They must be in the right language, though. :P

This is one of the situations where "Your mom"-jokes would be inappropriate, right? :ask:

I'm not a med student, but yes, if you get a nice one and not one of those dragons that seem to thrive on swallowing med students whole you can certainly learn a lot. :nod:

Any time. :thumbup: :grin:

Seriously, since I've never known another university but the medical university of Vienna, I don't know how anything could actually be better, as I've never experienced anything else (student-wise). Sad and simple logic here... :?

So far I've mostly encountered nice ones, especially in my year of civilian service, where I already learned quite a lot of things. So I'm not that much of a useless idiot who always stands in the way, and I actually know what these people do for a living, and thus respect them for it. Wiping old people's bottoms for a year certainly lets you appreciate the fact that you're only doing this for one year...

However, Reizbarkeit has not merely the clinical meaning that has been explained. It is contained in the traditional catalogue of the defining properties of life, where it means "being responsive to stimuli".

By the way, how is this thread defined as being written in English? By the OP?

Edited to add: Reisbarkeit could also mean: e. g. for a region, the degree how easy it is to travel there.

I worked with an Emergency Registrar that paid his way through Medical School by being an assistant-in-nursing. Several years of bed making, pan changing, bum wiping, taking observations and talking to sick, lonely people certainly gave him a sense of humility and appreciation for what all members of the medical team does. He turned out a very, very good doctor and went on to become an Orthopaedic Surgeon after becoming an Emergency Physician.

In a medical team, there's lots of stuff we can learn from each other. I once taught a first year doctor how to insert a nasogastric tube when I was called up to x-ray the patient's chest for NGT placement and mentioned that the x-ray was unnecessary given that I could see the tube curled up in the patient's mouth. The doctor had never inserted one and was left to their own devices to have a go at it. Having seen it done thousands of times, I talked them through the process and yes, it was inserted successfully. So, be nice to x-ray people too !
