We think we know everything and have learned everything but every day brings its share of surprises. Every day is a new day and simple ideas, tips, and tricks can sometimes improve the way we do things and how we serve and treat our patients. As we immerse ourselves in our patients’ care, we miss out on continually obtaining relevant and accurate medical news. Instead, we rely on sporadic enrichment through didactic educational activities in the form of conferences or grand rounds. In only a few minutes, the "IPOKRATE Blog" will do this for you. Stay connected and get into the habit and you will find yourself constantly enriched by the on-going posts and discussions taking place around the world.
