Know Your UCSF Doctors: Hey Look, It’s Dr. Pam Ling, the Med Student from MTV’s “The Real World San Francisco” in 1994

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

You’re too young to remember the era before the Internet, but back in the day, MTV was all we had.* So it was a BFD when the MTV came to town to stage a reality show┬áback in 1994.

Pamela Ling was one of the characters. She played a medical student, which wasn’t hard, because, you know, she was a med student at the time.

Anyway, she became a doctor at UCSF and that where she labors some 18 years later.

See?

Oh, and there was Puck, who pretended to be a bike messenger.

Man, some real bike messengers didn’t like him. That’s what I recall.

Ah mem’ries…

*Well, not me. Cable’s for suckers, these days and back in the day. I think my friend would videotape this show and then we’d watch it off of the VHS.
