    This is actually a serious legitimate answer, why is it funny or weird?

    I`m in med school. We have one practice session with a standardized patient (someone who`s being pay to act like a patient). All our other experience are on real patients on the wards on in clinic.

    They also call say "practicing" medicine. And honestly, what did you really think the answer would be? They practice on volunteers? Or somebody actually took the time to design and make a replica anus to practice on?

    It`s funny because most people have never thought about it before, and just the topic of people having things stuck in their butt is funny.
    But now it`s not funny because I had to explain it.

    There`s an issue recently brought to light about many teaching hospitals practicing vaginal/rectal exams on "non-consenting" patients while they are under anesthetic for another procedure. There`s a big debate whether or not it`s consensual because people don`t read what they sign before having surgery. It`s in the waiver that exams may be performed if they choose.

    This is such bullsh*t. We don`t "practice" on patients any more than we "practice" anything else in medicine - the truth is even weirder. There are people who hire out themselves as "model patients" and go around to second year medical classes at medical schools specifically to teach medical students how to properly and appropriately perform rectal, vaginal, and breast exams. A typical "model patient" who does this might have 150 medical students examine them over the course of a year, but hey, it`s a living.

    Yup, just like most practical things you do in medicine: you learn by doing.

    All doctors practice anything on real patients, with the exception of cutting some one open mind you. Even child birth can be attended by learning doctors and nurses if consent is given and there is an actual doctor present.
    Taking blood and basic gynecological exams can also be attended by a learning doctor.
    If I am given a chance to help some one learn medicine by allowing them to attend one of my exams, I will say yes. We need more good doctors running around.

    "Do you know what they call the guy in med school that partied all the time and just barely graduated?"

    Uhhhh, that`s not how it works. You don`t get into med school by partying all the time and you don`t stay in med school by partying all the time. Med school standards are incredibly high and most people wouldn`t last a week.

    Think about that for a minute....

    Every health professional has to have a first time performing any procedure on a patient. Or do you want a doctor that`s been putting their fingers in peoples` butts his or her ENTIRE LIFE doing your rectal exam?

    Certain hospitals are specifically learning hospitals and so if you check into one, you`re usually informed automatically that you would be consenting to have your case proceeded upon with doctors who are learning.

    Actually a few years ago on Howard Stern I heard a guy who practically made a living allowing residents practice rectal exams on him - he said he could make a few thousand dollars a month but admitted that his ass would get rather sore. Awk x 1000.
