Welcome to the most coolest (ever) Nate Chertack-related website on the interwebs! Search through the sections on the sidebar, check out the highlights, or see what's been recently updated and added.

UPDATE: April 26, 2020

Well it finally happened, I updated all the fish pages! All the pictures should be visible now for your viewing pleasure, and the menus are updated with the revised format. Feel free to peruse and pick your favorite fish during this quarantine time.

UPDATE: APRIL 19, 2020

One month into these quarantine times, and one of the positives is that I've been able to finish FOUR music pages: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run the Jewels, The Who, and Rage Against the Machine. Plus, the timeline page has been updated with all the added bands. I'm trying to make sure all the correct album covers are in the right place, you may notice a few missing for a while. There will be a trickle of live albums added on here and there.

UPDATE: March 17, 2020

Writing this at the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. Who knows how things will turn out? Hopefully for the best. I've put the finishing touches on my page all about normal, weird, and other wonderful fruits to try. The BOOK section is updated too, with plenty of new recommendations! Likely some more page updates in the near future to focus on my social distancing.

UPDATE: February 20, 2020

Want to see some of my favorite places? Check out this new page documenting all my favorite places I've visited in the US. The Dallas Guide is also updated, including a favorites of the favorites section!

UPDATE: January 4, 2020

Only 3+ months late, new page with my roadtrip from AUA South Central Section Conference.

UPDATE: January 1, 2020

No actual updates, but Happy New Year! New year, new decade, new adventures. Who knows what natechertack.com will bring this year? Obviously the same high-quality excellent content you've obviously come to expect.

UPDATE: December 29, 2019

Working on the music sections, and finally sitting down and taking a look at the urology section. This weekend, I re-edited, re-uploaded, and re-organized everything on my photography website. Take a look! One of my semi-goals for this year is to do a tiny bit of editing every night. If I can add just one album, review one book, etc...soon the website will be even better than it is now! And it's already pretty great.

UPDATE: NOVEMBER 24, 2019

Just finished my busiest urology rotation, so I celebrated by completing the Yes page! There's also a record of my October trip to southern Utah here. My September trip itinerary is still in the works, stay tuned...

UPDATE: OCTOBER 6TH, 2019

New Pink Floyd page! Yes page is almost complete!

UPDATE: AUGUST 21ST, 2019

Not a real update, because I'm busy. But I never posted about this update! I've seen so many cool places and eaten so much excellent food in Dallas, so I created my own Dallas guide. Check it out here.

UPDATE: MAY 10TH, 2019

I've decided to make the more static sections of the website only accessible from the home page. Fishes, though static, keeps its status as an integral section. I've also added a link to a urology section! What does it contain? Who knows...

UPDATE: MAY 9TH, 2019

Wow...over 6 months without an actual update. For those of you that actually read this, I'm sorry. Residency has been ridiculously busy, but I'm surviving (barely). I've completed the ELP page finally, meaning the music section is complete! Well, at least phase one is, so now it's time for phase two! Urgh.

Importantly, I've been progressively getting into photography (but not getting better). I've created a separate, slightly more professional-appearing website to properly display my photos. You can see it here! Please enjoy at your leisure.

What's next? I am WAY behind on my roadtrip sections. And I'm thinking about making a guide to all the places I've discovered so far in Dallas. Who knows?

UPDATE: OCTOBER 29TH, 2018

Wedding trip is linked via the roadtrip section. Finished the ASIA page! Also, two new pages in the works. Lists of songs that make me happy/sad/pumped! And a list of places in the US that make me happy! More wonderful than a pumpkin-spice latte.

UPDATE: OCTOBER 21ST, 2018

Currently rotating on night shift for two weeks, which is sometimes busy but sometimes gives me a chance to edit the thousands (ack) of photos I took on my latest two-week roadtrip, which you can read about HERE. The pictures will be (extremely) slowly added over time.

UPDATE: AUGUST 5TH, 2018

One month into residency! Living the urology life. Finished the Boston page, updated the Genesis page with a couple new songs, and added all the links to the roadtrips section. More updates to come, as usual.

UPDATE: JUNE 13TH, 2018

I've been busy! Here's what's happened:

UPDATE: APRIL 12TH, 2018

I split the roadtrip section off into its own section, in anticipation of future roadtrips. You can check it out and see all my pictures from my Feb/Mar trip. I'm currently in California on a new trip, so keep your eye out for updates there! I've also created an instagram specifically for my roadtrip pictures (@naturetack). Plus, I got my third urology paper published! It'll be online soon!

UPDATE: MARCH 12TH, 2018

I've returned from my road trip! The entries are complete, now it's time to start uploading the THOUSANDS of pictures I took. I may also do some reformatting and make it an official section, in anticipation of future road trip entries.

