If Doctors Had Similar Job Prospects as Attorneys

H/T to Esq. Never for sending me this hilarious Craigslist ad. Sounds similar to the shitlaw positions you find in the legal help section, doesn't it?

Brain Surgery Intern

Date: 2009-07-16, 3:47PM EDT

Need a Brain Surgery Intern ASAP! I have just been diagnosed with a brain tumor and the doctor says that I only have 3 months to live unless I have brain surgery. This is an unpaid operation, but you will receive credit and snacks while you are operating. This is a good way to build up your resume by networking with others who need free surgery. If you do a good job, and I live, this may lead to future PAID surgeries!

If you have your own surgery tools and anesthesia, that is a plus and you move to the front of the line.

Please respond with a link to all of the operations that you have performed, transcripts from the universities that you attended, and a copy of your MCAT scores.
Please only respond if you are SERIOUS. You must be a team player and have your own car.

  1. I fed your fish.

  2. Thank you. They are neglected. I can't afford fish food.

  3. That'll never happen, medicine is actually a restricted field, unlike our crappy profession. I actually could have gone to medical school and at interviews I've frequently gotten that question, and there really is no good answer because you have to be an idiot to go to law school over medical school. It's like getting the law school question for non-legal positions except even worse.

  4. If med school were like law school, you would also learn about surgeries from textbooks alone, and by working out pointless hypotheticals that will NEVER occur in actual practice.
