A new blog carnival

I’m actually surprised to find this out, but up until now there was a noticeable lack as far as medical blog carnivals go. Sure, we have Grand Rounds, but that’s a general medical carnival that covers every specialty and all issues that relate to medicine. Although it’s usually chock full of great blog material, Grand Rounds sometimes to be too big and unwieldy.

Fellow skepticClark Bartram (who also happens to be a pediatrician) has jumped into the fray by starting a new blog carnival, Pediatric Grand Rounds. He’s posted the First Pediatric Grand Rounds, and plans on making it a biweekly affair. Check it out.

    I really like this. It is like Journals – they multiply. If Grand Rounds is JAMA, then we should expect new carnivals to focus on specialties.

    Just like Tangled Bank – an equivalent of Science or Nature has already spawned specialized “journals”, like I And The Bird, Carnival of the Green, Circus of the Spineless, Animalcules, Skeptic’s Circle (which itself spawned Carnival of Bad History), etc…

    I had thought of creating a blog carnival for surgery and coming up with some spiffy name like “Healing with Surgical Steel,” but I already have my hands full running my own blog and the Skeptics’ Circle.

    Isn’t there a medical blogger who takes him name from a brand of scalpel? Perhaps he should be persuaded to create a surgical blog.
