Join host chiefMD, a second year medical student, as he gives his perspective on being a student doctor in today's society and what it takes to become a physician. Healthcare reform, social media, and a variety of other factors play into people's decision to heed the call of becoming a physician. If you're thinking about taking the long but exciteful journey of becoming a physician or perhaps just want to know what goes on behind the scenes then listen in.

This is the second podcast in the Medical Education series. In this issue, Editor in Chief of Medical Education, Kevin Eva, speaks to Gabrielle Finn (Lecturer in Anatomy at Durham University), one of the authors of an article in Volume 44 Issue 8 of Medical Education - â€˜Youâ€™re judged all the time! Studentsâ€™ views on professionalism: a multicentre studyâ€™. Kevin discusses with Gabrielle the idea of professionalism â€“ how we should regard it, teach it, and how to come to a consensus about what we mean by professionalism.

This is the first podcast in the Medical Education series. In this issue, Editor in Chief of Medical Education, Kevin Eva, speaks to David Cook (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota), one of the authors of the article that features in Volume 44 Issue 8 of Medical Education: â€˜What do we mean by web-based learning? A systematic review of the variability of interventionsâ€™. Kevin asks David about what motivated him to look at computer-based instruction and web-based learning for his paper.

It's a new year, with new lectures. Today is an introduction to Thermal and Statistical Physics. We do a lightning-fast review of quantum mechanics, aided by the excellent program Atom in a Box available at www.daugerresearch.com. We also discuss the fundamental assumption of statistical mechanics. Although statistical mechanics is based on probabilities about processes on very small (atomic) scales, we can still make firm predictions about large-scale behavior. This works for the same reason that casinos make money: the statistics of large numbers becomes deterministic. Lecture Audio
Lecture 1: Accessible States
Prof. Carlson is teaching a new course this semester, entitled Solid State Physics.Here is a taste of the new course, which has a separate podcast in iTunes. Search podcasts for Carlson to find the new one, which hopefully will appear in the directory structure of iTunes soon.Lecture 1 of Solid State Physics: The Failure of ReductionismReductionism is the idea that by breaking things into their smallest constituents, we will learn all about them. For example, we might want to learn about solids by breaking them into atoms, then learn about the atoms by breaking them into the constituent electrons and nuclei, and so on. But reductionism is merely a philosophy handed down to us by the Greeks -- is it really correct? New ideas in the field point toward the inadequacy of reductionism, and lead to "emergence" as a better paradigm for gaining knowledge in condensed matter/solid state physics. Emergence is the idea that when many particles get together, new phenomena appear which are not encoded in the microscopic laws, and in fact are independent of the microscopic laws. For example, all solids are hard, regardless of what atoms are in them. Likewise, if we changed the microscopic laws, by changing, say, the shape of the Coulomb potential, we'd still get solids that are hard. That means hardness, and many properties like it, is not caused by the underlying microscopic laws, but rather is caused by deeper physics. It turns out in fact that it's related to symmetry. Also, find out the difference between correct and useful. Solid State Physics Lecture Blog

We had an exam Wednesday covering chapters 1-7. In the mean time, the podcasting story (which partly featured our class) was in the Chicago Tribune today.
Midterm Exam
We're having a midterm exam Wednesday, and today is a review of everything in chapters 1-7 in the text, Kittel and Kroemer's Thermal Physics. Topics include: Fundamental assumption of statistical mechanics, Laws of Thermodynamics, Probabilities and the Partition Function, Entropy and Temperature, Heat Capacity and Energy, Thermodynamic Identity, Helmholtz free energy, Free energy and the partition function, Maxwell Relations, Planck Distribution Function and blackbody radiation, Chemical potential, Grand partition function, Density of States, Fermions and Bosons, Ideal Gas, Ideal Gas Processes, and a few equations to memorize for the exam.
