Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

You might be a medical student if: 

1. You can sit through hours of lectures on depressing topics and still be excited about your education. 

2. You believe that popular songs are really all about determination to get through medical school. 

3. Better yet, you re-write popular love songs so they apply better to your asexual relationship with your textbooks. 

4. You can’t decide if your headaches are from tension, your worsening vision (thanks, small print Goodman & Gilman!), a brain tumor, or your chronic bruxism

5. You’re still struggling with the knowledge that you will, soon, have to touch a stranger’s breast or penis

6. You are so focused on learning where superior colliculus is that you fail to take advantage of the ample zombie-joke opportunities that presented themselves in neuroanatomy lab. 

7. You’ve responded to a call for medical assistance and have been turned away

8. You’ll practice physical exams on anything that sits still

9. Half the food in your kitchen has already been used for practicing medical procedures
