5–8 points: First Aid Kit
You were paying attention in elementary school while the rest of us were on Ritalin. You're perfect for the Faculty of Nursing and should begin your career by repairing good ol' Ralph's liver. There's a lot of work to be done there…
9–16 points: Run Down Ambulance
You may know what you're doing, but face it, you're not licensed. Save the beer for afterwards when you'll need to calm your nerves. In the meantime, keep up the basement walk-in clinic. It'll look good on your med school applications.
17–20 points: HMO
You might know what's wrong, but damned if you'll do anything about it-except charge for another round of beers in hopes that the problem fixes itself. They didn't nickname you Grave for nothing!
