The Bunion (Satire)
The Bunion is a place for satirical medical news and humor related to experiences with which medical students, faculty, and clinicians are all familiar. Such experiences can involve the FSU College of Medicine, the medical school experience, or healthcare in general. Content is not intended to offend or humiliate anyone. All names are factitious and any resemblance to actual people would be merely coincidental.
