The Dual Degree Student Perspective on AOSC: Sorry Guys, That Must Really Suck

CHICAGO – As an MD/MPH student I wanted to personally extend my deepest sympathies to all you MD students and your AOSC  woes. From everything I’ve heard it’s been really hard on you guys. I mean, real talk, I typically zone out at the words “Area of…” But you guys have it real hard. And I just wanted to let you know on behalf of all the dual degree students we feel your pain. I mean, not literally, because we don’t have to sit through those lectures once a month on how to use the Internet or whatever it is you do. But, we do feel a little bad when we get to leave Hughes that extra hour early. Okay, not really. But we appreciate that it probably sucks to be you guys. Which counts for something, right?

And whatever’s going on with your summer funding? That sounds like it’s gotta suck. I mean us MPH students are getting a stipend for our summer work. And the PhD students are paying for all of med school with the years when they ought to be having their first-born child or something. So we don’t really know what it’s like to have to worry about paying for things during June and July. But we imagine that it must basically be the worst. All we can say is, hang in there guys. Our thoughts are with you and we really hope you pull through this in one piece.

How about a drink on us? By which we mean the federal government because we’re all paying for this $!@# with grants and loans anyways.
