These comics are great. I think you'll be interested in a course I teach at Penn State that has medical students create similar comics. Take a look:http://pennstatehershey.org/web/humanities/home/resources/comicbookMichael Green
This reminds me of my first patient interview - they sent us in as pairs in second year so we would be more comfortable. We interviewed a breast surgery patient for an hour. We presented her to the breast surgeon, who could not contain her amusement when we finally finished with her depression history and moved onto all the pets she had ever owned.
Yeah, I'd say you nailed it. Even in residency, my consult notes were 2 pages.Today?"Neurology consult, dictated.Stroke. Start Aspirin. Check tests."
So amazingly accurate.
I love the way you take my stuff and make it funny :-)-jess
I know a doc who wrote in a note during residency, "Poked patient with stick. Did not move." No one ever mentioned it to him so he concluded that no one reads resident notes.
LMAO, It's so true!!
ha ha ha
I remeber thinking that exact thing when I was dealing with traumas at 4am.
Great stuff !!! I like the edgy side of looking at medical practice
