So for Family Medicine, I expected to be supervised by a specialist family physician. Instead, we were one of the few groups working with a general practitioner. And from now on, you can give me a GP like him any day.
This doctor was so eager to teach. When I told him I had never done a lumbar puncture, he said, “That’s okay, I’ll walk you through it.” He definitely chucked me into the deep end very often, but he made sure that I managed to swim.
We made stupid mistakes often, and answered his questions incorrectly, and he smiled and corrected us.
When we did something without being asked, he praised us.
It was amazing. And did we walk all over him, like doctors appear to think will happen if they show a modicum of humanity?
The best part ever?
