Today, I witnessed my first rectal exam.

I am now cringing in anticipation of the day I update this thing to say, "Today, I did my first rectal exam."

*shudder*

That was when I realized what being a Doctor really means. People don't just see you as someone who did a lot of school and achieved a high degree, or even as someone who has the power to save lives...you are the COMPLETE STRANGER they trust enough to allow you to put a (gloved) finger up their ass after 2 minutes of introductory pleasantires.

You might laugh, but I feel that's a fairly serious statement.

Unless, of course, you're Steph and terrified of doctors/hospitals and punch out anyone in rage with a medical degree. :P

there is some truth in that statement... but I don't think it is the medical degree -- I punch nurses too. :)

I felt bad for the patient when I witnessed my first rectal exam. I was one out of four other interns in a small room just observing the doctor shoving two fingers up her ass.
