One of the things I was definitely grateful for at this year's Thanksgiving table: I'm not on-call and can spend the holiday with my family! Best wishes to those renal fellows working hard on this holiday.
Poll Results from last week: there certainly appears to be some dissatisfaction with the ABIM Boards exam, with nobody rating it as a perfect test and most feeling that there is at least some room for major improvement. I wonder if the results would be different if the poll was carried out later, after scores come back (I have heard that there is a 90% first-time pass rate...)
New poll on acute interstitial nephritis is on the right...one of the real "gray areas" in nephrology these days.
