    The last one about med students is definitely
    True. Or at least it was when I was in med school, which was about 20 years ago.
    And although it kinda sucks for patients now, I hope it doesn’t change.
    Doctors have to learn.
    Am a vascular surgeon now. I haven’t thought about female issues since my med school Ob gyn rotation in 2001.
    But I was allowed, by a patient, to palpate her ovarian mass on that ob rotation.
    In 2019, a woman came to me for varicose veins in her legs. Her symptoms were weird, she never went to doctors. I was the first MD she’d seen in a decade.
    I hadn’t done a female exam since 2001, but did one on her. Recognized her cystic ovarian mass right away. All because that one lady allowed me to examine her almost 20 years earlier.
