Same thing happened to me during 3rd year path exam.I labeled a vertically placed liver as lung !
Ah poor thing. must have been super embarrassing. we have a girl like that in my class. Whenever the professor asks something in lecture, she always responds with some sort of extremely elaborate answer, which is either way more in depth than necessary (we're first years) or wrong. But hey, I give her props. I wish I had that kind of confidence to actually say something when I think I knew the answer. In this case I would have probably said, "Liver?" and looked up at the doc with big, frightened eyes.
I know! Med school has taught me how to master that look!
Thank goodness the error was in pathology and not before death, right?
I WISH that happened to the gunners in my class...
This made me laugh out loud! I think we've all been there at some time or another. Better in school than with a patient.
Oh my! This is SO TRUE!
My husband just said, "Yep"! Love this!
hahahahahaha that made my day
