Conversations with Joe

I have a feeling that over the next 5 months I will be having regular blog posts that will simply involve quotes from Dr. Joe, my delightful GP preceptor.

I wish there was some way that I could absorb not only all of his medical experience, but also his vast knowledge of local history, and the history of everyone in it. He could tell you where the finest pint is poured, the most talented Irish dancers gather, and the sweetest hillside flowers bloom. He knows the best card player, baker, painter, and mechanic. He's the quintessential Irish country doctor who sometimes gets paid in fowl and peat. Yet his practice is anything but old-fashioned as he tirelessly stays up-to-date on medical research and evidence based practice. In my mind he represents the epitome of family medicine. It's so inspiring to see. And more than a little entertaining.

I want to do elective with dr Joe. Is that possible?

You probably could! He takes students all the time...Not sure how much it would cost as my program pays his practice for every student he takes on.
