  1. Are decisions made by them or made by team they work with? How does it work?
  2. Do u let preceptor know at beginning of rotation that u may ask for a ref letter? Or do u do it after they give u feedback?
  3. I emailed my staff, and she said that she is including them as a courtesy and I can decide if I want them to be on my paper or not? I don’t want to be mean or anything but they actually did not do anything
  4. What r signs that u r doing well? And what r signs you are not doing well?
  5. I asked a preceptor for Strong ref letter and she agreed! Now i also worked with her on a project where I am first author on paper and I noticed that she added another student that did not do any work on my manuscript so I asked her politely saying that I would like to give like to give credit where it’s due can u tell me how did that student contribute.. and I said I also said I apologize if I missed something About that students contribution.... Is it a problem that I said that? Would That affect my ref letter?
  6. How to deal with criticism on ur rotations? I try to do my best when writing discharge summaries and spend so much time on them but then when a staff reads they always make changes... I spend so much time on my work, but my staff always tells me about things that I can improve or change... I am not sure how to improve!!
  7. A lot of residents I meet in my rotations barely have anytime time to do anything outside of medicine. Some are even unhappy with their choice.. which residency medicine allows for work life balance
  8. After talking to few of my friends in the class ahead of me, I realized that several individuals did not match to their top choice specialty ( in mid competitive specialties) despite having outstanding ECs and some research... what factors play a role into matching to ur first choice specialty? Is it ur knowledge level during electives? How to improve your chances of matching to ur top choice discipline?
