SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) This is directed at people still in medical school and on rotations. As we've figured out by now on the floors, medical students probably have to be the most annoying breed of (non)human beings ever created. They kiss up, show up early despite being told not to, ask stupid questions, ask good questions, do tasks and look up lab values that residents already know about, read review books during every spare millisecond on the wards, smile when a patient's O2 sat is below 85% (yay learning ), take up space, can't read anyone else's handwriting, have bad breath, take criticism a little too well, are always well-groomed, and say "thank you" 500 times a day. And me? Guilty as charged. So the question is... how will you evaluate medical students when, say 1-2 years from now, you're on the other side of the fence? Will you have compassion for your students and be nice to them and write them glowing evaluations? Will you put them in their place when they are out of line by writing a frank and honest assessment at how terrible they are? Or will you be a wuss and just give everyone HP?
