Food for Thought

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

My cardiology professor, who is also a PA, told us a story today about her experience in clinical rotations. Long story short, during her cardiology rotation her cardiology surgeon preceptor ended up having bypass surgery. During her neurology rotation, her neurology surgeon preceptor fell out into a seizure while doing surgery on a brain tumor patient. She later found out the surgeon suffered the seizure due to a brain tumor.

So over time do your patients become contagious? Or is this simply irony?

Moral of the story: Choose your specializing profession wisely because you, too, could become your own patient.
