Jellybean 35 with Charles Bruen @ResusReview

So one super long training period is enough for most of us. Most. Not Charles. Charles studied aerospace engineering at MIT. (Yes that MIT.) Having literally engineered rockets Charles retrained as an physician. (Critical Care Medicine and Emergency Cardiology no less!) (Nutter.) Engineers make things happen. That’s almost the job description.

Matt MacPartlin gets a chat going about the engineering mind set and how it fits into the medical world.

We are confronted with problems all the time. Patient problems we can usually deal with although its a curious type of logic we have learned to use. But have you ever been confronted by a system problem. Have you ever been in a meeting where some bright spark suggests a solution for that problem only to be sucked into the black hole of cynicism.

Have you ever had the depressing moment where someone says; “Oh, we tried that once and it didn’t work.”? (Funny how we didn’t abandon Activated Protein C a bit quicker eh?)

Charles looked at medicine and was fascinated. How he is looking at what we are doing is not necessarily the same as the way I am looking at it. Or how you are looking at it. I’m curious to see where he goes.

I don’t know many successful engineers have made this career jump but it cannot be many.

And Charles loves an old Series 2B Land Rover too. (Nutter.)FullSizeRender.jpg

Son. Lighting up my life and climbing up some rocks.
Where I walk everyday we are exposed to the southern ocean. The southern ocean is an unforgiving place. The casualties of its inhospitable state get washed up on the shore. Usually dead. This is a dead #fairy #penguin #Rare #beautiful #dead
Just a beach. Some sea grass, a dog and the water.
Freaky #sunset through #smoke on the way home.
There are a few Ridge Tracks around but for ease of access & relatively easy #walking & #scrambling the #RidgeTrack and #RazorbackTrack in #cathedralranges #victoria #australia is really very rewarding.the exposure on both sides is quite something. Very pleasant surprise for me in my #backyard
