I just graduated from a very international medical school, The Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI for short).
About 80% of my colleagues hailed from around the world (only 20% of my class was Irish). I have asked my various associates who just started "interning" to send me "lessons" that they have learned since starting their internship just a few months ago.
So, compiled from all around the world by newly graduated doctors who are now "minty fresh interns......"

"Lessons Learned by Random International Surgical Interns"
Lesson 1: "Newly instituted Hospital Visitor Infection Control"
Dear Educated Nobody,
A completely bald man entered the hospital reception and sterilised his hands with the Spirigel. The man then proceeded to rub the alcohol gel into his shiny scalp. 6 years of medical school and I am quite unhappy that this "New" sterilizing technique was never taught to me before I became a Surgical Intern.
p.s. You know I have great hair.
