Not about Web 2.0 or Medicine



t has been a while since my last post, and this post will not be about Web 2.0 or Medicine. This post is going to be a little personal. I just got my score of my Step 2 CS that I took in L.A. in April 2nd. Now I know that I passed this test and with that I got my ECFMG certification. Therefore, there is just one test more ahead of me, but a long way to become what I want to be. "I want to be a man able to cure. I want to be a man who can serve his fellows, a man who can take lightening to those who suffer, I want to be able to give back the health to the patients and the hope to their relatives". I read this beautiful paragraph in a book named "By the River Piedra I sat down and wept" written by Paulo Coelho. While reading this book I cleared my ideas about the kind of doctor I want to become. At the same time I thought that this will not be possible without the help of really generous people I consider my friends. With this post I want to thanks all of them for their support and friendship. I also want to thank God for everything, good and bad things.


  1. hello!
    While surfing in the net I discovered your profile and I also love the work of Paulo Coelho!!!! Do you know that he is launching his new book, The Witch of Portobello, through his blog
    I found it out because i'm inscibed to his newsletter http://www.warriorofthelight.com/engl/index.html
    it's simply wonderful!
    have a nice day!

  2. Congratulations, Victor! I'm glad to be reading about your passing! :-) Well done!

    Re: Coelho. I love reading him. Have you read his The Alchemist?

  3. Thank you for the comments.
    Yeah, I have read the Alchemist, but even when Coelho is not my favorite author, he has really good ideas, and writes beautifully.
