Adventures in medicine from a mother and resident.

We finished our first OSCE-style exams today. I wasn't even out of the room (sometimes even as the words were leaving my mouth) before I was mentally kicking myself in the rear for my own stupidity. Needless to say I wasn't very happy with my performance. I think I at least came off as a kind, caring, reasonable human being, if entirely clueless. I blame the endless training to perform well on multiple choice tests. If you give me the option of the right answer I can almost always pick it. I just can't pull it out of the nether reaches of my stress-addled brain when it is actually important.
