QUALITY TEACHING DOES IMPACT
Surgeons, I have to say honestly, they shred each other to pieces. That was a big turn-off. I can stand sleep deprivation for 10 years, but I can’t stand five minutes with the way they get at each other; to be rude to each other, to be rude to the house officers who couldn’t fight back, and to be rude to the students who couldn’t say anything in defense.

OB/GYN was not far behind surgery in negative comments!!
