Hi all,

From your experiences, what do you think is the best way to go about asking your supervisors or community physicians for case reports?

When you see a cool case ask them if you can write it up. Then write it up ASAP.

Residents also tend to have a steady stream of these we always say we are going to write up but then get busy and forget. We are always happy when a student wants to bang out a quick paper we can stick our name on too.

What's the turnaround time that they're expecting. I've been dragging my feet with one for a month.

Thanks for the advice! Right now, I am in my preclinical years and still have some time before rotations begin. Is emailing people or just talking to them after meetings considered appropriate?

Either.

If you do get on a project, try and get it done quickly, (ideally) without a lot of hand holding, and certainly complete anything you commit to. Nobody likes a flake.
