I need an idea for a graduation gift for someone who is going to medical school as well. Their medical school provides lab coats, and doesn't recommend buying a stethoscope before hand as they will give discounts on the right kinds etc.

I need ideas for something else preferably under $100

Current med students: anything you wish you had before going in?

Thanks!

A nice coffee pot or espresso machine. For 75-100 bucks you can get a pretty cool one.

...and it's < $100!

(unless the hooker wants more money)
or get it for free on the internet. "sex" is probably the most searched term on google, kind of like "investment banking vs. medicine" on sdn.

My brother got this gift and it was pretty cool. It was a metal flask saying [insert name] M.D.

You don't have to do a flask, but anything personally embroidered is pretty cool.

just give a gift card. But if you can, give a palm or an ipod.
I just got a Palm TX as a med school gift... boy, what a toy! We need a TX for med school and it is something I can use while traveling (for internet and email),

i would INSTANTLY demean a medical student into pants-peeing humiliation if i saw them carrying anything with "Their Name, MD" unless it is a family heirloom and they're the 14th Richard
