Richard Smith's observation of medical students -

... "So I’m very “right on,” and I try hard not to be boring. But sometimes it doesn’t work, and it hurts me. I feel I’ve let down my students. And medical students, I’ve discovered, are much harder to teach than doctors. Many doctors expect little. They are grateful for “a bit of peace” and a day away from seeing patients.Whereas medical students are fed up with being talked at, sitting in rows, listening to some dope trying to teach them something that doesn’t interest them. They’d rather be putting up drips, riding around in ambulances, cutting up a corpse, or defibrillating somebody. They want action not talk."
