University of Manitoba doctors show Rick Mercer life as a resident

Rick Mercer Report

When Dr. Leslie Anderson sent an email to the Rick Mercer Report months ago, asking if he would come spend a day with residents at the University of Manitoba, she wasn't sure what would happen.

"I sent them an email asking if Rick has ever saved a life or seen a real human colon," said Anderson, the co-president of the Professional Association of Residents and Interns of Manitoba. "I said, 'Does he want to?'" 

Mercer ended up filming a segment of The Mercer Report with Anderson and other resident doctors at the university last week.
