  • Funny stereotypes of specialties

    I read this online (regarding hospitalists):
    So I took my daughter to an ENT and he asked me if Hospitalists are “real doctors”. Further, he said “It helps me get a good night’s sleep knowing that I won’t be called to put in constipation meds in the middle of the night.”

    I thought that was pretty funny, especially since there is some truth to it. Got to be able to laugh at ourselves. Anyone else have any funny stereotypes about your own specialty that has some truth to it ?

    I heard this in medical school. Unfortunately there is probably some truth to it.



    Where do you hide a $100 bill from a hospitalist???


    In the wound dressings.





    Where do you hid a $100 bill from a surgeon???


    On their kids.

      Where do you hide a $100 bill from the radiologist? On the patient.

      Where do you hide a $100 bill from the psychiatrist? In the patient.

      Where do you hide a $100 bill from a cardiologist? Trick question. You can't hide a $100 bill from a cardiologist!

          I heard a good one about the MICU consulting an Oncologist to come say goodbye to a long time patient.

          Oncolgist rushed to their demented, trach/PEG’d, end stage cancer patient (to of course try one last dose of chemo) but was distraught to discover the patient was missing.

          As it turned out, nephrology had already come by and wheeled the patient off to get one more dialysis session in!

            He's a riot. My medical student daughter got me hooked on him. Some of the funniest caricatures ever.

              Doc Schmidt on Youtube has some pretty funny stuff. Of course, nothing he says about radiology is true at all.......

                I always heard it was "You can't hide a $100 bill from a plastic surgeon"

                          Wow. Shows my age. When I was a resident a lot of the jokes hid the $100 bill behind the EKG. (once a upon a time there were these things called paper charts….)

                              Why do they need to put nails in coffins?

                              1. To stop oncologists from giving another round of chemo.

                              2. To stop nephrologists from giving another round of dialysis.

                              Not quite as good as the oncologist/nephrologist combo joke above.


                              I'm sure some radiologist have some good ones about us ED Docs.
