These are some random words of wisdom that I heard as a medical student from my residents. I committed these statements to memory and repeated them as much as possible. I want to reproduce these words of wisdom so as to preserve them for all eternity.
"When I was an intern I never knew what I was doing and I was always all over the place."
"Go home and study. Otherwise you'll end up matching in medicine like me."
"I miss being an intern because nobody expects you to know anything. You can make all the dumb mistakes you want and then just be like, 'What do I know? I'm just an intern.'"
"What does CHF stand for again? Is that like.... congenital heart failure?" (this is sort of like the opposite of wisdom)
"What sucks is when you go through all the work of medical school and then you can't even do the field that you want to do."
"Now that I've done three years of ob/gyn, I could become a malpractice lawyer and I'd clean up. I could look at the fetal heart tracing and tell you the exact second that baby should have been delivered. Of course, in real life, it doesn't work that way."
"What's the most common cause of right heart failure? Left heart failure. Whenever I ask a question, I always tell you the answer immediately so it's not pimping." (The wisdom is in the last sentence, since the first sentence is common knowledge. Except for that resident who didn't know what CHF was.)
