All in a Row

Today's post is just an observation.  On many rotations (and so far it seems like neurosurgery especially since we're (understandably) not trusted to do a whole lot on our own), the med students are like little ducklings that follow our mother duck (the resident) around blindly.

(for clarification)
I have this vision that one day the resident is going to just stop short, and each of us is going to just just bump into the person in front of us, one after another.  This hasn't happened ....yet.  But one morning this week on the way to the cafeteria after rounds, one of the residents walked past the entrance to go to the bathroom and everyone did continue to follow until we realized where he was going.  Oops.

  1. I actually did follow one of the neurosurgery residents into the bathroom. To my credit, I was attached to a leash as punishment for being late.
