While everyone has heard jokes about how hard medical students and trainees around the world work--ie if a professor asked a medical student to memorize a telephone directory, the only question they would ask would be 'when is it due?'--there is also another side to medicine. What fun, interesting, or unique traditions define medical education/training in your country?
In the United States there is the 'white coat ceremony' where first-year students are formally given their white medical coats as a symbol of the start of their medical careers. In the United Kingdom there is the 'doctor's mess', a cross between a break-room and a social club just for medical trainees (or junior doctors as they are known in the UK) where you can always find a hot cup of tea and a slice of toast with jam.
