看这个版也有几年了,一直觉得这个版挺和谐,有很多有用的帖子。我一般不大记得住
ID, 能记住的有老刀,acne, teabao, Eric, 还有一个前版主(个人偶像:此人在IT
浪潮时下海做了码工,考板热时成功考板match, 不记得ID了,只记得他的头像是他女
儿,极cute)。不过最近有点乱,有英语语法癖 (个人很反感,尽量跳过,跳不过就
只好当吃苍蝇了),有26岁问自己是不是太老的(use you common sense, please),
这不又有99er考经是不是炫耀贴。平心而论,有些是有一些炫耀的意味在里面。不过呢
,一是有可能不经意的,二是不影响交流。现在可好,有人抱怨一下,有人砸,乱了套
了。现在我带头发一下我的非99er考经和不成功的match经历。

个人情况:male, 老CMG, (15+), Ph.D无绿卡。

Step1: 06年3月底ebay拍到Kaplan notes (2004)。4月,女儿出生,当了一个月幸福的
爸爸。6月正式开始复习,非full time 因为还要做实验,6-8小时/天。Kaplan notes,
Kaplan题库下载版(败笔),first aid。 10月中考试,成绩90。经验:Kaplan
notes+first aid+Kaplan 题库应该足够。 教训:要服老(应该给自己多一个月时间)
,不要省钱(应该买题库,我的下载版是那种截屏的,不好)。最后一个月强度没上去
(我请了一个月假,但first aid没有吃透)。

Step1之后,觉得有必要补补实验,看看能不能毕业。07年3月,发现动物实验结果阴性
。无法毕业。4月ebay进kaplan notes (2007), 每天能有6-8小时看书。预定9月初考,
提前2个月买的usmleworld。前一个月请假全天复习。成绩95。经验:kaplan notes +
usmleworld 足够。教训:我挺满意这个成绩,我想我恐怕考不到99—即使再给我一个
月的时间复习。

Step2后放松了两个月,结果CS只有08年4月了。看了板上考经,觉得3个月足够了。
First aid+usmleworld, 自己练。成绩:fail (speaking English)。教训:也许有人
一起练练会好一些?09年4月再考CS, pass. 经验:First aid+usmleworld足够。考试
时不要说得太快。 PN:first aid 上的例子太长了,我觉得按USMLE官网上的格式就行。
这期间跟老板谈毕业,但一拖再拖,期间甚至想拿master毕业(我念了7年了,我容易
么我)。

毕业后做了3各月externship。6月, ECFMG certificate。9月申请。4LORs都是美国医
院的医生写的。IM program 100+。被拒无数。在朋友帮助下拿到一面试。自我感觉和
PD谈的挺好,现在还记得我问“What do you look for in a candidate”,回答:“
成绩:你的成绩挺好;口语:不错;LoR: 你的LoR很好。身份:最好是公民或绿卡。
10月,pass step3:85. 经验:usmleworld。 他家的CCS很好,我觉得和考试时候的界
面很一致。CRUSH step3 也可看看。我复习了3个月。

10年3月,no match. 又做了两个月externship. 现在在申请。

感想:
1. 要考早考,不要像我一样起个大早,赶个晚集。
2. 一定要有家庭支持,我非常感谢我家LD对我考板的支持。
3. 对成绩一般的老CMG来说,绿卡>成绩
太困了,就写到这吧。最后给自己加油,祝自己好运,也祝大家好运。

examine your heart and chest"
2. Help him in any movement, make his position comfortable for him, ask
his permit always, and ask about his comfort while u r examining. Elevate
the bed and extend the leg or the bed if u need him to sleep. Always drape
him and never expose unwanted areas, just uncover where you are examining...
3. Every time you want to examine something say that and take permit: as
:" now, I would like to examine your leg reflexes, is it okay with you Mam/
Sir" thank you
4. Never repeat your examination, once and only once, be gentle...
5. Warm your hand before touch body, (may scrub your stethoscope with
alcohol swap if u have time.)
6. After completion of ur examination, correct SP position, thanks him
for letting you examining him and then tie his gown again

Closure
7. Summary Hx: Mr.xxx, thank you for letting me examine you. Now I would
like to sit down with you and give you my impression. Based on what you told
me and your physical exam, there are several (certain) diagnostic
possibilities like 1._____, 2. ________ or 3. _______ and others . But to be
more certain, let us order a few tests - like blood tests, chest x-ray, and
EKG. After we get the results, (we can reach a definite diagnosis and) we
will meet again and then discuss further management.
8. While concluding, keep this 4-stage pattern in mind to be complete
and to be courteous:
a. First, Counsel !!! For example - for a case of diabetes, it is good to
say a few words on foot care! If the patient smokes or drinks alcohol - say
"are you aware of the harmful effects of smoking / alcohol? Have you ever
considered quitting - if you wish to, we have a good support team that is
willing to help you quit the habit" that is it – don’t get personal about
it.
b. Then say "Have you understood everything we have discussed today?"
c. Then "Are there any special concerns you have?"

d. Finally "Thank you very much Mr. Smith. I shall leave my contact
information with my nurse - feel free to contact me anytime if you have any
questions." Smile and shake, Say: “take care yourself, bye.” (In case Time
falls short... If you have to leave, don’t make it abrupt and embarrassing
. Rather it is good to pretend looking at your beeper and say "Oh! Mr. Smith
, We have an emergency and I have to leave - I will see you as soon as I get
free" and leave with a smile.)

