00:00 - 00:03The medicine and ED teams are dropping like flies.
00:04 - 00:05Med students graduated early
00:05 - 00:07to help with the COVID patients
00:08 - 00:12Urology and ENT are already on the wards.
00:12 - 00:15Even plastics is helping out the ICU.
00:17 - 00:19Ortho is protected.
00:19 - 00:21We still have trauma cases to cover.
00:24 - 00:26Program director...
00:27 - 00:28Ortho...
00:31 - 00:33Ortho is being pulled to the floors...
00:34 - 00:36to the ED and the ICU.
00:53 - 00:58PAs, NPs, and medical students need to leave
01:13 - 01:15What the fuck is this shit?!
01:15 - 01:17This is complete bullshit!
01:18 - 01:23I did not score a 260 on my step 1
01:25 - 01:28and suffer through 4 away rotations
01:29 - 01:31to treat pneumonia!
01:31 - 01:34I am a highly trained SURGEON
01:34 - 01:37who specializes in arthroscopy, tendon transfers,
01:37 - 01:40joint replacements, and spinal fusions!
01:40 - 01:42Sir, they will use us on proning teams first.
01:42 - 01:46I don't care about proning teams!
01:46 - 01:48They need us. We are the strongest specialty.
01:48 - 01:52I don't bench over 250 so I can prone patients.
01:53 - 01:54I do it to fix bones!
01:56 - 01:57Stop acting like such a pansy.
01:57 - 02:00I bet you skip leg day and wear lifting gloves.
02:00 - 02:03You belong with the other medicine nerds.
02:04 - 02:08I hope you enjoy percussing people's bellies
02:08 - 02:13and pretending like it's actually useful...
02:14 - 02:16and doing rectal exams on C. Diff patients...
02:17 - 02:21Rounding for 4 hours a day and jerking off to Frank-Starling curves.
02:27 - 02:29The trachea and lungs are flimsy.
02:30 - 02:34I like things with substance and strength.
02:34 - 02:36Like bones and metal!
02:41 - 02:42All those hours wasted...
02:43 - 02:47reading Rockwood and Green's and Hoppenfeld.
02:48 - 02:53Reducing distal radius fractures to near anatomic position
02:54 - 02:56Now we're being downgraded
02:56 - 02:59to managing diabetes, CHF, and COPD.
03:00 - 03:02Our muscles will atrophy!
03:04 - 03:07It's okay. We still have protein shakes.
03:14 - 03:16I guess I'll go get my reflex hammer.
03:19 - 03:23Or that dangly thing they call a "stethoscope".
03:25 - 03:26We're fucked.
03:31 - 03:33We will go to the floors...
03:40 - 03:46We learned medicine once, and we knew it better than these people.
03:46 - 03:49Shove that 'dumb jock' stereotype up their asses.
03:53 - 03:56Bros, dismissed.
