I posted this thread in the pre-allo and got some good feedback, but I wanted to see what current med students have to say. I am starting med school this fall and couldn't be happier - I have looked forward to being a doctor for a long time. Anyway, while I have been shadowing docs in the ER and OR I have gotten dizzy a couple of times and had to leave the room. When this happened in the ER the doc was very sympathetic and after a while I got used to things. Does this sort of thing happen in med school (clinicals, first day of anatomy, etc.)? Do you think that professors and doctors would be understanding if it did? Thanks for any feedback.
