Today we were doing EKG's on each other and starting talking about our upcomming OCASE (basically it is clinical exams with actor patients who pretend to have various ailments). You go through 12 stations and have no idea what you'll be faced with (as we've covered about 20 examinations/histories).
I was with a small handful of my group members (i.e the 10 people that I spend 8 hours a week with in tutorial and clinical skills sessions) and we started discussing how twisted the sense of humor is with the faculty here. For example, apparently last year one of the stations during the exam consisted of one of our very esteemed the senior professors (and assistant Dean) sitting at a table with a giant red dildo on it and the station was to explain how to put a condom on and safe sex teaching.
Imagine a guy you see every day in a 3 piece suit that you only run into at big med events and you, in your exam nervousness, having to put a condom on a dildo for him. Cruel. Evil. But the twisted part of me gets a chuckle out of how genius it is.
Anyway in this discussion one of my group mates pipes up:
Classmate: Oh I didn't listen to any of that lecture on sexual health because I won't ever have to explain to a patient how to put a condom on, so it didn't apply to me.
Me: Oh yeah, why is that?
Classmate: Because I am only going to provide information on NFP in my practice.
Me (thinking--'NFP' is going to stand for something irritating so I shouldn't even ask...): NFP?
Classmate: Natural family planning. I don't condone the use of condoms.
