Lorenzo D. (the one who inspired the term.) Anyways. Today I thought of scary-smart Roy A. and all that he taught me that month. I amused myself thinking of the look on my face every day on rounds with Roy. Lawd. The things he came up with! I'm talking the most obscure of the obscure to the most relevant of the relevant. No matter what it was, Roy knew at least a little something about it. And. . .dare I say it? A whooooole lot of times he knew more about it than his attending. Sure did.
That Roy. He was so bright and fun to work with. Man, I learned a ton from him. Yeah, I said it. I learned a TON from him, my resident. Sure did.
You got a problem with that?
Here's a re-creation of me on wards with Roy A. . . . .
At the end of the month, Roy said, "Oh, Dr. Manning! I learned so much working with you! Thank you so much!"
And I was thinking, "You learned so much? Uhhhh, okay."
Happy Thursday. Oh--where is Roy now? Somewhere scaring the stethoscopes off of the Cardiology attendings in his Cardiology fellowship as we speak.
