I have a full weekend of clinical exams ahead of me and I have spent the better part of this week preparing for it. It was about time I started to feel the pre-show jitters. A couple of dry runs through some scenarios today left me unsure if I would be up to the task. Tomorrow, we will see.
Being able to create a great Curriculum Vitae (CV) is an important long-term skill to have. Latin for “course of life,” it is a document that serves to represent you ahead of any formal face-to-face interaction, to tell the story of who you are and what skills and experiences you bring. Thus, making a great first impression on paper is very important.
When you begin to second guess your crucial documentation during your application process. When you misread the submission guidelines about what needs to be included. When you make the mistake of speaking to a classmate about his CaRMS application.
It. Changes. Everything.
Go forth and heal.
