made from the story, including the feature film Flatland (2007).

On David Ricardo and “Derived-Demand” Health Economics in Medicine?

On Ricardian Derived Demand – Does it Even Exist?

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

What it is – How it works

In economics, derived demand is demand for a factor of production or intermediate good that occurs as a result of the demand for another intermediate or final good. In essence, the demand for one is dependent on that whose demand its’ demand is derived from www.HealthDictionarySeries.org


For example, if the demand for a good such as cars increases, then this leads to an increase in the demand for iron ore.


For example, if the demand for a good such as wheat increases, then this leads to an increase in the demand for labor.


So, what about medicine? Saurabh Jha gives us some insight right here!

About the Feynman Learning Technique

What it is – How it works?

[By staff reporters]

I’ve taught at the undergraduate, graduate, business and medical school levels. And, I’ve used and modified the Feynman technique at every level.



Learning From the Feynman Technique

  1. Identify the subject. Write down everything you know about the topic.
  2. Teach it to a child. If you can teach a concept to a child, you’re way ahead of the game.
  3. Identify your knowledge gaps. This is the point where the real learning happens.
  4. Organize + simplify + Tell a story. Start to tell your story.

VIDEO: https://collegeinfogeek.com/feynman-technique/

Assessment: Some time the Feynman Technique even reminds me of the 70-20-10 Leadership Model.

What is an Euler’s Disk?

A.K.A The Oiler’s Disk

[By staff reporters]

A Euler’s Disk is a scientific educational toy, used to illustrate and study the dynamic system of a spinning disk on a flat surface (such as a spinning coin), and has been the subject of a number of scientific papers.

The apparatus is known for a paradoxical dramatic speed-up in spin rate as the disk loses energy and approaches a stopped condition.



Potential Energy: In physics, potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts.

Kinetic Energy: In physics, potential energy is the energy held by an object because of its position relative to other objects, stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors.
