jusjam123 Posted August 22, 2022 Share Posted August 22, 2022 8th clinical rotation. Internal medicine. I have only ever felt more dumb at one other point in my life and that was my General Surgery rotation. Everyone in my internal med rotation is super nice, but I don't get how they are able to do this. I see 2 patients on average each day and can barely manage, and during my patient presentations my preceptor has to save me each time. I can't make good plans, I can't think of anything independently, and I am less than a month from graduating. I don't even know how to manage a patient's insulin. All I know how to do well is take a test and I thus I am terrified. I have diagnosed GAD, and slow processing speeds, and it never was an issue until clinicals, and especially the hospitalist rotations. I could study my ass off to compensate for my deficiencies in didactic, but I cant seem to do the same for clinical practice. My heart just feels destroyed because I fought so hard for this, but I am starting to believe that me as a person was not meant for it. I just don't know what to do. Advice, please.
