Re: Medical students still suffer mistreatment by faculty, resident doctors, and nurses, US report says
The professions are like fraternities and sororities, and hazing is part of the training. This hazing is a mixed blessing. It paradoxically promotes ego strength and esprit de corps, but it also promotes sadism and egotism. So we should temper this hazing with compassion, humility, and humor. Let’s remember that trainees are future colleagues, and they deserve our respect.
