Work it out

When I was in medical school, I ran into a friend of mine in the bookstore one day. He told me he was about to start his OB/GYN rotation another month and he wanted my advice on something. I had already taken the rotation so I assumed he was going to ask me some sort of academic question.

Instead, he said, "do you think I should start working out?"

"What?" I said.

"Well," he said. "All the residents on OB/GYN or women, right? So maybe they'd appreciate it if I started working out and were in shape."

I didn't know what to say. "Um, you can start working out for yourself…"


  1. At my school, that would have definitely worked...

  2. He does have a point. I've seen women go googly eyed over "handsome" doctors. That being said, gyn probably more than ob.

  3. Meh. I started working out my arms during OBGYN. Just because I got tired of sweating during C-sections for morbidly obese women. I'm a girl, for what it's worth.
