I think he was probably joking.

That's just as bad as my cousins ex-boyfriend thinking that Virginia was another country...smh, and now this guy? AND he wants to be a doctor? This country needs some help for its future.

Well to be fair, we do have 50 states...and state is the general word to denote a country by those outside of the US...but I think this kid is geographically challenged.

A lot of the med school students I know are terrifyingly immature with bad ethical practices. I wouldn't trust them the slightest when they graduate.

Just resd older fml that said, Today, I heard two of my students having a conversation. One asked what state Arizona was in, and the other replied Canada. I teach sixth grade social studies and they weren't joking. FML

Yea but how would you feel if someone who potentially has your life in their hands can't even tell if they have been outside their own country?

@21 if he can't manage the focus to memorize simple geography, just think how great he'll be at memorizing biological geography. I'd hate to go in to have my appendix removed and leave the hospital with my appendix intact, but minus a kidney.

Everyone is a genius. But if u judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.. One doesnt need to know where Arizona is to become a doctor. And.. Unless your name is Google, stop acting like you know everything. =)

No I think hes expressing his confusion as to how the child could even think that he left USA, I dont think he believes Arizona to be a separate nation. "He" being the commenter

In reply to #3 and #11 I don't live in NA or ever visited NA but doesn't the southern part of Arizona border another country? Mexico to be precise - but I have not been taught any of this.

How does common sense help you know geography? Geography is just about memorizing a bunch of information that for many people would be useless.

Ever consider he was messing around?

I am hopeless at Geography, but I know/recognise the names of most US states, and I live in the UK (I don't know where most of the UK counties are precisely but we tend to talk about places being "near Carlisle" or "a few miles south of Liverpool" rather than "in Cumbria/Lancashire" like Americans would do with states). This is beyond hopeless.

We're talking about a guy who cannot tell what constitutes the country he lives in and what constitutes countries he does not live in. Or a guy who is the master of deadpan comedy.

Presumably the good doctor would have to know how to get to the hospita and so on. Also, this is general knowledge. Kinda makes one look like a dumbarse. Of course, he could be one of those guys who is thick at everything except one special talent...
