Ahh, residents

So as part of my job, I have family practice residents in my clinic learning office GYN.

I had a patient come in recently for her postpartum check. She is a lesbian in a relationship with a great gal.

My resident was insisting that she needed birth control. I looked at the patient, smiled and winked. He just kept going deeper to my and the patient's amusement.

We finally reminded him that her partner is female...pregnancy for them requires some extra interventions.

I remember those days.

Last medical student I had fainted while I was doing an EMG. The patient's wife caught him on the way down.

Yeah, we've all shoved our foot so far down our throats it's coming out our ass. It's part of the training, didn't you read the fine print?
