For those of you who have already completed at least one clinical rotation, what are some tips or advice on being a successful clinician?

- A prior site visit would be helpful, but not necessary. If you plan on doing that, definitely call up your CI and ask for a good time to come for a visit.
- There will be certain things that you will not agree on. Just don't come out like an ass when you are voicing your concerns about a certain topic (e.g. treatment) Stay professional at all times.
- If your shift starts at 8am, be there at 7:45am and get yourself ready for your 8am patient(s)

If I can think of something more, I'll add them on here. Good luck :)