UPDATE: FEBRUARY 15TH, 2018

I am currently on a roadtrip, you can read updates HERE.

UPDATE: FEBRUARY 9TH, 2018

The coin section is complete! Although I haven't altered the menus on all the pages, you can definitely access it from the main page. I documented the majority of my coin collection. I think they're pretty schnazzy.

UPDATE: JANUARY 18TH, 2018

I MATCHED AT UT SOUTHWESTERN FOR UROLOGY!!!!! I'm very excited.

UPDATE: JANUARY 15TH, 2018

New year, same awesome website. New Beastie Boys page in the music section. And a new section! Check out some pictures I've taken of my coin collection!

UPDATE: DECEMBER 21ST, 2017

One last update (probably) before the new year. A couple new underwater videos added, plus drum videos for Animate, Old Man and Me, and Lovin' You is Easy

UPDATE: DECEMBER 16TH, 2017

2017 is almost over, and what an adventure it's been. I haven't had time for many updates due to Step 2 studying, but I have some goals for 2018: finishing the music section, finishing the periodic table section, and matching into residency... More drum videos: Aeroplane, Girl Can't Help It, Who Will Stop The Rain, Rock and Roll Band, The Ocean, Falling In Love (Is Hard on the Knees), and Raised on Radio.

UPDATE: DECEMBER 4TH, 2017

More drum videos! Unchained, Mean Street, Burning Down the House, Sweet Child O' Mine and Roll with the Changes!

UPDATE: NOVEMBER 25TH, 2017

The interview trail is crazy busy, but Thanksgiving break has given me a chance to try something new: drumming videos! I filmed myself playing along with some of my favorite songs: Give it Away, I Want a New Drug, Run-Around, Who Are You, and Who's There.

UPDATE: OCTOBER 23RD, 2017

Now that the pediatrics page is complete, you can get helpful input on each of your clerkships.

UPDATE: OCTOBER 9TH, 2017

Interview season gearing up! Get pumped with some Styx and GNR!

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 27TH, 2017

Led Zeppelin and Genesis? Yes please!

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 25TH, 2017

Journey page added to the music section!

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2017

In honor of ERAS apps going out to programs, I'm revealing my latest creation: the classic rock timeline. My favorite bands are represented by their albums. Each album acts as a link to the respective band page, where you can read about my favorite songs from that album. Some band pages aren't finished yet.

Also, all the bugs seem to be worked out from the Amazon transfer. You can type "www" before my url and it will still bring you to the website.

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2017

I've been having recent issues with 1and1, so I've switched the website hosting over to Amazon. After some trial and error, I've figured most stuff out. Unfortunately only "natechertack.com" works, "www.natechertack.com" is a dead link. So don't use the www! If you find any other bugs or issues, shoot me an email and I'll try to fix it. Also, new goal: add a section for each element in the periodic table before match day (January 18th).

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2017

Finished the TI Basic section! Whip out your TI-84 and give the programs a try.

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2017

Two crazy updates! One, a list of my favorite fishes for your viewing pleasure. Two, a timeline of rock albums, with a description of each album just a click away!

UPDATE: AUGUST 2017

Added neuro, surgery, OB/GYN, and psych pages!

UPDATE: AUGUST 2017

Added my Turks & Caicos videos to the video page! Also finished my Van Halen page!

UPDATE: JULY 2017

New Rush and The Police pages posted! Also, all my stories from my 3rd year of med school can be found HERE.

UPDATE: JUNE 2017

So there's a lot more free time during night shift trauma than you might expect. I was able to add many of the good books I've read during medical school to the recommended book lists. I'm also working on a section to help with getting through 3rd year rotations, so look out for that!

UPDATE: MAY 2017

I am about to start my 5th month out of 6 of surgery rotations in medical school (3rd out of 3 urology rotation). Unfortunately fun website updating is not high on the priority list. Fear not, for it shall be much improved once I have more free time and to make it look nice for all the residency programs!

UPDATE: JUNE 2016

It's taken almost 2.5 years, but the fish section is finally complete! Every fish family (according to Nelson 2006) has been given a description of any/all interesting traits, and a picture (if available on the interwebs). I will try adding more pictures (with citations) so you can see what your favorite fish looks like. I'll also try to add a "best of" section, for when you want to skip all the boring fishes and go straight to the coolest, most awesome ones.

Other plans for the website: I'm going to try to add more books, since I've read 2 or 3 since I last updated those sections. Maybe I'll even talk about my favorite textbook (surprise, it's Robbins). I'm on clinical rotations right now and I think it would be cool to put some of the more useful things I've learned onto the website as well. I'm trying to add some band pages for my favorite bands that can't be summed up with just 6-10 songs. Van Halen, Rush, The Police...good music. I think I still have some programs to add to the TI Basic section as well. Maybe I'll even do something with the periodic table page? Who knows?
