I was talking to a fourth year medical student today. We were talking about third-year clerkships. He made an interesting statement that I don't quite buy. He said that what distinguishes the honors students from their Joe Average classmates is in the presentations and not in the fund of knowledge. He said it's not what you know, it's how you come across in presentations that determines whether you honor or not. I don't think this is quite right. I thought the honors students was characterized with extraordinary breadth of knowledge besides the usual requisites of being a good character, good team player, etc. Comments?
