From the Editors


We are proud to publish the 14th issue of the Jefferson Medicine Forum. The editorial staff would like to acknowledge the support of Dr. Diemer in producing this year’s forum. We appreciate your guidance and support in bringing this issue to print. Over the years, the Medicine Forum has provided a unique opportunity for our housestaff and medical students to not only share scholarly activities, but also to pursue their interests outside of the medical field. This year, we are proud to announce the addition of medical application reviews as well as an opinion piece on the use of opiates in primary care – a controversial topic that often leads to heated debates. We have also been fortunate enough to include interesting travel experiences, unique case reports, and exciting review articles, along with some breathtaking photography and original cartoon.
