In the halls of hospitals,
Where the sick and injured lie,
Are those who tirelessly work
To help them heal and thrive:

They are the medical residents,
Whose days are long and hard,
And whose patient dedication
ls unwavering and unmarred.

From early morning rounds
To a code just down the hall,
They’re always on the go
To answer every nurse’s call.
With stethoscopes and scrubs
And masks upon their face,
Diagnosing and treating
With expertise and grace.

Their work is never done
But their passion never fades,
For every life they touch
ls a chance to make a change.

So here’s to the medical residents,
Whose hard work is truly inspiring;
May they never lack compassion
And forever be aspiring.
