So I decided to be lazy and forgo an icu rotation in the spring of my 4th year to do a month of outpatient medicine instead. I feel bad about this and its actually giving me anxiety, thinking that i'm going to be totally lost and incompetent as an intern since i will not have had icu experience. in all reality, how bad is this? What can I read to compensate? I feel really bad about it but the thought of working surgery hours and weekends and call etc etc in the spring just killed me. I guess its a trade off but I hope I dont pay for the consequences as an intern. Any input or advice?
