As of midnight last night, it’s official…
…I’m now an Associate Professor of Surgery.
So, are congrats in order, or should we join you in moaning about a bigger workload or something?
Congrats!! Celebrate big time!
Unfortunately that means more meetings and committees, [I presume] for no extra pay.
I would note that if no one else has so designated you, you are a full Professor of Medical Science Bloggery.
That’s great, congratulations!
Yee-ha! Congratulations! Wish I was still in DC to share a beverage or two at the Brickskeller.
Awesome! Much congrats.
Congrats, Orac! That’s wonderful and the students who have you will be very lucky!
Congratulations, Professor Orac!
And as if by a strange coincidence, I too am officially now a PhD as of June 30… quick! to the blog!
I wanted that job!
Of course I have no qualifications, knowledge or experience in the field, but in this day and age, why should that be a handicap?
Congrats! You certainly deserve it!
Congratulations Oh Mighty Orac, will there be some sort of ego adjustment required?
and I 2nd AblePharmboy, a virtual tip of the pint at the Brickskeller and three cheers!
Wow – congratulations!
Big news! Congrats!
In college we had to wait 10 minutes for instructors, 15 minutes for associate profs, 20 minutes for assistant profs and a halh hour for full profs.
Do your surgical patients now have to wait longer?
Congrats. With that I am sure comes a BIG raise, larger office, slinkier nurses, a better parking space, and, of course, a sharper scalpel.
Mazel Tov! Now you can tell us what you really think, right?
Congratulations to Assoc Prof Orac!
Unless you used to be a _full_ professor of surgery, big congratulations!
Well done, Orac!
Super. You can relax now.
Congratulations, Professor! May all your students be deserving and may they not take too much time away from your blogging.
Congratulations. Now Senior Faculty. I’m not sure if your colleagues and students know of your blogging, but I hope so. You are now a senior faculty role model and a damn good one, too, even if you leave pesky comments on my blog!).
Call me when you’re a real professor and not some silly “associate”. Until then I can’t trust you as a reliable source of medical knowledge.
Actually, in all seriousness, congrats.
Must have been all that praying.
