You know, I don’t actually get that many messages, so when I do, like most tumblr bloggers… It’s kind of nice! And I click right away to see what a reader has said…And then it’s such a downer to read something like this. =(
We give and receive a lot of feedback and criticism in medical school. My project this summer is analyzing feedback and comments from patients! It’s really important to hear from other people. I welcome all feedback and especially value comments that are specific. Please let me know what you like and don’t like.
Also, I guess I haven’t introduced myself to new followers! Here are some facts about my life:
Guess this post is also rather long…I don’t need to “get a life”…I need to get more sleep!
P.S. Let’s all try to not let negative comments get to us. Use them as an opportunity to get better at something…i.e. ignoring bs and focusing your energy on something better. If it’s actually a useful comment, try and understand where that statement is coming from and fix your practice.
Oh no, not at all! I’m a little nervous, spazzy/overly eager, not sure if I’m preparing enough during this summer, and bummed/stressed about how expensive housing will be around my school…Part of the reason I’m not scared is because I befriended a lot of medical students during college, and one of my close friends is a 3rd year (albeit at a different school). I can really ask him anything that I’m curious about! I guess I’m still really happy that I got in, so maybe I’m still in a honeymoon phase haha. I’m so excited to finally start formally learning medicine and everything I’ve been WAITING to study.
Don’t be scared! Find someone you trust so you can just vent to, or email a 2nd year the questions you have. Hope you’re having a great summer! We’ll be FINE. Yay Class of 2016!
