    1) Getting hungry during Anatomy sessions.

    [​IMG]




    Casually discussing lunch options over an open cadaver or comparing a human lung to a melon is a common part of anatomy dissection.


    2) Practicing OSCE’s on each other over and over and over and over


    [​IMG]



    ‘Hi, My name is _____ and I’m a Third Year Medical student. I’ve just been asked by the Doctor today to have a look at your heart, would that be okay with you?…’ Sound familiar?


    3) Watching all your friends graduate, getting jobs and getting married and you’re still in med school like…


    [​IMG]




    4) Never-ending ward rounds ‘shadowing’ doctors and you’re just like…


    [​IMG]






    Shadowing = doing absolute jack shit and floating around after doctors whilst they act like you’re not there. It should be called ‘Ghosting’.

    5) Night shifts/ On-Calls

    [​IMG]




    It should be illegal to have to stay at a hospital for that long and not get paid for it


    6) Medical Student Syndrome

    [​IMG]




    Being convinced that you have every disease you learnt that week and driving your GP insane. ‘I have a headache…and I’m always tired…I MUST HAVE KAWASAKI’S DISEASE.’



    7) Gunners

    [​IMG]





    They suck up to Consultants and volunteer to stay in the hospital for longer when you want to go home, making you look like a flake. And they should stay in the hospital for longer…more like forever…in the mental health unit.


    8) Having to learn a whole new language worth of medical words

    [​IMG]






    9) Hepaticocholangiocholecystenterostomies


    [​IMG]





    10) Taking all those entrance exams and interviews and wondering if it was all worth it

    [​IMG]






    11) Realising that Scrubs is all based on LIES.


    [​IMG]






    12) Using House and Greys Anatomy to revise


    [​IMG]





    13) Having to keep composed in Digital Rectal Examinations


    [​IMG]





    14) Ending up talking about medicine to your medic friends and your one non-medic friend is like…

    [​IMG]




    15) Still not having an answer for the dreaded question: “So why do you want to do Medicine?”


    [​IMG]



    16) You spend so long trying to get into medicine that once you got in you were like…

    Yea, why DO you want to become a doctor? I am sure the interview boards have heard it all. Mostly "because I want to help people". Priests to prostitutes want to help people. It is like the last loaded gun question in the interview board's arsenal and it is a good one.
