Editing this post for the sake of maturity and propriety.
So, I had my Surgery OSCEs today. They were pretty awful and I am really just hoping for a pass, which I will hopefully improve in the upcoming exams.
This rotation was even worse than the same rotation in third year. I have never been abused by Interns* this much! (Not even in third year, because back then my repertoire of clinical skills was not quite as useful.)
I had a big rant-y post about this, but I’ve decided to edit it and just leave the image to speak for itself.
Probably surgery just brings out the worst in a lot of people – myself included.
I hope I never have an experience like this again. I think SIs and Interns should be able to work well together, in a way that we still learn from them, but still manage to make their load lighter. I hope this was an anomalous experience. And although I will still have to completely two months of surgery during Internship, I hope it is nothing like this.
But now, I will stop. I have a Golden Weekend to enjoy!
*Clarification: Interns = freshly graduated doctors; first or second year post-grad
Student Interns = final year medical students
