About (i am just a medic)

Hi, I am Mikka Luster. I have been called a lot of things in my life, but “shit/fan separation specialist” is the one I liked the most. I work as an ER and preclinical emergency medic, currently completing a PhD/MD programme in Cyprus. My PhD topic is on modern medical education and historical perspectives.

In terms of disclosure of interests and conflicts, I work for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies as an advisor, the Bavarian Red Cross as a trainer for ACLS, ATLS, and PALS, and receive a generous grant from the British Society for the History of Medicine to write and teach about the history of medicine.

I post pictures on Flickr, random stuff on Instagram, and sometimes I even take a step into the sociopolitical Hunger Games battleground for adipose gamer-chair warriors, Twitter.

My English language YouTube channel is here, and my German one here.
