Medical humor can sometimes tick people off, even if it rings true. Take this funny pay for performance commentary on the state of nephrology, for example…

With the way reimbursement is going and the trend with lots of physician practices being consumed by local health systems, it’s only a matter of time until some of the remaining outliers find creative ways to keep their practices afloat… like say, this guy… Check out this funny “joint” venture comic.
For you opportunists out there, this might be a good time to open a snack shop next to your practice. Maybe you could work some sort of Medical Marijuana Munchies Combo Deal.

Dude… not how I’d want to be remembered…
I was looking up “hemoccult stool” in Google Images for my next blog post, and this guy was on page 2.
Sure… call me strange… but when I was perusing the latest issue of ACP Hospitalist, I came across a photo from a recent IDSA Conference.
IDSA (Infectious Disease Society of America), of course, is a well-respected organization of healthcare professionals devoted to patient care, education, research, public health, and prevention relating to infectious diseases.
Well, I wondered as I looked at the audience in this photo…
What’s up with all of the baldness and receding hairlines in the ID crowd?
(Not that there’s anything wrong with that…)
PS – I blurred out the faces because nothing screams “LAWSUIT!” more than bunch of angry, bald doctors.
Infection control humor for education?…
Evidence-based medicine cartoon books?…
What next? Agreement on healthcare reform?!
Look… the educational materials in the healthcare professions can be pretty dry, downright boring, and ultimately, awesome dust magnets. So, we’re trying to change things a little bit (and not without some controversy).
We’re releasing a new book today – a funny, witty, medical humor book with evidence-based advice on infection control practices. This isn’t some cute little healthcare limerick you post up at staff meeting… or some cheesy nursing clip art for bulletin boards that no one looks at…
No. This is Bugs on Scrubs, a hilarious argument between a nurse and a doctor about who is spreading infection – and an interesting, all-too-familiar twist at the end. We’re releasing it today at the pre-ISBN, pre-real-publication price of only 10 bucks.
Medical humor and medical education have a love child, Bugs on Scrubs, and it’s only 10 clams.
This thing is awesome for staff orientation, infection control initiatives, and getting those picky Joint Commissioners off your organization’s back. Oh yeah… and the holidays too. This book makes a great gift for nurses, doctors, hospital administrators, techs, therapists, and that dude that always wipes his nose right before he tries to shake your hand. Check it out.
Funny stuff from GiggleMed’s medical comics series – Doctors of Destiny.
We all know some people who begin to look like their pets, or couples who begin to look like each other as they get older. Well, we’ve posed the question, “What if doctors began to resemble their very own area of expertise.”
Check out those tufts of hair… and that RCA on his nose. Man… I just wanna stent that thing… don’t you.
Here’s a link to the other Doctors of Destiny Comics up to this point… More funny medical comics coming your way.
Doctors’ handwriting is no laughing matter.
Being a doctor myself, I decided to take healthcare reform into my own hands. Here is step number one… a handwriting course for physicians.
By the way, try to ignore the subliminal messages embedded in this workbook. Those darn administrators and Joint Commissioners always slip stuff in there… don’t they?

Pharmaceutical lunches aren’t just about the doctors and the reps… What about everyone else in the periphery?… the food stores… the squishy toy makers…
And these guys?…
Who’s looking out for them? Huh? When is their bailout coming?
Some people knew what they wanted to be from the very beginning. And just like some people begin to look like their pets, we’ve run into a few doctors and healthcare die-hards who begin to look like their very own area of expertise.
Here’s number 2 in one of the newest medical humor series from GiggleMed.com – a series of doctor jokes and comics related to subspecialties… Doctors of Destiny :)
In the immortal words of Obi Wan Kenobi…
Of course, Old Ben never smoked… and you shouldn’t either.
(Master Yoda on the other hand…. I’m not so sure)
