A comic look at twelve medical specialties

Reading Michelle Au, MD’s new (and, so far, hilarious) book This Won’t Hurt a Bit prompted me last night to check out her Scutmonkey comics and blog. I thought this one, which looks at twelve medical specialties, was particularly funny. An excerpt is above. And, for those of you in academic medicine, I also recommend checking out “The Life of an Attending (As Imagined by Residents)”.

    The orthopedics comic strip is brilliant, especially since I am seeing an orthopedic surgeon now for a broken ankle.
