Now, this may seem silly to all of you reading this, but this was a huge moment for me. After I took the test on the GI unit I was convinced that I did not know enough to get by just because I did not feel confident enough. But right after the exam and talking to my boyfriend about this patient case, I realize that I do know far more than I ever thought I could. I do not by any means know all that I need to know yet (and probably never will) but I feel that most of what I have learned carries with me more than I realize.
Moments like this make me extremely excited for rotations where I can actually interact with patients and use the knowledge that I spent so long studying.
