How to Tell if your Med Student Isn't the Brightest Bulb in Box


  • He tells your 65 year old osteoporotic patient she cannot absolutely be pregnant while taking Fosamax
  • She thinks Malaysia is a Canadian city
  • She thinks urine microalbumin is a bacterium
  • When asked what is the function of the adrenals, he says "to make urine."
  • She tries to auscultate for heartsounds with the earpieces of the stethoscope on her neck, not in her ears
  • He suggests a pregnancy test prior to radioactive ablation of a 35 year old patient with Graves' disease. Except the patient's a man
Yup. These are true stories from the last 1.5 years.
