This is probably a stupid question...

Do patient interivews get any easier? For the past year I've always been really nervous with any kind of patient interaction. With MS2 starting up in a few weeks, I'm just trying to find out a way lose the 'butterflies' and focus on the patient (whether they be standarized or not!).

Thanks.

Seems like it would get easier with time. Talking to people is a learned behavior I think. With more experience and time, you'll get better at it.

It definetely does. I remembered getting butterflies when I was an MSI and II. After 3rd year (when you do tons of interviews) it becomes much easier. You also learn the appropriate questions to ask with more experience.
