Non-medical Hospital Lectures? Is This A Joke?

So, did you hear about the radiologist who married one of her patients? Everyone wondered what she saw in him.

Paul Greenberg probably didn’t use that old joke during his lecture last week at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, even though the lecture series is sponsored by the Department of Radiology. Greenberg did discuss laughter, but undoubtedly on a much more sophisticated level. He is, after all the former CEO of CollegeHumor Media, which specializes in such highbrow comedy as screenshots of accidentally suggestive TV weather maps.

Elliot Fishman, MD, a Johns Hopkins professor of radiology and oncology, planned the series of seven lectures, which are free but available only to the Johns Hopkins community. None of the speakers works in health care. However, Dr. Fishman said, they all have one important thing to offer:

These people are experts on people.

Dr. Fishman was quoted in a Johns Hopkins news release.

The lectures are known as the Patient Experience Advisory Team Conversation Series. “Engagement with patients is changing,” Dr. Fishman said, “and this is an opportunity for us.”

Bill Phillips, editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine, opened the series earlier this month, followed by Greenberg. Still to come are the following:

“The goal,” Dr. Fishman said, “is to bring in these people, listen to how they do things in their world, and bring that into our world.

Maybe they could also bring in some better radiology jokes. Anybody know any?
