“On Fire” © 2017 Dwight Collman MD; original painintg using Procreate, iPad and Pencil. I am getting a lot of art done since Im waiting on my next employment Dec 2017. So I paint. I write and I spend time each day talking to my fiance. She is waiting for me in Europe where we met. I have lectured and painted and cared for people in Europe and South America. I have also been learning Russian for 10 years. I continue to care for patients and teach as an instructor of medicine at an academic institutions and private tutor physicians. I used locums employment to keep myself safe, i.e., to leave Florida for a period of time. The restraining order I have is only as good as the people who have been restrained; there is nothing good about them.
I am now 61-years-old as of Jan 23, 2017- I was first stalked from 2000-2004; a judge ended all of that with a restraining order after a truck was used in an attempt to murder me. But such men, who never got what they wanted…well I would be stupid to assume there are not still out there angry. Then, I needed to take time off to grieve over the death of my dad in 2008. Then I needed time to grieve over the murder of my mother in the Spring of 2016. I am ABEM certified by the grandfather track. I have all the other certifications you would expect an emergency physician to have: ATLS, ACLS, PALS, BLS and my Fed DEA and the state CSR Licenses and I am currently licensed to practice medicine in IL, IN, AL, FL, and Arizona; if you are interested in hiring me. I have no criminal prosecution for any crime ever, yet in 2012 I was arrested by clerical error by the state of FL and they have sovereign immunity over any prosecution for this. It all damages my reputation also I think. I was found not guilty over a sensationalized incident with a guard in my community for cleaning my driveway and he attacked me and injured me. The guard lost his court case in his first few words…he told the judge I am a convicted and known criminal with a constant record of criminal behavior. He just wanted what my stalkers wanted in 2004: money and his 15 minutes of fame. He made a point of it! The newscasters interview him and of course he is on his best behavior; He was fired from his job after the court ruled in my favor. Why am I publishing all of this? Because dumb nurses are going to hospital administrators and showing a two second clip of me when I am injured and telling the guard for hurting me to stop, including not to use his video camera on his personal cell phone…a personal phone which he used for his intended purpose…to get some fame…some money…not for any other reason. He had no authority to push me to the ground; that is what you don’t see. I was released and then went to work at my new employment in Arizona for five months as a faculty member for Midwestern University (Nov 2014-Mar 2015…that was completed one month before my mom died). She lost her life for the same reason I almost lost mine; I am not going to discuss that at this time. The newscast remains on the internet and has cut me off from employment several times since it was used to sensationalize that a doctor was arrested and some people use that to judge me. It gives no follow up news I was found not guilty because to the public that is not newsworthy. My original stalkers hurt me so badly I had anterior spinal cord syndrome (that means for a time I was paralyzed), a broken back, a broken neck and other injuries; I spent a fortune getting well but I have never missed a scheduled shift of work in 37 years. I have never formally taken a sick day. SO PLEASE LOOK AT THE COURT RECORDS, STOP LOOKING JUST AT GOOGLE; THAT VIOLATES LEGAL HIRING PRACTICES WHICH REQUIRE YOU GO TO COURT DOCUMENTS TO GET THE TRUTH NOT ASSUMPTIONS. THE NEWSCASTER THINKS I DID NOT LIKE A CITATION FROM A GUARD; NO, I DID NOT LIKE BEING INJURED, BEING STALKED AND HAVING ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT EXTORTION AGAIN. I AM A VICTIM. I SHOULD BE THE DIRECTOR OF AN EMERGENCY MEDICINE RESIDENCY PROGRAM BY NOW. I HAVE SPENT MY 37 YEARS WORKING FOR THAT GOAL; ALL OF MY UPDATED CORE CONTENT LECTURES FROM ALL OF THE 7 MOST RECENT EDITIONS OF TINTINALLI’S STUDY GUIDE ARE ALL ILLUSTRATED AND I HAVE CREATED THAT OVER AND OVER TO KEEP PACE WITH NEW DEVELOPMENTS. I TEACH ALL 24 SECTIONS OF EMERGENCY MEDICINE, (I HAVE TAUGHT FROM EVERY EDITION BUT THE FIRST-THAT TINY BOOK WAS BEFORE I STARTED MY TEACHING). I AM GOING TO BE SELLING MY PROGRAMS ON THIS WEBSITE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO GET BACK TO EVEN MORE ACTIVE CLINICAL WORK AND MY WORK CREATING CME/CEU PROGRAMS WHICH, IN THE PAST WERE SPONSORED BY ORGANIZATIONS LIKE NATIONAL ACEP, JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY…THE LIST IS SO LONG I WON’T BORE YOU WITH IT. I was a test item writer again in 2014; I have now contributed over 1000 live test items for board exams and the inservice exams combined. I trained board examiners how to administer the oral exam in emergency medicine for 10 years. MANY OF THE EXPERTS WHO CONTRIBUTED CHAPTERS TO THE CORE CONTENT LECTURES IN Tintinalli’s text ARE MY CLIENTS! MANY ATTENDED MY PROGRAMS IN PRIVATE TO MAINTAIN THEIR PRIVACY (PRIVATE TUTORING-SO I CANNOT REVEAL THEIR NAMES BUT OTHERS WHO DID NOT ASK FOR THIS I WOULD NOT REVEAL THEIR NAMES