Today marks the end of week 9, the 1/2 point of the semester. I have just finished perhaps one of the most intense blocks of study I have had yet and now will start something completely new on Monday. The general feeling in the class is one of low grade anxiety. There doesn’t seem to be enough time to consolidate what I have just learned before being hit with new material. I hate to say it but it’s already time to get serious about the exams, even though they are 2 1/2 months away…I don’t remember doing this in undergrad or even for my Masters. I guess it just goes to show that Medical School is a different sort of beast altogether.
