Like I mentioned in my post about the resources I used to study for the Internal Medicine EOR, this rotation actually ended up being my favorite so far. I loved every moment of the rotation, especially my preceptors! I saw amazingly complex patients with multiple co-morbidities, and my preceptors let me manage them almost completely on my own with only a small amount of input from them. It was so far outside of my comfort zone, but such an amazing learning experience.
Since I often hear that this rotation is one of the more challenging rotations, I thought it might be helpful if I shared my top 5 tips for survive Internal Medicine with you guys! The first three tips are actually the tips my preceptor gave me the first week, and I just found them so helpful. The last two are the tips that I figured out on my own and couldn’t have survived without.
