As the Oncolex project now is finished, after 4 years of exciting work, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for job openings.
This week I got a job I’ve applied for and wanted badly! So from November I’ll be working as a medical photographer at the University of Oslo’s Faculty of Medicine.
I’m looking forward to broadening my scope, working with other diagnoses than cancer, new colleagues and a new location. This of course also means lots of new raw material for the blog!

I’ve finally succumbed and signed up with Twitter. I don’t know how much I’ll be using it, but it might be a good place to post interesting items and thoughts that doesn’t quite deserve a blog post.
If you want to hear me tweet, go to http://twitter.com/sterileeye.

They bombed the central vegetable market in Gaza City two hours ago. 80 injured, 20 killed. All was brought here to Shifa [Hospital]. Hades! We’re wading in death, blood and amputees. Many children. Pregnant woman. I’ve never experienced anything this horrible. We’re hearing tanks now. Tell it, pass it on, shout it. DO SOMETHING! DO MORE! We’re living in the history books now, all of us!
This is a text message (my translation) sent from the Norwegian anesthesiologist and professor in emergency medicine Mads Gilbert to the Norwegian media. Gilbert and surgeon Erik Fosse are currently the only European health care workers on the Gaza Strip. « Read the rest of this entry »
