Former Music Students, You Will Be Pitied

Former music students, you unfortunate breed.

You thought you left your sordid past behind, but you really didn’t. Not at postgraduate medical school.

When it comes to percussion and auscultation jokes, you’ll hear them all repeatedly.

Given your musical background, every clinician will proclaim how wonderful your percussion is going to be.

Every clinician will tell you how well you’ll hear the heartbeat.

And every clinician will think they’re the first to say it.

Ahh, friend! You have a long road ahead of you.
