The Bullying Culture of Medical School

Go here to read, if you are interested.

One of my friends was already made to cry by an attending who pretty much told her she was the dumbest med student she ever met (paraphrased) and then made her present as she was crying. Someone else was told after submitting an H&P to an attending, that the H&P was the epitome of her stupidity. SMH.

Some doctors forget what it was like to be a student pretty quickly. I bet the meanest doctors were douche bags as students. I doubt you automatically change personalities once you become an MD. 


  1. Reminded me of a post from one of my blog haunts: http://doccartoon.blogspot.com/2012/08/depression-and-medical-training.html.

  3. Hey, I add to comment on this because last month I was googling “ What to do when you’re attending yells at you”… I really didn’t find any info so I made up my own answer; the next day, I confronted him!. Hold up…hold, up… a little background here, I am a 3rd yr resident and my attending was in his 2nd yr as an attending. After going ballistic on me in front of my 2 juniors, he attempted to apologize to me the next day. Well, I gave it to him and it felt good. Would i advise you to do the same as a med student…NO! but know there is light at the end of this ridiculously long tunnel!


Hey guys, welcome to my blog. Sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
