Abstract: As landmark research in the social sciences has revealed, medical students must frequently contend with uncertainty as they develop new skills and knowledge as future physicians. Drawing on 12 months of ethnographic research in a Midwestern US allopathic medical school, this paper aims to nuance the concept of “uncertainty.” It demonstrates that the boundary between ‘knowing’ and ‘not knowing’ is fluid when medical students learn to integrate multiple forms of knowledge to understand complex biomedical concepts. Throughout the study reported on here, when medical students lacked one type of information about a topic, they frequently drew upon other forms of knowledge to “fill in the gap,” thereby reconciling what they felt certain of with their initial uncertainty. This paper will present key examples from anthropological observations and interviews to illustrate the impact of students’ micro-level encounters with uncertainty on the broader epistemology of clinical learning and practice. It will suggest that physicians-in-training do not simply acclimate to ‘not knowing,’ but that early encounters with uncertainty may prompt medical students to creatively synthesize information and develop active responses to uncertain situations. The paper will engage with science and technology studies, and the theme of Sensibilities, by highlighting how biomedical practitioners learn to effectively “grasp” new scientific knowledge and to “respond” when they seem to lack key skills or information.

Abstract: Apatow’s The 40 Year Old Virgin offers a critique of definitions of manhood (masculinity) and the self-understanding of heterosexual men (manliness) by treating virginity as similar to homosexuality. Andy Stitzer, the hero and the film’s middle-aged virgin attempts to pass as experienced among his friends. His failure at passage triggers the friends to ask if Andy is gay, something acceptable to them. Andy’s confesses his virginity, which his friends view as unacceptable. However defining man as not-virgin becomes increasingly absurd as we see Andy’s friends engage in unmanly behavior, like infidelity, pining, and drug addiction. The irresponsibility of men, parading as manliness, conceals and perpetuates their deep-seated loneliness. The women of Virgin are equally irresponsible, obsessed with sex, and lonely. Andy’s love interest, Trish, worries about why Andy will not sleep with her while she mishandles her teenage daughter wants to start having sex. What begins as a critique of masculinity becomes a critique of the central role sex plays in the lives of all adults. The two characters contradicting sex’s central role are Mooj, the family man, whose imperfect advice foreshadows the moral delivered by the character called “Prostitute,” a drag queen, whose experience in passing and expertise in sex gives provides insight to help Andy. Apatow’s Virgin, therefore, emphasizes the similar condition among gender roles as we receive them and impose them on ourselves, while hoping to replace sex with loving social responsibility as the defining feature of adulthood for all genders.
