Thoughts on the Occasion of My Wife’s Completion of Two Years of Medical School

Anyone who says that law school should be more like medical school hasn’t spent much time around medical students. My colleague Cameron Stracher has a point that the quasi-apprenticeship that is the last two years of medical school does make newly-minted doctors at least minimally competent when it comes to working with actual patients. But I can report the first two years of medical school are such a Dickensian affair that they make the miseries of law school seem like a casual Sunday jaunt on the seashore with ice cream and balloons for all.