EITHER). THESE ARE DOCTORS WHO CAME TO ME TO PREPARE THEM SO THEY COULD PASS THE ABEM/AOBEM/BCEM/CANADIAN and other BOARD EXAMS because they all have KNOWLEDGE GAPS and the majority had one or more examination failures. Experts are at risk for this because they tend to “sub-specialize” (I mean reduce) their knowledge to a sector of emergency medicine. So the original author of the APLS manual, I privately tutored for a long time. That doctor needed help with adult medicine. The person who was literally in charge of the ongoing revisions of all of ACLS is another. It is interesting when you test a person in a simulation: what do they most likely fail? The cases they know the best: when you are an expert you internalize that you will be judged if you are not perfect in that area when tested…you program yourself to fail. The other risk is when you don’t keep reading about the areas of emergency medicine that you don’t practice…like what I will just call Dr APLS…some of it is self programming to believe I forgot all of my adult medicine and some of it is true. So I made it my job to help all of these people. I had no idea it would become a full-time job. That has been great except for my stalkers. If I publish my client names they would not want that. They want privacy as do most physicians in my specialty. Do you know emergency physicians have been successfully murdered by unhappy people; it is almost always related to a patient that died in an ED. It is usually a death related to extreme violence. Yeah it is a serious problem that has recurred…so practicing emergency medicine can be dangerous …and I am a survivor of serious attempts on my life; I am a victim of attempts at extortion and stalking. Those of you who google are adding to my injury but you are not smart enough to realize it. I am only now after 17 years making this public because I am sure other people who are not even doctors have experienced the same thing. I will write about how to make yourself safe. There is nothing safe about the internet. Many physicians actually thought I died because my website vanished one day like I had.
I AM THE ONLY PHYSICIAN I N THE WORLD WHO CAN MAKE CERTAIN CLAIMS ABOUT ACCOMPLISHING WHAT I WAS TOLD WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR ONE PERSON TO DO: TEACH PROLONGED CME ALONE. NOW THIS IS ALL HISTORICAL FACT: NATIONAL ACEP HAS THE NAMES OF EVERY PHYSICIAN I EVER EDUCATED AND SO DOES THE FLORIDA MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, JOHN’S HOPKIN’S UNIVERSITY AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PHYSICIAN SPECIALISTS AND MANY MORE ORGANIZATIONS: Combined, over 400 US hospitals have hired me to train their emergency physicians! Almost every branch of the US military has sent their emergency physicians to me; I view this with the highest regard and feel thankful for all of it. One physician, one who attended the my first CME program in 1989 made my Oral Board Prep program (the Oral Board Tutorial!) mandatory for completing the residency. That was the physician CO for the Naval program in Portsmouth, VA. I would never reveal their names on the internet. I would never do that especially after what happened to me. ALL ORGANIZATIONS THAT COSPONSOR ME RECEIVE MONEY FROM ME FOR COSPONSORING MY PROGRAMS FOR CME ACCREDITATION. THEY WILL IN THE FUTURE TOO. MANY HAVE TOLD ME: IF I AM GOOD ENOUGH TO TEACH WORLD EXPERTS I AM GOOD ENOUGH TO WORK IN ANY EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT; I FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE IN BIG, BUSY EDS. I WAS TRAINED MOSTLY IN THE OPERATING ROOM, ICUs OF EVERY KIND, SO I AM VERY COMFORTABLE WITH VERY SICK PATIENTS. RECRUITERS ASK ME THESE QUESTIONS TO PLACE ME WHEN I WORK LOCUMS. SO I AM LISTING IT HERE. I HAVE WORKED WITHOUT ANY ADMONISHMENTS OR FORMAL COMPLAINTS SINCE 1981-THE YEAR I BEGAN TO PRACTICE. MY CAREER THAT SPANS NEARLY 4 DECADES ALSO INCLUDES A FULL-TIME CAREER AS A MEDICAL ILLUSTRATOR. I AM ONLY 61 YEARS OLD; I COMPLETED MY MD EDUCATION AT 23; SO DESPITE THE LONG CAREER I DON’T PLAN ON RETIRING. I NOW USE A PSEUDONYM-FOR A WEBSITE: EMEDNATION.COM. I WAITED A LONG TIME TO START IT…I WANTED MY KIDS TO GROW UP AND MOVE AWAY…FAR AWAY SO I WOULD KNOW THEY ARE SAFE. I SAID AND WROTE THINGS TO THEM TO MAKE SURE THEY WOULD NEVER RETURN HERE. THAT IS NOW FINALLY ASSURED. THAT IS ALL I WILL PUBLISH FOR NOW. I may tell more later. I just started getting comfortable using social media because of the stalking. I feel like I did when I was stalked sometimes when people click the button that they are being my “followers”. You would think it would feel good. Not for me. Not after what happened. I know it isn’t the same as being stalked…but it can still feel the same…that is how the brain is wired. It is part of the protective system built into the limbic system with its hardwiring to the hippocampus on both sides. It makes you remember forever things you would like to forget. So I don’t really yet as of the last month of 2017…(which is now)…no I don’t actually enjoy tweeting or using Facebook or any other social media yet. I only do it because if I don’t I will never regain the happy feelings I had.
The keywords are “following you”. Understand now?
I’m still not comfortable with that; I wont ever be. I am certain of that.
