It is probably a bit early in my third year experience to be asking a question like this. However, this particular situation irked me a bit, so I thought I would ask to see if others have had similar experiences. I recently received my evals for my first rotation; the final grade is an average of all of the individual evals I received for the month. One particular eval from a physician I worked with for 2 whole days seemed pretty odd to me. I was given average scores in all eval areas except for a max score in work ethic/team-based effort and a MINIMUM score in medical knowledge (250s step 1/800s comlex - I realize this has nothing to do with clinical knowledge). Additionally, they put a rather passive-aggressive comment on the eval which was basically a nice way of saying "know your place". To my knowledge, my rapport with this physician was very good and they always thanked me for my hard work and eagerness after the two shifts I spent with them. They pushed me mentally and I definitely did not know every pimp question that came my why, but I would say that I was fairly knowledgeable about 50% of them. Many of the questions were "read my mind", about things a 3rd year wouldn't know on their first rotation (ex: advanced protocol stuff), or flat out wrong (I definitely did not correct them or even hint at it). Any time I learned something from the physician I always remembered it and applied it the next time I saw the same situation, and they even commented on my aptness to remember their teachings. The physician even stated that they would be more than happy to fill out an eval for me at the end of the month. This physician worked with many students over the month, but there was always only 1 student per shift, so I don't really have a peer basis to go off of. I am a very self-critical person and try to gain knowledge from every situation. But I was a little blind-sided by the way the eval from this physician played out. The rest of the evals from the month were nothing special and pretty average positive comments. I don't know whether I should just shut up and move on because I ended up receiving a HP average or if there is something I am missing from the situation that would help me grow to be a better student. I am 2 weeks into my next rotation and the physician I am working with is doing nothing but giving me positive feedback. I have been given no inclination that I do not seem humble, lack understanding of the medical hierarchy, come off too confident, or that I am "difficult to teach". Thanks for your time.
