An Anesthesiologist’s Dilemma
Conversation between me and a friend applying to Anesthesiology, while discussing our upcoming CaRMS applications.
Me: “So you’re not going to miss talking to patients at all?”
Him: “Not at all, I get to do as much talking as I want pre and post-op”
Me: “You’re not going to miss having your own patients?”
Him: “I get patients for each case, I don’t have to worry after they leave the OR”
Me: “I guess the physiology is pretty cool and the drugs you use are pretty neat”
Him: “Yeah, plus you learn how to manage really sick patients and do lots of procedures”
Me: “Is there anything you’re going to miss at all?”
Him: “Hmmm… I guess I won’t get to wear dress clothes to work anymore… that sucks… I have such nice clothes”
