Have you guys ever noticed that each July - in cities and towns all across America with hospitals that are home to medical residency programs - there are always a few brand new resident doctors that just happen to run into the grocery store with their scrubs and stethoscopes on?
It's usually guys. They can't seem to contain their excitement about actually being a physician and, well, it looks really cool. They also don't realize that in about 6 months they're going to wish they could take their stethoscopes off and strangle their classmates, residency director, and hospital administrators who keep beating on them to discharge patients early on rounds, watch their use of formulary-restricted antibiotics, and park in the right spot in the hospital parking lot goddamit.
It's an interesting phenomena. And let's face it, chicks dig the long stethoscope.
