I may understand this guy is under great great pressure and stress, I just
don't agree with his way of getting out of it. I have finished my first week
of internship, it's extremely hard. I thought I have prepared for that, but
difficulties from every field exceeded my expectaiton. Language, ajusting
to a whole new system are among toughest challenges. I once thought my oral
English is good, then on the first day, my confidence was totally blown away
. and it's so embarrasing you don't know a term which is common sense to
AMGs. Medical knowledge in usmles are actually the last thing we need to
I survived my first week in medicine,and now I have clearer view of what
lies ahead of me. Confidence is building up, although little by little.I
still don't like the time when my pager beeps, but at least it's not that
terrifying anymore to answer a page.It's more convincing to me that this is
not only something I like to do, I want to do, but also something I can do.
And if this is something I can do, all of you can do it. Today, our
attending told the three interns in the group: congratulations , you just
survive your first week of internship, and I think we have an excellent team
internship is something eaqual to stress, for everyone. But it's even harder
for FMGs especially when you don't have previous clinical experience, don't
speak and write English well and in a program consisting mostly of AMGs.
So my suggestions to all chinese usmlers
1. handle stress well, you will have extremely hard time ahead to get
2. practice English vwey well, both written and oral.
3. Do observership very well, it's all about getting a letter. Medical floor
is always better than a PCP's office.
4. Read books about how to survive sub-I and internship
5.most importantly, be confident that you will get through and never let
despair take over you.
