Im at this stage where I feel that all hope is lost. I’m on my second hour of my first day of Pharmacology review, and I already have this feeling of wanting to give up. Reading through my flashcards, handouts, PEARLS handout, there were many “WHAT IFS” that crossed my mind.
One of which is “What if I just take the board exam next year?”
I was the type of medical student who was always late for school, slept during/ skipped some of the lectures, and would only study half or even less the prescribed topics for the exams. I was a bit confident during medschool days, bc despite me being lax and everything, I still managed to pass.
But now, after 3 years of lectures, 1 year of clerkship, and 1 year of internship, I’m sitting here in front of my notes thinking, “I shouldve studied.” I’m now cramming a year’s worth of learning into 2 days. And 3 years worth in 15 days. Medicine is difficult as it is, but it’s even more RIDICULOUSLY difficult cramming everything.
I just had to let this one out.
