I am just curious amongst the soon to be M.D.s and those who have gone through their internship. Is it just me or does it seem like when it comes to your medical knowledge that your brain has become fried over this last year. I am wondering, for those who have finished their internship year, if they were able to easily get back into the swing of things. Im kinda scared because I know I knew a lot of stuff by the end of my third year but know it is a different story. Everything just sort of sounds familiar now. Please ensure me that it all comes back.

Thanx

this is a very, very common phenomenon. You will find that ALL of your collegues, save that one or two (that you won't get along with anyway, perhaps) will be in the same boat. As an intern, you will feel pretty stupid for at least the first six months, regardless. Now, after eight months, I feel stupid, but not as stupid as before.

Stupid is as stupid does.

See, I don't even know what that means!

Well said. Part of me thinks I would have been a better intern as a third year medical student, at least at first. No worries. Have fun. The start of your internship is rapidly approaching; and mine is rapidly ending!!!:D
