Gift ideas for doctors and med students

Over on the Wellness Rounds blog, Baylor College of Medicine physician Mary Brandt, MD, (no relation) offers some gift ideas for those physicians and medical students in your life. Her top pick is the iPad mini; she rounds with it and likes that it fits into her white coat pocket. But for those with a more modest budget, I like her suggestion of a stuffed microbe. (They're pretty fun, and the stuffed ebola virus reminds me of one of those E.T. plush dolls that were so popular in the 80s.)
