And don’t miss the Original!

Short list of things to do when one moves to Las Vegas:

1. Treat gambling addiction with paradoxical chronic immersion therapy. Always bet on black!

2. Eat at epic buffets at least twice daily. Obtain gastric bypass from one of several world-renowned local bariatric surgeons. Subsequently suffer from dumping syndrome, but look RIPPED while dumping by the pool at the Wynn.

3. Create fierce musical parody of the amazingly catchy tune “Popular” from the amazingly catchy musical “Wicked” (which can only be watched in it’s full glory at the brand new Smith Center for the Performing Arts in sunny Downtown Vegas)!

Yes, dear friends, one out of three ain’t bad. And I’m certainly working on the other two.

ZDoggMD Industries is proud to collaborate with the Society for Hospital Medicine (SHM) to promote their epic national conference May 16-19 2012 just outside of Washington D.C.! Sweet hotel, big party, and…oh yeah, CME and whatnot. Are hospitalists boring? Sure! But we’re trying to make them ever-so-slightly less so.

Mad love to UMC Hospital right here in Downtown Vegas for letting us shoot on their wards and hijack their off-duty nurses and administrators! And thanks to the ever-adorable father of hospital medicine, Dr. Bob Wachter!

Lyrics for Hospitalists! (A Parody of “Popular” From The Musical Wicked):



Whenever I see doctors less up to date than I


(And let’s face it, even Up To Date’s less up to date than I)


I fly them to a place where they can see


That they are not alone in this—drug seekers, pompous specialists


I know, I know, those calls from the ED


But even in your case…though it’s the toughest case I’ve yet to face


Don’t worry, you just need some company


And CME…at HM13, you will see…



Hospitalists!


They’re all about Hospitalists


And though it’s a made up word (thank you Bob Wachter)


It’s absurdly cool to be


With others who love PE’s, sepsis, GI bleeds 


All the crap we’re apt to see cause we’re


Hospitalists!


We need other hospitalists


To help us weigh evidence


Both for and against


Protocols we’re sure to use


At SHM, they do much more than just collect dues…


 


They got the cure for information paralysis


Think of it as intellectual dialysis


Why slog through reams and reams of metaanalysis?


They’re your adviser


There’s nobody wiser


Not when it comes to…


Hospitalists!


This conference is not to be missed


Cause with their assist you’ll be


Networking freely


So your career will never ever stall…the gist 


Is HM13 helps you be a better hospital…ist!



La la la la


Way more infectious than C. diff


 


When I see these pompous MDs


Orthopods in Jags and Bentleys


I’m glad there’s somewhere just for us


Where we can celebrate our length of stays


Reduce bounce backs and med mistake rates


Who’s driving quality, Ortho?!? Don’t make me laugh!


It’s the Hospitalists!


Blowin’ up like a hemorrhagic cyst


Resistance is futile so


Don’t ya miss the show


This meeting’s really off the chain


And unlike on the unit, JCAHO won’t be butting in…



La la la la


They keep it real at HM 13!
