You know you’re studying GI when this is the joke Dr. Goljian makes:
“It’s not a very nice test to do, sending stool to the laboratory It always gets lost. I can’t imagine how something like that gets lost. But it always does. Especially 72 hour stool collections. For which you probably have to bring in a wheelbarrow. I don’t know how something that big gets lost. It’s an amazing thing. Send it by FedEx, anything, it gets lost!”
For those of you who’re cursed to study Pathology, Goljian (and Pathoma’s Dr. Sattar) are some of the best out there!
