Episode 11: Why do I feel so unprepared?

The bad news – you don’t feel prepared. The good news – you’re not alone. I tackled this question from a student:

“Hello! Hoping you’re well. First off, thank you for being the best resource out there- you are amazing! I was wondering if you had any advice on keeping your head up as didactic year tries to drown you? I’m currently in my second semester (started rotations in May) and it’s even harder than the first! Makes me want to find whoever said this semester should be easier and give them a piece of my mind, haha! How do I make this easier? Will clinicals be just as hard? Why do I feel so underprepared?! Thank you again for your guidance. I am truly appreciative.”
