The Story

It’s the year 2030.  The UMass Pathology Department is having a reunion and it’s very boring and awkward.  Everyone starts complaining about how difficult life is as an attending.  Dr. Richey suggests everyone think about how much worse it was during residency and then they won’t feel so bad about where they are now.

Enjoy this funny parody video based on the song “My Favorite Things” from the musical “The Sound of Music.”

Comment below about your “least” favorite things during residency!

Lyrics

Grossing a whole leg with the sock still on it

Necrotic bowels can make me still vomit

Think of the time when we lost the derm stat,

Looking for lymph nodes through piles of fat

Bloody placentas or those bloody surgeons

Pages for platelets could be such a burden

Fragmented margins when grossing a breast

Compared to that being attending’s the best

Inadequate pap smears or cauterized margins

Trying to learn all that new patho jargon

What was the fourth name for that one disease?

These were a few of my least favorite things!

When my job bites, when the lab stinks, when I’m feeling sad,

“I simply remember” path residency and then I don’t feel so bad!

 

Tense unknown conferences, menacing mentors

Fridge at the Uni with all of its odors

All of the brain cells that died from xylene

These were a few of my least favorite things

Needing to scan on 100x daily

Dripping cholecystectomy gravy

Getting to fifty autopsies

These were a few of my least favorite things

No patient info and digging for history

So many platforms were driving me crazy

Seeing the lab buy one giant TV

While struggling to feed my small family of three

When my job bites, when the lab stinks, when I’m feeling sad,

“I simply remember” path residency and then I don’t feel so bad!

 

When my job bites, when the lab stinks, when I’m feeling sad,

“I simply remember” path residency and then I don’t feel so bad!
