I'm currently in my clerkship year, 2nd rotation, and on my last day my preceptor told me that I will have to retake my clerkship. It will be replace one of my electives at the end of the year after my core elective, and I'm feeling especially down, but I have accepted the decision. Their reasons were that I had difficulty with presentations, and knowledge content. During my mid-rotation evaluation, I acknowledged that I had difficulty with presentations, and I relied on my notes to make the presentation. I have severe anxiety with making presentations, and having my notes readily available really helped me, my lead preceptor even said I was able to use my notes for the later presentations, which definitely improved my presentations, but now it seems that they are going against their word. I wished that they had told me mid-week, and checked in or given me ways to improve throughout and not thrown it at me all at the end. Regarding my knowledge content, as a student, my job here was to learn, and I feel as if I'm being penalized for asking questions that I did not know to.
Essentially, I just want some advice on how to cope with improving my presentations and anxiety, along with any input on any further steps I should take.
