Another reminder of what people think of professors

A student organization asked in a medical professional to come give a talk this week.

During this talk, this physician told the students that some their professors had “a chip on their shoulder” because couldn’t get into medical school, and took it out on students by refusing to give them As.

That ticked me off a little.

I have chips aplenty on my shoulder. But none are because I wanted to get into med school and couldn’t. I don’t know of any professor who was a failed med student.

And it's that sort of arrogance that contributes to the disdain that many PhDs hold for MDs.
