One more week and finals will be over. Tests are stressful, but not as much as when your instructor comes out to your primary care site to evaluate you. That is stressful. They come and sit in the corner of the exam room and say just ignore me. The patients don’t have a problem with it, but the students are a wreck. Did I diagnose it right, did I come up with the appropriate differential diagnosis and did I order the right meds and consults.
I would love to be out in the woods breathing fresh air and walking a Labrador. That is the best way to beat stress. Until then I just need to keep the goal in mind for six more months, then I can get a job and dog.
