  1. What is the most commonly used book to study pulmonary medicine for med students?
  2. What percentage of medical students use Youtube to teach themselves a topic? Is it appropriate to use Youtube for medical education? Pros and Cons ?
  3. I have worked so hard to get into medical school, but now that I am in clerckship, I feel that I don't like medicine; nor do I think it is what I anticipated it to be. I am in a 3 year program and I am currently in my 3rd month of clerkship rotations. I'm currently doing MTU, and I continuously feel incompetent. In addition, I don't feel medicine has as much patient interactions as I imagined it would have. I spend at least x5 times more time documenting/doing discharge plans than speaking/interaction with pts. I'm also doing my MTU rotation with a preceptor who makes me stay past 26 hour call shift to give me feedback on spelling mistakes or minor mistakes that I wrote on my admission note at 3 AM ... I just don't feel that I like medicine... I initially thought that I was interested in internal medicine, but after going through this rotation, I am quite turned off... I am not sure what should I do in medicine....
  4. What are common presentations to study for in peds emergency? How to best prepare for emergency medicine electives, and peds emerg specifically?
  5. Does that mean you are not doing well? Or u r not useful?
  6. Which residency other the FM has the lowest average work hours per week?
  7. especially if u do research with them, and have done electives with them.. etc.. or is that not appropriate?
  8. Our school assesses our knowledge through MCQ exams.. I usually do well on those exams because I can recognize the correct answer.. but I don't feel like I truly know the concepts well... and in few months, I usually forget all the details of what I learned.. sometimes, I even question if I learned this material because I can't recall learning it!! Yet, I am passing my exams and doing well... I feel that MCQ exams are not a good way of assessing students; and it's not a good way to help students who are struggling with content! I was wondering what is better way to actually examine med students?
  9. I am finding that i progress through my training, I am becoming less empathetic! How do I maintain my empathy when i see patients?
  10. Are you at US school? Perhaps it is different in Canadian schools! In Canadian schools, it is probably less than 3 students a year fail a clerkship block! Maybe Canadian clerkship block exams are easier!
  11. When talking to med students, I have been told it is only 1 or 2 students that fail a clerkship block.. it may be school dependant though!
  12. How common is it to fail blocks in clerkship? I thought it is not very common!
