    hey all. time for my 1 year stint as a combat pediatrician/GMO in iraq. i'll still be around but will occasionally have internet outages.

    i'll be south of baghdad for awhile, then probably even further south for awhile. getting there has been a trial of patience and frustration that i'll post about eventually but shouldn't surprise anyone involved in the PROFIS system.

    ONE YEAR? I wish you luck, and hope you can continue to practice pediatrics. I'm sure there'll be plenty of kids that could use your help.

    Find some web-based, pediatric CME. Do 150 hours of it this year. It's your only hope.
