I confess. During Math I would place Forbes/Money in between my textbook pages and read in total and absolute bliss about stocks and the such.

Which is why Anes. is the perfect thing for me. :laugh: I'd fit right in. :love:

After shadowing (and watching the 2nd-4th season of scrubs again) it seemed like there were some unwritten stereotypes between different specialties. I was wondering if you guys had any?

Orthopedic Surgeon: Jocks
CT Surgeon: Jock that's on honor role
Anesthesiologist: Last semester senior who has already gotten into a top university and sits back and reads "Forbes" magazine during class
Gastroenterologist: Goth
Cardiologist: Chess club
Female OBGYN: Cheerleaders
Male OBGYN: Male Cheerleaders
General Surgeon: Bully that has a soft spot
Podiatrist: The kid no one knows goes to school
Family Medicine: Laid back guy who slept in on the day of the SAT (or Step 1)
Plastics: Ladies man
Ophthalmologist: The 4.0 that everyone thinks is going to community college
Neurologist: Tennis star
Emergency Medicine: The guy who does doughnuts and drives 40 mph in the parking lot on his mustang
Derm: Doesn't do any work but sets the curve on every test
Psychiatry: Magic club that meets behind the gym



what's your list?
I'm a guy, I cheered in high school and for two colleges, and I have no interest in OB/GYN. But I was also a jock, and also on honor roll. Hmm.

I definitely would fit the personality of an orthopedic surgeon just because my amount of confidence sometimes is perceived as cockiness haha. But I'm happy with that seeing as I want to be a trauma surgeon.

Obviously that cartoon is outdated not reflecting orthopedics in today's world. I mean who listens to Green Day anymore?
