Medical Students Beat Law Students in Song Parody Match-Up

Doctors and LawyersAdding to the ongoing battle for supremacy between the two dominant professions–law and medicine– seeks your input as to who does the best song parodies, law students or medical students?  Many examples of each populate YouTube, so I just picked the two with the most views.

They’re both impressive and hilarious in my view, but I give the nod to the med students in this particular Fight Club Doctor-Lawyer Parody Video Match-Up.

Law Students (Law School parody of Payphone by Maroon 5)

Medical Students (I Don’t Know parody of Let it Go from Frozen)

I argued in a law review article that doctors and lawyers should learn to work together out of self-interest.  They need each other.  Public esteem in all professions is on the decline.  Lawyers and doctors shouldn’t contribute to it by bashing each other.  And both groups are already stressed out enough.  Studies show members of both professions suffer high depression, substance abuse and even suicide rates.   The stress starts early, as you can see in both of these videos.  Indeed, it’s arguably the main theme of both.

Great job by both groups in creating these fun stress relievers for others.  Long live Medico-Legal humor (new category I just made up)!
