Thinking like a doctor… twice

Are you a fan of the Well column "Think Like a Doctor?" There's not much to not like about it: Being presented with mysterious medical details and being called into action to figure out what the heck is wrong with the patient in question is just fun stuff.

Last week, Lisa Sanders, MD, revealed to readers the solution to her latest medical puzzle (the woman who had a fever that wouldn't go away had infectious mononucleosis, caused by the Epstein-Barr virus) and the names of the two people who correctly guessed the diagnosis. One of those winners was Kari Sepelyak, MD, a recent graduate of Stanford's medical school, about whom Sanders wrote:

Tuesday was Dr. Sepelyak’s first day as an intern in emergency medicine [at Temple University in Philadelphia], and despite the demands, she still managed to correctly diagnose the case. She is also our first two-time winner. Amazing.

Amazing, indeed!
