I am very confused about this whole issue with the gunner. I guess I understand where people are coming from when they say that a gunner is someone who wants to be the best, and at the same time hopes that everyone else does badly. But, during rotations can't you do additional work outside of your cleckship? Maybe I am not understanding how the medical school rotations work, but I thought that, aside of your usual clerkship, you could shadow doctors if you wanted, you could scrub in for cases if you talked to the surgeon ahead of time etc., without actually stealing cases from people. And how do people steal cases anyway? Aren't there enough patients for everyone? don't people get sick anymore? I am curious, because I have not been through rotations yet. Thanks, Fritz. I know I have posted this into the gunner thread, but I got no response.
