pencil by medical specialty

Your specialty of choice fosters a certain way of doing things. We polled residents from several different specialties and asked them to describe this pencil.

Family Medicine: I’m already behind on my descriptions for four other pencils so we are going to have to limit this to visit to the eraser and the point, both of which seem to be in fine working order. See you back in one year, now where’s my dictaphone?

Internal Medicine: I mean it looks like a pencil but I need to perform a physical exam and percuss it to be diagnostically certain it isn’t harboring disease.

Emergency Medicine: It clearly ain’t broke or dying so out the door you go, there are 50 people waiting for rooms.

General Surgery: Was it in a butt?

OB/GYN: This is a genderless and non pregnant object, stop bothering me!

Ortho: Straight and hard like good bone. No need fix now. Get X-Ray to confirm.

Anesthesiology: Looks sharp, almost begging to crush some Sudoko.

Pathology: Gross description is… a pencil… this is stupid.

Radiology: We have here an approximately 10 cm, sharp at one end, blunt at the other device most closely resembling a pencil. The lead tip appears sharp and ready for use, the yellow paint is nice and even on its perfectly flat sides. The metal part that connects the eraser appears intact without blemish and the eraser itself appears unused. Impression: Pencil, can’t rule out novelty pen.

    Dr. Feelgood is a neurosurgeon in training who makes his patients feel good with some Colombian bam-bam and subsequently clips their ruptured aneurysms. Post op, he makes every one feel alright with the IV hydromorphone and by of course reading his Gomerblog articles and personal blog. He also plays recordings of his college band for patient's and their families in hopes that one of them will encourage him to quit and "get the guys back together." Sadly, this hasn't happened yet.
