:: Feedback Session :: May 22, 2007

Posted by Minci 先生 in Medical School.

-Evil is obvious only in retrospect-


Watched the Finale of Heroes. I am sad for having to say goodbye to my hero, Nathan Petrelli.

I had an appointment today to see the clinical skills director to discuss about the stations I failed in my OSCEs this year. I failed one in this module and one in the previous one. I’m glad I went to see the director, for I get to know what went wrong and what I could have done better to achieve the mark. I believe that these feedback sessions are important and helpful because it all aims to one thing – for all medical students to graduate and become ‘safe doctors’.

So, I need to improve on my CSF – Data Interpretation. There are several skill components I need to cover to ace in this skill such as;

  • Working towards a diagnosis

  • Undertsand fully the lab reports for diagnosis – I had poor knowledge of normal values.

  • Excluding other diagnosis – KNow names of other responsible organisms.

  • Strategies to manage, including community infection control – what antibiotics to use

*having a structured approach of diagnostic reasoning*

The 2nd skill I need to improve was reading the partogram. I was informed that most people failed this station and this tells me that majority of us haven’t been learning it the right way. Partograms may not be used widely in clinical practice for god knows what reason, but it is an essential skill to master.

The examiner commented that I ‘seemed unfamiliar with the partogram’. Indeed, I was. In this station, I would have got better marks if I could comment adequately and confidently on;

  • uterine contractions

  • cervical dilatation

  • decent of fetal head

  • the poor progress

  • further management
