Our team's interns were given an assignment yesterday by the team's attending (I am a 3rd-year med student). They were told to present data and their own analysis of that data of huge drug trials like ALLHAT and ACCOMPLISH in front of the entire team. In the process, one of the interns mistakenly understood the implications of a trial and was subsequently torn apart by the attending. Evidently the entire purpose of the assignment was to give the interns the tools necessary to evaluate drug trials so that they could prescribe medication they felt was safe according their analysis of the trials. Have any of you guys have experienced something similar to this? Is this something that I should expect as an intern, not that it's a terribly bad/hard thing to keep up on? For the record, this is a community residency program.
