The lighter side: medical people having fun

Friday afternoon in August - who wants to be too serious? We think it's the perfect time to deploy the secret stash of medical-humor related videos we've been collecting,

The first is a feel-good clip performed by staff at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon to raise awareness for breast cancer.

The next clip is a Gilbert & Sullivan parody created by the Neuroscience Education Institute to be a little video played at the beginning of lectures presented by Dr. Stephen Stahl.

The Model of a Psychopharmacologist

The third clip is performed by the Laryngospasms, a group of practicing Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists who create and perform medical parodies for audiences throughout the United States.

Other gems
The Colorectal Surgeon Song - OK, this is not performed by actual medical folk, but well worth a listen anyway!

UAB Emergency Room Tap - created by ER nurses for a National Nurses' Week contest and celebration. UAB nurses and other staff members are featured in the video.

Breathe - another ditty by the Laryngospasms. More can be found at

Footloose: Nursing School Style - Baylor Louis Herrington School of Nursing cuts footloose.



Thank you for thinking of those of us still working on this Friday!

These are funny! It goes to show, some medical personnel do have a sense of humor. Thanks for sharing.
