I feel as though a course like Clinical Correlations is attune to my style of learning– the time and effort I’ve put into my studies are finally bearing the fruit of knowledge! I’m proficient in using proper sources of information, focused on relevant information and I can present my topic in an organized, logical fashion. My strongest virtue has always been my analytical skills–which I have finally been able to use to diagnose and treat our “patients”. Though I do contribute a lot to the conversation, I feel that I still interrupt others in my group when I become excited about a topic so I must work on reflective listening (an invaluable tool to any clinician). For the next round, I would like to sharpen these skills!
