An update long overdue

I don't even want to check the last time I updated–it's been so long.

My year of intensive studying is over, I passed the national exam for all the sixth year med students (and had to retake one of the tests twice), was ranked better than what I expected (and better than what I had done during the year) which allowed me to choose what specialty I'd do. After a lot of hesitation, I chose family medicine.

I've officially been an intern for a month now. I don't know how much I've progressed since, but I still feel like I know nothing. I'm working in the ER for six months, and luckily everyone there, from the doctors to the nurses and cleaning ladies are really nice. It's a good thing too because the ER is not a place I want to work at later on, but the internship is mandatory.

How has everyone else been?

Thanks!

I think the situation is worse in the States than where I live (in France, the exam I took makes sure that 50% of the student doctors become family doctors), but it still is really important for people to have a physician close by that knows them. Besides, I think it's really interesting!
