Another One Bites the Dust

Well, I'm all done with my eighth month of 3rd year; my sixth rotation. Holy Awesome Awesomeness!
How was the exam? Flippin' hard. It was a written exam and they really pulled some tough ones on us. Ugh. But now I get a small vacation! Joy!
So. Medicine. It is tough. I am glad I had this outpatient medicine rotation before my inpatient medicine rotation; hopefully it will give me a boost and make me somewhat less spastic and retarded. I don't know. I'm not holding my breath. I did get to see some really interesting patients, and I love coming up with differentials. So in that sense, I actually kind of enjoyed it.
I have neurology next, and just spoke to a friend who told me that the national mean on the neuro shelf test has been around 35%. My feelings on this: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I may have to spend some of my rotation reviewing neuroanatomy, as I remember only two things about neuroanatomy: Jack and shit. And Jack left town.
NOT looking forward to it.
I guess it will be good to learn this stuff... maybe.
Anyway, I am going to go ahead and close off this basically pointless post. I may try to gather some of my thoughts and get some meaningful posts in over these couple of weeks. Later suckers! I hope you have something good going on, and hang in there!

You're ahead of ME, because I just remember shit about neuroanatomy. I'm hoping I'll be able to review a little of it during Psychiatry which I have next, but we'll see.

Congratulations on being done with month #8!

I was studying headache and dizziness for the family med exam (and because fam med in general gives me headaches and dizziness) and there was some crap about some vertebrobasilar-something-something tracts and I was all "huh? is that in the brain somewhere?" neuro is gonna be rough for me too...
but in the meantime - SPRING BREAK 2008 TAKE YOUR SHIRT OFF WOO HOO!! :)
