It's been an interesting 4th year in many ways. I've found many attendings, especially in medicine, have respect for some fields and little respect for others. In my travels, it seems to me that ER docs and radiologists get disrespected most often in the hospital. Reasons I've heard are that ER docs are glorfied triage nurses and are weak physical examiners, and radiologists know nothing about real medicine and can be socially inept. I was told by a friend of mine that her PM&R uncle feels that radiology is the least respected medical field out there. I never heard of that before. Any thoughts, comments, or concerns?
