SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I was shadowing an Emergency physician before clinicals, and the only advice he gave to me was to not wear my stethoscope around my neck. He gave some weird diatribe about posers and compensation, but I just sort of laughed it off. Now that I'm in clinicals, I guess I remember his ranting and keep my stethoscope in my coat pocket, which I find to be much more comfortable than being around my neck. Where do you guys keep your stethoscopes?