【 在 Mcdoudou (laowu) 的大作中提到: 】
: No I did not do any full time job when I was an extern. After all, that
was
: 60 hours per week. I used my OPT. My understanding of the current rule is:
: you can start your OPT 2 months after the graduation date. You can do
: nothing in the first 3 months of your OPT, after that you have to find at
: least a volunteer full time job. The OB or externship is equivalent to a
: volunteer job in my opinion.
: You
: step1

I cant believe this kind of idiot exists in this world. Two words to describe this piece of human trash: shameless and stupid. USMedEdu, aka, MadDog, put the following thread in his blog and bolded it in the front page. Yet, clearly, the answers he endorsed are the worst answers. The answer I provided got a nod from an English forum. Does he understand the concept of shame or logic? Not only he speaks/writes shitty English, he cant think straight either. And now he wants to drag everyone down with him. PITY! What kind of dumb ass slaps his own face in public? What a joke!
无极: 住院医生面试碰到的尴尬事( 力刀评注推荐及麦地网友讨论)

Doc has successfully sabotaged a good learning club. At the peak, the pre_resident_english_corner had over 95 members and hundreds of posts. Congratulations! I will jot down a few expressions and new words here and there for myself mostly. Sorry friends. I let you down. You guys are the only losers as the bystanders caught in the cross-fire between the two warring parties. Ironically, both of the two people at war came out as the only two 'winners'. Doc can claim his star power. I can focus on my study.

Clearly, this USMedEd cant think straight anymore at his age. To give his credit where credit is due, he is still good at copying/pasting of the posts written by others. Follow his rubbish advice at your peril. We can write a laundry list of his shitty advice. This is a guy who cant keep his job for long. I am still wondering why he had to side with the losing party in a political struggle at work as he put it in one of his posts. Most people would not get involved. Only confrontational and aggressive douche bags would go for it. They can be burned again and again and are still clueless as it is just bad luck and not their faults whatsoever.

It is not just me saying this. Read this:
[snowfox01 于 2010-11-02 17:25:32 提到] [FROM: 134.74.]
Dr.Newbie:Please be nice to this old man。
难道你没看见你把他生命中唯一的支柱----收集各种贴子,然后大言不惭的copy&post 到自己的网页。给打碎了。同时,他在麦地的“一手遮天” 用那二十年前的狗屁经验来误导新人,也让你给揭穿了。我能理解他的恼羞成怒。他也没几天了,就让他乐呵乐呵吧。

There is no doubt that my English is better than anyone else including Eric and that lumcsomething. I was actually touched by the applications to my club every day during this short time. While I am still trying to figuring out the best way to get people energized and the best way to help, it went kaboom. It is such a pity. Just imagine how much more I can help once I get into residency and finish it.

I am sorry it has gone this far. This dokknife has been attacking me relentlessly on anything I write for no good reason. I have to stand up for myself. He said it himself: He does not care whether I am right or wrong. So he makes it personal. Now, he got it. It is personal between him and me.

Feel free to say hello to me at your leisure. I dont have time to play with this piece of human trash and a sadist who excels in copying/pasting and who cant keep his jobs for long. Let him have his schadenfreude from how the ex-boss who canned him got divorced. Let him brag how successful he is in dismantling a learning place.

Lets watch which comes first: I get into residency or he got fired.

并爱好给人改错的蠢人的发言更充分地反映出其愚蠢和无知,她的所谓良好英语在她的愚蠢脑袋支配下成了砸她自己脚的石头。此人在麦地已经贩卖了无数的垃圾和错误得东西。我实在无法忍受这种蠢人无休无止地误导CMG.

You all think this is acceptable and a good presentation of character? What I said back is half what he has said to me. Every time I make an apology to him, I got spit-at-your-face response in return.

It is a pity to see a good club falling apart. At least I have the decency not to use my club as a venting joint. I am sorry that you are put between a rock and a hard place. I will understand if you have to quit the club. You are always welcome to use a majia and check us out. This club is not intended as a base for isolation or a launch pad for personal attacks. It is a place purely devoted to English skills. It is a really a shame that Doc would pull people out of a club just to make people take sides. I dont see how he sabotages an educational club would help his cause. Yes, he has succeeded in pulling 20 people out of my English club and he can claim it is a win-lose-lose situation for himself. But ultimately, it is a lose-lose-lose situation.

Do you have any traces of honor and integrity left in your body? What a piece of human trash. How hard is it to admit you were wrong? What a stupid, arrogant, crazy bitch. Your bark is worse than your bite. Pathetic loser. You promote a 'clean' medi. Yet, you started a club for the sole purpose of shitting in it.You are a disgrace to the human race.

Read this and you know how it started and what I said is exactly what Doc said to me in English. And he said it a dozen of times to me.

What I said is half of what you have said to me. What are you whining about? Be a man. Fight fair and square. Dont just shit in your own compound. You thought you will get sympathy from your followers? What you get is despise from your sympathizers.

Clearly you have no comprehension of English. You have a low EQ. You are clueless here. Why dont you shut your mouth? Be a man and make an apology to me. I have apologized to you a dozen of times. What I get is spit-at-my-face every time in return. Do you have any integrity and honor left in u?

3. All said and done. You truly think you gain the upper hand by locking me outside? You truly think I will lose without getting into your club? Seriously, dont flatter yourself. I have connections to match into a good University program already. I personally know a couple of Chinese PDs and American PDs. Give me a break already.
