Sick of Being A Student

Published April 16, 2009 8:50 AM by Lisa Catenacci
In approximately three weeks, our last clinical will be over and we will be on our way to graduation and being a real PT. In the meantime, I got this email/poem from a friend of mine, who is less-than-thrilled with his final clinical rotation. Enjoy.  

(Let me just cover my bases before you read below- I love my clinical, couldn't be happier with my CI, and am truly enjoying every minute of my experience in Arizona.) 

Roses are red
I can no longer lie
I can't stand my clinical
Or my CI.

I can't be myself
I can't stand old people
I hate dealing with urine
And everything fecal.

I can't wait til the end
It can't come soon enough
These last three weeks
Will surely be rough.

I am worked to the bone
Yet do not get paid
It's the life of a student
I sure got it made!

I can give it my best
Yet can do nothing right
The light at the end
Does not seem so bright.

But in a few weeks
I shall be free
I can treat how I want
Once more, I'll be me



Your friend must really think his clinical sucks.  I mean... that sounds awful.  I feel really bad for him.  He seems like a stand up guy, and to be put into that kind of situation.  He should get some sort of award for surviving such dire circumstances.
