You all thought it was over with Weingart taking the number one slot. Oh contraire mes amis. After finishing harping on about my favourite ED critical care blogs over the last few days, I just had to do one more - the brilliant - ZDoggMD (AKA Zubin Damania), who really is my brother from another mother.
Zubin is internal medicine physician in California (forgive him), although I must admit, I don't know what the heck internal medicine is, or how it differs from external medicine, and why they just can't call it "Medicine". He has been writing parody songs since his school days. He went to UCSF medical school, and further honed his fine sense of comedy whilst studying. He completed an internal medicine residency at Stanford, where he is now a full time hospitalist. In his spare time (!!) he writes, performs, produces and edits his award winning video blog at ZDoggMD.com (Medgadget Best New Weblog of 2010).
His primary aim is to use humour to promote medical education, awareness, and also burnout prophylaxis for both patients as well as medical practitioners alike.
“My hope is to make people laugh, and in the process make them aware of important issues impacting their health. If I get to beatbox with my homies while doing it, then that’s just cream, baby!”
Zubin, if you're reading this - much love to you. Peace.

A question for ZDogg - why does it still burn? ;)
That concludes our look at our favourite blogs from 2011
