In today’s physician’s world one has to keep one foot in the medical journals and another in the world of technology. Information technology not only serves us in storing and distributing patient information, it also serves us in analytics. I would tell any fledgling college student or medical student to develop a strong knowledge base in computer science, statistics, and bio-informatics. It is essential to be able to read journals and critically appraise medical articles. It is also important in analyzing one’s own clinical records for outcomes, treatment paradigms, and examining Evidence Based Medicine (EBM).
