Cranquis: So how long is ‘a while’? Weeks? Months? Years?

50-something male patient: Yes.

Cranquis: Aha. Does the knee pain travel anywhere?

Patient: Sometimes my hip. Or my back. Or my shoulder.

Cranquis: Aha. So you’ve never had any injuries to your right leg, from hip to foot?

75 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT STEP 1 

ladykaymd:

In the continuing series of Katharine’s long lists about medical school I’ve written you this list of 75 things you should know about step 1! It includes things to know about studying, about staying sane, AND about test day! 

This is the first in a series I’ll be writing as a comprehensive guide to the USMLE including a more detailed post about test day, etc! 

This list includes things like 

  • Don’t have pockets! 
  • Step psychosis is real! Beware! 
  • Let it go! You cannot learn everything!
  • Don’t delay your date. 
  • Pathoma—do it. 
  • Don’t panic. 
  • Bring caffeine. Bring back up caffeine.

Bahaha

Woo another block exam down!

Now to mentally rest up for my half marathon this weekend!!!
