Well after years of writing, it appears that Panda Bear, M.D. is throwing in the towel on his blog. His was one of the few blogs I read regularly, and it’s one that no doubt has left an impact on my past and future as a physician. He says that he’ll be working on a book at some point in the future, and that’s one I’ll definitely look forward to reading. So long, Dr. Bear. Your insight, honesty, and sardonic humor will truly be missed, especially by the up-and-coming who have not yet encountered your work. His “My Personal Statement” is a classic Panda take on the AMCAS Personal Statement for medical school applications.
