How about getting in the way?;)Ohh, I am so glad to be out of those days!
My achievement this summer: looking like a fool in front of scrub nurses.
This cartoon was inspired by a university-wide email at my residency saying that med students were NOT to be used to pick up drycleaning.
How about getting hit by bloody projectiles because we have gotten in the way?
..and managing to get a comletely different history off the same patient as your resident who goes there after you?
Ach, I was going to add 'getting in the way' and 'fetching blankets for the patient'.
As a med student I always excelled at making the trauma patient drink all the PO contrast.
If I wasn't allowed to do it myself I used to hold the old ladies hands while they had biopsies.
Hovering is definitely one of the skills perfected as a med student. As a 4th year, I can't wait to be done standing around feeling awkward and useless.
