Just got raped on my oral exam by the toughest attending in surgery. I hear he’s a bit unreasonably tough … I just hope I did enough to pass grrrr.

So I let out my woes with a brownie and Oreos ice cream.

  1. Good luck with your exam!

    Brownies and ice cream (especially with Oreos!) can work some serious magic. I don’t know what I would do without them.

      hehe, you will find out in a few months my friend … i’m sure HB has taken some of his own already. It’s essentially the equivalent of a 30 min long (at least for us) pimp fest where you are given topics at the start of the rotation and by the end, you should know all the details about every single one so that one the attending picks a topic, you should be ready to answer any questions he has. The one I had for internal medicine wasn’t bad but I got the really tough attending on surgery for my oral so it was actually really hard as I had no idea what he wanted me to say (most of the time attendings will guide you to the answer they want you to say).
