Finishing Internal Exam Part Two

I thought the exam overall went pretty well. Having only had two oral exams though, this one included, I still find the practice to be very awkward and disjointed.

For example, the examiner goes by a script and does not move to the next section until I have finished my answer and will tell me information afterwards that I may not have requested because it is in the script. Though I had a list of investigations I wanted to have done, the timing of some of them was inappropriate for that particular moment and I was reserving them for - in my mind - a later point in the case as it unfolded. It was a terrible mistake and easy points were lost.

Having said that, I feel that I eventually did come to the right diagnoses for the cases I had, though my process getting there could definitely have been slicker and more thorough.

Lesson learned.

    Reason #4 (?) not to go to medical school… oral exams. Although pharmacy isn’t seeming that much more appealing anymore....
