Hope that things are going well for you. Just letting you know that I am done and am now a medical intern…1 month in. Hectic does not even do the experience justice. But I try to keep my head above the water, learning as I go along and trying not to make major mistakes.
Trust me…medical school did not give me a hint of what I am going through now.
I am thinking now about doing my USMLE’s. Geriatrics is what I want to do and it is not offered here in Jamaica. My questions are these:
- How different is the path doing it through Family Medicine vs. Internal Medicine. Have not made up my mind on which I will follow, and also which is easier to match in, and
- Any advice on starting the Step 1 preps during the internship time.
I know that as a foreign medical grad, I am not as high on the priority listing, but if there are any tidbits that you could pass on to facilitate the process I would be grateful.
Take care and all the best.
