Funny Medical Team Names

Doctors, nurses, lab techs, x-ray techs, paramedics, and all the other dedicated people who work in the medical field, frequently find themselves in stressful situations. This happens more to first responders and those who work in hospitals than those in private offices and in nursing homes. But it can happen anywhere, any time. When the pressure is the worst in the Emergency Department or in the field, people naturally try to deflect stress with humor. Medical humor can often be dark. A lighter touch might be what your medical team needs. Great medical teams need funny medical team names.

Naming your team binds you together and lifts morale. If your group has had a bad few days, it’s time to brighten your spirits. Come up with a humorous team name. Make sure that it’s funny, not demeaning to any of your members. And the name should not be provocative. Sexy double entendres are not appropriate in this setting.
