A follow up: After we mentioned earlier this month that a group of jellyfish is called a "smack," Stanley from the VA offered a list of collective nouns from the medical profession (with tongue firmly planted in cheek):

An acher of bacteriologists
A murmur of cardiologists
A stain of cytotechnologists
A rash of dermatologists
A speck of forensic pathologists
A vessel of heart surgeons
A clot of hematologists
A nursery of obstetricians
A dose of pharmacists
A pile of proctologists
A stream of urologists
