Going into medicine, it is wholly expected that one will have to experience all sorts of less-than-pleasant things, ranging from catastrophic traumatic injuries, to the aromas of festering abscesses, and yes...digital rectal/prostate exams. Needless to say, it is similarly expected that physicians are mature enough to maintain a modicum of basic ethics and professionalism about these sorts of things, at least in front of the patient and in public settings. These soft skills are not usually something that needs to be extensively taught in class, but rather attributes of high-quality individuals with some basic integrity and human decency.

Is it any surprise, then, that it's mostly midlevels (like this nurse practitioner by the name of Mallory Rose Milavec) creating ultra-cringey TikTok videos demonstrating their sheer lack of these attributes? Since when did you hear a physician publicly describe a patient as an "experienced model in male genital assessment" and describe a rectal exam in terms as crass and uncouth as "fingers up in his butthole"? Maybe you could get away with laughing privately about it with your colleagues, but what would it be like to be the patient in question discovering a video like this after-the-fact? It would be infinitely humiliating, not to mention a gross violation of privacy.

At #15 on the US News list of Best Medical Schools, we've always held the University of Michigan Medical School in high esteem. If NP Milavec's extracurricular TikTok endeavors are any indication, the same can't be said about their nursing school. In which course do they teach the concept of using proper medical terminology and not describing a prostate exam as "fingers up in his butthole"? Maybe it's the same course where you're taught to not make TikTok videos that publicly humiliate your patients?

If this NP lacks the good sense to refrain from publishing a crude, demeaning video like the one above for all of the internet to see, we can only imagine what her bedside manner and clinical judgment are like. As a stroke coordinator, does she also poke fun at people who can't move their arms or legs?
