It feels pretty good to be out of the classroom. However, I am often completely lost on the wards. Whether that is figuring out who does what, what questions to ask patients, how to order lab tests and write prescriptions, the wards are a confusing place at first.
Things are better now that I’ve had a few weeks under my belt. I’ve noticed I am more eager to get up in the morning to learn but it is also quite hard to wake up due to constant fatigue and lack of sleep.
Less than a month in and I already know I have changed. For better or worse, we’ll find out as clerkship continues.
