1. Call your residency program and ask for chance of observing on rounds
before residency starts.
2. Or observe in a local hospital.
3. Make friends with current or graduated residents and fellows. Listen to
4. Read something everyday and develop a habit of reading.
5. Take step3 before June.
6. Attend grand rounds to improve your English.
7. Read a case book in your specialty.
8. Excercise daily.
9. Spend some time with your significant other
10.Learn to deal with anger: avoid black and white thinking (e.g., never, always, etc.), uses effective communication skills to share feelings and needs, checks for possible compromises, and assesses what is at stake by choosing to stay angry versus dealing with the anger.
I feel that while taking step1 and 2, it was easy to become too focused on
knowledge base. Smart test-takers might face challenges in making patients
and colleagues happy.
Doctors are smart people. Smart people are often self-centered by nature.
Being a good doctor means controlling our egos. We all are students of medicine.
Anyone can teach us something new. Anyone in the hospital (and in this society) deserves respect: janitor, front desk, medical student,and nurses.
If you do not pay attention to interpersonal relationship, if you simply
speak your mind without paying attention to others' feelings, and if you do
not know how to bring out the pride and self-respect in people around you,
you will fail.
On the other hand,I sincerely ask Diarrhea to give us some advice on how to
protect yourself as an intern and also how to lead PGY1 as a PGY2.
I give an example:
What if your PGY2 is a very smart girl and good at manipulating people?
What if she tells you to do things that your program does not favor, like she says you should do your work first and skip the required noon conference?
What if she pretends to be vulnerable to gain sympathy of attendings?
What if everyone loves her, but you know she is not that great?

i am not diarrhea, but i think this is an interesting discussion.please
allow me take the liberty answering before diarrhea comes...
: What if your PGY2 is a very smart girl and good at manipulating people?
---do what you suppose to do and be extra careful protecting yourself,eg,
document you discussed this case with her.
but: don't jump to assumption that you have fight just because you heard
she is manipulative, don't get biased from gossips.
also don't ever ever spreading gossips.
: What if she tells you to do things that your program does not favor, like
she says you should do your work first and skip the required noon conference?
----if you know you are not efficient and might not get work done esp in the
post call day, you might need to skip the conference, that's the reality,
pt care comes first. but if you can assure your resident you will be
efficient enough, she cannot make you skip anything. so, this one, totally
depends on how good you are.
: What if she pretends to be vulnerable to gain sympathy of attendings?
-----that's nothing to do with you. stay out of those drama as an intern.
: What if everyone loves her, but you know she is not that great?
-----still, none of your business. why you have to prove she is not that
great? what you will gain from this?
the worst thing an intern can do is
1. trying to be the center of a drama,
2. attention seeking from attendings,
3. thunder stealing from your senior residents.
4 taking credit from things you didn't do.
5. flirting with other co-workers.
esp when female intern working with female resident, this sometimes can be
low key, low key, work hard, talk carefully.祸从口出，切记切记。
