Still waiting for it all to click into place......

After the thrill of finally passing some exams first time, I have moved on to my Senior Rotation in Obs and Gynae. Can't believe I am a final year student.

If any doctors are reading this, I would love your thoughts on something. Before starting out in Medicine, I assumed that in the final year, I would know loads of stuff and be able to manage reasonably well on a ward. Now I am here, I don't feel like I know enough. I know a bit about a lot of stuff, but am in no way the competent student that I thought I would be in my final year. I know I am not the brightest of students, but I look at the cleverer ones around me and see that they also look a little lost.

If there are any doctors reading - when does it all click into place? And do you have any advice for the final year?

Hi - I'm a 1st Year Med Reg now. And when does it all click into place? I'd say around SHO years!

Seriously - it will all come together in the first few weeks on the wards.

Hi I hope this is ok, but your post inspired me to write a post of my own on the subject.

Good luck

*fingers crossed*

If it's any consolation, I'm a final year GEP student and I don't have a bloody clue either!

About Me

My photo
I knew I wanted to study medicine from 5 minutes into my nurse training in 1992. This didn't go down too well with my peers but it has taken me eleven years to get my life in a place where I could apply to medical school, so I have paid my nursing dues! I was lucky enough to get two offers. I have been married for seven years to an ex footballer who is now a PE teacher. We have no plans for babies but I would love more King Charles Spaniels. I start medicine on September 20th 2006 and am absolutely petrified.
