The 10 Laws of Medicine


  • First Law: The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature takes its course.
  • Second Law: It is impossible to make an asymptomatic patient feel better.
  • Third Law: The urgency of the test is inversely proportional to the IQ of the insurance company preauthorization clerk.
  • Fourth Law: There is no cure for stupid.
  • Fifth Law: Bad things really do happen to good people.
  • Sixth Law: The better the surgeon, the more reluctant s/he is to operate.
  • Seventh Law:
    Part A: It has to be fun.
    Part B: If it isn't fun, see Part A.
  • Eighth Law: Half of what is taught in medical school is wrong, but no one knows which half.
  • Ninth Law: Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
  • Tenth Law: A bad idea held by many people for a long time is still a bad idea.
