Myths and Misunderstandings


The things everyone gets wrong about medicine and medical education

  • Your family and friends, maybe even students themselves before they got to med school, have some weird ideas about doctors and medical school. No matter where these ideas come from–medical dramas, social media, movies–chances are you’ll find yourself explaining them or falling for them.
  • M4s Mason and Talia, and M1s Jeff and Trent discuss the myths and misunderstandings they’ve heard about their world.
  • Also, stories of medical students embarrassing themselves. It’s part of learning, but also cringe.
