Transition to clerkship


For medical students the transition to clerkship can be a “shock of practice”. They usually have to get around in a field very strange to them, due to the stress they almost forget everything they have learned the previous 3-4 years. Thanks to Annemarie Cunningham I came across a third year med students blog.

She wrote an interesting post about: Be nice, be humble, be interested: advice received for clerkship. She has compiled some of the wonderful advice that she has received in a list. She also wrote a post about the transition, worthwhile your time to read.

This post will highlight a few of my trepidations; in a follow up post I will share some of the advice for clerkship that I have received from a variety of sources. If you have anything you think I should include please pass it along
