ER Resident Posts Cadaver on Facebook

and is now in SERIOUS hot water (now being investigated by state health dept and her ER residency at Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island where she is a PGY2 is now on the line). The above photo which was taken by this resident of a fellow medical student (who could also find himself on the chopping block …Thanks for the tag!) is apparently now going viral and can easily be found online with a simple google search. Now whenever this particular resident googles her name, hundreds of hits involving this incident will pop up for posterity! You know future employers are going to love that! I wouldn’t be surprised if this story winds up on the front page of yahoo real soon. To those on the outside of medicine, this pic of a medical student giving two thumbs up in the presence of a cadaver could be erroneously seen as being as sensational as those involving the prison wardens of Abu Ghraib.

You can read more of the lurid details here 

Looks like one of her facebook “frenemies” turned her in. Reminds me of the story I posted sometime back about the chief surgical resident in Arizona who got expelled from residency after taking a pic of his patient’s hot rod penis on his phone cam and was allegedly snitched out by one of the OR nurses (according to a source). In the cut throat world of medicine this does not surprise me in the least.

Why is photography even permitted in the gross anatomy lab in the first place with cadavers all over the place??? This is 2010 and we now live in the digital age. I’m sorry but this resident is so screwed. She would have been better off having a secret sex tape leaked involving her than this. Don’t laugh. I am sure if given the choice she would agree with me and you would too!

    Why do people take stupid and incriminating pictures? And why do they post them on the internet?

    That’s uncalled for. The instructors keeps a close eye on us for having camera phones with us while we’re in Anatomy lab.

    Those two are screwed, seriously. 400 years ago it was commendable if a medical student “acquired” a cadaver for dissection (usually through grave robbery). Now giving a thumbs-up next to corpse can end your career. He posed for the picture though, so he was complicit in this stupidity.

    what ever happened to these two? I got screwed by miserable vindictive health care dicks in my career (twice actually). talk about socially awkward people projecting, in the process eating their young.
